Not my style - Edit

I went to El Cafe Blueproject last Sunday and although I stand by everything it stands for (art and veganism!), I must admit that it's not my stile.

Food is good but they are more concerned with the presentation than with the taste or the portion size. Prices are average for Barcelona, but probably high with respect to what you can actually eat...

However, if you like "classy" places, do go there, it's just that I prefer "rougher" places (for example, the Cat bar!).

So my final judgment is... fair!

Pros: Lots of raw options

Cons: Small portions, Probably a bit pricey

bad service - Edit

I was very disappointed with the less than polite service.
I asked for the menu, in fluent Spanish, and was given an English menu after the servers exchanged disapproving looks. I then ordered my meal and asked questions once again in fluent Spanish. The server only replied to me in English. The whole experience felt very disrespectful.
I would not recommend this place.

Hip vegan cafe close to Ciutadella Park - Edit

I love the cafe blue project for those days when you want to sit down work, read and enjoy a lovely hot drink with a yummy vegan cake.

I've tried their cereal cappuccino with a raw carrot cake which was scrumptious. Also had a chia seed and fruit breakfast dish which was divine.

Their home made, gluten free, dried crackers with pumpkin, sunflower seed and sultanas was incredible with baba ghanoush.

Pros: All vegan and many raw options

Cons: Closes early and more expensive than average place

LOVE this place - Edit

I love this place, quoting another reviewer it's a taste explosion! Lots of healthy yet hearty raw food - amazing, tasteful hummus made from sunflower seeds with the best raw crackers I've tasted. Gourmet. You can get cooked food here as well and the cappuccino is served with strings of chocolate sauce on top, yumm. The food is beautifully presented and the place is laid-back and cozy. All vegan, wowi.

Pros: Taste explosion amazing gourmet food, Healthy yet hearty and beautiful presentation, Love the coffee with chocolate sauce

lousy service - Edit

Didn't welcome us, we had to ask for a menu, we didn't get what we ordered and they didn't have patience to explain the morning deal.
In the end we had to pay more because they mislead us.

we didn't enjoy at all. 13 eur for a cake, mini sandwich and a tiny coffee. And all with a bad atmosphere.

Delicious hummus - Edit

This raw vegan cafe has superb snack food and breakfast (warning: served after 11 am). They use very fresh ingredients and they go the extra mile to prepare very flavorful dishes such as sprouted garbanzo beans hummus. They offer very nice lunch deals.

Good but not great - Edit

I tried the raw combination here, which was reasonably priced and interesting. It wasn't the best raw food I've ever had, and it probably wouldn't have impressed someone unused to raw-food - a fairly basic salad, a dip with some nice crackers, and a slightly too chewy raw burger. They also have non-raw options, which I would probably try if I came here again.

Pros: Friendly staff, Good range of food, Free wifi

Taste explosion - Edit

We had no raw food experience at all when we came here and ended up eating here twice in our week in Barcelona. The food ist absolutely over the tops! The staff was very well informed and keen on helping us to decide. I wanted to try a wheatgrass shoot, but they said that when you're not used to it, wheatgrass can have a very heavy effect on your body and I should better not try it. Everything we ordered was simply amazing, I could hardly keep myself from moaning loudly! We took some recipe ideas home with us and tried them on the family. It was not as good as at Cafe Blueproject of course, but it definitely showed us how great and satisfying raw food can be. Don't miss this when your in Barcelona!

Pros: The food is oh-my-god, very helpful staff

Proyecto Azul is Born - Edit

My alternative title for this review was 'The Born Identity' just because I like to play with words. Anyway, I need to focus. El Cafe Blue Project is a sensational place in the beautiful Born are of Barca. It drips quality and class, but definitely not pretentiousness. The menu is practically vegan. We had the cashew nut cheese pizza and a tofu and avocado sandwich. Both were excellent, but the pizza was simply magical. That cashew nut cheese is something else. two glasses of white wine and a sparkling water brought the bill to a fair €21.50. The seating is informal with good space between tables. An open kitchen at the rear looks absolutely immaculate. The whole place is immaculate. I will be back.

