Good service. I got the lasagna and it was really really good and the cheesecake for dessert which was also quite good. Would recommend.

I visited this place with 2 friends of mine. The portions were good, the food was presented well and it was affordable. They also had a number of products on sale. Well worth a visit.
We came in here for lunch on a Monday afternoon. It was very busy, and to have a vegan restaurant that busy is pleasing but we did have to wait half an hour for a table. Staff were really helpful and friendly despite the clear pressure. Not sure if it is always this busy but perhaps worth booking ahead. Nevertheless it was worth the wait.We had the menu of the day which offered a good choice. Starters that we shared - lentil soup, salad - were fairly standard. Tofu rice dish for main was pretty good, and burger was just a burger but still nice. The menu includes a drink and the juices were really really good, and as for desert - yum yum yum -oh my the carrot cake was incredible. I left feeling full and satisfied.
This place wasn't bad by any means, but the food and service could've been better. While there was a large range of food options, some of it wasn't very nice (though some options were quite tasty). Furthermore, on some items the portion sizes don't seem very good for the amount that you get. The people there are nice, but at night time the service can be just a little slow. Would still recommend :)
Excellent choice of food, served in pleasant modern surroundings and served by friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Great value menu del dia. Take away available and products available for sale.
Busy vegan restaurant with friendly and helpful staff. Prices very reasonable. Especial Gourmet Vegan burger was yummy and the set menu was great value.
We went here on our last night in Granada and wished we had tried it earlier. We both got the menu which was very good value including three courses of food and a drink. The food was of very good quality and tasty and the guy who served us was very friendly and helpful. If we'd this place earlier in our visit we would have come back to try more of the menu.
I liked the food and especially the restaurant itself which is nice looking. It's good that they also have some vegan messages, for example on the menu. They have quiet a broad choice but most of the main dishes are made with either soya or wheat which makes it easy to create nice looking dishes for people who are not familiar with veganism but I personaly prefer not such supplements in my meal. It was delicious though, nothing to say about that.
This was a nice little cafe/restaurant not far from the Alhambra. There was a good range of choices on the menu, and the staff were friendly and helpful. I had a vegan burger which was decent and tasty, though not the healthiest thing on the menu. Desserts were a highlight, especially the tiramisu, as well as the delicious smoothies. All in all we had a good meal in a great environment.
We have been twice already and brought non-veg family with us too. It's got fabulous juices and we love the tostadas, the thick gazpacho soup, the croquettes, seitan dish and the smoothies. We will like go back the next few days as well :)
Found this oasis of 'real food' on the edge of all the tapas restaurants in the centre. Extensive vegan menu, not too expensive and well worth the little extra not to have to hunt for rare vegetarian dishes elsewhere ! And unlike many veggie restaurants it is open all day and evening. Friendly staff who understand English; and attractive interior decoration.

Good restaurant, easy to find its location, lovely staff. I highly recommend to order the dishes are vegan and not try to imitate meat dishes like hamburger.
My partner and I visited Hicuri 3 times over our 2 day stay in Granada! Twice for lunch and once for dinner. The menu is the same so we enjoyed trying all of the dishes. I would recommend the lasagne and croquettes they are both very tasty! Every juice and smoothie we tried we really enjoyed, the smoothie with peanut butter is amazing! The staff are very friendly and speak great English.
The only downside to this restaurant is that there is a lot of mock meat. I prefer fresh vegetable dishes over mock meat but understand why they use these
Proteins. Thanks for feeding us for two days Hicuri!
I really love this restaurant. I went there few times for breakfast, dinner and lunch and I always found everything delicious. The juices are something fantastic!! The sweets too. Hope to came back soon!
