WOW!!! - Edit

I came here in July 2017, and loved everything, it was perfection it self, the food was amazing, and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I was in Spain with my family and am the only vegan in the family, (with my dad being the complete opposite and my mum being a sort of flexitarian) so I chose to come here and my meat eating family still say it is there favourite restaurant, it is my all-time favourite restaurant too. Thank you so much Green Spot!!

Pros: The food was incredible, So many different options, EVERYTHING!!!

Cons: I can't think of any cons!!

terrible service and mediocre food - Edit

I had a reservation and was seated right away, but it took forever to get menu and service. I ordered my food and for a place that is highly recommended by Happy Cow and others, I was disappointed in the flavors.
I also had the carrot cake for dessert and it was dry and lacking in spices.

The best green salad ever! - Edit

We found this place yesterday and we were happy that they welcomed us without having reservation, as it looked like this sort of place where reservation is a must and we were wearing shorts ;)
Generally, it was a lovely experience -> the service and the food were magic!
I decided to have a green smoothie with my food and I found it quite watery and small for the price for 6 EUR, so would not recommend that.
My main, however - green salad (despite sounding really boring ;) ) - was probably the best salad I have ever had! A perfect combination of beans, sprouts, avocado, etc...
My husband had a pizza with similar WOW effect :)
Then the deserts... We had brownie (amazing!!!) and carrot cake (great, but far too big and really heavy). So I do not recommend the carrot cake after a meal, even after salad, unless you share it.
But generally -> lovely place + great service and would gladly come again :)

Pros: Atmosphere and deco, FOOD!!!!!, Service

Cons: Pricey watery smoothie

beautiful food - Edit

Beautiful environment, well selected dishes excellently prepared and presented. It's not often you find a meal so well made that you can taste the fine balance of herbs and good quality produce. We went after a day of exercise, so we were huuungry, could have done with slightly bigger portion. Definitely going to be our regular "dinner with friends" place. Service was fantastic as my partner has a few allergies, the staff were attentive and knowledgeable about the menu.

Pros: amazing good quality food, beautiful environment , great service

Cons: portion could be a little bigger, but wasn't a bad

Beautiful restaurant and beautiful food - Edit

I had a beautiful salad and an exotic fruit platter for dessert. Though simple dishes, they were very tasty. This place has lots of vegan and raw options. It's a little fancy which I didn't realise before I went there. If I were to go again I would dress up a little.

Cons: Not all vegan

Mucha onda - Edit

El lugar es un restaurante muy moderno, con música en vivo, lo cual favorece la imagen de los restaurantes vegetarianos. La comida estaba buenísima, comimos todos platos veganos. El curry y la ensalada japonesa son, en mi opinión, los platos más ricos de los que pedimos. De postre: tarta de zanahoria. Increíble 😍

Pros: Muchas opciones veganas, y opciones gluten free y

mala experiencia con un camarero - Edit

Repetía por segunda vez por que la comida estaba buena pero no volveré nunca más. Nunca en mi vida me había encontrado con camarero tan maleducado, desde el principio su actitud fue muy agresiva. Nos sirvieron los segundos a la vez que los primeros (con lo que tuvimos que comer toda la comida fría) y al comentárselo al camarero su respuesta fue maleducada, nos faltó al respeto y se fue riendo y se puso a comentar con sus compañeros riendo y señalándonos. Al final nos fuimos sin tomar ni postres ni cafés. Experiencia muy desagradable.

Fantastic food - Edit

A really nice and elegant restaurant with a good atmosphere. It's not the cheapest food in Barcelona, but it is really good. The bean burger is my favorite and is delicious.

Loved it - Edit

Cool restaurant, delicous food, prices ok for the quality.
We had the "Bruschetta Spot" with smoked burrata and Favas, very good and refreshing with very cold topping on warm bread.
Then the black pizza and the swett potato spaghetti with Madadamia nut cream and black truffles. We loved all!

One star less as they didn't find the confirmed reservation and while just sitting at the table at 8.40pm being told that we need to leave by 10pm. It was enough time for us as we don't eat dessert. The staff in general is very fast and attentive but also very unpersonal (no "how was ut, do you need anything else...).

We would definitely go back for the food and the ambiance.

