Fine location, bad food

2 Posted on 08 / 19 / 2014

We had a meal and a (indeed great) beer under the outside arcade. The enthousiam of the waiters was not matched bij neither the quality nor the quantity of food: uninspired and not very tasty food, several items on the already lrather limited menu were unavailable and the size of the veggieburger allowed it to hide under a slice of tomato! Particularly amazing was the fact that the restaurant ran out of bread - in Spain, can you imagen!?

Pros: Location, Selection of beers, Enthousiatic waiters
Cons: Quality of food, Limited options of menu

Super location

4 Posted on 10 / 22 / 2013

We were pleasantly surprised to find a vegetarian (even vegan) restaurant on such an A location: at the foot of the street towards the cathedral. Many veg restaurants have to hide in lesser location. So in the sun, on the square we had an excellent menu del dia. Good choice, good portions, good taste.

Best Meal in Spain

5 Posted on 07 / 14 / 2012

We were staying on Costa Brava, and made the one-hour drive to Girona because B-12 had received such great reviews. It was well worth the trip, and by far the best meal we had in Spain. Great selection of craft beer and organic wine, mostly from Catalonia, and the food is out of this world. It's tapas style, with small plates including spinach cakes, tofu quiche, pumpkin/chickpea/sesame croquettes, artichoke croquettes, peppers stuffed with cream cheese, and lots more. The tapas menu is in English, but there were a lot of specials that were not included in the menu. Also great desserts and after dinner drinks. They have outdoor patio seating, and a large indoor dining area. Highly recommended!

Pros: Amazing food, Friendly staff, Great atmosphere

Catalonia veganised

5 Posted on 06 / 25 / 2012

Great place - lots of traditional Catalan dishes veganised! The menú del dia at lunch time was good value and interesting. Tapas at night was a bit more pricey, but worth it for the delicious and highly original vegan creations. Their motto is, 'The revolution begins in the kitchen!'

Pros: Catalonian specialities, Great desserts, Terraza

Great beer, mediocre food

3 Posted on 01 / 20 / 2012

We were really excited about trying this place out after all the great reviews, but were highly disappointed with the food.
The beer selection WAS amazing, and we had a great time trying out several beers! So, if nothing else, come here for the beer!! fantastic!!
The food, however, was very small and extremely bland. I greatly appreciate the beautiful presentation of the food, but it just didn't make up for what it lacked in taste.
We left hungry and not satisfied with what we ate.
In my opinion, if you are traveling and want to eat ONLY vegan and want to be 100% sure about it, this is probably the place for you. But if you're like me and care also about the taste, I recommend buying a pizza with no cheese somewhere else.

Pros: 100% vegan, great beer!, kind owners
Cons: bland, little pricey, not downtown

VEGAN PARADISE a must-go if you are vegan

5 Posted on 03 / 12 / 2011

I absolutely loooooooove this place!

Do not expect a restaurant setting, but more of a catalan style bar where you can have a croissant with a coffe in the morning, some resonably light lunch in the afternoon, and a beguette with a wide variety of deli and juices&drinks in the afternoon... oh yes and desserts to die for. If you are looking for a place to try veganised versions of authentic catalan foods, this is your place.

My only criticism would be that the food isn't obviously "home-made" (most of it) and they heavely rely on fake meats instead of being more imaginative in their creations.

Owner speaks both Catalan and English which is great! All in all, a fantastic place to eat, relax and get a taste of catalonia cruelty free.

Pros: Friendly staff, Great Value, Very quiet

Just the tonic!

5 Posted on 12 / 07 / 2010

We visited B12 in March 2010 and loved it! I can't remember exactly what we had but I do remember that it was delicious. We also had a dessert each, both of which were great too. They also had non-corporate soft drinks which was nice, and a range of vegan snacks to take away for later.

The decor is very nice, and the owners were really friendly and speak English too. There's free wi-fi too, which came in handy. We spent quite some time in there just enjoying the place!