We ate dinner and lunch here while in Granada. The food was all very good with generous portions. The tostados (toasted bread topped with avocado, etc.) were very good. I really enjoyed the couscous veggie meal and my husband liked the lasagna. Most of the items on the menu contain tofu/seitan which I'm not a big fan of but there were a few other options. The chocolate cake and tropical smoothie were really good. They have a combo on the menu where you can pick a starter, an entree, a dessert, and drink for 12.80 euro. The servers were all friendly and spoke some English. The location is close to Plaza Nueva so it's convenient if you're in the tourist area of Granada.
This is indeed what you would call a good restaurant. The environment is very friendly and relaxed, the food is of great quality and you can tell the staff puts their hearts into their jobs. They even have a small corner reserved to selling a good variety of vegan goodies (cheese, sausages, frozen meals, snacks) for actual cheap prices - however, I'll have to disagree both with the classification of "inexpensive" this place holds and the generous portion sizes it was claimed to have which are quite relative concepts anyway (the majority of restaurants in Granada are quite expensive, yes, but that doesn't make Hicuri cheap and I like to feel full after a meal, which resulted in me feeling compelled to buy an entrée and a dessert).
Many people make reservations in advance and the place is busy (when I went there about 4 tables were being prepared) so perhaps try and come a bit before regular Spanish eating hours.
I got the "pollo" burger for 6,90€ and it was very good but didn't leave me full.
It has lots of things on the menu and all sound good.
The bad thing, in my opinion, is that, for main dishes of around 7€, the portions were not big enough. Since it seems too have a lot of clientele I hope they change that.
The place also sells vegan stuff like cheese and other goodies.
Food was excellent; portions were large; service perfect - that about says it all. For a Wednesday lunch the place was packed. As best we could tell we were the only non-Spanish people in the place. At one table there were 6 older women showing pictures (grandchildren we think); at another table were six adults and two toddles (who were wandering around the restaurant food in hand) having a leisurely lunch, at another table a young couple; my point - the type of dinner was very varied and everyone seemed to be enjoying their lunch. As they say, eat were the locals eat and you rarely go wrong. Eat here and you will eat right.
Cool, artsy vibe. Very good menu. The Vegan cheese on the tostadas was the best I have tasted. Thank goodness I bought a few to take away for my train journey. Nice deli fridge to buy packaged goods from. I stocked up. Great friendly service. Excellent location en route to the Alhambra, it's basically at the foot of it - near the bus stop that takes you up to the palace.
One of the best vegan restaurants I had ever been. They have a very varied menu, with a delicious menu of the day. Hicuri offers many options not just for lunch, but breakfast or even if you want some snack.
Don't forget to see the products in the store.
This was my first taste of what vegan food is like in Granada. The place was quite busy for a Monday morning, and the staff was polite. But the food was nothing extraordinary, especially in comparison to what vegan restaurants in Sevilla have to offer. I had sopa de garbanzos, lasaña vegana, and la tarta de chocolate as the plato del día. The soup was quite good, really. The lasaña was mediocre, but not bad. Perhaps I had high expectations because a previous HappyCow user had been raving about it! The tarta was alright, but a little on the dry side. The house white wine was very refreshing and the dipping sauce they provided with my tapa of carrots and crackers included the perfect combination of spices. I'm really looking forward to returning, and being able to try some more of Hicuri's dishes!
**I must have just selected the wrong dishes when I first went, because I've since returned and everything I've ordered has been extraordinary! The juices are delicious, the gazpacho is everything gazpacho should be, and the seitan and veggie dish was super tasty! Also, try the Tiramisu, it's the best I've had!

I have eaten there 3 times and I found the food to be amazing. The entree, the 2 types of soup I've had, the green detox smoothie, and desert all taste very gourmet - such wonderful flavors. On the menu, there is a reduced price for ordering an entree and 2 other items from a special section. The restaurant is very charming in decor - the photos do not do it justice. The staff is very helpful, friendly and attentive. The only thing is that sometimes the service is slow - not because the waitress is inefficient - she is in constant motion and seems to be well attuned to everyone. It could be because I went during the busiest time or maybe they are short staffed. Their hours are longer than other restaurants in Granada. Most close about 2 hours earlier for siesta during the day.

