Great place !!!

Great restaurant with a lot of Vegan options.
We had the Jerusalem Hummus and they put all the toppings on the side as we asked for, it was very good, the patatas Bravas (again with the sauce on the side were great well done and the sauce is wonderful (a bit picante).
We also had the Nuggets and the mushroom croquette and they both was good.
for main course we had the Pad Thai and the puff pastry and they were very very good.

Plats originals i bons

Al Teresa Carles tenen un menú i una carta de les que es poden triar múltiples opcions a l'hora de dinar. El lloc és ample, amb un fil musical agradable i les racions dels plats són molt correctes. El 'cachopo' de la carta és molt recomanable, molt bo i complert. El servei és atent. Repetirem segur.😉

Pros: La varietat d'opcions veganes, L'amplitud de l'espai , Els plats elaborats

Original Dec 2022:
Although quite expensive, a dinner at this place is worth every penny! It was definitively one of the best vegan meals I had lately.

Update Aug 2023:
Our last visit at this place was somewhat deceptioning. The menu changed, and although it is not as pricy anymore, the quality went somewhat down. It is still a great place, however not as good as it used to be.

Vegetarian Classic in Catalunya

My husband and I ate at Teresa Carles in Barcelona many years ago, and we were eager to try this, the second location in Lleida, with our children. After a day of hiking up Montserrat to the Monastery and a long drive, we famished vegetarians were thrilled to be at this restaurant offering such delicious dishes and scrumptuous smoothies. We had a reservation for 20:00, though it turned out to be unnecessary as there were plenty of tables. There are oh so many options to choose from on the a la carte menu. The back of the menu had a touching tribute to the founder Teresa's husband Ramon, recently deceased, and an inspiring quote from him: "Without inner peace, outer peace is utterly impossible. Those of us who embrace a plant-based diet are more at peace with ourselves, with the land we inhabit, and with the rest of the living beings we share this marvelous planet with."

We chose to have kale chips and plant-based roasted 'chicken' croquettes for our "To Nibble," and my husband was blown away as to the authentic taste of the croquette that reminded him of his childhood. From the "Starters" we ordered the homemade corn nachos. We have eaten nachos at many vegetarian and vegan restaurants in NYC, though these were the *absolute best* due to the vegan cheese and mock chorizo. For "Main Courses" we ordered and shared the paella parellada with plant-based 'calamari' and 'scallops', double smashed plant-based burger with homemade fries, wholegrain spaghetti with pistachio pesto and an entire hunk of mozarella cheese on top, and scrambled eggs with potatoes and plant-based 'bacon' and 'chorizo'. For the last dish, the menu said scrambled eggs, though they actually were fried eggs, so my husband was a bit disappointed. For drinks we ordered the Berlin and Molokai smoothies. We had to take our "Desserts" to go as we were in Lleida to attend an outdoor concert. My kids chose the two texture chocolate cake and I chose the white chocolate cake with rhubarb and strawberry jam and wild berries, which we had the next day and were absolutely delectable. This was a memorable meal in a gem of a vegetarian restaurant on an epic day that we will not soon forget.

Fantastic Catalan vegan food

After a long drive through France and such awful vegan options it was a delight to be taken here by friends from Lleida. As a long term vegan from the eighties it’s a struggle to make a choice when there’s a big vegan menu. Felt like every dish was a masterpiece!!! It was very busy by 2pm so you should consider booking.

Pros: So many options for each course, Authentic but cruelty free Catalan experience , Friendly, English-speaking staff

El local es precioso, muy buen ambiente, y el personal un trato inmejorable, super amable.
La comida una pasada, cené una ensalada césar vegana, muy rica, y probé las croquetas te alcachofa y queso, brutales.
De postre el pie de limón me encantó, aunque es más contundente de lo que esperaba.

Pros: La mayoría de las opciones son veganas

Cons: No es barato, pero merece la pena

I went there last year and it was great. Nice staff and good food. I tried to go there there yesterday and was met with total rudeness. I rang ahead and a man told me it would open at 8 pm. My mother walked in at 8 and a man told her it opens at 9. So I went in and my Spanish was a bit slow so he barked "Catalan o Espanol vale!" I explained I was told it was opening at 8. He grumpily replied about some problem and that to come back at 8 30. We decided to go else where. Not worth the hassle of being barked at.

Pros: Big , Central

Cons: Rude

El único pero que se le puede poner es el precio, pero pasa a un segundo plano después de degustar sus platos. Cocina vegetariana y vegana muy imaginativa, sabrosa y de calidad. Nos encantó el local de Barcelona y este no tiene nada que envidiarle. Siempre salimos del Teresa Carles encantados. Muy recomendable. El staff muy bueno.

Pros: Cocina sabrosa y con cariño. , Muchas opciones veganas. , El servicio excelente.

Cons: Ligeramente caro, aunque vale la pena.

Ni barato, ni staff amigable pero un paraíso vegano

No es barato, ni el staff es demasiado amigable pero es un verdadero paraíso para cualquier vegano desesperado por comer decentemente en este desierto vegano que es Lerida. Docenas de opciones, novedades frecuentes, veganización de platos típicos, postres y todo perfectamente etiquetado ( aunque con letra muyyy chica).

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Frequent new dishes , Creative dishes

Cons: Expensive, No lunch

Muy buen restaurante vegetariano

Un restaurante muy acogedor y bonito. El servicio, inmejorable y rápido. La comida está deliciosa y es todo casero, se nota. Ir a un restaurante y poder comer toda o casi toda la carta (casi todo se puede veganizar) es increíble. La kombucha de Flax and Kale esta riquísima.

One of the best meals ever!

We were surprised by the variety of vegan food they offer. About 70% is 100% vegan. I had an avocado-mango tartare as a starter, which was great! Very fresh, probably a green mango, which gave it the right sourness, excellent. The main was a melanzane: amazed by the taste and structure of the vega cheese. The desert was heaven! A perfect home-made cocos yoghurt (which normally is not my favourite) topped with spiced cherries and a crumble at the bottom. Really perfect for a very reasonable price. And… the service was very friendly.

Being vegan in Lleida

This is the original roots of Teresa Carles restaurant of Barcelona. So sure you will have a great experience eating vegan dishes here. I went in 2018 and I real ate like a King. "Fideua"is my favourite dish here. And please taste their "all-i-oli" and some "pa amb tomaquet" a Catalan traditional food, and now vegan food!

The food here really is another level. A lot of comments about price on here, yes evening meals are perhaps slightly high but it is an upmarket resteraunt with a good reputation in spain. They do have a daily lunch menu which comsists of starter, main, dessert, bread and drink (beer, wine, water etc) all for €15 euros - there are always more vegan than veggie options and all sorts of plates, i cant remember the last time ive been there for lunch and not enjoyed everything - you wont leave hungry!. On top of this they also use quality local and seasonal ingredients

Pros: Seasonal, quality, local ingredients
