3 visits 2 good 1 bad! - Edit

Went here 3 times. 2 times we were really happy with the service, the food and drinks. The food is fast food style but really tasty. The location is nice and central. BUT! The 3rd time was probably our last. The menu depicts all allergens and we picked a tofu burger. To our surprise we received a burger with goat cheese. We wanted something vegan... We did not so much ask for a vegan burger but there was no cheese in the description and no symbol for lactose/milk. The worst part is when we told the waitress this was not what we ordered (patty did not look like tofu) she tried to convince us it was depicted as the soy symbol... Trying to tell me I can't read a menu is really insulting and at that point we should have left. Because of our good experiences before we waited for our burger without cheese. I know mistakes happen... but if I would have served a burger with cheese to a vegan I would have apologized a 100 times since this is the equivalent of serving meat to a vegetarian.

Pros: Location, Atmosphere , Staff is fast

Cons: Not clear what is vegan, Only go here if you eat vegetarian. , Staff not able to handle complaints

A must go - Edit

While in Puerto Cruz my boyfriend and I went four times to El Limón! Two for a drink cake and the other two for dinner. In one of our dinners it happened they still had a Menú del Día left so we went for it other snacks not included in the menu. It was perfect! The menu is unexpensive and includs a soup, a main dish, a dessert and the juice of the day. Main dish in our case was a delicious quinoa with salad (see foto).

Smoothies are wow. And cakes (almost all of them) are vegan. They also have yummy crème caramel (vegan and veggie). And mousse au chocolat.

Stuff is very nice.

Cheap, creative and tasty - Edit

Located in the city center, cheap place especially the lunch menu. Very tasty and healthy meals. Lots of vegan and gluten free options. Staff is very friendly and nice. You can really find many options on the menu, so I'm not going to specify, but if you can go by at lunch time

Pros: Healthy, Many vegan options

good food for low prices in a not too touristic little restaurant - Edit

It is not easy to find a nice and authentic restaurant in the very touristic town of Puerto de la cruz. The El Limon is one of that kind. When we were there around 75 % of the guests were Spanish - from families to business people. The atmosphere was nice and easy, the stuff were very friendly and the food was good and definitely not expensive!

Good food, poor service - Edit

Yesterday we ate at El limon. The address on happy cow is incorrect, but we found it anyway.
The waitress was kinda rude, maybe because we are tourist? I don't know..

I can recommend El Limon based on the food and price!

Pros: Food, Price , Location

Cons: Service

staff friendly, food warmed up - Edit

Some vegan options. The roasted vegetables were rather warmed up. Taste could have been better.
Not so easy to find, even with help from Happy Cow and Here.

Pros: vegan options, nice place

Cons: not always freshly made

Big dishes and great menu - Edit

I have been there now like two times, great place with a lot of costumers in the evenings. :)

I ate burger, salad, soup (that was not the best option), smoothie and drank some beer, smoothie was greatt, burger simple and salad too. But the variety is great!

I wont recommend papas con mojos, cause these sauces are not that nice here than most of places - too oil´i and not so nice saucy :D

Service is nice, the girl is really working hard, also she works alone for like 12-15 tables, that is crazy! But she is nice and welcoming :D

PS: Say if you are vegan and need to have everything vegan, they will help you nicely :D

Thank you soo much :)

Pros: big dishes

Cons: sometimes taste is too simple, burgers are simple

disappointing - Edit

We decided to go as we were staying just around the corner.
The waitress was helpful when I mentioned that I was vegan.
We all ordered smoothies which were delicious. We also ordered nachos with guacamole and hummus, quesadillas, chips and vegan burgers.
The chips had vegan mayonnaise which was nice... But the burgers also had the same mayonnaise. And the guacamole also seemed to have the same mayonnaise... It was just a bit too much mayonnaise!!!
My son was really hungry and usually eats everything!!! However he hated the burger and couldn't eat it.... It was not good,
It was so disappointing because the restaurant is so very quaint and is situated in the heart of El Puerto.
I hope they can sort out the menu because it has so much potential to be amazing.

