Won't return

Well, the man who runs this place is not particulary tactful, as he ignored my friend's verdict on the food due to the fact that he was not "fussy" (which I was, apparently he equates vegan with fussy)
Furthermore, last time I was there he served a dessert that was not on the menu, which was appreciated... yet he assured me that it was vegan, as it contained "huevina" and not "huevo" (egg). I ate it as I assumed he knew what he was doing, and I wasn't quite sure what huevina was. Turns out it's pasteurised egg. Sorry but that is inexcusable for a vegan-friendly restaurant.

We were hugely pleased to find this small, modern restaurant with great decor - and really great veggie food. The veggie lunch menu was fantastic value and everything tasted great and was well presented. Service was friendly. The best place we ate at over our 3 days in Bilbao. Highly recommended.

Pros: Well cooked food, Cosy and classy decor, Very close to train station

A small but very nice and quiet restaurant in Casco Viejo. It's also opened friday and saturday nights from 22:00 to 23:30. Try millet&veggies-balls, if possible. Doesn't accept credit card.

Pros: Very nice, Affordable, Delicious
Cons: Small, No credit card
