Good food, okay experience - Edit

Had the menu del dia at a Sunday lunch. A soup, main course and dessert. Paid 13€ and was still feeling hungry when i walked out the door.
Staff is very friendly and are very willing to describe and recommend you dishes, and food tastes great but I'm sorry to say, as with most veggie restaurants in Spain, service is somewhat poor. I did like the decor and atmosphere of the place; it would be a nice place for a date - if you like to eat tasty yet small portions.

Fresh and good food in a spacious place - Edit

Not feeling hungry, I ordered one dish only, arror oceano amor, that is, rice mixed with soya, various vegetables and algae. It was fresh and very good.
The price was moderate : 10 €80, including a 50cl bottle of water.
The staff is polite, attentive and friendly and there was some pleasant Spanish guitar music played softly in the background. It was efficient too, not at all slow (against some other reviewers).
The restaurant is very clean. It is spacious and there is no problem to find seats (in contrast with many other vegan/vegetarian restaurants in Madrid, where reservation is necessary).

Pros: Fresh and very good food, moderate price, Spacious

Homemade food - Edit

This is not a place for an elegant dinner, but it is good if you want to eat something another than veggie fast food. The meals are big and tasty, but some of them were expected to be better (veggie burger). Most of them is the vegan imitation of traditional foods, such as croquetas, empandilla, meat and so on. And the taste is very similar if not better. Also try the vegan cakes!

Pros: traditional food, homestyle ambient, nice staff

Cons: a bit pricey, too much soy

Slow service for a quiet place - Edit

There's a good range of choice on the menu, but was a bit of a language barrier with the server, as she told us the daily special was 'seaweed and cream', which I thought was odd. Was also hard to hear her as the music was quite loud, given that the place only had four tables, including us.
We had two juices, which came with spoons and not straws, also very unusual. Very spacious and bright place, we came in around 3:30pm. It was quiet, but we were in there for an hour and only had a couple of mains. I had a bolognese, which was more like a sauce then something with chunks. Boyfriend had a curry, was nice but also very watery.
Asked for wifi but they told us they didn't know the codes. We were offered water, but it never came and then had to ask for it twice. When paying, you have to go up to the counter and pay, and not wait at your table.

Pros: Nice food, Near the metro

Cons: Slow service, Have wifi but staff don't know the code

Good food - Edit

The vibe was very different from other places I went to, when visiting Madrid. Like others mentioned, it was very bright. It was very spacious, and it almost felt as though you should be quiet, but also made me feel strange being there on my own.

The food was good - I wish there weren't so many options too choose from though! Lots of seating.

Apto para carnistas - Edit

Restaurante en el centro de Madrid. Cuentan con gran variedad de platos en la carta y menú. El sitio es grande. Una de las camareras a veces las lía un poco.

NO VENDEN ALCOHOL (importante si queréis tomar una cerveza, tienen ecológica sin alcohol)

Tiene menú de 10,90 entre semana. Incluye primero, segundo y postre. Recomiendo el seitán al curry de segundo. Quedaréis satisfechos, son platos que llenan pero sin dejarte pesado. En fin de semana creo que asciende hasta los 14. euros. Recomiendo platos de cuchara: las cremas suelen estar muy buenas.

Los platos de la carta ascienden desde 4-11 euros cada uno pero tienes bastantes variantes si quieres llevar a familiares o amigos que no sean veganos: croquetas, seitán, filetes...

Quizá lo peor sea que se hagan un lío a la hora de servir de vez en cuando y según que camarera. Trato agradable por lo demás.

Pros: Muchas opciones Veganas, Platos de cuchara

Cons: Lío servicio

In the vegan prophet house - Edit

Part of the omonimous international franchise, they have a mission: bringing people on the vegan side.
So, expect the most of the food to be a vegan imitation of traditional meat and fish dishes, mostly from the Oriental cuisine.
Food is tasty. No alcohol is served. Daily menu available.
Open 7 days a week, for lunch and dinner. Usually closes in August.
Don't miss their egg-free spanish tortilla and share the generous portion of their chocolate cake.

