Great Find Thanks to Happy Cow - Edit

Not sure what was on the menu as we arrived just as they opened at 12:30 and the waitress hadn't written the menu out. We could have worked Spanish out in written form but are no good orally. Consequently, we just said uno vegeteriano y uno vegano and the waitress brought 4 courses of each off the menu dias which we enjoyed. Salad, soup/bread, vegan main of fried potato/garlic, seitan and oyster mushrooms and vegetarian dish of quinoa stacks with a delicious sauce. Baked apple for vegan dessert and a creamy tart for vegetarian. 24 euros including a freshly made vegetable juice and large water.
To find it go up the steps off Calle Loma del Riscos. Well worth it

Convenient and tasty - Edit

This restaurant is located in a pedestrian street which will be easier to find if you get to it from calle Loma de los Riscos rather than Avenida Joan Miró. They have a really good and inexpensive 4-course menu on working days and Saturdays, less than 10,00€, however drinks are not included. Luckily enough for me, one choice (and only one) out of every course was vegan. The dishes were excellent anyway, really tasty and nicely served, plus it's just a few minutes in walking distance of central Torremolinos.

Update: I've been a couple of times more since I posted my review and in these two occasions there were much more vegan options in the menu.

Pros: excellent food, location, inexpensive

Cons: just one vegan choice per course, only opens for lunch

Oasis! - Edit

A wonderful place! Delicious, satisfying 4 course meals for less than 10 euros; 3 course less than 8 - a great deal for the quantity and quality. I've been going here on my occasional trips to the area for over 15 years, and this time the quality is even better than ever.

They are near-vegan, and definitely vegan friendly. You should always double check, but they told me that they use no eggs and no cheese. They do use milk.

Practical but expensive for what it is - Edit

The place is nice (even if not easy to find - the restaurant is in a pedestrian street between Avenida Joan Miro and Calle Loma de los Riscos). The terrace is very pleasant. The dishes are very well presented and vegetables are well cooked. However, the portions are small for the price paid. I tried the grilled seitan which was not very tasty (avoid it). Finally, it lacks some vegan choices to be really satisfying.

Pros: friendly staff, tasty vegetables

Cons: small portions, few vegan options (not well indicated), only Spanish menu

Espiga - go and be open minded - Edit

Spain is behind the UK with regards to veggie fine dining as you can find here. veggie places tend to be whole food,wiegh your own places similar to that found here 10+years ago ( im not knocking that but dont expect the same refignment of food) Espigna can be a little tricky to find but we got it first attempt. its not set on the street but at a rightangle but well signposted on the street. its next to a hairdressers if that helps. Cafe style, cool and fresh interior - fen shui due to waterfountain and crystals hanging in dead spaces. went as a couple, ordered menu of the day ( 9.50 4courses or 6.50 3 courses) at least three options for each course. I had house salad - large bowl mixed salad including carrots and red cabbage, simple but lovely. rocqufort croquettes ( 5 ) then ordered natural yog. order got mixed up and I got something similar - a formented live milk that is much sharper than natural yog but I thought it was just their variation. was a good experience because i had never had it-learned something new. freshly made fruit/veg juices to your own mix. would recommend would go back should we be there again. waitress very polite and explained my 'new desert' well enough for me to google it later. drinks a bit expensive. art work nice - local artists groups i think so changes regulary.

Pros: menu dia, healthy, light

Cons: hidden a little, cafe style, drinks prices

hard to find, nice place, but oily 3 courses - Edit

We literally drove around for 30 mins and finally noticed it at the end of a side mall area. Basically when you get to the address look towards the water, south I'm guessing and there is a line of shops not facing the street, but kind of 90 degrees making them hard to spot. We split the menu of the day, because that's all you can order. We tried our best to get it sin aciete, but no luck. We only ate lettuce :( Its a nice place, though.

Cons: hard to find, oily

Update April 08 - Edit

The restaurant has been totally refurbished and is great. The food continues to be unbelievable. I go with a friend and we always order 1 of each item for the first 3 courses if we can then share. Sometimes there are 3 choices and this is a real dilema! One time we were there and noticed someone had come in for a 'take away'. We asked Christina, the waitress about it and she said it was certainly possible. The restaurant is not close but we tried it. We phoned for the menu del dia and ordered. All was ready to collect and it had been packed with the same attention to presentation as if we were dining at the restaurant. It tasted.... well I hope you find out just how good......... It is another option to try. We have even thought of splitting the courses between lunch and dinner one time soon. It opens now on Friday evenings and Saturday too. Around 8 I think.

Pros: always a new idea, taste/presentation, the chef's a genious!

Cons: Sadly it's 1600km from my home!
