No frills.. but veg were never meant to be frilly! - Edit

I love places like this they operate for the love of plant based food..it’s small the seating and decor are basic but the food if you eat plant based is great..the staff are welcoming and good at explaining in English how the menu works and what food they have.. funny moment as well when the music playlist finished it skipped to play “Hear It Is Merry Christmas” by Slade... in April...loved it all.

Pros: All Vegan, Authentic , Great Value

Very nice food - Edit

The food was very fresh and delicious (all vegan) and the staff was friendly. Unfortunately they didn‘t have an english menu, which made it a bit difficult because I don‘t speak spanish at all.

One of the best in Bilbao! - Edit

The prices are reasonable, the staff is friendly, and the atmosphere of the bar/restaurant is cozy. I had the house vegan burger made of oats and sweet potato(?) - it was so good. Even the burger bun was amazing. It's conveniently open throughout the day, so I was able to grab a late lunch around 4:30ish, when many restaurants would be closed. The staff can communicate in castellano and english as far as I know. Google Pay works here too!

Pros: completely vegan, pet friendly

Cons: not ideal for very large groups

Good vegan food - Edit

Visited twice during our stay in Bilbao, had the vegan sushi, several of the starters and the vegan burger. Relaxed vibe, friendly staff, large menu. Is small and can be a bit crowded, so probably good to book a table if you want to be sure to have one during busier times.

Vegans delight - Edit

Delicious menu with so many options! Everything is vegan :0 burgers, salads, soups and Japanese and desserts. We had the 13 euro option which allowed us 6 sushi, 6 gyoza and a miso soup. All a delight! Also the atmosphere and setting is lovely.

Cosy restaurant, good service and location - Edit

The service was really good, the waitress really friendly. They also can speak English. Its possible to sit inside or outside so there is enough space. The interior is very modern and hip, we liked it. The food was great, a lot of the ingredients are organic. We got our food in a quiet short time, it was perfect. We had a menu: vegan burger mojito for 10 Euro, a good price. We also ate some starters and desserts (between 2 and 5 Euro)

Pros: good food, a lot organic ingredients , good location , good service

Not too happy - Edit

I went there one evening, we were the only ones in the bar, yet the food was quite slow. We ordered the burger (read good reviews) and a sandwich. Both were made at the moment but they were really really dry and not tasty.

Pros: Good location, near city centre

Cons: Expensive, Really slow

we didn't like - Edit

The first time we went, they had a problem and couldn't open at noon but at 13:30.
So we were the day after. The service is awful : dishes stay on the bar a long time, where there is people leaning, before to be served, the cooker caressed a dog, a man have put his fingers on the plate of dessert (to eat crumbs !!), we ordered a starter who never came ...
Gyozas was not so good and for the burger, there is too much bread and not enought vegetables and sauce !
Vegans, prefer to go at Gustu or Bohemian !

Cons: Lack of hygiene, bad service

fresh clean restaurant/cafe - Edit

Cute cafe, with lots of dips on the menu. Things like fresh veggie burgers and sandwiches (7€) are on the menu. Had some guac (good) and hummus (decent) but at 4€ for a bowl, would not get again.
Overall I probably would not go back

Pros: all vegan, biodegradable takeaways

Cons: expensive, carrot cake was pretty disappointing

Fresh tasty Vegan Sushi and more - Edit

Amazing chilled place, went for the set menu. Not much room inside but sat outside in the seated area. Went for the set menu ...€13 for 6 different makis and 2 other choices for a large selection of foods and drink (inc glass of wine). Also could resist the seitan sandwich (tofu and tempeh also available). All food tasty from start to finish. Friendly staff even with my terrible Spanish. Would revisit (hmmm maybe tomorrow before my flight!).

Pros: Choice, Quality, Friendly service

Go there! - Edit

A small restaurant near the river, nice staff, good food: We had the taboulé, burgers and the guacamole. It was very good. Small place, but we got a table outside. If you go there in lunchtime bring time to wait and get your food to go!

Great - Edit

Was there today, had the sushi menu: 6 pieces of sushi (different flavours), 6 gyoza and the camelia pate (made from tofu, rice miso, seaweed and some spices). I also ordered the homemade limonade and a piece of cake. (My table was full of food just for me, and it was less then 20 euros, so not as expensive as i expected from the two dollar review here).
Not only are you eating vegan and tasty but also healthy,lots of organic products and without sugar.

The girl working there was really nice too, she expained to me what everything was and gave me a couple of tips to eat vegan pintxos around the "casco viejo".

If you're in Bilbao, definitely worth a visit.

Pros: Quality, personal, location

Amazing little caffe - Edit

Small but cozy vegan caffe. The food on offer is really fairly priced and varied. I had the sushi and my partner the burger. Both home made and super tasty. The guacamole was the best I have had to date.
Definitely worth more than one visit ;)

Great burgers - Hamburguesas estupendas - Edit

I love this little and tiny cafe near Bilbao's river. Friendly owners and staff. Their burgers are among the best worldwide and the carrot cake is simply supreme!

Me encanta este pequeño y acogedor local. Los dueños muy majos. Sus hamburguesas están entre las mejores del mundo y su tarta de zanahoria es simplemente suprema.

Pros: Burgers, Toast with tomato, Friendly Owners

Cons: Opens a bit late, rarely suitable for breakfast

Sushi! - Edit

De viaje a Bilbao no desperdicié la oportunidad de ir a La Camelia y probar uno de los pocos sitios veganos de la ciudad.
Tardaron bastante en atendernos, supongo que porque ese día tendrían más trabajo de lo normal, pero su trato fue cordial.
Tomamos el sushi, que venían 6 piezas distintas, cada una de un sabor distinto, muy buenas todas. Los gyozas estaban riquísimos! Fue lo que más me gustó. El guacamole y el sandwich de seitán que pedimos no fueron nada del otro mundo. Y por último la hamburguesa que también estaba bastante bien. Recomiendo el sushi y los gyozas, sin duda alguna!!
El precio no es excesivo

Pros: Ambiente agradable, Buen precio, Buena comida

Cons: Mucha espera

Supreme food - Edit

I have visited "La Camelia" twice, and when I wanted to eat there at third time, it was full! This bar is getting better every time I am there.

It serves a lot of maki types (with sprouts, lentils, even with rose jam), vegeburgers, soups, gyozas, smoothies, etc. It is not the cheapest, but still affordable. And always have a great carrot cake.

Pros: delicious food

Cons: small (difficult to get a site), moderate prices
