The best - Edit

El mejor vegano calidad precio, si buscas darte un capricho de fast food, es tu sitio. Es barato y esta buenísimo. Vete 15 min antes de abrir porque hay cola antes de abrir y coger sitio es complicado.

Pros: Muchas opciones

Cons: Ninguno

One of my favourites in all Madrid - Edit

Just as they say in the menu, b13 is a bar, not a fancy restaurant but more of a friendly place to have great cheap fast food. The staff is great. We go often, they already know us and they are really nice to us (and everyone). If they don't seem to be keeping an eye on everyone at the bar is because they are really busy, the bar is always full with lots of people waiting, (as it is a little small but totally worth the wait in my opinion) so they don't usually have time to offer their full attention. But that's ok with me, honestly.

Buena comida y buenas raciones - Edit

La comida está muy rica, se llena rápido el local y te toca hacer cola pero merece la pena. Los platos son contundentes, no te quedas con hambre, cosa que se agradece, y de precio están muy bien. Repetiré sin duda.

Pros: Comida con conciencia Sin maltrato animal

Bestial - Edit

Hace poco visité por ptimera vez el B-13 y aunque ya tenia las expectativas altas las superó con creces. Comimos muchísimo, lo queriamos probar todo y aunque era bastante comida estaba tan buena que no podiamos dejar nada. Creo que todo el mundo deberia ir alguna vez, hay que hacer cola pero os aseguro que merece la espera.

Pros: Comida excelente y buen servicio, muy atentos y am, Buen ambiente y decoraciones llamativas, Todo estaba muy limpio

Cons: Es un local pequeño, Tuvimos que esperar

There are better vegan restaurants around. - Edit

The B13 burger was awful- served cold, the bun was the worst and the burger was more like a mash.
There was no place to sit and no one even paid attention to us.

Can you say AMAZING? - Edit

This was my favorite place I’ve ever eaten at. The food was exactly what I wanted—Madrid bad food that was full of flavor and made me feel like I wasn’t missing out on anything because it was just so amazing. My husband, who’s from Madrid and loves the food there, said it was spot on and just as delicious without any of the animal products. I am just dreaming of the next time I’m going to get to visit! The prices were great, the atmosphere was fun, but it was a pretty small place (not unusual for the city, so it was fine). Highly recommend doing the small plates/tapas and getting to try those rather than a main dish.

Still dreaming about the food I ate there, specifically the cakes.

The best vegan restaurant in Madrid! - Edit

Cheap and nice junk food! Bocadillos, burguers, Spanish omelette (scary, so similar to egg version) and many other typical Spanish vegan versions food, Estrella Galicia ;) and good environment! Only problem is that is always so busy and you might have to wait a bit for a table.

Pros: Cheap, Junk food, Centric

Cons: Busy

A must go for veganism in Madrid - Edit

Great place to eat some copycats of "omnivores" food. Most of the food is frozen but you're not coming here for a classy dinner. Try vegan calamari, chorizo, bacon and seitan sandwiches, any of their many hamburgers and several tapas, but the best choice is to order the homemade spanish omelette, which is delicious.

Probably the cheapest place to eat vegan in Madrid and sometimes you can't even finish your plate.

If you want to get a table, get there 5-10 minutes before they open.

Pros: Tasty food, Great portions, Very cheap

Cons: Small place, Sometimes it's closed without previous notice.

Convenient for a quick bite but rather simple junk food - Edit

I was very excited to go to B13 considering the reviews and the fact that the first Sunday evening when I tried, it was completely full. But finally, I was a bit disappointed by the food. You have a large choice of vegan junk food (and more), everything looks appealing but when you get it, it is rather simple and not very original in terms of taste. You can do most of their menu at home with products bought in a vegan shop. The very good point is that it is very cheap, and quickly served. If it was organized as a bar, it could be a nice place to have a drink with friends. But the current interior layout, because the restaurant is very small, does not let the possibility to create a nice bar atmosphere where you wanna stay. Ideal for a quick and cheap bite of vegan junk food, but nothing more.

