Lovely friendly staff and delicious food - Edit

I found the restaurant when visiting the Rastro market. From the outset I was greeted with warmth and made to feel welcome. The food was delicious and I loved the raw food options. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Pros: Food, Location, Staff

good food and drinks - Edit

Very nice food and drinks in a complete different ambience!
I came here with a vegetarian, a meat eater and 2 vegans and we were all very happy with the food. The portions are a bit small and they could be bigger!

Very nice lunch - Edit

I had a lunch combination here - a tempeh main dish - good but a shade tough, a mousse dessert, and a banana water drink. Food was good. Service was helpful. Ambiance was pleasantly rustic.

segundas partes sí que fueron buenas - Edit

Cuando me enteré que este sitio era de las mismas personas que otro restaurante en Madrid que no me entusiasmó mucho, pensaba que iba a ser tres cuartas partes de lo mismo y desde que lo abrieron estuve aplazando ir.
Finalmente fui ayer a cenar con unas amigas y superó todas mis expectativas.
Al ser jueves por la noche cuando entramos nosotras estaba todo muy tranquilito pero según fuimos terminando el local se llenó, aún así, no me pareció agobiante y se podía hablar perfectamente. Me parece que para otros días de la semana es mejor ir con reserva.
La atención de 10, el camarero que nos atendió estuvo muy pendiente de nosotras. Punto extra por ofrecer jarra de agua gratis en vez de botellas (esto es algo imposible en muchos restaurantes de Madrid que solo ponen pegas).
De comer nos pedimos las croquetas para compartir, el risotto y el super canelón.
Debo decir que las croquetas no me entusiasmaron mucho, yo soy muy de croqueta clásica y estas modernillas no me terminan de gustar. La próxima vez que vaya pedimos el tartar que tenía una pinta estupenda.
El risotto tenía muchísimo sabor, de hecho fue lo que más me gustó ya que yo me esperaba un arroz con verduras sin más.
Y sobre el canelón decir que si no os gustaba el sabor del foie y esos sabores fuertes no os lo pidáis. A mí me encantó pero a mis amigas no tanto, me lo comí yo sola y acabe a reventar. Así que este plato mejor para compartir.
En resumen: volveré segurísimo ya que tanto la atención, como la comida y el precio por la calidad están genial.

Pros: sitio espacioso, botella de agua

Wonderful vegan dessert - Edit

If I could give 3.5 stars I would...
Firstly, make a reservation for dinner. I didn't know I needed one, and while the restaurant was not busy it seemed to be an issue to seat me without one.
The Vietnamese rolls were plated on some sauce. This made the rolls soggy. The peanut dipping sauce on the side was very thick and needed some chili or soy because it tasted only of peanut butter.
I ordered the berry cheesecake which was fantastic. 5 stars for the dessert!

Pros: Delicious dessert, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Expensive

Super nice restaurant - Edit

We had some really awesome tapas at this very charming restaurant. Food is all vegan with some gluten free and raw options available.
There is an English menu but staff will probably still speak Spanish with you, they're very nice though.

Pros: delicious tapas, nice atmosphere and staff

Nice, clean, creative, cozy - Edit

Very tasty food and smooth taste. Many choices for main courses. Dessert was not too sweet. Good size portion. Could be quite packed, so reservation might be a good idea. Recommended.

Pros: all vegan, many choices, delicious

OK - Edit

The food was nothing special, a bit greasy and without clear taste. The waiter was very nice, although we had to wait for our meals to be served. Quite pricey.

good food, nice choice - Edit

Friendly staff and service. I ate here a few times with nonvegan friends. Everyone was happy. A tiny bit pricey (but i didn't pay so it was worth it).