Pros: huge vegan choice, cashew nut cheese, friendly staff

Excellent vegan food. - Edit

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of eating at El Cafe Blueproject in Barcelona, and what a treat it turned out to be!
We had already been in the city a week and were tiring of bland vegan burgers and hastily thrown together plates of salad. Imagine our delight to find a cafe which truly produced vegan fare to be proud of. There was a variety of dishes on the menu including very imaginative raw creations. My husband ordered a plate which provided a portion of every main course dish on the menu, and I ordered a salad, which turned out to be a masterpiece of culinary delight. All the dishes were exquisite and lovingly prepared by the chefs, Carlos and Christian.
After the main course, wonderful chocolates could be had, beautiful to look at and wonderful to taste. My husband had " The unforgettable cake of the day", a vegan cheesecake which truly lived up to its name.
We were extremely impressed with the thought that had gone into the preparation of everything and the atmosphere of the place which was comfortable and chic with the tables nicely spaced. A welcoming and warm environment in which to relax and eat at a leisurely pace.
The service was excellent and we were able to talk with the chefs afterwards which was a pleasure.
The prices were reasonable and we felt that we had had a fine dining experience which gave good value for money.
We would return there in a heartbeat and have no hesitation in recommending it, especially to vegans, who often find it difficult to eat quality food whilst on vacation.

Pros: Excellent food, Efficient service, Comfortable and stylish environment

Beautiful plant-filled atmosphere - Edit

The coffee is delicious and the staff is friendly enough to let you use the big tables and convenient wifi and plugs for work projects. The snacks and treats are lovingly concocted and delicious as well. Unfortunately, small portion sizes and high prices mean that coffee is generally all I can ever get here - but I will nab a snack whenever I can!

The most amazing thing about this Cafe (besides the coffee), though, is the many beautiful and well-cared-for plants hanging from the ceiling, in corners, on the tables... along with the big windows in front, they give the space a really nice energy. It's a pleasure to spend time there.

Pros: beautiful plants, delicious coffee, nice place to get work done

Cons: portion size, price

Lovely nourishing & delicious food :) - Edit

We went here for lunch on a Sunday (when many other veg places were closed in Barcelona). The lady who welcomed us and served us was really lovely and friendly with perfect English.

It is a lovely restaurant with great decor and ambience :)

The menu was a bit limited with many things unavailable (not sure if they had run out or if it was because it was Sunday or lunch time?) but we chose the 3 course special including entree, main and dessert. My boyfriend and I thought everything was delicious except my starter of the raw soup - it was a raw ginger & pumpkin soup but tasted really bland - I couldn't taste any ginger or any flavour at all. Other than the soup everything was delicious! The olive dip and raw crackers were delightful! The raw chocolate beetroot dessert was delicious and my boyfriend had the cashew yoghurt dessert - super yummy too! For some reason I can't remember what we ordered for mains - but I remember them being good!!

I was most excited about them having fresh cold press juices on the menu. They made a fresh green juice for me the way I would make it at home - lots of vegetables and leafy greens and just a tiny bit of apple - which was great compared to most places that make a 'green juice' and it has nearly no greens and mostly fruit. So this was wonderful. They also make fresh wheatgrass shots which I ordered one of - delicious and made me feel amazing! So good to get healthy nourishing food and drink while travelling - made me feel great! :)

I would highly recommend this restaurant and would definitely go back! :)

Pros: Fresh cold press juice & wheatgrass shot, Desserts & mains, Lovely staff, good decor & ambience

Great Location! - Edit

The place had a very nice interior but we sat at the small table on the street to watch the world go by. It is located centrally, right beside the beautiful public park.
We only stayed for drinks but the service was good and the menu looked interesting.

Pros: Location, Service

Cons: Price

Authentic Raw Food - Edit

I have chosen this place for my birthday lunch last weekend and did not regret it. My first impression was that this place is really authentic and cares about good food.

We ordered three courses - mostly raw: salad with homemade onion crackers, pizza, spaghetti, cake. We loved them all, except for the spaghetti. they were a bit too bland for my taste but after we asked for some spice they tasted great as well. My husband ordered a (cooked) risotto, which tasted great, too.

We were also really surprised that the delicious cakes did not taste too sweet. As we quit sugar some years ago and are not used to oversweetened food anymore it is hard to find desserts in restaurants we like. Even the raw ones are very often way too sweet. These ones here tasted just like the ones I make myself.

At the bar you can have have a gluten free cookie and also a raw vegan brownie.

Staff is very friendly and although the café was packed when we arrived they did not show they were stressed.

I can recommend this place to anyone who loves vegan food, especially for the raw vegans this place is a must.

Perfect lunch! - Edit

I went for the weekend to visit friends and family and decided to give a try to this place as they opened just after I moved. WOW. My sister and cousin are not vegetarian and enjoyed every dish to the point we had a laugh therapy seasion all over as they got overjoyed. I am sure the quality and love on the food got into the atmosphere of our conversation and it showed. Willbe going everytime I go back to Barcelona and try the take away! Price is very good and portions more than enough, being live food it really nourish and fuels you for the day without overeating.

Great job guys, sorry for the neverending laughs :) but it was just the effect of our beautiful food

Pros: Great food, very nourishing, Atmosphere and staff, Location
