Came here looking forward to a tasty dinner judging by previous reviews. My very long review in short: service was bad and food was bland; would not recommend especially compared to other places in Madrid.
Sat down and was brought some bread in a basket - asked the waitress if it was vegan, and she replied 'no tengo ni idea' - she had no idea. She went and asked the man in the kitchen and came back saying it was.
She then brought me the menu and came back no more than 20 seconds later (no exaggeration!) to ask me quite brusquely what I wanted. I vaguely asked for the vegan plate because I hadn't had enough time to see that the menu includes 5 separate courses - soup, salad, main, dessert, and hot drink. She corrected me quickly and I hurriedly made my choice (the only vegan choice there was). I felt extremely rushed with her standing over me which was bizarre because I got there two hours before closing and they weren't busy at all.
The food is all pre-prepared and the soup and salad came very quickly. The soup - creamed cauliflower - was quite nice, the salad had various elements in it but the mayo was bland and there was a lot of it. I was about halfway through the plates when I looked up to see the waitress and the chef looking at me and obviously talking about how I was getting along with my food so they could bring out my next dish. I had just finished my salad and still had about half the soup to go when the main plate was brought to me. It consisted of brown rice and artichoke topped with roasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds, a chickpea casserole-type thing, and some cooked vegetables. It reminded me very much of a basic Hare Krishna-type meal. The rice was nice and the seeds added a great crunch, the chickpeas were savoury but just okay, and the vegetables were nothing to write home about. I felt like I could have cooked the entire thing myself just as well at home.
As I was sitting eating my meal a woman walked in and walked around the restaurant offering jewellery for sale. This was obviously an arrangement she had with the restaurant. Not sure if I was just grumpy by then but I didn't appreciate someone trying to sell me jewellery in the middle of my meal.
I turned down dessert as the meal was very filling, and I'm glad I did because the poached pears I saw going to another table looked about as squishy as they could possibly get.
When she realised I wanted to pay with my card not cash the waitress had to have the card machine fetched from the store next door which took a couple of minutes.
All in all I was not overly impressed, but the meal was filling even without the dessert and drink, it was certainly healthy and vegan, and at 13.50 not badly priced either. There are just better options in Madrid in my opinion.Pros: Healthy, Reasonably priced
