Great stop in San Sebastián! - Edit

This is the only vegan place in San Sebastián/ Donostia, the other one was closed. I was really impressed! It's a small and cute little place, the owner is very nice and helpful. They serve organic beer along with great food. As for the food itself I really enjoyed it; I had an awesome salad, lots of components and healthy fats and the hummus with bread-the hummus was fantastic as was the bread they serve with it, so good and very fresh tasting. I do believe this place does a lot of to go orders however there is plenty of seating inside. If I go back to this area I will definitely eat here again, also the portion sizes are huge!

Pros: tasty, fresh food, big portions, serves organic beer

A must go - Edit

Absolutely loved this place. We usually try different restaurants during our stay but here we returned again. They surely know how to cook! We were very pleased by the taste of the burrito, burger and (raw) salads as these could be from a gourmet chef. Portions are quite generous and the owner is friendler than most Spanish waiters we've experienced so far. A must-go when in San Sebastian!

Pros: Delicious, Big portions, Friendly atmosphere

Cons: Small place

Cheap - Edit

It has very affordable menu for 13€ (burger or wrap with salad and drink) but it is like "you get what you pay for". The place is very old and it is like fast food atmosphere, also the meals are not very healthy (please serve less sauces and more veggies), however it is a great option in a center of San Sebastian.

Pros: cheap

Cons: atmosphere, not so healthy

Good food to go - Edit

It's pretty much a fast with healthier and vegan options. My husband and I both had a wrap (I had the gluten free version) and they were very tasty.

Pros: Several food and drink options, Gluten free options, Friendly staff

Cons: Expensive, Fast-food like atmosphere, Very few seats

Wonderful place and food!!! - Edit

We were here two weeks ago and we found a really nice surprise! Amazing food, everything was vegan and dishes are very big! It was enough for me to order the Burrito. Cheap, comfortable and the owner is so nice. We had a good talk :)

Great Location - Edit

This place has all the type of food that I love and the location is really good because it´s in the Parte Vieja. However you should eat upstairs or actually use it as a take-away because eating in their basement is not the nicest experience. Besides, the portions are reeeeally big and I wonder how I would have eaten my burger as a take away (way too big to fit in one bite haha). But overall, a good place to check out!

Pros: Location, Assortment, Big size

Cons: Eating in the not so nice basement

so-so - Edit

I was happy to have found this place but I didn't love the burger at all and wasn't even quite sure what it was made out of. I also didn't particularly enjoy the hummus. The portions were WAY too huge for me, so I left probably more than half of what they gave me on the plate and was stuffed. It did feel filling and nutritious. It would also be nicer if they had more choices (there are 4
Main choices I think?) but I guess I can't be picky while eating one of the few 100% veg options in Basque Country! The basement seating was pretty dingy- probably better to take food out and eat it at the beach or in one of the plazas if there isn't room upstairs.

Perfect restaurant!! - Edit

This restaurant is amazing!!! The food is soooo good! I had chance to eat burritos, durum and soja hot dog, humus and potatoes with tomato sauce and alioli sauce. This is soooo tasty!! So yummy!!!
It looks a little expensive but the quantity is enormous!
But don't order too much even if you are hungry! Because it will be too much...

Pros: Super super tasty, Big quantity

Cons: Too much food

Fantástico - Edit

Sitio acogedor, tiene comedor en la planta baja, servicio perfecto. La chica que lo lleva es muy amable, nos asesoró muy bien. La comida de 10, pedimos dos menús 1, con burritos (son muy grandes), crudiespaguetis y hummus, todo riquísimo. Para beber cerveza tostada ecológica. Nos gustó tanto que repetimos al día siguiente, esta vez para llevar, y muy bien organizado, bastante rápido. Esta vez pedimos hamburguesa y patatas y buenísimo también.

Pros: Platos principales muy grandes y contundentes.

Great vegan restaurant in old town of San Sebastian - Edit

I spent 2 days in San Sebastian and had almost all dinners at Green Break.
Everything was great and delicious, I nearly tried all options. My favourite meal was the Burrito, really awesome! The smoothies are also great.
The restaurant is cozy and its localized in the nice old town of San Sebastian. The owner Eva is also a really friendly and interesting person.
Prices are fair, the portions are huge. Eva has also a big sortiment of beers, too.
Best vegan restaurant!

