Excellent veggie restaurant few vegan options - Edit

This is an excellent veggie restaurant although there are few vegan options. The chick pea stew (callo) is excellent as are the seitan dishes; the chocolate tart is definitely worth a try!

Pros: Good food, pleasant staff, good atmosphere.

Cons: Limited vegan options.

We came back for a second time, so many vegan options! Loved the seitan scallops with lemon, but also burgers and batatas bravas.... bonus points for serving sangria without alcohol. Perfectly located in the city center. Would definitely recommend!

Pros: Many tasty vegan options, Friendly staff, speaks English well, Very affordable

Cons: Busy - it may take a while before you get served

Great food, nice place to sit - Edit

Had veg. Burger and marrocan burger with couscous, food was great. Also had tropical salad, which was lovely, but watch out for pink yougrt-like sauce, it was sweet and may not be to everyone's taste.

Pros: Tasty food, Good variety , Nice outside seating

Cons: People pass by trying to sell you things

Good value for its price - Edit

Canadu is located in the touristic Plaza de la Merced, next to the Alcazaba and near the house where Picasso was born.

The lunch menu is not expensive for such a touristic location (9.50 euro or 10.50 if you also want an appetizer). The food was nice, the gazpacho was on point and the callos were surprising (I think it is a great idea to use mushrooms as a meat substitute for this dish). The cous cous was a bit bland but it was still fairly decent. The staff is friendly and speaks english.

To sum up, Canadu is a very nice option in this part of the city in which the number of restaurants is overwhelming due to the huge amount of tourist who come to Malaga every year.

Pros: Nice food

Good value - Edit

Second time we've eaten at Canadu (many years gap in between). We've had a very pleasant experience. Firstly, the location is fantastic and the atmosphere buzzing, especially if you get the chance to eat outside. The service was impeccable and attentive. The food was good although not particularly exciting. There is a lot of potential, just some minor adjustments and it would be great. On the very plus side... the portions are on the large side making it very good value for money.

Pros: service, location, portion size

Old fashioned vegetarian food - Edit

Nice location with a number of GF options and a good understanding of coeliac disease. We had three main courses which were ok but in mine the couscous was dry and a bit dull and my friend's rice dish was cold in parts. Hope she won't be ill in the morning. There are better veggie places in Málaga.

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

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

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
