Amazing brunch - Edit

I´ll absolutely go once again and try their normal menu. The restaurant is also lovely, although a bit small, but that´s part of its charm!

Vegan heaven - in every sense. - Edit

This is exactly the kind of place you hope to find when strolling through the streets of a city you're visiting. Being vegan, and travelling, we all know many vegan places can be hit and miss. Some are trying to cash in on the rapidly growing vegan 'trend', others deliver well- but often at a cost.

As soon as we entered this place, we knew we found a gem. The place is small. But, having spent years living all over Japan, I'm used to- and don't mind small spaces. These guys make very good use of the small space, in fact- we felt it only added to the appeal. Tables are closely positioned but- without impeding anyone or being intrusive.

Everyone working here (that we were in contact with) was very knowledgable about being vegan, and more importantly, passionate- without being overbearing.

The food was fantastic. Nicely presented, diverse in composition, and best of all- priced very well for what you get. We loved this place, and- all points considered (atmosphere, quality of food, price point, service), this was by far our favorite vegan restaurant in Madrid- and we made a point to visit most of them during our trip. Very much recommended.

Pros: Great food quality., Superb service., Cost- amazing value for what you get.

Cons: None, really.

disappointing - Edit

It is a small and cosy place and given other reviews we had high expectations. We understand it’s busy and they need the tables back, however we felled rushed throughout. The food was not bad but not fantastic. Especially there were to many not well complimenting tastes on each plate.

Nice Place with Healthy Options - Edit

I stopped by and ordered the menu del dia today. It came with quite a lot of food for a fair price. The bread and soup were underwhelming, I’ve made much better soup of the same kind at home. However, I did really enjoy the main course and chocolate cake for dessert. I’m eager to try other vegan eateries in Madrid, and probably wouldn’t return to this one, but if you’re staying nearby it’s worth a stop in.

Pros: healthy, organic, dog-friendly

Cons: under-spiced, bland

Fantastic value and flavour. - Edit

Lovely atmosphere and delicious food. Was a set three course menu for lunch for €13.50 with two options for each course. Left feeling satisfied but not stuffed. Food was colourful with complementary textures and flavours.

Pros: Beautifully presented, Delicious well-thought out food

Cons: Someone who has a big appetite might still be a li

Platos unicos - Edit

Fuimos un día de muucho calor y nos gustó mucho. La comida es muy elaborada y sabrosa. Es un poco más caro que los demás veganos de Madrid, pero merece la pena probarlo.
Nos chocó que el agua filtrada (del grifo) no fuese grátis. Es agua, por dios.

Pros: Platos muy elaborados y exquisitos, Sitio acogedor, Trato magnifico

Cons: 2 Eur por agua filtrada, Bebidas en general caras

Muito bom! - Edit

Lugar muito simpático e atendimento que te deixa se sentindo bem acolhido. Os pratos são muito bem preparados e com ótima apresentação. As sobremesas também são ótimas, com opções vivas. Uma dica é reservar por e-mail ou mensagem, pois o local é pequeno e sempre está cheio. Vale a pena! E está em um bairro bem legal para se caminhar depois de comer.

Great food! - Edit

The restaurant is quite small and was very busy, so if you're in a group of more than 2 I'd definitely make a reservation! The food is really nice, and seems very healthy. Today's menu del dia (which costs 13.50 euro) was a cabbage & polenta salad, pasta with carrots & chickpeas and orange, banana & cinnamon cake. The staff are great here too!