Pros: 100% vegan, cheap food, junk food, quick service

Cons: small, simple and not homemade food, no bar atmosphere

Cheap and friendly atmosphere - Edit

This place is just next to Gran Vía, just in the centre of Madrid. The atmosphere was quite nice, full of friendly Spanish pals. Food wasn't so tasty but wasnt awful either. The very good thing is that you can eat here by almost half of the price of other Madrid vegan restaurants. If you want to fill your empty stomach at a very affordable price, this is your place. Plus easy to talk to people and meet nice people, as it might be crowded and there will be people in and out, very informal atmosphere

Cheap food and an amazing atmosphere - Edit

B13 is (in their own words) not a chic restaurant, but a friendly bar where you can get filling food and have a good time with your friends.

It is located in a very centric location, next to Gran Via, one of Madrid's main streets. This contributes to its popularity, making it necessary to go early if you want to get a table.

The food is quite nice, ranging from different sandwiches (bacon, chorizo, squid, seitan, ...) or burgers to typical spanish starters as patatas bravas (fried potatoes with a spicy sauce) or tortilla de patatas (spanish omelette). The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere of the place is just great.

In my opinion. B13 is more than worth a visit if you have a craving for cheap, "junk" food and find yourself in Madrid.

Pros: Cheap food, Great atmosphere

Cons: Very crowded

Llenísimo - Edit

Si quieres visitarlo mejor hazlo temprano. Resulta bastante dificil encontrar sitio (o que quede tortilla :( ). Esto habla a favor del B13, siempre está lleno y animado. La comida está muy bien, aunque para mi gusto tiran bastante de sucedáneos. Si echas de menos el bocadillo de calamares ¡el B13 es tu lugar!

Pros: El ambiente, El precio

Great food in a crowded place - Edit

The food is really good and the prices are amazing, but it's really hard to get a table if you don't come really early or late and it doesn't let you make reservations.

Totally must go if you come to Madrid, if you don't mind waiting to get a table.

Pros: Great food, Great prices

Cons: Crowded, Can't make a reservation

Low-cost traditional Spanish - Edit

My favorite Spanish style restaurant. Some of the best mock-meats you'll have, hands down the best potato omelet in the vegan world and the cheapest you can eat vegan in Madrid. Really, it's impressive the flavor and texture of its garlic unchicken, calamari, and some local specialties like croquetas. The bar itself is tiny and gets full easily, the staff is usually busy and is not very nice, and some dishes feature pre-made seitan or frozen onion rings (avoid them). But the sheer quality of the food deserves 5 stars. Oh, save room for dessert.

Pros: Mock meats, Spanish specialties, cakes.

Cons: Tiny, noisy, unfriendly staff.

Un clásico. - Edit

Parada obligatoria si visitas Madrid, y habitual si eres de la ciudad.

La comida está muy buena y es barata, la relación calidad precio es una de las mejores de los veganos de Madrid.

Los platos son rollo "fast food", pero nunca decepcionan y al final es lo que much@s buscamos. Hay bocatas, hamburguesas, plato combinado, pincho de tortilla (también las venden enteras por encargo, como las tartas), croquetas...

Hay que tener en cuenta que es un bar pequeño y se llena en cuanto abre. Si vais a ir es recomendable estar unos 15 minutos antes de que abran para coger sitio.

La estética del bar es punk, algo que personalmente me encanta. Un detalle es que tienen una zona para dejar folletos o tarjetas, donde se pueden encontrar mensajes antiespecistas y difusión de otros lugares veganos.

La decoración es muy sencilla, de taberna. Sin florituras.

Por último, decir que la atención es estupenda. Todas las veces que he ido, y son muchas, han sido geniales.

Altamente recomendable.

Pros: Completamente vegano
