First Review by Salight

my favourite! - Edit

I've travelled a lot and eaten in so many vegan places, Buenavida is one of the best! Especially if you like Italian cuisine, this is the place for you. It might take some time for the food to be prepared but its well worth the wait, and their cakes are just mind-blowing!

Okey, but a little disappointed... - Edit

I looked this place up while still home in Sweden .I saw the ratings and had quite high expectations.
Luckily I got to a hotel very near (neighbour building) and thought I would have a great stay here thanks to an all-vegan restaurant so close. But when I got there - during high season on Tenerife - it was closed. For two (or was it three?) days. !?

So the first day they were open again, I went from the beach earlier then I would have wanted because they were closing as early as 17:00, I arrived there at maybe 16:10 - then the staff told me they were already closed!!!??
There were some people sitting and waiting for their food, so I got so disappointed, I had been waiting several days to eat there.

I tried to negotiate and asked if I could take the food with me instead of sitting in the restaurant, and finally, they reluctantly agreed, but they said I had to wait for 40 min.

Two of the best(?) courses was not able to order any longer, so I got a burger and some fries, it was not the best I've had, the potato were good, but would of course been better if I could have eaten it right away instead of going back to my hotel.

I went there one more time, hoping to get there in time, and I did. I ordered a glass of wine and a starter and a maincourse. This time it was ok to order anything from the menu.

The starter was very nicely served, but it wasn't quite warm and was a quite small portion.
The maincourse, I had ravioli, was ok, but it was a very small portion (for 12 euros), not quite warm either and not so tasty as it could have been. It simply didn't taste that much.

I think the two waitresses could be a bit less stressed (and it would be nice if they could speak maybe a little more English, at least one of them, of course you could say I should know how to speak spanish fluently when in Spain, but I don't).
They could also be a bit more welcoming and serviceminded.

I think it was quite expensive for that small portions, but it was nicely/beautifully presented.

A very boring location inside a very empty mall.

Pros: All vegan food and drinks, Nicely presented

Cons: Not so good value, Small portions, Boring location

Amazing vegan food - Edit

The owner of this place is very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately due to their holiday this place was mostly shut during our holiday stay and the owner communicated with me via mail and recommended other vegan places for us to visit (places that were not on happy cow at the time - all rectified now!) We only managed to go 3 times during our stay and on all 3 occasions the food was really good. Definitely book a table before going, it is always busy! The lentil burger was my favourite along with the tortilla. Will definitely return.

Pros: Tasty vegan food, good portions , Friendly staff, Reasonable prices

Cons: It took 20 mins on all 3 occasions to get a drink

Amazing quality - Edit

We had veg sushis, falafels, gnocchis and a hotdog, and two slices of cake. It was so good that we ordered 2 pad thais with the sauce on the side to take on our flight the next day. And then again it was delicious!

Delicious, friendly, welcome - Edit

We travelled many miles just to have lunch at Buenavida Vegan and it was worth it. Perfect falafels, tasty houmous, excellent seitan, and the best chips we've had in ages. Vegan food without compromise, made by talented chefs. Friendly service too. It's popular, though, so expect a bit of a wait. In case googlemaps confuses you (as it did us) it's upstairs in a shopping centre tucked behind a row of shops.

Buenavida, Fañabé Plaza - Edit

Buenavida was 100% vegan and I could tell that it was a local hotspot because the restaurant was full of groups and empty reserved tables. That’s always good to see when you first get to a restaurant that you’ve never been to before. It was located in the corner of an empty shopping centre and we didn’t think we were in the right place until we heard lots of people chatting. That’s when we knew we’d found it! The food was presented rustically, and the water bottles even had the Buenavida logo on. I wanted to take one home! Buenavida’s menu changes from month-to-month and had a number of different starters, veggie burgers and salads on it when we visited.

What I ate: I ordered the quinoa and black bean burger with fries, and tried the toasted bread with north sea flavours starter. I wasn't too keen on the bread, it had some sort of paste, carrots and onions on it which isn’t what comes to mind when I think of ‘north sea flavours’!

Pros: good selection of food , cool decor inside, friendly staff

Cons: wish they had proper coke instead of organic flavo

Vegan Oasis at Tenerife South! Oasis Vegano en el sur! - Edit

No sé ni por qué escribo en Inglés! Como estuve leyendo anteriores opiniones😅. Supongo tendrá traducción al inglés automático.
Encontré este rincón encantador dentro del centro comercial. Sepan que tiene parking subterráneo.
Ayer pedí para traer a casa y perfecto! Si escribes un messenger a través del Facebook te responden en poco tiempo.
La comida está bien, la carta bien, no muy amplia pero yo feliz que por favor m haya un local Vegano cerca de casa. Nunca conseguí probar el plato del día fuera de carta por uno u otro motivo, se acabaron las setas... ahora no, solo por la tarde etc.
Pero me gusta mucho y lo recomiendo a todos los que quieran comer sano, limpio y rico

Amazing - Edit

Me and my mum got the bus from Los gigantes (where we were staying) to fanabe plaza! The food was amazing, I had never tried seitan before so I decided to go for the seitan scallops. These were served with some grilled cauliflower and salad. YUM! The cheesecake was tasty as well, it had a pistachio base, blackcurrant flavour and coconut on the top.

Pros: ALL vegan!, lovely cocktails

every cloud has a silver lining - Edit

- every somehow sad shopping mall has a place worth to go there.
Hidden on the first floor of the mentioned shopping mall, la Buena Vida offers everything a hungry vegan needs: a menu with a big choice of different plates. We tried burgers, one with a beet root patty and one seitan. Both were great, as well as the french fries and the papas arrugadas!

Pros: good portions, delicious food, moderate prices

Cons: well, the location

Super cozy and simple - Edit

It was such a cozy and small place in the middle of the mall center in Costa Adeje. The only vegan place around there. We enjoyed the delicious juices and food. The plate has got the perfect amount so you don't feel too full. The menu is small, so there are many things you can choose.
Staffs were great!

Pros: Juices, Raw, options

Cons: location

perfecto - Edit

Went with the ethcs.com team. First thing we noticed was the top quality water in glass home branded bottles and it was a good start. Quality of water matched by the food and the service! Lasagne and the ravioli were both incredible. Fried were super unique crinkled and crunchy. Hot dogs were delicious. Mint chocolate ice cream was to die for and the burgers to go were also a great idea. Top service from an awesome waiter who held down a complex order at the end of his shift and left us all super satisfied. 6 stars if possible. Thanks

Pros: food, water, service