Could be better service - Edit

I arrived a while after 1pm when they should have been opened for lunch menu but it was still closed even though the opening hours told something different. Had a short walk in neighborhood and came 30 min later. They were finally open. The waitress asked me if I had a reservation, I said no. The restaurant was (except one couple) completely empty yet I was seated at the bar so they could probably save the normal tables for customers with reservation... Soup and main dish was really tasty and I have nothing bad to say about the food. When I was finishing with the main dish, customers started to come. Nobody with reservation... :-) but they got the normal tables. Anytime the waitress walked around me she bumped my chair so I tried to get closer to bar, had no place for legs nor for my pregnancy belly... I thought I'll just have a dessert which was included in the menu and leave because the place I was sitting at was really uncomfortable. Unfortunately staff ignored me. One waitress took my empty plate after 10 min. After another 10 min another waitress took my glass. Then one of them looked at me the way "you are still here??!!! Why??" then I asked if I might have a dessert. She looked surprised like if it wasn't included in the menu... Got it, ate it and wanted to leave but the staff ignored me again. After 10 min I GOT UP and waited standing. Finally someone noticed. The restaurant wasn't full during my visit. I do not understand why I got such a poor place to sit and do not understand the slow service either. I give 3 stars only because of good food but honestly I wouldn't repeat my visit here...

Pros: tasty food

Cons: poor seat at the bar, slow service

Nice but not excelent - Edit

The place has a really nice atmosphere and service. Quiet and peaceful. I love the variety of drinks, from Kambucha, to water kefir and tons of fruit and vegie juices. However one of the plates we order for sharing was tasteless. I litterally had no flavor or very little.
We enjoy the cake deserts: praliné with coco and chocolate with penutbutter ! mmm... but I am not anxious to go back.

Pros: peaceful atmosphere, good service, good deserts

Cons: very elaborated but little flavor , a bit expensive

Lovely place - Edit

I've gone just once, but really liked it. Dishes afe creative, with plenty of different flavors. They have raw options too, if you are into that. Really good.

I'm kinda gluttonous, so I found the dishes with less food that the amount I usually like to eat. But that's just me, other people can find the amount more than enough.

The only con is that the place is really small, so if you want to eat here for sure, better to make a reservation in advance.

Staff is friendly too, and overall it is a highly recommended place!

Pros: Very well-balanced dishes

Cons: Small place

Breakfast - Edit

I went to this place with My friend the first morning we were in Madrid. The menu consisted of mostly homemade bread with different toppings like chocolate spread, avocado, vegan cheese and Tomato, they were all under 4€. Tjej they Also had a breakfast sandwich that came with scrambled tofu, tempeh bacon and roasted potatoes, but it was a whooping 7.50€. Me and my friend chose the homemade soyyoghurt with granola and fresh fruit and it was delicious, 4€. Many different fruits and the plating was beautiful. We also ordered lattes with rice milk (you can choose between oat, rice, soy, almond and coconut milk) and two raw cakes (6.50€/each), the plain cheesecake and a carob cake. The food was delicious and very filling and I would definitely go back If Im Evert back in Madrid, bit i eosh it was a little cheeper.

Pros: Nice staff, Free wi-fi , Delicious food

Cons: A little pricy

Creative, Organic, Vegan with a Good Vibe and Friendly Service - Edit

This cozy, quaint vegan restaurant is located in the Barrio de las letras section of Madrid. It was quite packed when I arrived starving on the Friday before Christmas. Even though they were packed and very busy and I had no reservation, the staff was extremely friendly and spoke English really well. Eventually, after a wait, they were able to accommodate me at the bar. Everyone from the hostess to the servers were super friendly. The organic and Buddhist flair reminded me of California and I felt right at home.

The food was delicious and creative. The starter consisted of a cabbage slaw with currants and was reminiscent of curry and salad. For the main dish, I chose a carrot and green bean dish with tempeh. It was savory and not sweet, but light, and accompanied by a green sauce similar to guacamole, but with a smokey/salty flavor. They offered a fermented drink, which was similar to kombucha, but less fizzy and a bit sweeter - the carrot ginger version was tasty. For my dessert, I chose the nut-free option, which was a chai muffin (moist and delicious even though I'm not a big chai fan), accompanied by espresso.

It was a lovely experience. The staff even suggested other restaurants to try on Christmas Day and in Palma de Mallorca. I highly recommend Rayen Vegano and will definitely go back when I return to Madrid.

Pros: friendly staff, creative, excellent organic food, staff spoke English
