Great spot

Most of the menu is vegan. The vegetarian options are clearly marked. I had the epiniadas for starter. Served in a little bucket of delicious creamy sauce. I had the Thai salad for main. It was quite small but delicious and nutritious and left me space for the chocolate dessert which was a really light warm chocolate cake with berry dressing and ice cream. All the desserts were vegan - an apple pastry and a rice pudding. Probably our most expensive meal in Alicante - 65 euro for two including drinks and tip and three courses plus an amuse bouche. Definitely recommend. Helpful waitress. Nice interior.

Very tasty

Cute small place with open kitchen. Unlike the description The food was mostly asian, South American and italian inspired. The food was very tasty, and the service was great. Unlike other reviewers I think the portions were fine, and it was very clear which items were not vegan. But I would definitely go for 3 courses. Loved it.

Everything was just right!

I can not fault this place!
Food was filled with flavour and freshness. The gnocchi was probably the best gnocchi I've ever had!
Staff were so attentive and the place had a great atmosphere and excellent background music.

Pros: Great atmosphere and music , Freshly cooked food, Just the right sized portions

Special people and delicious food

We ate at Lluvia for the first time on a rainy January evening, and the cosiness of this charming restaurant was matched by the warm welcome we received from the staff. They described every dish on the menu in detail. Service was efficient and attentive, and everything done with a big smile.

All of the dishes we chose were delicious, a small starter of empanadas with salmorejo to share, then a main each - aubergine cannelloni and a yummy pizza unlike any I've had before.

It's not often that I consider the dessert the star of the show, but their vegan rice pudding is exceptional - sweet, delicious comfort food, beautifully topped with fresh fruits.

We're not in Alicante very often but when we're next in town Lluvia will be at the top of our list.

We've been back several times since my original review and today had the Vietnamese rolls, burgers and the rice pudding which was just as gorgeous as I remembered.

El menú no se entiende

Llegamos sin reserva entre semana, bastante temprano y nos hicieron sitio, el camarero nos atendió bien, pero la comida está muy mal marcada en el menú, no está claro qué es vegano, qué lleva huevo o leche.
Las raciones son caras y pequeñas, además el local es estrecho (4 adultos y los niños encima de las rodillas ya éramos multitud). Los baños no tienen cambiador para bebés, así que tuvimos que hacer malabares con el niño.

Pros: Comida bonita, Tranquilo

Cons: Menú no se entiende, Muy caro, No es cómodo para grupos

Tasty food / Small servings

Mains are ridiculously small and thus, overpriced. Fancied something healthy and had a mango salad for lunch which was really fresh and tasty but was so scarce that left me hungry. No complaints about the dessert though, a delicious Sachertorte which in the end barely kind of saved the experience. TBH I wouldn't come back

Pros: Tasty dishes, Desserts, Location

Cons: Small servings/overpriced, labels vegetarian but lefts vegan unlabelled

Such a nice restaurant!

Loved this restaurant! The staff is so friendly and the atmosphere was so nice. We had a fajita and summer roll as a starter. For our main we ordered gnocchi and the mango salad. Such a big variety of vegan dishes and everything tasted fresh and homemade.

Elaborate and tasty

I had the Vietnamese roll and asparagus hot dog - both were flavoursome and elaborate. Nice lo-fi decor and very friendly staff. All dishes are vegan apart from a few vegetarian meals that are clearly labelled. I will definitely be back to try more

Beste verjaardagsdiner ooit

Hier heb ik mijn verjaardag gevierd en hadden eigenlijk ergens anders gereserveerd, maar dat was niet echt een gezellige plek. Bij de buren had ik eerder d ze week koffie gedronken en herinnerde mij dit schattige restaurantje en wat een geluk bij een ongeluk!! Een hele leuke kaart met hele lekkere kleine gerechtjes. Met zijn 3e 80 euro kwijt en alles gegeten wat we wilde en 2 drankjes p.p.

Pros: Meer vegan dan vega, Uniek en goed te betalen, Heel lekker

Food looks higher quality than it is

Almost all vegan menu with just 2 (just go all vegan imo) vegetarian options (misleading marked with the vegan 'V' symbol). Nice place with a chill atmosphere but it's too expensive for the portion sizes.
Also while the food dishes look amazing, they unfortunately don't taste half as good as they look.

Comida rica pero poca cantidad

La comida estaba rica pero las raciones de los platos principales parecen entrantes, son bastante pequeñas y a 12 o 13€ de media por plato sale un poco caro. Un entrante y dos principales con una botella de agua pequeña y uno de los postres más económicos nos salió por 42€. Para mi gusto se debería aumentar la cantidad de los principales. Yummy food but scarce quantity so you feel like you have to go somewhere else to finish eating...

Pros: Comida rica

Cons: Poca cantidad , Caro
