First Review by cheroyma

Favorite spot! - Edit

For the most part, San Sebastian is a vegan desert. However, this little gem makes up for the (almost) complete lack of options elsewhere in the city. We ate here every day we were in San Sebastian and liked (or loved) everything we tried. My husband finally found a vegan lasagna that stands up to non-vegan versions. Definitely check them out if you're in the area.

Pros: great food, reasonably priced

Holidays - Edit

Closed till september 6th, bummer, would have loved to try their food! We took quite a walk on us just to find out that they're in holiday, they could have written it on their website which we checked before-hand.

Pros: The menu sounds good?

Cons: Bad communication

great vegan place - Edit

I have been in san sebastian for a few days, and although there are some places with vegan and vegetarian options, it was a relief to find landare. The food was great, people smily and friendly, and the price totally ok.
Make a reservation or go very early, otherwise its impossible to find a table.

Pros: price, quality of food

Very good - Edit

This place is really good. The food is nice (not perfect), the staff is very friendly, the vegan offer is wide and varied (including awesome desserts) and the price is affordable, 15 EUR with 2 dishes, dessert, drink and bread. All bio and vegan. Tif you come to San Sebastian this is a MUST (in which case you should book in advance).

Pros: All bio and vegan, Affordable price, Varied offer

Cons: Must book in advance

Still the best option for vegans in San Sebastian - Edit

but forget it if you have kids, they don't like them. No problems at Garraxi or Green Break.

Great tiramisu though!

Pros: 100% vegan, tiramisu

Cons: they don't accommodate children

In our trip from Holland to the south of Spain, we decided to take a detour of about 3 hours just to check out this place. After 2 days traveling surviving basically out of cold meals and without having the chance to visit any vegan restaurants, we were quite excited about Landare.
You can imagine our disappointment when we were told that the dog who shares our lives (also vegan, by the way) couldn't come in. Just a bit of background: we take care of a borador (border collie/labrador) of 12 years of age who never bark, is completely house trained, doesn't beg, lies invisible under tables and, well, behaves better than most humans to be honest. Anyway, no point trying to explain anything to the people in Landare: apparently, they had trouble with some dogs or something like that and they wouldn't allow animals. Don't get me wrong, they were not being rude. Although they refused to individualized, as so often happens, and simply decided to generalize and said no. Since my partner was famine (gluten intolerance is not a nice addition to being a vegan when trying to feed yourself), I decided to stay out in the rain (no kidding) with our canine friend while she ate something. However, the staff didn't speak any English and I, for obvious reasons, was not able to translate for her/them. Odd, since they did say that they had a menu in English. So, unfortunately, we had to leave without much to base our culinary review on.
I admit that I perhaps should have called to make sure that our doggie companion could come in, but look at it this way:
They own a restaurant promoting racial equality. You come along with your Asian and Congolese friends. They excuse themselves right after telling you that your friends are not allowed because they are not of the liking of some customers. ????
Comparisons are not my cup of tea. However, I found it necessary in this case. Landare states: "(...) perfect setting to enjoy nature-friendly, (...) that cause no harm to animals". Hm, friendly, really? Does a lack of animosity make you friendly? What is the real meaning of being vegan? I applaud Landare for making more non-vegans have a cruelty free meal. I really do. However, we vegans (both humans and non-humans) would also like to be treated equally ;D
I wished I could have tasted your meals. Unfortunately, my review has to be based in other points like common sense =)
Best of lucks though!

Pros: Vegan, Nice premises, Seems popular among non-vegans

Cons: Non-humans animals not allowed o.O, No English here, Opening times a bit difficult

aliaarmistead 27 Jun 2013 - This is absurd and has nothing to do with the restaurant - you cannot expect everybody to share your feelings about dogs and general customer expectations have to be respected also

newlia 22 Aug 2013 - Absolutely agree with the previous response. It has nothing to do with the food and the comparison of a dog with a person of a different race is completely absurd. No common sense here.

Lomedin 06 Nov 2015 - You two completely missed the point. Moreover, it seems like you just created the accounts to leave those responses, suspicious.
Firstly, you should read the review properly, because it is CLEARLY about the restaurant. Feelings about dogs? I see, you, like them, love to generalize. I'd pity you, if I cared. "general customer expectations have to be respected also" - That "also" can be ignored, since that is the only thing they cared about. And not even that, because (if you would have read the review properly), they failed to fulfill any expectations we -as customers- had. At re-reading my review, perhaps I was too generous with them, after all. Even more considering these stupid responses.
Moreover, it has nothing to do with the food because the people "attending" us wouldn't serve us food, even when we were so willing to try it, plus starving. If you find the comparison absurd, you are obviously either a speciesist or a moron. Try reading and expanding your mind. My sense might not be common, but it certainly is normal and logical. Unlike silly and simplistic responses.
Interestingly, I read in another review that they also don't like children. Heh. It not like I like children much myself, although it seems the people in this restaurant have their share of issues regarding customers who, quoting the simpleton from the first response, don't "share" their "feelings" about whatever the heck they have in mind.

my favourite vegan place in Donosti - Edit

Friendly staff, very good food and delicious deserts!

