Brilliant energy

What a wonderful place! They give yoga and meditation classes, the food is really good, and Lia and Eduardo really make you feel at home.
They seve a buffet for every meal and most of the food is vegan, and if not it gets a note.
I've read you can also go there just to eat, but why not go there for a week? You'll be grateful to yourself for doing it.

Pros: Very positive energy, Really good home-made food, you can get a complete package with yoga, surf, st

Cons: The food is so good you might find yourself eating, You don't want to go home after a week

Always served great vegan food. One of the bests ive ever got during travelling. Fresh, homemade and really tasty. I will definately come back.

Pros: People, Food, Athmosphere

what a wonderful experience

We are travelling portugal and having a really hard time finding good vegan places. We were so happy to discover omsassim ,which is a new vegetarian hostel for yoga lovers but not just. We arrived there afte reading about the place online and it wouldn't be a lie to say that spending the evening there was one of the magical experiences of our trip.
The place is located in a village next to ericera .
wonderful view . The owner Lia was so nice over the phone -*make sure to call or write them on facebook to maker reservation and see if there are vegan options that day*. The place is vegeterian but when we ate there only one dish was not vegan. After eating chips and bread for a week it was so refreshing to have a really health and tasty dinner. Soup,rice with veg, avocado salad, tufu marinated-all so good and home made. It's also a lovely experience to share the dinner table with the hostel residents. We met great peoole from england, Australia, Greece and had such a good conversation.we paid 9 euros pe person for a buffet -no drinks included, very reasonable price.

Pros: gold quality food, beautiful place,

Delicious local produce, excellent value!!

Huge variety of healthy, colourful and international vegetarian meals.
I phoned ahead (2 days in advance) to confirm dinner reservations (Omassim is also a guesthouse). I prefer gluten and lactose free, Omassim was happy to cater for these requests!
Beetroot riostto, greek salad and aubegine with amazing diping sauce were stunning - obviously made with fresh ingredients!! We ordered sweet potato wedges as a side.
Came back the next day for take away wraps for lunch - eco friendly packaging, extra points!!!

Pros: Local seasonal produce, prepared with lo, Allergies catered for, Eco friendly packaging

Cons: Phone ahead for booking, Organic wines coming
