Delicious food and great value!

I had the vegan mixed plate and everything was delicious, but special praise goes out to the carrot and curry croquettes which were especially lovely. The garnish was sweet potatoes, quinoa with veggies, and a red cabbage and carrot salad - all really tasty, too. The location is super central, very close to the Alcazaba, so I was expecting it to be more expensive, but the prices are very reasonable and the food is great value for money.

Pros: Tasty food, Great value, Location

The “mixed vegan” special is wonderful

Also is located just around the corner from the Roman Theater and Alcazaba.

Opciones veganas caras en el centro de Málaga

El restaurante es lindo y su terraza es agradable. En la carta, que es mayormente vegetariana, hay algunas opciones veganas, ojalá hubiera más. La comida estaba rica, especialmente el mix vegano. En general, por calidad-precio, la sensación es de sitio para turistas, ya que resultaba algo caro.

Pros: El ambiente

Cons: Precio alto, Pocas opciones veganas

Cute place

Cute little restaurant with a few vegan options. Went for the vegan mixed plate and some vegan paella. Super cheap and tasted good. Perfect for before/after exploring the city centre.

Good lunch

Went for lunch and shared Paella and vegan mixed plate. Liked being able to sample a lot of different things on the mixed plate. Outside of that and appetizers though, there’s not a whole lot of vegan choices on the menu. The addition of beer and sangria made for a nice lunch outdoors and we appreciated the fast and friendly service.

Pros: All vegetarian , Smoke-free outdoor seating

Cons: A bit pricey for big plates

Mixed vegan plate

Nice to have a couple of vegan options. Most of the items were very similar in taste and texture. That said, it was a filling and healthy lunch.

Great dinner experience

This restaurant is located in an alley with view at the castle. We got a table outside and the owners were really nice. They offer a few vegan options which were all delicious and had a good portion size. I really enjoyed the beer as well. I highly recommend this place.

Lovely place for food

My partner ordered gazpacho and hummus and both were gorgeous and delicious.

I had a goats cheese Tyrol salad and loved it. The service was quick and very friendly and smiley. Would definitely come back.

It's a bit pricey but compared to other places relatively similar prices if not on the lower end at the city centre.

Pros: Plenty vegan options, Quick service, Right in the centre

Cons: Bit pricey, but nothing too high

It’s hard to find a place with only vegetarian options. I’m glad we went here. The owner is super nice and friendly.
The food is good, but the portions are way to big. We could have shared one meal and still have left overs.

Pros: Delicious , All vegetarian and a lot of vegan options, Friendly

Cons: Big portions

Spanish vegan home cooking

Shared the gazpacho, mushrooms, paella and vegan tasting plate—all very good with generous portions. But the star of the show is the lovely owners and servers who make this place feel like you’re visiting someone’s home.

Pros: Service, Food ready to share with everyone at the table, Location

Lovely place

Lovely vegetarian place with vegan options. Staff is very friendly and the overall look of the place makes it even more nice to be there. The food is not the best I've ever had but definitely enjoyable and it was worth it coming here.

Super vegetarisches Restaurant, mit tollen veganen Optionen

Hübsches Restaurant mit einer tollen Location. Das Ambiente hat was eigenes und lockt einen förmlich an. Das Essen ist vielfältig sowohl für Vegetarier als auch Veganer. Es überzeugt durch eine Vielfalt von Aromen und Gewürzen. Eine Empfehlung ist die vegane Paella als Vorspeise.

Pros: Vegane Optionen, Hübsches Ambiente , Geschmacklich außergewöhnlich

Nice vegetarian restaurant

Good vegan options. The paella was ok but nothing exceptional, I also found it too salty but that's my personal taste. The gazpacho was very refreshing. We shared the mixed vegan plate and it was delicious. We also shared a slice of cheesecake which was tasty.
