5th Avenida, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico
Great Food, Amazing Juices
Visited on 2nd June 2012. My girlfriend and I both had the seitan tacos and probably could of got away with ordering just one, the portions are huge. They were more than happy to wrap up what we couldn't manage and was still great at tea time. The juices are amazing and again are massive. Nice jungle garden atmosphere and a respite from the slightly mental street. Relatively expensive by Mexican standards but well worth every peso.
Östra Hamngatan 19A, Gothenburg, Sweden
Worth a visit
Visited on 22/09/12 for lunch & again on 23/09 for breakfast. It costs 79Kr for the buffet which when we went was made up of 6 hot dishes, 4 of which were vegan, plus the salad bar was totally vegan. They also do different burgers and filled rolls. The food was fresh and tasty, the place is on the main street opposite the shopping centre and the upstairs seating is a good place to sit and watch the world go by. My girlfriend noticed that they did for different sweet pies/crumbles so we went back the following day for breakfast. I had Rhubarb, she had blueberry, both with a vanilla sauce. I would recommend going here as by Swedish standards it represents value for money, the food is good and the staff helpful.
Calle 10, no. 351, Campeche, Mexico
Visited on 18th June 2012. My girlfriend and I both had the 'German' burrito, and a health shake, the burrito was very tasty, healthy and filling, the salad that came with it zesty and fresh. The staff were very friendly and there are a fair few dream catchers hanging from the ceiling (hence the name). As well as running this vegan friendly restaurant the owners have a handcraft store and offer yoga and massage.

One of the Best in Europe!!!
My Girlfriend and I visited Avocado around six weeks ago. I remember it like yesterday. I had roasted red pepper, stuffed with millet and vegetables, she had barley and vegetable cutlets. Both were amazing. We had cakes to take away, they were amazing too. The staff were super friendly. The prices are cheap. The space is clean, bright and inviting. Lots of locals were stopping by for coffee and cake. I can honestly put this place in my top 5 vegan restaurants in Europe and I've been to quite a few. If anywhere in the tri-city area you must visit Avocado!!!
Vilniaus g. 41, Vilnius, Lithuania
Visited on 02/12/11. I really liked this place, it was very friendly, had an alternative crowd/vibe and the underground setting is very cozy. There is not so many vegan dishes but the menu is clearly marked. It's mostly Indian based food and pizza. I had the fried eggplant which came with rice and salad topped with vegan mayo. It was cooked and prepared very well, I really enjoyed it. My mum had the zucchini curry with rice and she enjoyed that too. We stayed after eating for some beers - the beer here is great and the prices are amazing - the bill came to £15 for two main meals, 3 large and 2 small beers!! Would fully recommend!!