Great service and atmosphere - Edit

Obviously a very popular place. I went with a meat eating friend who is also a chef so a tough customer to please. We tried the carrot wine which is sparkling and was too sweet for out taste but we had to try the Unknown. I was very excited to have Vietnamese rolls but was very disappointed as instead of crunchy raw ingredients wrapped in rice paper, it appeared to be blanched mushy filling wrapped in at least 3 layers of rice paper, the peanut sauce was delicious though. Kudos to our server who seemed very passionate and was eager to change it for something else . We also had the recommended croquettes which were delicious and seemed to be ordered by almost every table around us. For mains I had the raw veg lasagna which really was a delight. My friend had the tacos which were a bit too sweet and we thought they could have made use of the delicious fresh potted herbs on the kitchen sill and garnished it with some corriander. We shared the raw nougat which did not disappoint.
I have awarded 4 stars as almost 50 percent of our meal was not great but the remainder was amazing and we were given the option to exchange what we did not enjoy for something else.

Pros: Service, Atmosphere, Price

A gem! - Edit

This restaurant has the loveliest staff, the most fantastic range of Madrid craft beers (why do other places in Madrid not feature more of these!), and a creative menu. I had the raw lasagne, my partner the quinoa & cashew balls with veggies & vermicelli. Both pleasant. What made the experience outstanding is the little extras - a tapas with the beer, a little parsnip gazpacho (?!) in the prettiest of ceramic mugs - and as mentioned the lovely staff with great beer selection. I would happily come back here if in Madrid again.

Pros: great staff, beer selection , tapas

Delicious and creative - Edit

I have been here twice, the food is delicious for an affordable price. The first time I had the Sushi Burger and I must say they combined the flavors of these two completely different foods to make a great dish, it has the best of both. The second time I had the tacos, they were tasty as well, but a smaller portion. I definitely recommend this place!
Both times I went with a carnivore friend and she loved everything she ate!

Definitely BEST VEGAN restaurant in Madrid - Edit

I've been last month on holidays in Madrid and I found this amazing vegan restaurant.
Very well located, beautiful, staff was amazingly nice and friendly.
When I took the menu, I was really happy to find it in English, actually, as you know how hard it is beeing in Spain and understand nothing, of the menu.
They have a HUGE selection of organic and local beers, which it was niiiice! And then the food, oh my Gosh, how good it was the food! Soooo tasty. Seriously , you can no imagine! That "lasagne"... That "Susshi", That "croquets"... You cannot leave that place with out try those croquettes ..
Everything was organic, homemade, amazing!
It is a MUST if you visit Madrid. Don't miss it ;)

Pros: No pro, No pro, No pro

Cons: Excellent Tasty, Super friendly , Very good value

Nice Date tasty Tapas - Edit

The staff are lovely here. Drinks were great. The tapas seemed the winner. Our favourite was the tortilla in the whole evening.
A little bit of a fancier dining spot.
Can't say I recommended the food on the mains menu and we found the food quite salty on this evening for us.
Super lovely setting, we will come back for tapas.

Pros: Staff, Setting, Drinks

Cons: Strange mains, Salty, Stools

A different concept of restaurant and bar. We had dinner two times in a week. Thanks so much to La Encomienda.

Pros: tasty food, 5 minutes walking from the center, Really Cheap

the best vegan in madrid - Edit

La encomienda is a vegan restaurant first class . The food is delicious and the attention unbeatable in the neighborhood that I like Madrid . I recommend it also for being very welcoming with a great atmosphere. The price is one of the best I've seen on my trip around Europe.

Pros: food , attention , location and price

Cons: It is not smart

Cool place, delicious food! - Edit

I've been here 3 times since I discovered the place, 1 month ago.
All the food is vegan (and free of gluten), and everything I’ve tried so far is delicious, and the presentation is also amazing. I still have some courses to try, they look all so good...
The restaurant is located in Latina, so it is also a great choice for having a beer (always accompanied with a tapa). The staff are so friendly and helpful, and the restaurant has a great vibe.

I highly recommend you to go, you will repeat it!

Pros: Food (variety, taste), Location, Atmosphere
