Good Food - Edit

We have been here twice and the food is good. The first time we had lunch and the set menu they offered. The dessert was disappointing with the baked apple but the first course was good. Later for dinner, we had a la carte and there were several vegan options.

Pros: central location , menu marks allergy , good set menu

Cons: would be nice to have more vegan options

Excellent food and very popular - Edit

This restaurant is located in a pedestrian area with lots of other places, but is the only veggie one. It is very popular and for good reason. My husband, who is an omnivore, had what he called the best veggie burger of his life. I had the scalloped seitan and it was absolutely delicious. Also had the chocolate tart dessert, which was decadent. Get there early for dinner or make a reservation.

Pros: Great food

Cons: Can get very crowded as the night goes on

Great chocolate cake! - Edit

The first time I went to this place was 4 years ago. I was happy to see that this place still exists!

The staff was fine but not great. We ordered hamburgers which itself was really good but lacked of sauce and the cheese was just a slice of package cheese -- a little bit dry but still good.

There weren't too many options for vegans, still enough for going once-twice :)

Chocolate cake was great!!!

Pros: Location, Good food (mostly)

Cons: Could have more variety for vegans

5 stars - Edit

Delicious food, good range of vegan food including a lovely chocolate cake for dessert. Portions big enough to share between two. Staff are really friendly and speak excellent English which is handy if your Spanish isn't good.

Pros: Good vegan menu, Friendly staff, Delicious food

Cons: None

Soup was awesome! salad was good size but weird dressing - Edit

Super location, lovely outdoor seating! Great options for everyone, and a set menu you can chose from. Also, on Monday's and Friday's there is a pianist inside, which was so nice to listen to.

The only downside was my tropical salad dressing. So many lovely fruits, but the dressing tasted like cool whip, which was just a bit strange, but I think that's just my personal taste. My boyfriends cous cous was awesome though!

Pros: pianist inside, lots of vegan options, outdoor seating

Hearty food at good prices and attentive service - Edit

We were a party of 6 and had a range of different dishes, from hearty, tasty soups to massive Greek salads. Wide variety of main courses. Good range of wines to choose from at very reasonable prices The service is unobtrusive but attentive: they were concerned that one of us didn't finish our Greek salad and were worried we didn't like it A real gem!

Pros: Excellent service from friendly staff, Good value, Excellent food

Very tasty food - Edit

During my few days' stay in Malaga last fall, I ate here two times and tried several dishes.
The food is great!
Atmosphere was also nice.

Unpleasant - Edit

Gazpacho was good, almond soup also, but the small pot was filled with grapes, so there was not much soup. Salad was with corn and asparagus not fresh but from the can. Waiter did not bother to give us a feeling of being welcome. Free WiFi, but pretty slow. Many guests did not finish their meal, whatever that means... It took a while to pay the bill as there seemed to be an insufficient number of personnel. New guests queued for a table while the money was on the table, but still nobody cared. Not many vegan options in Malaga which could be a reason for this place to be packed.

Great location and great food - Edit

We were hesitant at eating at Canadu after reading some of the reviews but I'm very glad we chose to try it and decide for ourselves.
The food was both tasty and plentiful. Lots of vegan choices plus delicious virgin sangria so I didn't feel left out just because I was pregnant.
I would look forward to returning here, a great eatery indeed.

Pros: Varied vegan options, Great location

Cons: none

Great location - Edit

Nice location, vegan options, including vegan cheese, meat substitutes etc. Would appreciate if more of the vegetarian dishes could be veganized, for example the lasagna, mousaka.. But all in all a nice dinner experience, and friendly staff. Would recommend!

Not really good - Edit

The Place is nice, you can sit outside.
We had Seitan with rice and the Vegan Hamburger. The Burger was ok, but not good. The Seitan was really bad, kind of slippery, no salt, no other herbs or spices, only garlic and the garlic was fried to long. The rice was just rice, nothing more, no salt as well.
maybe the vegetarian dishes are better, but this 2 vegan dishes were bad.
It was expensive, too.
We were really disappointed.

Pros: Place

Cons: Food, Price

Fun, great location, good food - Edit

Canadu has a great location right on the square Plaza De La Merced (I think that's the right name) near Picasso's birthplace. They have lots of indoor/outdoor seating. We sat outside so we could enjoy the fresh air and watch all of the people milling about. It's touristy I guess, but it was very enjoyable just the same. There's plenty of vegan selections and all of the food I ordered was delicious.