Pros: Always open

Cons: Cold atmosphere, Scary decoration, No alcoholic drinks

not so good - Edit

A Vegan restaurant in the heart of the city - sounds great. But I was not so happy about my experience - the place has no atmosphere, frankly is unwelcoming with its decor. The offer is not so cheap so I ordered the menu of the day (3-course meal for 10,5e - that's a fair price!) but the creme-soup was really disappointing and the waitress forgot about the bread though I asked for it. Curry was delicious (amazing tempeh), but the juice was artificially sweetened and not organic and I expect an organic juice in vegan restaurant.

Pros: location, english speaking waitress, short waiting for food

Cons: ugly place, not tasty soup

okay - Edit

I got the miso soup and an empanada here. The empanada was good but barely warm and seemed like it had been sitting around for awhile. Still tasty though. The miso soup was good as well but overall the food was just okay. I would go again to try something else maybe. Most of the dishes have mushrooms or pineapple in them which I wasn't a fan of

Pros: nice staff , English menu

Loving loving hut - Edit

A fully vegan place. That's enough to give the place some stars.

The food is good but neither creative nor impressive. Other than that, the staff is awesome and the place clean and well decorated.

They have daily menu which offers a couple of main courses. Overall, recommended.

Pros: Vegan, Staff

Cons: Nice but not outstanding

Average food with no atmosphere - Edit

Found the food boring and average but at quite a high price compared to other nearby restaurants. The veggie burger was dull ad felt like something you could pick up in a supermarket.
We stayed nearby and opted for dinner here as we are both vegetarian and like to support veggie-only restaurants. However, our visit was a disappointment. Staff are very nice and polite, but the whole restaurant is very dull. The interior is dull and too bright with zero atmosphere. It's NOT a place to go for a date, but maybe ok for lunch.
Main dishes are around €8-11 - and for that price you can get much better veggie food in the nearby mixed cuisine restaurants in Malasaña.
The whole place feels very cut and paste, with little passion or homemade items.

Pros: Vegan food, Nice staff

Cons: No atmosphere, Low value for money, Average food

i love it - Edit

love this place.

De la mejor comida vegana que he probado en Madrid, muy hogareña, precios asequibles, el menú esta super bien de opciones y precio y los postres riquísimos. Lo único extraño es una de sus camareras que hay que armarse de paciencia, pero cuando la conoces hasta la coges afecto!

Pros: Todo vegan, sin sorpresas , Céntrico , Aceptan todo tipo de cheques

Cons: Si no reservas posiblemente te tocará esperar, El servicio a vecea puede ser un poco caótico

Enjoyable Dinner - Edit

This was one of the nicer Loving Hut restaurants we have visited. We went for dinner one night, and had the veggie burger & fires, and seitan balls & rice. Servers were helpful and friendly, price was inexpensive and the food was very tasty. The food isn't going to blow your mind, but it is good, and sometimes you just need a good veggie burger!

Pros: Good food, Inexpensive, Friendly staff

Tasty and Loving Hut - Edit

We had been there twice and tried set-lunches and both times we left full, happy and relaxed.
They serve international cuisine so we tried variety of soups (cream of corn, japanese wakame&tofu clear soup, cream of tomato, cream of spinach&patato) every single one was full of flavour and perfectly spiced. Our personal favourites: corn and tomato creams. Main were seitan&tofu curry (a MUST try), fake fish and veg, soy meat with aubergine, peas and peppers, all served with brown rice. Fake fish was absolutely delicious, curry stole our tastebuds, especially deep fried tofu in curry dish was exquisite. For dessert we had warm apple strudel again perfectly spiced with a dash of cinnamon. Staff very nice and polite, spoke good English which is not often found in restaurants. The best Loving Hut we were in. Definitely for regular eats! Set lunch price 10,5 euro/person.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staffr, good portions

I would go back if there was no other choice. - Edit

The waitresses are very friendly, but the interior decor was a bit too minimalistic and bright for my taste. The food was good, but nothing special. The portions could have been a bit larger too. I had the day's menu for 10.50€ and had the choice between three dishes for each course. I chose an algae soup as starter, a seitan vegetable curry as main dish, a strawberry mousse and a soda.

Cons: Nothing is organic., Big restaurant chain

A vegan option in Madrid - Edit

I've only tried take-out a couple of times because I live nearby and the place is too bright and doesn't feel very inspiring. The food is ok, at least is vegan, but flavours have been tweaked to please everyone's palate. As a result, the ethnic dishes turn out to be a bit bland like curries not being spicy or aromatic enough.
