Excellent for vegetarians, only one vegan option - Edit

This was a lovely restaurant with caring and attentive waitstaff. The waiter was happy to answer all of my questions about their food, how it was prepared, ingredients, etc. The atmosphere was great, warmly decorated and it was conveniently located.

There was only one vegan option, a vegetable couscous, but it was delicious! I was also told that with a bit of advance notice (maybe 24 hours) you could speak with the chef about special dietary requests. *Fair warning though, I don't think anyone there spoke English.

As for vegetarians and omnivores, there were plenty of options. I would recommend checking their website which has an online menu. I went with a group of 5 people (of which I was the only vegan) and everyone was thrilled with their meals. The bread is also highly recommended and freshly baked.

As for cost, it was about what you would expect for an evening meal €15-35 depending on drinks, salads, choice of main course. I paid about €15 for my couscous, a bottle of water and bread which was more than enough to fill me up.

Pros: Lots of vegetarian options, Easy for omnivores to be satisfied, Exceptional service

Cons: Limited vegan options, Pricey if you're not vegan

A pleasantly upscale vegetarian dining alternative - Edit

While on a temporary assignment in Madrid, El Septimo (www.elseptimo.com) was conveniently located near my workplace and was the scene of my farewell luncheon as I was the lone vegetarian in the group.

It is located in the upscale Serrano district and is easily accessible from the Ruben Dario or Nunez de Balboa metro stop. The interior is tastefully decorated. It is more expensive to dine a la carte, but you can catch a fixed price lunch special that allows you to choose an appetizer, entree, dessert and glass of wine for a very reasonable sum.

El Septimo has a pleasant vegetarian (not vegan) menu consisting of green salads, lovely vegetarian entrees such as vegetable couscous, puff pastry filled with vegetables, stuffed peppers, lasagna, and rice dishes. There are meat-based dishes for your carnivorous friends (many chicken dishes), and most offerings include cheese so they are not vegan-friendly. Desserts are fairly standard and include chocolate cake, cheesecake, crepes, mousse and sorbet.

El Septimo also features a large selection of Spanish wines (regional reds, whites, roses and champagne) and liqueurs available.

Pros: Creative cuisine, Tasteful decor, Large selection of Spanish wines

Cons: Not 100% vegetarian / vegan, Can be expensive a la carte