My favourite in central Gdańsk!
I've been to Gdańsk a few times now and for the centre of town this place has become my favourite. There isn't much between them but I slightly prefer the Bioway chain to the Greenway one. There are many tasty vegan options, I have yet to try them all but certainly aim to! When I've been here the staff have always been friendly and helpful, even if there has been a language barrier. It is amazingly cheap (at least if you are from western Europe). There is no alcohol on sale but many good health drinks. The place itself is kind of canteen-like and functional but feels modern and clean. If in Gdańsk you really should go here, you won't be disappointed!!
Prinsengracht 60-62, Amsterdam, Netherlands
I go to Bolhoed every time I visit Amsterdam (most recently just before Christmas). It is my favourite place to get vegan food in the city. Call me boring but I always have the vegan dish of the day. The last time this had a Mexican feel to it, I'm pretty sure it's been different on each visit. The restaurant is located in a nice part of the city overlooking a canal. The interior is kind of 'old-school' vege cafe but is cosy and warm (I always seem to visit Amsterdam in the winter). Others have mentioned that it is expensive, which to be fair it kind of is, but I find that when I eat here I don't need another meal that day - the portions are very generous. The staff are friendly and can explain any questions you may have. I fully recommend Bolhoed!!
Totoriu 3, Vilnius, Lithuania
Modern Raw Food Restaurant
Visited on 02/12/11. I have no idea why this place is listed as being expensive, two starters, two mains and two drinks came to £15 - for a westerner it is extremely cheap, especially considering how good the food is. The service was amazingly friendly and good English was spoken. The setting is modern but not uncomfortable. The menu is extensive and nearly all vegan. I had chicory with macadamia cheese for starters followed by beetroot ravioli with cashew cheese as a main. My mum had raw crackers marinated beetroot followed with crapes stuffed with cashew cheese and salad veg garnished with a herb sauce. We had a smoothy and a juice to drink. We couldn't help but try each others dishes and all of what we had was amazing! The only place I could compare this to is Saf in London where it would cost you probably 4 or 5 times as much. If you like raw food you must try this wonderful little restaurant!!!
6 Burlington Gardens, Westminster, London, England
Sorry I hate writing bad reviews but 8 quid for a small sandwich is just too much. Especially if it's not even that good. One for the shoppers of nearby Bond Street me thinks...
11 Islington High St, North London, England
No Longer Veg
I have been to this place a fair bit over the years under its different names. The last time I went (a couple of weeks ago) I was shocked to see that they now serve meat. I won't be going again. Shame.
92 Berwick Street, Soho, London, London, England
I've been going to Beatroot for years, it's probably the first vegi place I found in London. The reason I keep going back is that this place is so cool. The food is cheap, tasty and healthy. There's always planty of vegan options no matter what time of the day you visit. Over the years the various staff have always been helpful and friendly. I don't understand the negative reviews on Happy Cow, maybe people expect too much for around a fiver? Nearly every time I get the medium size box I end up carrying it around for half a day due to the generosity of the portions. It's been going now for 15 years, I hope they continue for many years more!
ul. Kościuszki 12, Sopot, Poland
Currently Closed :(
Visited Sopot yesterday and where Bioway is supposed to be there is a building site. Go to Greenway on Boh Monte Cassino 47 instead, it's very good and vegan friendly. I've put five cows because the Bioway chain is excellent elsewhere.
Trubarjeva 34, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Small Place, Big Menu!
Visited on 04/10/14. We both had vegi kebabs, these contain seitan, a great salad and good sauces. €3.80 each and worth every penny. Ate them in Tivoli park, really tasty :) It was difficult to decide what to eat, the menu is really big and everything sounded amazing!

Veg and Vegan Pizza Joint!
Visited on 28/06/11. We got here pretty late after a gig and although it's a little scruffy we enjoyed our time there and enjoyed our food. Lots of choice of pizza, ours were both a bit bland but not bad. Friendly guy who served us. Great place for a late night snack or a quick lunch.
London area, North West London, England
Best Vegan Cakes in London, probably the UK!!
I work in Camden so pop down to Cakes 'N' Treats pretty often for lunch or early dinner. I love their burgers, I love their bagels, I love their coffee, their soft drinks, the decor, the friendly staff...
...But the cakes are just mental! The best vegan cakes I've ever tried in the UK without a doubt! If I go there and don't bring one home for my girlfriend I'm in big trouble :)
Rua Ivens, 28, Chiado, Lisbon, Portugal
Visited on 06.03.10 & 07.03.10 (repeat visit 'cause it was so good!). Excellent vegan buffet in nice surroundings, kind of modern. Really tasty food, 6+ hot dishes, a soup of the day, and loads of different salads, sauces and sundrys like mini vegan pizza, deep fried polenta, roasted veggies, bhaji's and dough balls. also a wide range of deserts, juices, teas and alcoholic drinks. The day time buffet is 9 euro 50 and in the evening 12 euro 50, drinks and deserts are priced separately. The staff were friendly and spoke good english. Very highly recommended!
105 First Ave, New York City, USA

Am Dobben 35, Bremen, Germany
Fine Dining, Poor Service
Visited on 27/06/14. We were pretty excited about going to Fink after reading the last reviewers' review. The food there is amazing - true fine dining bursting with flavour. The menu changes daily. We had one paella and one moussaka main dish and swapped half way through, both were out of this world. The reason the restaurant only gets 3 cows is down to one waitress unfortunately. The first waitress who served us was very friendly and knew what she was doing. The second was neither. We waited for ages for everything - even being given a menu after arriving took an age. We ordered a desert that never came, initially as everything else took so long we just waited then noticed other people who had ordered desert after us getting theirs we realised it had been forgotten but by then didn't really want it. I then asked for the bill, I paid but then my change never arrived. I would probably left it as a tip anyway (€7) but that's not the point. I didn't complain, I'm not gonna get upset about €7 and certainly not gonna argue about it. A shame because the food here is truly magic.
