Great tasting food. - Edit

Really great tasting food and a bit of a different menu from some of the other places we tried during our stay, which was a nice change.

Worth a visit - Edit

Definitely book if you want to eat here. I was lucky enough to get a place at the bench but a lot of people were turned away. Had a five course menu for €15. Great place that seemed very popular. Would have been nice to have a little bit more fresh veges included in the menu I ordered other than the small side green salad. Otherwise was ready lovely and would recommend.

Pros: Vegan options. Good dessert menu.

The bad old days of vegetarian cooking still live! - Edit

I rarely write reviews but our experience at Bar Ecologico Gaia seemed so different from the reviews I read that I wanted to give another perspective. First, the restaurant itself is lovely--white painted stone walls, comfortable chairs, nice lighting. It was the food that was disappointing. The mushroom croquettes were tasteless except for an odd sweet sauce. The seitan was oily and tough and a bulgur stir fry had no flavor at all.

Lots of choice - Edit

It took me ages to choose as there was so much on the menu. I had the vegan croquetas with salad (two different types - one with apple and one with macadamia). Not the healthiest choice (very fried) but pretty delicious. The staff were friendly and brought a little tapa of bean stew and some breadsticks to the table too.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Great tasting menu midday for 15 EUR, Friendly service

Cons: Atmosphere: No music when I was there

Tasty vegan lunch - Edit

Had some tasty three-course vegan lunch for only €10.50. I could choose between several mostly vegan choices. The pumpkin soup, veggie curry and apple cake were good. Could have had some more spices. I also had some blonde cold beer with it which was just what I needed after walking around in the sun for a while.

Pros: Lots of vegan options Cheap Lovely staff

Cons: Could use more spices and flavors No outside area

Kinda average - Edit

Maybe we chose the wrong thing. But, my girlfriend's burger was plain. I got the seitan and tofu bulgar wheat, which was a little better, and at 12 euros for basically a medium sized plate of grains. We passed on dessert.

Delicious healthy food - Edit

We stopped here yesterday for lunch and we were so excited to have some tasty healthy food. We have had a lot of fried tapas while travelling through Spain and it's also very limiting when you don't eat meat. So having a full vegetarian menu was fantastic and really tasty options. The owners were very friendly and had good English so it was a lovely experience overall.

Fantastic food and incredible service - Edit

**This restaurant is owned by the same people as Organics Gaia, also in Seville, so I am copying the same review over, I had the same great experience in both places**

All food on the menu is labelled very clearly with allergens, which is fantastic. The staff are friendly and helpful, and are very clued up on what's vegan and gluten free. They speak English well.
Actually, most of the food is vegan and gluten free.
The male waiter Josemi is brilliant and puts a smile on your face with his unlimited energy and positivity. So is the girl that works there but not sure of her name- she works in their other restaurant too and she's lovely.
The food is delicious and not too expensive, and big portions.
Definately recommend!

Pros: Really friendly staff , delicious food , Staff totally clued up on allergens

Not a bad lunch spot! - Edit

My sandwich was fairly tasty, though my friend's burger was fairly bland. Service was slow but it was a busy day and only one of the waitresses was actually working. Overall though, not a bad spot for veggie/vegan options!

good vegan Spanish food - Edit

I'm a bit bewildered about seeing negative reviews for this place. The food was vegan approximations of typical Spanish dishes. It was excellent. You can either eat the menu del discuss(economy menu of the day) or a la carte. The vibe was nice, service was excellent. Mainly locals eating there... always a good sign. You need to get there early or book. Highly recommended.

Pros: excellent

Cons: none

good for organic vegan food - Edit

Te menu offers a big selection of vegan foods. I think all but one of the main dishes were vegan. also the tapas were mainly vegan and they also had some vegan desserts. We had a salad and the falafel. It was great to get vegan organic food which is local and seasonal, but unfortunately it was a bit boring.

Pros: almost all vegan, organic

Gaia - Edit

We found Bar Ecologico Gaia to be dark and the food bland. We had the vegetable soup with bulgur, and a plate of the day. I like to support any restaurant trying to cook healthy food but Bar Gaia needs some to add some spice and some soul to the food. We ate here once. We are a couple in our 60s and vegan for 4 years.

Pros: serves vegan/vegetarian food

our first vegan meal in Seville - Edit

We were looking forward to our first vegan meal in Seville, especially after reading the reviews - but it was all a bit disappointing. The croquets were mushy inside, as were my soya meatballs. My wife's 3 rice dish was pretty boring, my hot tea was lukewarm. Maybe it was an off night for the kitchen, but I don't think we'll bother eating here again.

