Small cosy vegetarian restaurant with a lot of vegan choices!

Hard to choose what to eat.

We support veggie/vegan restaurants like this.

We ordered vegan mezze and vegan burritto. Both very taste full.

Desserts: raw vegan chocolate/caramel and vegan tiramisu. Good too.

No coffee machine, cause there's no place in the small venue.

Kind waitress!

No dogs allowed

Unfortunately, you are not allowed in there with a dog, even if it only weighs 2 kg and is in a bag. A pity…

Great food in the heart of the old town

Was very cosy, and the food was just delicious. The onion bhajis starter and caramel slice dessert in particular were so so nice. Will definitely be going back when next in tarifa 🤩

Cute place with yummy food

They had a great variety of dishes. My wife and I enjoyed some fresh and varied food. Perfect place for a quick meal if you’re taking the ferry to Tangiers Morocco.

Tasty quick lunch

As the description states, the dishes are reheated.

Nonetheless, I really enjoyed my lunch.
My lasagna was accompanied with a nice salad and a very tasty dressing.

I was 'good to go' in ±30 minutes,now that's what I call a quick lunch 🤗

Pros: Quick service , Salad with tasty dressing, Portion

Cons: Not fresh, Dish wasn't that hot


30 Apr 2023

We're so glad you enjoyed your meal. Unfortunately it's just not possible to prepare you a fresh lasagne from scratch, as you'll appreciate that could take up to three hours! All of our food is prepared fresh each day before we open and kept cool according to industry standards, ready to serve upon order. Hope to see you back again soon!

Amazing vegan food

This place was excellent. The seitan platter and vegan sampler were both very good, as was the red wine. They also have a good selection of vegan deserts. The restaurant itself is fairly small and seemed to get busy quickly…so get there early 😊

In case of hunger and no other options

Small place, mainly for a quick meal. Mainly Spanish and similar dishes. Relatively uninteresting flavors, devoid of anything special. However, you can eat and not complain too much.

Hey! We appreciate your review, and if it weren't for the great pictures you posted, we would have been thinking you'd eaten somewhere else. We don't actually serve a single Spanish dish on our menu, perhaps a couple of Mexican inspired dishes, but mostly Indian, Afghan, Indonesian, Mediterranean and Asian influenced dishes which (we think) are seasoned and spiced to perfection.

We'd love you to come back and try again some time if you're passing by and aren't in such a hurry. Perhaps you can take your time over one of our mixed platters which offer a variety of dishes to satisfy any pallette, and finish off with one of our delicious Vegan and Gluten free deserts.

Loved it!

Great place with very tasty veggie and vegan meals. The wraps (tried the smoked tofu and the halloumi ones) are gorgeous. The lentil pâté and the kuku are perfect with an apéro drink. Talking about drinks, they stock local craft beers and vegan wines which are worth more than a try.

Pros: Great menu, Great staff, Great drinks

Cody dinner place

We had a lot of food, so I’ll start there:

-Shakshuka vegan version - comes with smoked tofu on top instead of halloumi as with the veggie version
-Red lentil pâté with carrot sticks and nachos
-‘Gado gado’ - veg, smoked tofu, rice and satay sauce
-Choco mousse - said ‘with salted caramel and a hint of orange’ but was actually just pretty coconutty with desiccated coconut on top and a coconut bit at the bottom!
-Caramel slice

The only thing that was really delicious was the gado gado. Everything else was fine but that stood out.

PSA: Also please be careful here as a vegan because we were brought the version of the shakshuka with halloumi on it at first and had to get the waitress’s attention to check as it didn’t say on the menu what the vegan version entailed- it should be tofu on top!! She was very apologetic and replaced it without issue but be aware!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Tasty gado gado, Friendly staff

Cons: Should be vegan- had cheese mix up!


27 Oct 2022

Also re the description of this place: “Food is prepared ahead of time and placed in a counter for re-heated upon order” - that put me off a lot at first, it sounds a bit like everything will be old and cold. It’s much more fresh than that implied!!


27 Oct 2022

Also this review should be titled ‘COSY dinner place’ 🤦🏼 anyway. They also apparently don’t have tap water?? So we had to buy drinks which doesn’t seem right.

Yummy nice little place

To me it’s more of a snack place which hasn’t too many options to select from. I decided to try the burrito and liked the flavors very much! When you’re not too hungry and don’t want to sit for too long - it’s definitely a place to go to! You might need to wait a little to get a table.

13 stars are not enough!

Ci vorrebbero almeno 4 cene per tutte le opzioni vegane!
Il ristorante è vegano con ben poche opzioni vegetariane.
Piatti curati, abbondanti, ingredienti di qualità, cucinati benissimo,
Molte scelte tradizionali e qualche opzione fusion asiatica,
Unico neo i prezzi bassi! Soprattutto in rapporto alla qualità e quantità!

Pros: No meat, 90% pure vegan, Personale gentile e accogliente, Prezzi bassissimi