The food was not special and actually it wasn't even hot when served but I still think this place is a nice option for vegan food in Granada as the value for money is good.
The staff is also really friendly.
Staff are really friendly and attentive to what you do/don't eat and made me a dish especially to my needs (vegan/dairy & gluten free). Great smoothies too, including fruit, green and milk (soy available). Wide range of veg/vegan dishes off the menu and the daily menu also have choice. Nice chilled vibe.
We went to three vegan places in Granada and this one was our favourite by far. The atmosphere is great. The waitress is super nice and the food is the best. It was so good that we had to go back a second time. I had the oriental seitan and a crepe with banana ice cream and chocolate sauce for desert. The second time I had the burger which was the best veggie burger ever (because of its delicious salad creme). I can only recommend this place! Prices are good. Mains, deserts and drinks for 2 people around 25 Euros.
We visited Hicuri in May 2013 while in Granada. The menu seemed entirely vegan, which I loved. So lots of options. We ate inside and we were the only ones there, though it was early for Spain (7pm). The inside wasn't great - we definitely would have preferred outside seating. We ordered several dishes - falafel, curried seitan, cous cous, with the chocolate crepe for dessert. Everything was pretty good...though not the most flavorful or seemingly fresh. The staff was nice and helpful.
we have been there in summer 2012. the food was the best food during our spain trip (some cities). really nice choise and it was very delicious and the price was ok.
atmosphere was nice, not too many people and the waitress was very kind.
We had a pleasant lunch here and returned for dinner the next day. The waiter was careful to ask what kind of vegetarians we were and what we could eat and not eat. There were lots of choices on the menu. A number of items were marked as gluten free. Friendly staff, pleasant decor and warm room for December.
Not sure why this is listed as having meat dishes. It was all vegetarian with a good amount of vegan options when I was there earlier this month. I had a wonderful Asian noodle dish with seitan. Freshly prepared I was happily surprised to find it tastier with delicate flavors that I was not expecting. I was in a rush to make it to my appointment at the Hammam and they were able to take care of me. A great local spot. Hours have changed recently so be sure to double check.
There are not many vegan options in Granada, and that is the best I have tried so far. The waitress asked several times the cook about the ingredients so that we could eat, and offered some solutions whenever the dish had something that was not vegan. Prices are OK.
This is mainly vegetarian restaurant that has some meat dishes. Delicious starters and mains. Deserts are a bit bland... and I'm not sure about the hippie decor.
Good food and cheap.
i had the feeling that this resto was better for those in the know... some of the "rules" regarding the prix fixe menu, opening times, and what could be served at certain times (even where we were allowed to sit) were under some sort of established formula an outsider could not fathom. however, the food was decent for the 12.50 euro price (3 courses), and the waiter was patient and spoke english. smoking indoors (perhaps even 420 friendly?) but the ventilation was so good it didn't bother us.
smoothies & driinks only until dinnertime, about 8 or 9pm. small menu, which indicated a breakfast. seasonal gazpacho only (apr-oct). Tried the soup, salmon on rice, coucous with avocado, and a mystery wine.
My wife & I arrived hungry, a short while before they were changing from Breakfast to Lunch. We had a fine tea & toast as we briefly waited for mixed vegetables over rice. The staff was singing & dancing to the radio as they changed meals & menus. Great decor & ambiance. It wasn't elegant or gourmet, but it was very satisfying.
This wonderful cafe advertises on their card that they specialize in vegetarian cuisine and teas. Their tofu with spinach and whole rice is absolutely delicious and only 5.50 eur. Their couscous with vegetables is also quite good and is available for the same price. Although not 100% vegetarian, it's some of the best food a veggie will have in Granada. Unfortunately, like nearly every restaurant in the city, they allow smoking which can occasionally ruin an otherwise great experience.
