We were looking for a special restaurant to celebrate my big birthday, but didn't have high hopes since our previous experience of eating out as vegetarians in Spain has mainly been disappointing.
The menu was extensive and varied, including some very inventive and original dishes, as well as the restaurant's version of more recognisable dishes (eg. lasagne). We chose the former and were delighted with all our dishes - pumpkin, orange and ginger soup, beetroot with 'caviar', smoked potato parcel and salad with coriander ice cream. We were glad we didn't resist desserts, including the fabulous gingerbread mousse with cherry sauce. All the food had been created and made with love and care. We were also pleased that most is locally sourced and organic.
The setting, decor and atmosphere are all lovely, I really liked the mosaic around the bar.
We were glad we had booked in advance since the restaurant was full (and too cool to sit outside). The service was friendly and personal. Our table was by the door, which was frequently being left open, but, without prompting, the friendly and attentive owner offered to move us as soon another table became free.
I highly recommend Bellaverde and urge you to support this lovely little restaurant, it's a real gem.
