C/ Zorrilla, 11, Madrid, Spain

Good food, freshly prepared

13 Dec 2006

I have just come back from a trip to Madrid with my girlfriend who is vegan. We went to this restaurant for a hearty, long lunch after a morning of tramping round museums. I thought the restaurant itself was nice and intimate, the service was prompt and polite, they spoke English and were very happy to help us work out what was and was not vegan. The food itself was fresh and tasty with ample proportions, the bill was reasonable. I really enjoyed eating in this restaurant and would definitely go again if I am ever in Madrid.

72 Rue Cardinal-Lemoine, Paris, France

Delicious and different

21 Apr 2006

I went to this restaurant over the Easter Bank Holiday with my girlfriend, who is vegan, and another couple who were not vegetarians. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was great. I had a 'complete plate' which consisted of a variety of cooked grains, raw and cooked vegetables, tofu, tempeh and seitan. It was delicious, the tofu was incredible, it was made into a quiche type thing with vegetables in it, the best tofu I have ever tasted. The pudding was a bit random, but still very tasty. We lingered for quite a long time drinking wine and never felt rushed. A very enjoyable, healthy, tasty and different dinner.

C/de Marques de Santa Ana 34, Madrid, Spain

Basic but tasty

13 Dec 2006

I have just come back from a trip to Madrid with my girlfriend who is vegan. We went to this restaurant on the first night of a light bite. The food was fresh and uncomplicated, the self-serve salad bar had a good selection of extremely fresh, tasty salad. There was however only one vegan main option which was a bit disappointing. The staff were friendly and spoke English and the house wine was cheap and good quality.

24 rue Rambuteau, Paris, France

Cosy, tasty and friendly

21 Apr 2006

I went to this restaurant over the Easter Bank Holiday with my girlfriend who is vegan. We picked it in advance of going to Paris and I booked it from the Uk. I am glad we did as it was very small and extremely busy! We were half an hour late so I phone ahead and in appalling Franglish apologised, they were very understanding and friendly. The food was 100% vegetarian with plenty of vegan options, I had a lovely goat's-cheese lasagne and my girlfriend had what she said was a great mushroom pie. Everything was fresh and full of flavour, and the bill was surprisingly low. I highly recommend this restaurant.

8, rue Xavier Privas, Paris, France

Essential for Lunch

21 Apr 2006

We ate here twice in three days and only failed to make it 3/3/ because we didn't have enough time to grab a parting falafel-filled pitta before our train left for London! Tasty falafel, good salad selection, quick, cheap and filling. If you have never been to Maoz before try it out. There is just about room to sit down but it is designed more as a take-away place.

Bordadores, 3, Madrid, Spain

Great presentation, food disappointed a little

13 Dec 2006

I have just come back from a trip to Madrid with my girlfriend who is vegan. We went to this restaurant for a dress-up-nicely romantic meal! The place itself is a vivid shade of green and was very bright, so not quite the romantic feel we were after! The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke English. The food ranged from very tasty asparagus bruschettas with aubergine puree to a really quite unpleasant mushroom risotto. The food also seems a bit re-heated, rather than nice and fresh, which was a shame. The presentation was out of this world, I have never seen so much visual effort put into vegetarian food. There were a number of vegan options. The wine list was small but the bubbly that we got was reasonably priced and very tasty. The overall bill was surprisingly high, but not unfair.