Oasis in a sea of jamon! - Edit

After 3 nights surrounded by jamon and cheese in Basque region, I let out a squeal of delight when we stumbled across this fabulous vegan restaurant! Amazing healthy options and a really friendly team topped off our brilliant and tasty meal. I had the huge burrito, which was filled with all sorts of delicious surprises (including some gorgeous marinated mushrooms) and my husband had an incredible salad complete with raw courgette spaghetti. We've stopped there twice now and can certify the cafe con leche de soja (soya latte) is fantastic too! If you're after some healthy & delicious food - this is the place to go!

Lovely, friendly, yummy - Edit

In a world ruled by chorizo, cheese and other pintxos lies a beacon of veggie-fuelled hope. With friendly staff and picture labeled menu, finding some delicious vegan food is a no-brainer. Large yummy portions are well worth the price. Highly recommend!

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly staff, Convenient placement

Cons: Slightly pricy

expensive, tasty, big portions, poor atmosphere - Edit

I took a menu for 22 Euro including a drink, a smoothie, a burrito and humus. The taste, especially the burrito, was great. The portions were far too big for one meal so I took a lot with me and had dinner as well.
The drink was awful, far too sweet. The green smoothie looked awful as well but tasted ok. The chocolate "tiramisu" was ok but nothing like the taste of a tiramisu.
My body did not react very well on the food. Can´t track it down but could be that the quality is not the highest. Actually at that prices organic food would be appropriate.
The interior is really not welcoming at all. When I was there it was quite loud hardrock playiing, which was also not very cozy, but I liked it. Everything is served in one-way dishes, the desert in some plastic mug. All not very lovely, but as there is few space and it´s a take away maybe one should not expect more.

Really nice organic vegan takeaway!! - Edit

Amazing takeaway with vegan and organic food.
Spelt burger is simply wonderful.All home made.
Also I recommend the Tiramisu and Natural coconut cocktail !!

You order the food to takeaway or enjoy it in a room they have on the ground floor.

I am very happy That there are such fantastic places.
The only bad thing is always is full!!
The staff very friendly, nice and helpful.

Totally recommended if you visit San Sebastian.

Pros: Nice organic-vegan food, Friendly staff, Central location

Cons: Full of people

I was in desperate need of a place in Europe that catered for the vegetarian. These guys served up a perfect feast!

really gooood - Edit

Despite not so favorable reviews on here, I want to iterate that I had a really great dinner!

And it was really quick. And tasted really good. And even better -- All Vegan!

And I also have to mention the lady who was running it was just lively and I was able to have a great conversation with her in Spanish... Even giving me recommendations of places in Madrid to also try. Though, she also spoke great English and was trying to make everyone in establishment happy... Even though there was one tourist that couldn't understand that there was a tv to watch football on there.

I ate in, as there are tables there (bar tables, and a 4 seater upstairs and another area for seating downstairs), and was glad that it wasn't just a take away place as others had suggested.

I had a meal, burrito and side spaghetti of zucchini, with a juice. 12 Euro or so... Tasted great! I tried their nachos too and the last time I had guac that good was when a local taught me to make it in Mexico.

I'll be back.

From wrong to wrongest - Edit

Totally not recommendable to anyone. The restaurant was not very good at the beginning, and the locals expected it to improve, but it has gone from wrong to wrongest. Long waits for low quality food and really poor attendance has made us give them three oportunities and not one more.

Updated from previous review on Thursday June 04, 2015

Cons: radio music, long waiting, price

Great little take away - Edit

100% Vegan fast food joint with an area to eat in. They also deliver in San Sebastian.

The eating area isn't great (it isn't a restaurant with waiters) but the best plan is get the food to go and eat on La Concha beach or the gardens at Palacio de Miramar if the weather's good.

Great staff, good value, no real negatives at all. One of just a few oases in a city which is a bit of a disaster for vegans.

Pros: Great vegan fast food, Good value, All home made, down to the buns

a very good vegan restaurant - Edit

We had lunch there and were very happy with the food. We had humus, buritos, salad, french fries and sushi. Everything tasted great! It is not a big place, there is one table upstares and a few more downstares. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the staff friendly and efficiant

Pros: food, location, staff

Delicious 'fast food' - Edit

This place is a must try! And start with dessert! The lemon pie was absolutely amazing and one of the best desserts we have had since being vegan! The cream is out of this world and the lemon is perfectly tangy. We had the hot dog and burrito for main which were both delicious. The burrito had loads of vegetables and beans and rice and no too much protein which was the perfect balance. I wouldn't recommend the fries as they were super oily and undercooked but everything else was perfect. We will be back!

Pros: delicious food, friendly staff , English speaking
