I'm in love - Edit

I love El Oju! A vegan, feminist, co-op run tapas bar! My only problem was that I wasn't sure I was cool enough to be there - but the lovely friendly staff and relaxed clientele made us really welcome :) We were glad to have got there early enough (just after opening) to get a seat at the bar as it was soon packed out, including a large birthday party (for which they'd made a delicious-looking cake and the whole place sang happy birthday in Spanish). The staff didn't speak much English but were lovely about our attempts at Spanish and between us we got along just fine. Free tapas with a drink feels like stealing to an English person used to paying a quid for a packet of crisps in a pub! We tried the tortilla, chickpea stew, seitan bocadillo, and tacos. Was really nice to have some Spanish food as vegan places tended to be international otherwise. Also, as El Oju is just out of the tourist centre of Granada we were the only non-Spanish there, which was great, felt like a touch of real contemporary Spain. I'd go back there tonight if I could! Can't recommend highly enough.

Pros: Delicous, Spanish food, Great atmosphere and music, Lovely staff

Centric vegan feminist bar - Edit

El Oju is a wonderful vegan bar which offers big portions and some really nice tapas.

As it is traditional in Granada they offer a tapa with every purchased drink. Tapas range from veg chorizo or meatballs to spanish omelette and they are all quite tasty.

They also offer a menu from where you can order some wonderful dishes as the Oju Taco or the vegan burgers (I especially recommend the mushrooms one).

Its central location and friendly staff make it even more visiting if you find yourself visiting Granada.

wonderful and cheap - Edit

I found this place extremely cheap for the amount and quality of food they serve here. Given the large variety of tapas, it seems normal that a few of the tapas were not that special, but most of the ones I've tried were very good, and some were really amazing. Highly recommended, although not to have a cosy, quiet, or romantic dinner (as it can be quite noisy and busy), but rather to have fast yet high quality and tasty vegan food.

Scrumptious - Edit

We wanted to enjoy beer with tapas without the risk of getting meat or dairy. Oju was great! We had two lucky dips and then selected albondigas. Everything tasted great- The lass serving was friendly and patient with my rubbish Spanish too. Highly recommended.

Pros: Great food, Informal atmosphere, Nice staff

Cons: Can't think of any cons

I really recommend it - Edit

It's the only vegan tapas Bar in Granada and I really like it. Good wine and local beer. They also offer economic dishes. The only negative point is that the service is quite slow when the bar is full, but highly recommended!



Pros: Vegan Tapas, Good wine

Cons: Economic, Delicious

Enjoyed the food - Edit

This place has lots of tapas to choose from. Yummy, but obviously pre-prepared and microwaved. Staff were flat-out the night we went so service took a while and I felt guilty every time I ordered something and added to their work load! Still, I enjoyed my dinner and drinks.

Wine good food disappointing - Edit

I was really looking forward to vegan tapas but I felt that I have made better tapas myself. The tapas was served just warm and whilst the cous cous and vegetables was nice the other dishes weren't very tasty. However, the vegan wine was one of the best red wines I have tasted for some time. The opening time states 8pm but on the Friday we were told it opened at 9pm. Staff friendly.

Pros: friendly atmosphere, great wine

Cons: food disappointing, opening times can change

Pros: friendly staff, good food

A bit disappointing - Edit

We had high hopes of this place but left a bit disappointed. There was a lot of choice on the menu, but the tapas we tried (lentil burger, seitan montadito, tofu wrap and tex mex taco) were not especially tasty or well presented. Chips came doused in luminous ketchup. It's no doubt great to have options around for vegans and vegetarians, but in terms of the food itself we had much better meals at Papaupa and Hicuri. The bar was noisy, but felt more rowdy than atmospheric.

Pros: Range of vegan options, Very cheap

Cons: Unhealthy, Small portions

Outstanding vegan place in Granada - Edit

This is a really cozy bar in Granada. The food is outstanding and the staff is really nice. They offer a great variety of tapas and you can also eat delicious dishes. There are also incredible cakes there. If what you are looking for is really good vegan food (fresh salads, burguers, full-of-flavour soya tacos, chocolate cakes, and many other surprises) , friendly people and cheap prices, that is the place. In Granada visiting the Alhambra and eating at El Ojú are a pleasure which everybody should enjoy. I've never been at night, but I had an excellent mojito, so I guess it will be a perfect place to enjoy the famous Spanish nightlife In Granada. I'll often go there for sure. Non-vegans enjoy as much as I do (one of my non-vegan sister favourite place).

Pros: great variety, nice staff, delicious food
