Los Huertos 54, Nerja, Spain

Serves meat, vegan options available. Vegans can rest assured that your food is 100% percent vegan. Every day there are 3 vegan main-courses, a vegan soup and usually more. Inform the server you are vegan and they will describe in detail what is vegan and how it is prepared. Because all food is prepared to order the food does take some time to arrive. Gluten-free food also available. Open Mon 12:00am-12:00am, Mon-Tue 12:30pm-3:30pm, 7:00pm-12:00am, Thu-Sun 12:30pm-3:30pm, 7:00pm-12:00am. Closed Wed.

First Review by Thejaysta

over priced - Edit

A few vegan options, food tastes good but is really over priced for what you get and the place itself is not that posh to charge £17 for burger and chips! We also had some tofu curry with rice noodles and it was £14,5. Soup for £6,5. Happy to find some vegan food in Nerja, but would not go again.

Pros: friendly staff, near the beach

Cons: over priced

Best Vegan Restaurant in ALL of Nerja - Edit

My family and I visited Nerja for 7 days this past week, both my Dad and I are Vegan. I was nervous that I would only be eating Fruits and Veggies the whole trip. La Joya was suggested to us by a family friend. The restaurant's atmosphere is beautiful and cozy, with local artwork, excellent music playlists, candles on the tables and outdoor seating in addition to indoor. The tables are always set perfectly upon arrival. The food itself is the most amazing thing I have tasted! Authentic ingredients, everything made from scratch and unique. The portions are well planned out, the salads are large and staged beautifully, one salad filled me. I recommend any of the vegan salads! I've tried them all. The appetizers are delicious, my favourite was the pate and aromatic garlic bread! A treat to your tastebuds! The whole menu lends itself to accommodate meat eaters in your family, vegetarians and vegans. There is something for everyone which is why we are there three times. If you're feeling peckish around lunch time, La Joya prices their desserts at 1 euro each and has many specials. Now the staff is one of the best things about the restaurant, the wait staff speak excellent English, they totally understand Vegan diets and make accommodations. They're quick to deliver the food, they are polite and give you space while you eat. They are also great conversationalists and truly care about your experience there. My dad wanted a mint style coffee that was Vegan, they didn't have one on the menu so they handmade him on from scratch. The second night we went the waitress/bartender was not there who made it, so the current waiter called her at home to ask for the recipe, and 10 minutes later she showed up with the mint liquor flavoring by bicycle. We were astonished at how generous and completely accommodating they were. In Canada wait staff would NEVER do anything like that ever. If you do go please tip these people well! They put so much time, effort and care into everything they do. If they make a mistake they will not only fix it but do their best to make up for it in anyway. I HIGHLY recommend La Joya for anyone to eat at, but especially Vegans! They are the most accommodating restaurant I've ever been to. I look forward to vacationing next year and eating there every night! Thank you La Joya!

Pros: Incredible Food, Phenomenal Staff, Beautiful Atmosphere

Cons: No Cons

Poor vegan options - Edit

Tasty food but over priced and not many choices for vegans. I had a nice morrocan curry but it doesn't come with rice or bread..that you have to order separately and it is about €4 extra! My husband had a good veggie burger but if you want chips you have to pay €4.50 on top of the all ready pricey meal. The waitress was friendly, but didn't know if the hummus was vegan..she had to go and ask. For a restaurant that advertise as a vegan veggie friendly place I would expect that the staff knew what was vegan..especially hummus. ..

Pros: Found vegan food in Nerja, Tasty, Clean washrooms

Cons: Over priced , Lack of choice, No rice or potatoes with mains

FANTÁSTICO - Edit

Comenzar felicitando a los componentes del restaurante LA JOYA por su amabilidad y trato hacía sus clientes.

La comida...sin palabras...una pena no poder haber probado todos los platos veganos propuestos pero así tenemos excusa para volver. Como se nota la comida que es hecha con amor y con ganas verdaderas, la persona que hace estos platos disfruta cocinando, nuestras felicitaciones. Lo poco que comimos, Hamburguesa, wok de verduras con Tempe y el hummus casero... estaban como para dejar algo en el plato, RIQUÍSIMOS!!

En resumen...Lugar, personal de trabajo y por supuesto la comida INCREIBLES.
Lo más importante y curioso, ya que nunca me ha pasado, iba con mi perrita (Bretona) y le puse el agüita como suelo hacer, estábamos en la terraza y una camarera al verla me dijo que si le quería agua para la perrilla y le dije que ya tenía, me sorprendió ya que nunca me la habían ofrecido para ella. El trato no es solo hacia las personas sino hacia todos/as.

Really really nice place - Edit

As we came into "La Joya", there was a really friendly woman who greets us. When she gave us the english menu, she asked, wether we´re vegetarian. As I answered that I live vegan she took the time to describe which meals they could prepare vegan and fastly she went to the kitchen to ask, wether the daily soup is vegan (it was). I took the Veggie Burger and it was delicous. There was a patty made out of nuts and vegetables (carrots, spinach, etc.), avocado, dijon mustard, fresh salad and some more ingredients. Last but not least: The location is comfy.

Pros: delicous food, great service, comfy environment

Cons: It isn´t cheap, but the prices are fair.

Good For Non-veg Restaurant - Edit

Very friendly staff who clearly explained what they could make vegan for us. Even had soya milk. Only a couple of vegan options buy they were very good. With outside seating as well.

The staff were incredibly friendly, and I cannot speak highly enough of of this establishment.

Pros: Top notch flavours, Many vegetarian dishes
