Inconsistent Classic Navarro food in a vegetarian/vegan style

ORIGINAL (Lunch in 8/2022): This was an epiphany. Legacy foods in a progressive style, including Pochas and, even, a house Pacharan.

Not just novelty, really well done interpretations. Wonderful!

Just wish it was open beyond lunch.

ADDENDUM (Dinner in 6/2023): What a difference... the return to Pamplona to visit my family gave us an opportunity to try Sarasate for dinner. From beginning to end, really disappointing, other than the beer choices (which include an award-winning Gastro brew from Cuenca) and a menu that promised the kind of creativity that we experienced at lunch last year.

To begin with, walking in, you're directed to take a photo of the menu (pinned to a non descript bulletin board in the entrance) for reference in placing your order, which seemed like a pointedly "you do it" cost save measure. I've included the photo of the menu, to show what I meant by the promise of the menu; it suggested an innovative take on both traditional Navarro dishes, and/or on vegetarian/vegan foods. Exciting, either way.

My wife ordered: Borraja salteado con champiñones (sauted borrage with mushrooms), espagueti integrales con bolognese de verdura y quinta (spaghetti bolognese with vegetables and quinoa), brownie de manzana y almendra (apple and almond brownie).

The Borraja was watery, tasteless and lukewarm (if that). The spaghetti was not hot, barely had any vegetables in it. The brownie was cold, though delivered on a warm plate, very dry and not moist.

I ordered: alubias pochas de Navarra (the same classic bean dish that I'd ordered fue olunch in 2022), albóndigas de calabaza y setas con ali olí de manzana ("meatballs" of squash & mushrooms in apple alioli), vainilla helado con peras al horno con canela y miel (vanilla ice cream with baked pears with cinnamon and honey)

The Pochas were good, though not hot (most noticed because it was unseasonably cool outside & the perfect condition in which to enjoy a hot dish of Pochas). The albóndigas were good, though cold, as were the baked pears in the ice cream. Across the board, the cold foods felt like dishes that had been forgotten and lacked the full taste of the dish because of that.

Add to that service that seemed intent on a passion-less & even unwelcoming experience, and there was little positive left to motivate any discussion. We paid & left, sending emails to friends to which we'd previously praised Sarasate, warning them that the experience was not as we'd previously had

Too bad, even sad

Good food here

I had lunch here in March 2023. They have a meal of the day that costs €14.50 from Monday through Friday at lunch time. It comes with a first and second course followed by dessert. It also comes with bread and a choice of drink (I chose the wine). This is an excellent value for a good quantity of good food. For my meal I chose the garbanzos with spinach and for the second course I chose the cannelloni. The dessert I chose was the banana and chocolate crepe. All of it was delicious! Conveniently located in the middle of town.

Pros: A great value , Tasty food , Friendly service

Delicious homemade meals!

The menu included a starter (huge portion of pumpkin soup), a segundo (big portion of creamy rice mushrooms), a dessert (had watermelon since I was so full, would've also carried cakes and custard), 1/4 liter of wine, water and bread. All this for 14,5e. I would've settled and been full with half of the menu, but luckily everything was delicious

Pros: Huge portions , Homemade food

Cons: Expensive (although huge), Too much if you're not VERY hungry

Hidden gem in a city full of hanging meat

Owners are really nice and the food was tasty. Fresh ingredients and the 3 course menu is great value. Loved having a restaurant that has more than 1 or 2 dishes. Try your best to speak Spanish, it goes a long way 💕

Pros: Tasty homemade food, Nice selection of Vegan dishes, Good portion size and good value

Cons: Could have a few more vegan choices

Authentic “home” food

For a vegetarian place I feel it could expand its vegan menu and be more versatile (there were so many vegetarian options I wished were vegan!) but it’s still lovely and a great place to go in Pamplona! Obsessed with the vegan croquetas! Highly recommend them. The rest of the menu is lovely too. Cute simple place with home style foods.

Good vegan options, great value

Excellent value set menu; three courses with bread and wine for 11 euros. The food could generally be seasoned a bit more but it was interesting and imaginative. I went two days running and enjoyed both times.

Bland taste and small portions

As in the title: The restaurant is recommendable only if you are not very hungry, as the portions are very small. They are covered with a lot of sauce, but the solid food is very scarce. The dishes are elaborated, however they are lacking some flavour.

Pros: vegan labelling

Cons: very small portions, less sauce, more taste

They have a really good and affordable menu of the day. Most dishes were vegan and had lovely homemade touch. The white beans stew could've been cooked by my mum if she had been vegetarian. It made me feel like a I was a 10 years old again and I was having lunch at home.

Pros: lots of vegan choices, affordable, homemade, nice helpful staff

Cons: located in a 1st floor

On HappyCow, Facebook and Google it said it was open. We drove quite far to Pamplona to find out it was not open at 21.00 (not as said on internet). Apparently closed on evenings during the summer. It was difficult to find any vegan food in the city.

Cons: Closed during summer?

Básico pero rico

La verdad es que es la única opción vegetariana en Pamplona. En pleno centro, un menú básico pero rico. Probamos el hummus de lentejas, la fidebuá, ensalada de endivias y la crema de zanahorias. Todo vegano.

Pros: Muchas opciones veganas, En el centro de Pamplona , Buen precio

Yummy menu del dia

So relieved to find this restaurant! We had delicious lentil soup, peas and mushroom ‘fidea’ and spaghetti ‘bolognaise’ with quinoa. Great selection of desserts too. Try manazanas with chocolate. The non-veggies enjoyed it too which is a good sign.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Lots of protein, Good value

Cons: Not open for dinner!

Few vegan options in their menu(some are vegetarian but they can make them vegan). Food was home made, simple but delicious. In my opinion, the price is quite elevate for the quantity of the food.
Quick service and central location.
One of the few restaurants with vegan options open on sunday.

Pros: quick service, central location, home made food

Cons: small portions

One of few vegan options in town

Open daily for lunch with a menu to chose from. Everything is macrobiotic which means no spices so the food can taste bland. On the first floor, it is basic but the of of few only vegan option in this town so can not complain.