A must do! - Edit

I really like this restaurante! The family owning it is super nice and they serve delicious food! We were there several times for breakfast and lunch and everything is so good and as a plus everything is organice (even the coffee and the beer;)) Try the Salmoreja and the vegan chocolate cake!
I'd definitely go back if I am ever in Sevilla again;)

Pros: excellent food, good value, nice staff

great value - Edit

With two great multi-course menu options, you can eat well here for a good price. A 5 course vegan tasting menu (with croquettes - loving croquettes here in Spain when I kind have vegan ones!) for 15EUpp and a 3 course lunch menu for EU9.95 - this is a great place to eat.

Cons: cake sadly a little dry - but the custard style pu

Great vegan food - Edit

This was the first vegan-friendly place we went in Seville, and it didn't disappoint. Lots of the tables were reserved even at lunchtime so may be popular locally. A small, friendly, down to earth restaurant specialising in organic and veggie food. Daily specials are available, we had the paella and some macadamia nut croquettes, both really tasty. Simple, well cooked food. Good craft beer selection. Try the croquettes! We were disappointed we didn't have time to go back to try the evening menu.

Pros: Simple but great tasting, Lots of vegan options, Nice friendly staff

Cons: None really

Excellent lasagna and salmoreja - Edit

I ate at Gaia twice during my three days stay in Seville. The lasagne was really great, with a lot of green vegetables inside and covered with a really delicious bell pepper sauce. Also the Salmoreja was something I am going to remember long. The other dishes were good as well and the rose wine was a perfect match with the food.

The service was very friendly, there was no difficulties with foreign credit cards and the bathroom was clean and spacious.

Pros: Great local twist in food, Friendly service, A wide selection of Yogi teas

Good food - Edit

Overall I will say I was pleased I had lunch here. I am so glad there even are vegetarian restaurants in the city.
There was a bit of a langugage barrier for me as a non-spanish speaker but the friendly staff and I managed to work out my order.
The food was affordable as I got one of the aforementioned daily menus consisting of a starter, a main course and a dessert for about €10. They have a decent beverage menu as well.
One con was it was a bit noisy inside the restaurant. But overall it's worth a visit.

Beautiful,clean,shop. Friendly staff. Tonight I will eat in the restaurant. Estoy muy Conte to que he encontrado este tienda. Mark
Updated from previous review on Monday February 15, 2016
The food was ok, beetroot soup excellent, but the rest was only ok. The burger was microwaved not fried. I gave it another go today and even though the place was empty at lunchtime they would not serve me and i slammed the door like a teenager. The whole restreraunt is messy and colourless. I would not go next time I am in Seville. Updated from previous review on Saturday February 20, 2016

RosarioChavez 28 May 2016 - SO sorry, the waiters changed often, cause most of them are university students, perhaps this day you don't see much people but it isn't usually, in Seville most people eat later. Sorry again we try to do the best way each moment.

many veggie and vegan choices - Edit

When abroad, I usually seek out the local veggie restaurants/cafes though a local place that gives us a choice of at least 2 or 3 main courses is always welcome. Gaia Bar screams its orientation at us. No shocks to find a menu of many veggie and vegan choices. Place was a bit quiet and it seemed to be mostly tourists/ visitors in. Maybe more needs done to attract locals? First of, they had virtually no wine in. All the cavas were gone and only one out of 4 white wines remained. Highlight of the starters was the beetroot Salmoreja. It was excellent - local cuisine with an interesting twist. The main courses were ok. We had the falafel and the taboleh with seitean. It was all passable. We were disappointed that there were no 'extras'. As the food was quite dry, some sauce would've been nice. A local fresh salsa? Or even just some jars or olive oil and vinegar that any bog standard tapas bar has? The local wine was heavy but delicious. No complaints there though it's strange that there was only ONE white or cava available. We were miffed though to be charged for the 'complimentary' basket of bread and crackers that we were given without requesting. Not fair. Simple. The decor is ok. Lastly, the menu was mostly their interpretations of foreign dishes. How about concentrating on local cuisine? Not all Andalucian/ Spanish food is about meat. Show it off please.

Pros: All veggie and vegan, the Salmorejo

Cons: Charged for the bread, Wine list almost exhausted

Good food - Edit

From other reviews we were looking forward to our visit here, unfortunately we were a bit disappointed when we left. The food was nice and of reasonable value though some things seemed to be a bit pricey, it also took a very long time to get our food. The thing that really let the place down was the waitress, the whole time we were there she acted as if we were an annoyance and that she did not want us there. There were only three couples in the restaurant at the time and it was the same treatment for all of us. Due to this we decided we would not return here during our vist.

Pros: nice food

Cons: long time to get food
