Respond to Review of Madre Tierra
Review: We have been living in Madrid for two months, and have tried all of the major vegetarian restaurants in Madrid. Some of them (Isla del Tesoro, for example) were pretty good, but we didn't really love any of them. Who'd have thought we would find such a great vegetarian restaurant nearby (30 minutes on the AVE fast train) in Toledo? Maybe we were charmed by the Toledo location (such a beautiful city, well worth a visit), but this restaurant was really good. It has a spacious and lovely dining room, and excellent service. They have a web site (www.restaurantemadretierra.com) and their menu is online. We had the Madre Tierra salad and the Risotto de Calabaza Dulce (sweet onion), and shared them. Entrees are quite large, so that was plenty for the two of us. Both were excellent -- fresh ingredients, beautiful presentation. We were tempted to order the lasagna with soy bechamel sauce, which looked good too. We had the brownie de nueces (walnuts) for dessert, which came warm with ice cream, and it was one of the best desserts I can remember having in a restaurant. The restaurant is popular, but reservations were not necessary on the Sunday afternoon that we were there. The menu has a mix of vegetarian and vegan dishes.
