The best restaurant in Madrid - Edit

While I was living in Madrid I went there for countless times because it's so cheap and tasty. Definitely my favourite place when it comes to price and taste.
Still dreaming about the food I ate there, specifically the cakes.

Pros: Price, Taste, Amount of food

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

Impresionante - Edit

Bar súper acogedor con camareros muy simpáticos. Las raciones son enormes y la comida es baratisima. Además, si ves que no puedes con todo lo que has pedido (lo que nos ha pasado a nosotros), te lo pueden dar para llevar. Para repetir la próxima vez que estemls en Madrid. ¡Y qué bocadillo de calamares!

Vegan Spain! ayyyyyyy - Edit

I have been going to B13 for a few of years now, and although I think there has been a slight change in the food lately( someone new in the kitchen?!) this Restaurant is worth flying to for my birthday every year!
I have had most of the dishes on the menu so I am going to give a detail review of the place.
My favourites are the Tapas: the Spanish Tortilla is a chunk of potatoes, brick looking like but light on the palate( I know, I know, a light brick, right? but you have to try it to see what I mean..); the Calamares made me question if I ordered some seafood by mistake, crispy crust, great flavour, the power of chickpeas for you.. I have had the Perrito Caliente on numerous occasion and it' s the healthiest by a mile, with fried onions and mustard. The puddings? well, cheesecakes are to die for, the caramel one is my favourite, but I also tried the strawberry one. Both have a puffy sponge and a creamy layer of queso ( I am still investigating what they use to make it..), the result is a light, guilt less dessert proving that milk isn't necessary to create great Patisserie...
As I read the comments, long wait for a table and rude waiters( I haven' met any in three years) can easily be overcome by Take Away option, which means you can have the best Vegan food while out in the sun or sitting on the balcony in your hotel room, at the end of a long day .
The only downside to my review is that I never take photos of my food, because as soon as it arrives on the table I take a bite to taste it and then it's covered in drool which makes it far form presentable ,LOLOL
The beers? Go for a Dark Estrella or a refreshing Mosto..
I can't fault the place, really, I would if I could! :D

Updated from previous review on 2017-05-20

Pros: Huge portions, cheap,great Menu choice, Nothing frozen and everything 100% Vegan, Take Away available

Cons: Yet to be found

decepcion absoluta - Edit

He ido muchas veces y no esperaba que no permitiesen la entrada a no humanos, pero así es.
Me ha decepcionado totalmente. No volveré.

Kukiaries 26 Oct 2017 - Dentro de que pueda sorprender que un bar vegano no admita animales no humanos creo entender bien porque en el B13 no lo hacen e imagino que es por el espacio... Yo pienso en Lisa, quien se agobiaba mucho en grupos grandes de gente, y no creo que si la hubiera llevado al B13 ella hubiera estado a gusto en la duración de la comida...

Best burgers in town - Edit

B-13 really has the best burgers. I used to come here very often. Good food for a good price. The people are very nice and helpful. I would recommend to take a dessert, the cakes are incredible.

There should be more places like this!

Nunca hay sitio y no te hacen ni caso - Edit

Tres veces he ido, tres veces me he vuelto sin comer.

Es muy pequeño. No se puede reservar. Y lo que es peor, el personal no te hace ni caso ni se muestra en absoluto amable o dispuesto a facilitar información sobre el tiempo que habría que esperar y la posibilidad de obtener una mesa.

Muy desagradables. No me molestaré ni una vez más en intentarlo.

Pros: Nada

Cons: Mala atención. Muy pequeño. No hay suficientes mes
