comida casera, nada especial

comida casera, pocas opciones veganas y no especialmente sabroso.
Pedí un plato veganizado y me lo sirvieron con queso por error.

homemade, not many vegan options, not tasty.
I ordered a veganized option and they served it with cheese by mistake.

Ambiente agradable

Cocina casera con no muchas opciones veganas, se echa de menos más variedad sobre todo en postres. El servicio es encantador y el lugar muy agradable.

Pros: Menú abundante a 10,50€

Si tu abuela fuera vegetariana

Comida de toda la vida.Sin nombres ni experimentos raros.

Del menú diario, todos los primeros eran veganos y de los segundos , la gran mayoría lo eran. De primero comimos lentejas y gazpacho, y de segundo unas hamburguesas vegetales(De seitán y verduras) que venían acompañadas de arroz.
De postre elegimos fruta.

Salimos llenos y pagamos 10,50 euros por el menú. El local se llenó(Fuimos un martes a comer).

Pros: Precio, Trato, Sano

Cons: Había pocas opciones veganas en los postres

Not especially tasty, not at all creative. Crouded, anyhow.

Cons: Limited vegan options, Not especially tasty, Often crowded

Nice home-made cooking

I've been having lunch here once a week for years, since it's the only vegetarian restaurant close to my office. They have a daily menu with a choice of 4 different starters (mostly vegan) and 3 different main courses (mostly vegetarian), so don't forget to ask the nice waitress. One of the main dishes is always a combination plate of rice, legumes, fresh and cooked vegetables plus some stuff most likely using eggs or dairy (like croquettes, tofu meatballs, etc.). This is always a good choice for vegans taking away the vegetarian stuff if the other two main courses are vegetarian. Cooking is spanish/mediterranean, unsophisticated and delicious. If my mum had been vegetarian, she would've prepare dishes like the ones you can have here.

Pros: home-made cooking, inexpensive

Cons: few vegan desserts

Familiar for daily meals

With a dozen tables, this familiar restaurant has a home-made menu. The daily menu has very good price, 9.5 euros with 3 starters, 3 main courses, various desserts and tea. Some of them can be vegan. It is expensive to eat "a la carta": 10 -14 euros each dish.

Pros: Inexpensive menu, Home ambience, Easy to park

Cons: Expenseiv no daily menu

Very Good!

The last restaurant I tried when I was in Madrid it was the best one! the normal price for the menu at lunch is 9.50€, but I paid 8€ because of a vegetarian day, what a luck! :) you can choose one between two first plates, a second between four (if I remember correctly) and a dessert, even if when I went there was not a "real" vegan dessert (apple compote)...
The place is quite small, so is possible you have to wait if in group. I was alone so I hadn't problems.
finally, I recommend it as the first place to eat visiting in this city: it is not located in the commercial area, but with the subway you'll have no problems to reach it!

Pros: Price, Quality

Cons: Out of the centre, Small

Very relaxing

A cozy, relaxing small restaurant with friendly staff. A lunch menu del dia was 12 euro in Nov 2009 (including appetizer, main, dessert & herbal tea). The food was very mild and simple, but freshly prepared. Food could have used more flavor/imagination, but still was a nice lunch & quite enjoyable.

Tasty, cheap, great atmosphere

Tucked away down a side street in Northern Madrid (nearest Metro: Alvarado) is Restaurante Vegetariano Ceres. It may look a little tatty from the outside, but I can recommend it. I was met by the smiling owner and waitress who immediately brought a jug of tap water, a seeded brown bread roll and olive oil for dipping. I chose the amazing value Menu del Dia (menu of the day) for 9.50 Euros. There were 4 choices of starter and main course, and I think 3 desserts.
For my starter I had cauliflower in garlic - interesting but very tasty. The cauliflower was cooked almost to a mush but mixed with roasted garlic, olive oil and seaweed. Really good. Then I had croquettas of carrot and leek, with a side salad of lettuce, carrot, cucumber and red cabbage. For dessert I chose the batida de fresa - basically a strawberry smoothie. My only complaint was that it was a little too sweet - I think they may have added sugar. Then a cup of camomile tea.
For 9.50 Euros, it was great value. It's got a good atmosphere too - nice tinkly music in the background, little bits of veg art on the walls. I got there when it opened at 1.30 and by 2.30 it was almost full. It has about 10 tables, variously set for 1, 2 or 4 people. It had a good mix of clientele. I was there alone, as was an older man. A young couple at another table, then 2 local workmen, then a group of 6 young men and as I left, a group of 4 elderly ladies arrived.
One word of warning - the menu is all in Spanish and I didn't get the impression that the staff speak English. It's not exactly in a touristy area so this is hardly surprising. Good chance to practice your Spanish, and if you don't konw what anything on the menu is, take a chance and just order anything!!!
One note - as far as I can tell, it now only opens from 1.30 to 4pm Monday to Saturday. I don't think it's open on Fri or Sat evenings now. I lived right by it for a month and I certainly didn't see the shutters open on any evening.

For the money, this place is well worth seeking out.

Pros: Excellent value, Friendly staff, Tasty food

Cons: Out of the way
