First Review by Blueberries

Simple food done well and reasonably priced - Edit

Not the most obvious place from outside (we walked past it), but worth finding out for lunch or a light meal when in Madrid.

For the very reasonable price of €11 you get three courses, bread and a drink. The host was very welcoming and had reasonable English. There was a limited choice (the menu changed daily) and nothing to indicate what was vegan when we visited, but it was happily pointed out what was suitable or could be made suitable when I asked. I had a simple Miso tofu soup followed by a delicious filo pastry filled with curried vegetables (rather like a big samsosa). My partner who is veggie had a fresh green salad with tomatoes then spaghetti with sun-dried tomatoes and veggie parmesan. Choice of drink included soft drinks, beer or wine.

Sadly the desserts weren't vegan on our visit and I had to make do with some fresh fruit. This would have been good if it had been a mix but I was given the choice of one from two or three different fruits and ended up with some banana chopped up in a bowl...

Overall a relaxed and enjoyable meal in a non touristy taverna and very good value.

Pros: Great value, Nice, simple food, Quiet location

Cons: Limited choice, No vegan dessert

Central location, reasonable choice for vegans - Edit

Stumbled upon this gem while wondering in Madrid's centre. Had to wait for 15-20min for a table to free up. Very cordial stuff, several vegan choices on the menu (clearly marked), just one vegan dessert though. Great overall experience, five stars!

Pros: Location, Stuff, Food

Cons: One one vegan dessert

Good food, good ambience - Edit

Elegant ambience, old school jazz, well-prepared food and warm service make for a very pleasant meal.

Despite the small menu, there are several vegan options for meals (clearly marked). There's only one vegan dessert (strudel with tofu cream), but fortunately it's done very well.

Pros: Elegant, vegan-friendly

Cons: only one vegan dessert

good all round - Edit

Food clean, tasty, & nicely presented by gentle helpful staff. Situated in a handsome area there are tables outside. It's not cheap, neither is it particularly expensive. I definitely recommend it.

Pros: healthy , helpful, handsome

Cons: no cons really , i guess, not cheap, nothing else

Super place - Edit

Found this by accident whilst exploring the lanes around the Opera House and went back later to eat.
Its small, about 20 covers I'd guess, nicely decorated and presented in a rusticly finished room which give a nice ambience.
We found the staff helpful - the chef came to explain the recipes - and the food was absolutely delicious. The menu is short, which I like in a small restaurant as it indicates the food is freshly prepared, na d the choice is interesting.
Good choice of wines and beers, and herb teas as well as good coffee.
Overall highly recommended. Not cheap, but excellent value.

Pros: Good for vegans, Interesting menu

Cons: Small - might need to book

Rude staff, great food - Edit

As a mixed group of a vegan, vegetarian and omnivore, we were looking for something that would cater to all of our tastes. The restaurant is completely vegetarian with a rather small menu of only about six starters and six mains, about half of which were vegan. There was a huge selection of teas, wines and beers. The staff were extremely rude, as well as which we had to wait to be served when the restaurant was practically empty, but the food arrived quickly. We ordered the guacamole, pita bread with tomato hummus, and gyoza stuffed with tofu with a citrus, sesame and soy sauce, with decent portion sizes. The food was absolutely lovely and nicely-presented. The restaurant filed out later in the evening without being completely full or overly-packed. The deserts were absolutely amazing. We ordered the chocolate tart and apple strudel with soya cream (the only vegan desert despite there being sesame ice cream on the menu). Prices were middling and quite reasonable for the great quality of the food.

Pros: Lovely food, Good location, Vegan-friendly

Cons: Very rude staff, Small menu selection, Only one vegan desert