Amazing vegan and veggie food! - Edit

We had a wonderfully indulgent time at Canadu. Truly delicious food, lots of clearly marked vegan options, which is really exciting, and superb service. Mains were around €8, but really good value for money. Great setting and lovely atmosphere. The vegan seitan was perfect and the vegan chocolate torte was a mammoth undertaking; maybe the best vegan chocolate cake ever!

Pros: Food!, Vegan options, Service

Cons: Moderate price

Very nice lunch in Plaza de la Merced - Edit

A note of explanation: I've been in Malaga for a long weekend with my girlfriend with the intention to eat at the four vegan/vegetarian places of the city. Unfortunately one was closed, therefore we managed to eat at (in order of preference): Cañadú, El Piano (but it was "almost closed", see below), and El vegetariano del Alcazabilla.

This was our first best. We had lunch there and I ordered a menu del día (starter, first course, second course, and cake/tea): by the end of the second course I was super full and could only order tea, a cake would have been too much! However, the food was good and not heavy. It's also very cheap, 9.50 EUR.

There were lots of vegan options for the starters and first courses, then 50% of the second courses were vegan, but there were no vegan cakes (only fruit and tea were vegan).

This was definitively our best vegetarian experience in Malaga (but we couldn't try the Vegetariano El Calafate).

Pros: Big portions, not heavy food, Great location

Cons: No vegan cakes when I was there

Super tarte chocolate in strategic location - Edit

Nice vegan meals, we had seitan with rice and salad, vegetable soup, potato with spicy sauce, 2 tea and chocolate tarte. Everything was tasty. But when I looked to the plates of vegetarian customers - I was disappointed: vegetarians had huge portions! Please give more food to vegans!
Complimentary olives and breadsticks as starter is good idea!
Lifehack: tea is in small pots, ask for hot water extra)

Pros: Perfect chocolate tarte, Location, Reasonable price

Cons: Small vegan portions

tasty food, miserable staff - Edit

Been here a few time as the menu of the day is so cheap, only 10€. My partner said the vegetarian options were decent enough, the vegan options were more hit and miss. Also, the vegan dessert option for the menu of the day is literally a piece of fruit, or a roasted sweet potato, nothing else added, just roasted. Which seems a bit lazy to me.

The staff that work there for some reason are miserable as hell.

Chocolate brownie desert (on the regular menu) is amazing!

Saved by the pudding - Edit

Rainy day in Malaya so sitting in sounded like a good idea,until one of the waiters decided to bleach the front step!! Over lunchtime?seriously???
Sat outside instead and had the longest lunch in history, as the service is far from attentive.
But!!The Vegan Chocolate Cake was to die for!!!

Pros: Modestly priced, Pudding

Cons: Service, Staff

Great lunch! - Edit

I live in the Malaga province and every time a go to Malaga city during the week I have lunch at Canadu.
The food is fresh, tasty and organic (menu in English too).
At lunch time they have a great "menu del dia" offering various courses for less then 10 euros including dessert.
The bread they serve comes from a local baker that I know personally and I can see that they always try to offer seasonal and local ingredients.
Vegan options are always available. Enjoy!!

Pros: Very close to centre/Picasso Museum, Reasonable prices, Fresh juices

Cons: Opens at 13:30, Can be full

Delicious experience - Edit

Located in Plaza de la Merced, in the heart of Málaga, Cañadú is the best vegetarian restaurant in town. For lunch we got a menu del día with four different courses. The outdoor terrace was very busy while a pianist was playing inside. Vegan dishes are marked in the menu. Friendly staff although very rushed.
Best seitan and green pepper sauce ever! large portions and very moderate prices. Great for non vegetarians too!



Situado en la Plaza de la Merced, en el corazón de Málaga, Cañadú es el mejor restaurante vegetariano de la ciudad. Para el almuerzo nos dieron el menú del día con cuatro platos diferentes. La terraza al aire libre estaba llena de gente mientras un pianista estaba tocando dentro. Los platos veganos estaban marcados en el menú. El personal era amable, a pesar de que tenían mucho trabajo.
El mejor seitán y salsa de pimienta verde! grandes raciones y precios muy moderados. Excelente para los no vegetarianos también!
