There were multiple vegan options at this lacto-veg restaurant (all dishes being egg-free), which was nice. For my set price meal, I got a decent miso soup, bread, and a plate that included a good homemade veggie burger patty (no bun), baked sweet potato (surprisingly good - cooked just right), and an avocado salad that was overly chilled. There was a marinara-style tomato sauce on the plate, presumably to dip the veggie burger in, but I didn't think the two went together, so I donated it to my lacto husband, who received a pizza with too much cheese and not enough sauce for his taste. There is no wine here, and although our server helpfully offered to find me an apple puree, there are no real vegan desserts. There is, however, a good variety of herbal teas, and for the lacto veggies, yogurt drinks.
The service here was slow, probably because one server was covering the entire restaurant, which made her job hard. On the plus side, the place is nonsmoking. There are better vegetarian restaurants in Barcelona, though if you find yourself in the area of Amaltea, there is no reason not to step in for one meal.
