Small portions, a bit pricey

Plenty of options but they don't change quite often. I ate beyond meat raviolis and my friend avocado tartar.

If you compare it with so many excellent vegan places in Madrid, portion sizes are small here and it's a bit pricey for the quality. That's why I rated three stars.

Good food

A bit more upmarket than most vegan places in Madrid I went to but not fine dining. Had some good food - really liked the calamari and the croquettes. The Russian salad smelt quite eggy and the shrimps on top were very slimy but otherwise we liked it.

Tasty spanish food

Loved this restaurant! They have a lot of traditional Spanish dishes in vegan version. I tried their paella and cachopo and both tasted amazing.

Don't pass on the desserts!

Its not a cheap place, potion is small, buuut, its all worse it! Very delicious, creative and refreshing!

We had cheeseboard and salmon tapas for starters. 👍👍 My none vegan friends are surprised by the vegan parmesan and the vegan salmon.😆

For main dish we had seafood paella, and meatballs Tajine. The plantbased seafood has really interesting texture.

Dessert were the best value dishes, surprisingly. We ordered cheesecake, tiramisu, and carrot cake. Bigger portion compare to the dishes. And same level of craftsmanship.

I haven't had such a good vegan dining experience for longtime!

One of my favourites

I appreciate they always surprise you with something new in the menu, service or decoration. They always try to improve in all ways.
We ordered avocado tartar. It was delicious, but too salty. At least, I could appreciate the flavours, so it wasn't too bad.
Then Tajin. Excellent!! It reminded me the shakshuka my mum used to cook when I was a child.
For dessert, we had vegamisù. It looked like made in the moment and tasted less sweet, so healthier. Thanks!!
Regarding the staff, in general, they are very correct. Chris, the maitre, is always excellent!! Just one thing I did not like is when the waiter or waitress don't say "sorry" or "perdón" or "permiso" when they want to pick up something from your table, it is not polite. I understand the restaurant was full and the staff is flying, but you won't waste your time for saying a word. The opposite, you will have a better ambience. I worked for 6 years in hospitality, I know what I am saying.
Of course, I will get back to try more deliciousness :)

Good lunch

I had a pretty good lunch here. Non fast-food vegan places are a bit rare in Madrid, so this was a nice change during my trip. Staff and friendly and lunch was nice and hassle-free.

Pros: Tasty, Friendly staff

Una cena asombrosa y elegante

Todos los platos que comimos estaban exquisitos.
La tabla de quesos veganos nos dejó flipando, tuvimos que preguntar a la camarera si nos habíamos metido en un lugar vegetariano por accidente (por suerte era 100% vegano).
El cachopo daba el pego totalmente. Yo nunca fui de comer ternera antes de dejar de comer carne, pero aún así puedo asegurar que estaba logradísimo. Incluso me dio un poco de grima.

Last minute lunch

They changed lunch hours to end at 4pm and we got there just after. The waiter asked the kitchen if it was ok and then seated us. We had the artichokes and the sauce was great but we didn’t like the “ham”. The potatoes are to die for. We didn’t want to keep them there late, but they were in no hurry. We had the chocolate cake for dessert and it was great. Highly recommend this place.

Pros: Food, Service

One of my favorites in Madrid

A great place for a special occasion. They offer many vegan versions of traditional Spanish meals like paella, rabo de toro, calamares, alcachofas, etc. Also, they combine other dishes from the world like "pastela marroquí" and the menu changes from time to time. It's not cheap but it's worth it.

Pros: Amazing dishes, Traditional Spanish dishes, Very nice ambiance

Cons: Quite expensive , Plates size is ok but not big

Comida rica

La comida estaba bastante rica pero bastante cara, poca cantidad. Por ejemplo la sidra asturiana a un precio bastante elevado. El trato de algún camarero a mejorar.