Cons: limited hours

Best.Food.Ever. - Edit

This restaurant should be ranked up among the best- and not just among Vegan places. Upon arriving, you will be given a hot/cold soup and then the menu of the season. Service is friendly and efficient and the waitress tried her best to explain all the dishes to us patiently. The combination of tastes are so subtle yet so powerful...it left us craving for more (hence we made a reservation for the next day- reservations highly recommended!). The menu comes with water, bread and a glass of wine. A MUST-GO. I would go back to San Sebastian just to eat there again.

Pros: excellent food, good value, friendly staff

just great - Edit

Coming from Germany this restaurant seemed expensive for me on the first view. Still I went there four times during my stay. You are served three dishes that you can choose out of six options each. Before you get a starter, with the dishes good whole grain bread and water or wine. The dishes do not only taste great, they are also an eye catcher and the service is superfast. In summer 2012 it was 13 Euro on weekdays and 16 Euro on samedis (open only noon from 1pm on). The atmosphere is very peaceful and now I have to say that you really get a lot for the money.

Great place to hide from the rain - Edit

THe place opened 15 minutes after 1300hrs, though it was definately worth the wait. We were the only foriegners there and the place was packed. Four courses, wine, bread and green tea for 12Euros, tho. 15euros on Saturdays. The staff speak limited english though were really friendly and the food was great.

Finally, this is a good one !!! - Edit

I have been searching all over France for a real vegan restaurant, all in vain. Now that I found one across the border, I can eat in peace. Fine tasting dishes, incredible price for quality and the staff is wonderful !!! Over rated, perhaps compared to vegan restaurant outside latin countries, but here down in the south of europe, this is a great place to eat.

Pros: taste, fast service, friendly staff

Cons: none, none, none

Must Visit - Edit

We visited this restaurant a few times while travelling through Europe. We loved eating here so returned many times. Well priced and delicious meals. The waitresses dont speak very good english but enough to get by with our broken Spanish. They have a set price of 12 euro for a three course meal plus a drink so its a bargain. THere are around 5 options for each course to choose from. It had a great atmosphere and is normally packed with locals. busiest time of the day is between 3pm and 4pm. They are only open for lunch which is a shame as we would have dined there for dinner often too. Highly recommend.

Pros: good value, good options, yummy food

Cons: staff not english speaking

As good as everyone says! - Edit

Thanks to the reviews here, my partner and I went in search of Landare for lunch yesterday. After a week and a half of travelling around the Pyrenees and wrestling with non-veg friendly menus in foreign languages (and a few meals where meat appeared despite clear instructions to the contrary), it was such a relief to have a full meal that was 100% veggie. Not to mention nutritionally complete with lots of legumes.
Extremely cheap for this city (12 euros) and the atmosphere was warm and comfortable. (Though we laughed at the Enya Christmas Carols CD they were playing - in July!)
The staff speak little to no English, but we have enough Castilliano to get by and had a lovely meal.

NOTE: Like many restaurants in San Sebastian, I don't think they are open for the supper hour, at least not during the week, only lunch.

Pros: excellent food, low price, cozy atmosphere

Cons: possibly not open for dinner

I want to come back! - Edit

The best veggie restaurant in town, and one of my favourites. All dishes are homemade, with seasonal ingredientes. Staff is really nice, and the place is relaxing and beautiful. I highly recommend to reserve, even on weekdays and for two people.

Good value - Edit

Landare is a lunch restaurant with a 'menu de dia'. You pick a starter, a main, and a dessert from 5 or 6 choices, for €15. Appetisers, bread, water, and a glass of wine are included in the price.

The food is traditional western meals (we had lasagna and beef Wellington) made with rehydrated TVP. It's fine but not special. The desserts are the high point, with the caflan (creme caramel with coffee liquer) the standout.

The restaurant itself is clean and new, and the service is excellent. No English, but the menu is all vegan and fairly easy to grok.

Pros: Value, Atmosphere, Service

Cons: Too much TVP
