First Review by Ruby X

A reason to come back to Barcelona - Edit

When we stayed in Barcelona for 5 days, we visited this restaurant twice. Always packed with people, great atmosphere and fantastic food. We were with 4 people and have tried many different dishes on the menu and not one disappointed us. This restaurants shows you can make vegetarian food with great taste and would make a carnivore turn veggie. Don’t miss this one when visiting Barcelona and make a reservation in advance.

Pros: Great atmosphere, Fantastic food

Cons: None

Amazing food!! - Edit

This was best food I had in Spain!!!

I came here one morning and had the granola, it was delicious. I decided to come again the next night for dinner and they had a variety of vegan options, including the best vegan lasagna I've ever had!! Highly recommend this place.

Bad experience - Edit

I ordered from the menu the VEGAN salad of the day, and it came with fresh cheese, i tried because I thought it was vegan, then I saw it wasn't, I told e waitress and told me it was a mistake, they changed it and brought me another one with different cheese.. my boyfriend ate it. I was so disappointed.
It's a vegetarian restaurant so I didn't expect this confusion and I didn't enjoy my meal after all this..

Pros: Very tasty, Menú 10.50

Cons: They put cheese in my vegan salad , They did it a second time, Very dark

Good, if a bit expensive. Vegan options limited. - Edit

We had a late lunch at Teresa Carles. The vegan options are somewhat limited on the menu, and it seems that most dihes are already pre-prepared, so that replacements are not always possible. What we had was very good, though, in particular the mushrooms in brown sauce from the Teresa's specials menu. Charging 2 EUR for osmotic water and 6 EUR for a juice in a plastic bottle from the fridge was a bit much.

Pros: Food was good, open all around

Cons: Vegan choices limited, a bit expensive

*****food/beverages but only *service - Edit

The food and equally creative and healthful juices/smoothies are amazing. I enjoyed my meal.

The service was one of the worst I've experienced in 7 weeks of eating out while touring the Iberian Peninsula. The servers are doing their best but the restaurant was woefully understaffed.

I'll give them another try and revisit my review.

Pros: creative healthful food, creative healthful drinks

Cons: was understaffed--poor service

pricey but well worth it for amazingly creative food and drink - Edit

Amazing atmosphere, lovely waiters and some amazing vegan food, that is creative but also delivers on taste. Try and resist the temptation otherwise you'll end up spending but sometimes it's worth it.

Pros: lots of vegan options , creative, locally inspired

Cons: expensive

Popular lunch restaurant - Edit

A bit too loud and noisy for my taste. Due to its popularity it's always full to the brim. Love the idea with a changing menue, but it also means that there sometimes is only one vegan option, while all of them are vegan other weeks.

Perfect (unfortunately not completely vegan) - Edit

Definitely a perfect place to visit in Barcelona. Unfortunately not all dishes are vegan. However, we had a couple of vegan options and all of those were very delicious, not to say simply perfect. Friendly staff and a cozy atmosphere in short it is absolutely recommendable. I will hope to come back very soon.

absolutely delicious - Edit

I walked quite a ways to get here only to discover only part of their menu was available due to the time 6pm?). Initially I was disappointed by this and was second guessing having trekked my tired ass here after a 24 hr journey to Spain. .
Until the croquettes arrived.
Cooked to perfection
Flavor balanced to perfection
The waitress was a pleasure.
My first real tapas in Barcelona and it was delicious!
Will certainly return before my trip is over.

Cons: no outdoor seating

Terrific vegetarian resturant with lots of vegan options - Edit

Amazing vegetarian spots seems to be very popular with locals as well. We got the vegan spinach coquettes, black rice dish and portabello freak-all were fantastic. I would say those this place is a little expensive its about 13.50 for a main but id say its worth it.

Pros: Lots of vegan things and English menu.

Cons: A bit pricey

la meilleure cuisine végé de bcn - Edit

L'ambiance du restaurant est assez sombre, ce qui tranche avec Flax & Kale qui appartient au même groupe. Ici, on mange d'excellents plats préparés sur place. OK, c'est cher mais mieux vaut ne pas passer à côté. L'assiette d'aubergine (végétarien) est d'un fondant absolu: absolument divin. Certes, les proportions ne sont pas non plus énormes.

Pros: excellentissime, calme, service discret

Cons: cher, raffiné

Fine dining, best vegan croquette and sangria! Interesting vegan tuna! - Edit

We ordered 3 different vegan Tapas and probably one of the best Sangrias we had in the city (Rosé). La Bomba de Barcelonetta turned out being a delicious croquette filled with artichoke, topped with vegan mayo and a red sauce. Creamy inside and a crunchy crust, soo good... The veggie tempura had green asparagus, squash, carrots and leaks and was served with a very good spicy sauce. We ordered vegan tuna and got a platter with a little can filled with juicy vegan "fish" and some pan con tomate on the side. For dessert we had the snowflake cake which was a good solid vegan cake, but also not as special and delicate as the rest of the dishes. I would try next time the vegan millefleur or one of the other vegan desserts. The atmosphere is modern, cozy and a bit fancy (in a good way), so if you want to go out for a dinner on a special occasion, this is the place.

tasty vegan options and great service - Edit

I was impressed with the service and their kale soup. Also their desserts were great and their bread. Really pleasant inside and vegan options clearly marked on the menu, which I think were a great majority of the menu. Definitely coming back

Fresh food - Edit

English menu with vegan options clearly marked.
The food was very fresh and home cooked which is great and the vegan cakes were amazing.
I did enjoy our dinner here, however we did feel a little underwhelmed by the portion size in comparison with the price . The vegan lasagna could have been better with a side of bread or potatoes perhaps. I was disappointed the seitan burger isn't vegan.
If it wasn't for how good the cakes were I would have probably only awarded 3 starts.

Pros: Fresh

Cons: Portions could be bigger for price, Majority vegetarian menu