If you're anywhere near Girona, it's worth the trip for a full meal or a quick snack. It's a real gem of a place.

Pros: Good range of food and drink, Friendly staff and pleasant surroundings, Free wi-fi

Great experience

5 Posted on 10 / 26 / 2010

We (me and mt ife and son) were in girona for 2 days and found this place on happycow, so thanx hc!
Great (all vegan) food and drinks, magazines on site, anticorporation mood, and unbelievably low prices. Try the altercola and/or the catalan biers absolutely.
Everything we ate was perfect.
Next time in Girona we'll eat here again definitely.
Five stars and more

Pros: Great choice, Fine food and drinks, Lowest prices ever
Cons: Not at all

This place was amazing! Definitely a highlight of our trip. It was so cool to be able to come here and choose anything from the menu, because it's all vegan! We tried the chorizo and blue cheese tapas, and came back next day for lunch. I had an amazing seitan steak on a vegetable puree. The cheesecake and the ice cream were to die for. Best of all, they have a big selection of delicious locally brewed beers. The price was very reasonable, and the guy who served us was really friendly and helpful. I hope I can come back to gorgeous Girona and eat here again...

Pros: tasty food, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere
Cons: none!

vegan delights!

5 Posted on 01 / 13 / 2010

this place is a true catalunian gem- in all the veggie/vegan restaurants i'v ever been to i have never found such a decadent array of vegan desserts! in a quiet sunny street with tables outside... they sell some of those very special ice creams (cornetto and magnum style ices for eg) and wonderful home made cakes (choc cheesecake!!)..(choc cointreau truffles & ice cream!!!). The savouries are also really good and surprisingly affordable. I had to come in here almost every day of my stay in girona it was that good, and tried some of the vegan tapas like pimiento stuffed with vegan cream cheese, fake chorizo, houmous & olives, vegan spanish omelette was a real treat! they do a variety of homemade burgers served in pitta bread with quinoa side which is different, healthy and tasty. great salads. my favourite thing was the butternut squash flan which was literally melt in the mouth gorgeous. the owners are really friendly too and have ethical literature and local political news handy by the bar. which serves local organic wines, lagers and bottled ales and ciders aswell by the way. you can even find westons organic here! what more could you ask for.....

Amazing!!!

5 Posted on 11 / 17 / 2009

Arguably the best vegan meal I ate in Europe. Spanish/Catalon cuisine plus other stuff. My only regret is not getting chocolate vegan croissants to go for the morning. Owner is super nice and is very willing to translate menu. Also, has a partial menu in English. Great location, walkable from Girona Cathedral. If you are a vegetarian in Girona you must go here!!!

Pros: delicious, friendly, location

Cheap food in cafe bar

3 Posted on 09 / 28 / 2009

A small cafe, 20 minutes away from the historic centre, but easy to find with the standard tourist office map. OK interior, a few seats on the street outside, but it's not really an eating outside sort of place. More a cafe-bar with food. Friendly waitress.

All veggie menu. I had a veggieburger in pitta bread. OK. Cheap: with a fresh orange juice came to less than €6.

Bliss

5 Posted on 08 / 11 / 2009

We walked the 15 minute walk from girona's gothic quarter to this and it was probably the wrong thing to do. you'd be well advisd to take the number 1 bus, especiall in the Spanis sun. However when we arrived we were totally blown away by this vegan restaurant. Admitedly we had spnt the prvious week around the beautiful area of Pals and Pallafrugel, however their beauty was not matched by its vegetarian fare. B12 seemed like a vegan mirage in a land populated by carnivores.
Theextensive egan menu appealed to all 5 of us (hard to do with three fussy children). Many tapas entries meant we could pick from a large selection. We were delighted to be sitting in such a great place. After a large meal, complete with desert, takeaway cake and ice creem we left B12 wishing it wasn't 80km from our base fr the holiday AND a 2.5 hour flight from home.
Go there if you can

Pros: extensive menu, all vegan, fiendly staff, could converse in english