The closest thing to fine dining in Barcelona - Edit

This restaurant is a bit different from most vegetarian restaurants in Barcelona. It has modern and light interior, clearly inspired by Scandinavian design. The menue is extensive, with raw and gluten free options.

Great experience all around. - Edit

What a delightful place. Delicious and creative food. Very friendly and attentive staff. Nice decor and music. A very nice experience.
Reservations are a must, as they are usually full. But if you don't know about that,c and arrive hungry and hopeful,... ask nicely and they might make room for you at the bar. :-)

Excellent vegetarían restaurant - Edit

I really like this restaurant. It has a very good variety of veggie options, very good quality and a very nice deco.
The only think I miss is that they do not have vegan deserts, not a single option. Which I find quite unusual given the fact that they are so close to the vegan public...

Pros: Decoration, Quality of meals, Variety

Cons: Don t have vegan deserts

Just the spot - Edit

As many have already commented the decor inside the Green Spot is simply stunning, modern and chic but not in a pretentious way. Depending on where you are seated you can also see the marina. The staff are very attentive and friendly too putting you at ease straight away and most importantly the food is great. We went for lunch and ordered the yellow spot curry with black rice (€14.75) and the Sun choy bao tofu setas (€10.50), both of which were presented beautifully and tasted even better with a great depth of flavour. Some may say these prices are expensive but we thought it was value for money and will definitely return again. We also got a raspberry lemonade and apple press juice (€3.25) to wash it down, very refreshing indeed. If I did have one con, I would personally like to see a few more vegan options. In summary, Green Spot is a must to go to when you visit Barcelona but I would advise booking.

Pros: Excellent tasty food, Great decor, Friendly staff

Cons: Few more vegan options would be nice

Fantastic - Edit

Delicious, I think the food I had here is probably the best vegan food I have ever eaten. The green hemp pizza was perfection. My partner had the sweet potato tagliatelle, looked unsure of it when it arrived but after one mouthful relised it was exceptional. The flavours are incredible every mouthful was a delight. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff where friendly and effficient. Not the cheapest, but certainly worth every single cent. I haven't got a bad word for this restaurant.

Pros: Fabulous Food, Great choice for vegans, Beautiful restaurant

veggie restaurant with vegan options - Edit

I ate here on my first night in Barca as it was really close to where I was staying. It's a nice, quite upmarket restaurant and probably the poshest place I have eaten in Barcelona. The food was excellent. I had a noodle dish and though it was nothing like what I expected it was tasty and surprisingly filling. The staff were friendly too.

Fabulous - Edit

The Green Spot is one of the best vegetarian restaurants that we went to in Barcelona. It has a modern decor and a gentrified atmosphere. The food was great. We had a rice paper roll and salad as appetizers, both great. Our entrees were a sweet potato tagliatelle and a burger, again very good. Dessert was an unusual and delicious lemon and celery sherbert. The baked kaki (persimmon) and pear was less successful and less tasty. Overall, a fabulous dining experience.

Sweet Dreams are made of these - Edit

Who am I to disagree? I've travelled the world and seven seas, everybody is looking for something......and this something is The Green Spot. If I could sneak in the word showaddywaddy I would but it's just not appropriate. After a quick margarita and maybe a mojito at Rosa Negro we continued to the end of Via Laietana and crossed the road to the amazing Green Spot. Once again, we have an immediate 5 happy cow impact listing in Barcelona. Barcelona always delivers the best. As soon as you walk in its obvious a lot of money has been spent on the fittings. This is a sophisticated but non pretentious dining venue. I love the spot lighting and comfortable seating arrangements. There is both table and armchair dining. I love the decor, the furniture and I love the relaxed atmosphere. Oh yes, I also love the food. We started with a curried red pepper dip served with pitta breads, carrot and celery sticks. Delicious. For main courses you are looking at a phenomenal Asian style tempeh and noodle wok stir fry and an outlandish yellow Thai style curry served with black rice. These were both quite a sensation. A bottle of rosé wine at a fruity €14 made this a most enjoyable experience. There were a lot of items on the menu that I craved to be vegan but weren't. Hey ho. A great time was still had by all

Pros: Great location, Delicious food, Nice staff

Cons: Could be more vegan options
