A Raw Vegan Culinary Gem"

I had an incredible dining experience at Gioia Plant in Marbella, Spain. For starters, we indulged in the raw zucchini avocado tartar with baba ganoush, a delightful and refreshing combination of flavors. The Raw Ravioli and Raw Zucchini Lasagna were next, and they both exceeded our expectations with their vibrant taste and innovative preparation.

To end the meal on a sweet note, we savored the raw lemon in coconut cheesecake, which was an absolute delight. The overall experience was wonderful, with each dish showcasing the creativity and dedication of the chefs in crafting delicious raw vegan cuisine. Gioia Plant is a must-visit for those seeking a unique and memorable dining experience in Marbella.

Hit or miss

The service is great and the host is charming. The starters are really tasty and absolutely delightful. You should try the avocado tartar or the portobello carpaccio! The carbonara is interesting, at least. I have never eaten a meal before that had absolutely no taste in itself and lacked any distinct flavor. Therefore, I cannot say that I didn’t like it but also, I can’t recommend it either.

Some of the best vegan food I’ve had in Spain. The host was absolutely lovely and welcoming to our family.
The food was excellent. Every dish we ordered was 10/10.
My children had gnocchi pesto and spaghetti aglio oleo pepperoncino, my husband and I had the protabello mushroom and jackfruit special and we shared babaganoush, ensalada Gioia, and tiramisu. All spectacular

Pros: Everything is vegan, Lovely welcoming service , Reasonably priced

Cons: The outside tables are close to the road

Best RAW Vegan food that I've ever ate...

I can't describe... It's everything designed with so much love and passion. Such creative ideas. The combination of tastes... I need to say the chef is such a raw artist that I would give all my money to learn half of his knowledge. My life changed today. And if you want to change yours.. Just go there and you'll have multiple raworgasms with so much food [censored]..

Pros: Sorry, but everything!

Cons: Sorry, but really nothing to point!

Absolument délicieux !

Un restaurant vegan avec une cuisine élaborée (beaucoup de cru et aussi du sans gluten). Les saveurs sont rares et d’une finesse peu habituelle. Accueil chaleureux : le chef a pris le temps de m’expliquer tous les plats car je n’arrivais pas à me décider. Vraiment à tester si vous êtes à Marbella !

Pros: Saveurs inhabituelles, plats très fins, Accueil chaleureux , Choix d’entrées, plats et desserts

Amazing Vegan Food

Entirely vegan menu with lots of gluten free and raw food options. I’m not a fan of raw food so I had the black rice - IT WAS INCREDIBLE!!! I can’t remember the last time I had something so good at a restaurant! 5 ⭐️

Best place in town

Very nice place, a bit away from the city center, with outdoor and indoor areas, very kind staff (they brought an additional table outside to let me have lunch there because all the seats were occupied), and the food was simply delicious. Only con is the price, a little bit too expensive (daily special 16€, cheesecake 9€).

Pros: Delicious food, Nice place, Kind staff

Cons: Not cheap

This place is right near to where I am staying so I called in for lunch. I had 4 courses of all raw plant based food. To start was mock sushi with walnut, pickled ginger and tamari. Next was ravioli, the pasta sheets are made with fresh coconut pulp & carrot, dehydrated for 8 hours, filled with Brazil nut & cashew ricotta, topped with black garlic sauce. Third course was cannelloni with tomato & ginger marinara, Brazil nut & cashew ricotta, and pesto, served with truffle oil. Last but not least was a raw lemon in coconut cheesecake with berry coulis.

The food was absolutely excellent. Highly recommended if you are ever in the area and like high quality plant based food.

Pros: All vegan, Plenty of raw dishes, healthy

So special!

Some seriously incredible food, we tried the raw ravioli, raw lasagna, and the carbonara - all three very special and delicious dishes. It's a shame we were only able to come here once as we'd love to have tried their desserts and their other dishes. It's not the cheapest place but it's very good value for food that is clearly excellent quality. On top of the wonderful food came the host and waiter, both of whom were lovely and helpful! Couldn't recommend this place enough.

Pros: Delicious food, Awesome vibe, Very good value for money
