Excellent

Really nice place to eat. Staff were very friendly and capable. They spoke good English and were happy and able to point out what was vegan and what was not. Fairly easy to find too.

Excellent and Reasonably priced

We stayed in Puerto de la Cruz for two weeks and ate here twice for lunch. The food was excellent and the service quick and friendly. It was great to find somewhere offering something different from all the other restaurants a lot of which offered exactly the same vegetarian options - pizza, pasta and a couple of tapas dishes.

El Limon offered a range of simple, tasty vegetarian and vegan food. Their homemade burgers were really tasty, as was their seitan dish and their tofu. They also do fresh juice combinations and none of it was "worthy". Highly recommended.

Good for veg* but no organic food

3 Posted on 11 / 04 / 2013

Good mix of fast food style but all vegetarian in a nice atmosphere located in a very nice building in the center of the city. They do not however serve any organic food. "This is a vegetarian/vegan restaurant" was the answer we received from the very polite staff when we asked if their food is organic. This was not enough for us. But if their food had been organic we would probably have loved it. They have been around for 20 years but should evolve and go the organic way.

Pros: vegan alternatives
Cons: not organic

we found it difficult to find vegetarian food in North Tenerife and then discovered El Limon---delicious and fresh dishes , vegan options and juices.
All this with friendly staff and not too pricey.
Not a mention of German Sausage!!

Pros: delicious, plenty , fruit juices

Not bad but not great either

3 Posted on 10 / 27 / 2011

Nice rustic cafe, and the service was pleasant enough. The fresh juice was very nice, although everything else we had was pretty average. The Quorn dishes were not available the day we visited, so we both had the vegetable kebab, which came accompanied by salad and a veggie sausage. The kebab and salad were ok but unremarkable, although the sausage was quite nice. We each finished with a piece of carrot cake, which was satisfactory, and to be fair, the portions were quite generous and reasonably priced. Overall verdict - Wouldn't rush to go back, but it's not one to be avoided either.

Pros: Location, Reasonably priced
Cons: Average food

Great vegetarian and vegan food

5 Posted on 03 / 07 / 2011

I spend 1 week in Teneriffa in february and visited Puerto de la Cruz, where I found El Limon. The service is super friendly (although their English knowledge is very limited) and informed me about vegan dishes. I got the dish of the day, which was a yummy soup with carrots an a main dish composed of seitan with mushrooms, salad with sesame and wheat with vegetables. The food was excellent and not expensive. I would abolutely recommand the restaurant!

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, great value

difficult to eat vegan

they don't speak english, the food isn't very good. The best are the fruits juices, taste the Strawberry !

    Hi Veganisator, I thought your input on this place was helpful. I gave their juice a try as well, but went somewhere else for dinner.

Such a good spot! nice decoration even! Very homey feeling, nice wait staff and delicious food! You have to try the "patatas de abuela!" they were so good. Had a great veggie dog as well. Highly recomended! all the sauces are vegan, even the mayonase!
Un situo buenisimo! Tienen que provar las patatas de abuela! eran increibles! volvi dos veces en 3 dias. tomé el "hot dog" vegana... rico! todas las salsas veganas, incluso el mayonesa!

Pros: taste sabor, feeling ambiance, patatas de abuela!
