Lovely pizzas

4 Posted on 08 / 13 / 2014

I spent last week end in Tarifa with my girlfriend and on Saturday we had lunch at the Tarifa EcoCenter.

The place is big and pleasant, the waiters were amazingly friendly and smiley, that's always appreciated.

We had a look at the menu, a lot of choice although I guess it's a bit pricey. In the end we decided for a couple of pizzas, one vegan and one "del bosque" with mushrooms artichokes and mozzarella. They have a wood oven, and the pizza maker was clearly Italian (I'm 99% sure because I'm Italian and because he was making jokes in Italian...), and in fact the pizzas were really really good.

We also got some lemonades, unfortunately not fresh, but they use high quality organic lemonades in cans.

We enjoyed our time there!

PS: contrarily to a previous comment, I think that everything was vegetarian!

This place is one of my favourites. The inside decor is beautiful and has a very relaxed setting - there are lovely tables with coloured wooden slats covered by a glassplate which looks very sophisticated, candles and large wineglasses on top - a really big chalkboard with specials on them and the wines they have. It has a modern but romantic feeling to it.
The menu is in English and it has a decent amount of vegan options: the waitress explained the whole menu in English as well and was very friendly and patiently willing to inform us about what was vegan and what not. We had a lovely pizza baked in the wooden oven. For dessert I had a grape sorbet which was something quite special: among other ingredients it was crushed ice with grapes in a champaign glass with straw.

Furthermore, it IS a vegetarian restaurant, they serve don't serve meat!

Pros: Excellent food, Very nice staff, Beautiful restaurant

I had an amazing tofu and veg teryaki with rice and then chocolate truffly things (both vegan). Tastiest meal I've had in ages.

Pros: Nice food, cool centre
Cons: little bit pricey

Vegetalycual is the name of the restaurant at Tarifa EcoCenter. My wife & I split a nice salad and ordered 2 nice vegan rice & vegetable dishes -- paella & with mushrooms. Great tea & beverage selection. Friendly staff, though limited English. Fortunately, a former server was hanging out & able to help us.
It may be open for dinner only Fri & Sat, plus special occasions. It was showing a movie & open for dinner on the Thursday we were there.

Pros: several good vegan choices, friendly staff, great teas
Cons: may be closed most nights

I went to this restaurant with 11 people, so first let me say we weren't the average table. The menu is NOT terribly varied, so if you're not a fan of pizza, I wouldn't bother. The help wasn't all that nice, and it was very expensive.

Pros: veggie friendly
Cons: staff , pizza only, price

Looks small on the outside but big on the inside

I came accross the EcoCenter in Tarifa by pure chance and its a shame that their sign outside does not convey the fantastic food they make. They offer breakfast (Mo-Fr), Lunch (Tue-Sun i think) and Evening meals (thu,Fri Sat). There Pizzas are massive (enough to share) and they also have a lunch menu for around 10 Euros. I had a Creme of Broccoli Soup which was divine, Pizza Campensina and a fabulous chocolate tarte. After that I exploded so I recommend that you share. They have organic alcohol as well as conventional. The Green Juniper Gin with Tonic is recommended after a heavy meal... On Fri and Sat they have life music. The Ecocenter also offers massage, Yoga, German Bakery and lots more connected to Eco. Definitely a thumps up for me.

Pros: excellent food, relaxed atmosphere, a complete eco experience
Cons: hard to find, poorly signposted, hard to resist