Pros: understanding staff, great smoothies

Cons: too much mayonnaise , need to serve ketchup with the chips and burgers

Cozy with wifi - Edit

Difficult to find out what is vegan (even if you know Spanish), but there are at least some vegan options on the menu. As is commonplace on the Canary Islands, the staff don't understand English very well. There are sockets by some tables for battery charging and the wifi works well for basic stuff. Discrete background music on low volume.

Pros: Good place for working

Cons: Could be more vegan stuff on the menu

Cosy place - Edit

Smoothies were very delicious, thou foods that we tried were average. Small choice for vegans- since many dishes include dairy or eggs. Waiters were very friendly.

All dishes were marked for gluten, soy etc.

Cons: Not many vegan options

Alright but not great - Edit

El Limon is a cosy restaurant in a quiet street of Puerto de la Cruz. We had the menu of the day, which was ok but nothing special. Portions were rather small and I was still hungry after the 3-plates menu.

Pros: Location, Friendly staff

Cons: Quality, Quantity

Ein supergemütlicher Laden... - Edit

Waren hier gleich mehrmals in unserem Urlaub um uns vegan über Wasser zu halten. Der Laden ist zwar vegetarisch, die vegane Zubereitung ist hier aber alles andere als Fremdwort. Davon müsste es mehr in Spanien geben. Daumen hoch!

Perfect for a light meal - Edit

Good atmosphere, great juices and salads. Do not be very pretentious when coming. Do not expect very elaborated dishes as well. Considering that most probably you are going to be on holidays in Tenerife, a light meal is really appreciated.

Pros: good price, fabulous juices

Nice location, very much fast food - Edit

Nice little spot, they do also have a table or two outside, but they're opposite so not that obvious to spot. Do ask what's vegan - it's not clearly labelled or obvious (the tofu burger has blue cheese sauce for instance). Their fresh juices are lovely. They also do a set menu every day (not on the menu though), of main course, small juice, salad and cake. Not all their staff speak English. Stir fry, rice snd salads were nice. And some great pressed juices.

Pros: Friendly staff , Great juices , Nice little spot

Cons: Hard to work out what's vegan , Mostly fast food

Delicious fast food - Edit

Nice place in a beautiful old building in the city centre. The staff was really nice and could tell us which dishes were vegan and which were not.
We had burgers, sandwiches and fries. The salad for starter was ok (for the price maybe a bit uninspired), the vegan pastry and cappuccino both were tasty.
They have menus in various languages, but since we speak Spanish we don't know about their language skills.

Pros: cosy interior, easy getting a table at 9.30pm

Cons: Fries not homemade

Excellent - Edit

Really nice place to eat. Staff were very friendly and capable. They spoke good English and were happy and able to point out what was vegan and what was not. Fairly easy to find too.

Excellent and Reasonably priced - Edit

We stayed in Puerto de la Cruz for two weeks and ate here twice for lunch. The food was excellent and the service quick and friendly. It was great to find somewhere offering something different from all the other restaurants a lot of which offered exactly the same vegetarian options - pizza, pasta and a couple of tapas dishes.

El Limon offered a range of simple, tasty vegetarian and vegan food. Their homemade burgers were really tasty, as was their seitan dish and their tofu. They also do fresh juice combinations and none of it was "worthy". Highly recommended.

Good for veg* but no organic food - Edit

Good mix of fast food style but all vegetarian in a nice atmosphere located in a very nice building in the center of the city. They do not however serve any organic food. "This is a vegetarian/vegan restaurant" was the answer we received from the very polite staff when we asked if their food is organic. This was not enough for us. But if their food had been organic we would probably have loved it. They have been around for 20 years but should evolve and go the organic way.

Pros: vegan alternatives

Cons: not organic

Not bad but not great either - Edit

Nice rustic cafe, and the service was pleasant enough. The fresh juice was very nice, although everything else we had was pretty average. The Quorn dishes were not available the day we visited, so we both had the vegetable kebab, which came accompanied by salad and a veggie sausage. The kebab and salad were ok but unremarkable, although the sausage was quite nice. We each finished with a piece of carrot cake, which was satisfactory, and to be fair, the portions were quite generous and reasonably priced. Overall verdict - Wouldn't rush to go back, but it's not one to be avoided either.

Pros: Location, Reasonably priced

Cons: Average food
