Good pizza - Edit

I got some takeaway pizza here on the way to meeting friends for dinner at a meat place. I thought it was great, the slice was a good size, tasted like actual pizza (if you know what I mean) and the staff were friendly too.

Pros: good food, friendly staff

Cons: can't think of any

A beast and a dog - Edit

I went to Vegetalia Raval for lunch with my family. As we were about to pay the bill and leave the restaurant a woman arrived with a very playful and jumpy dog for a beer. She started aggressively pushing the dog to the ground as s/he would not settle. She was pulling the dogs’ legs to lay him/her down. She was shouting at the dog. It was not a great scene.

As I could not stand looking at the abuse, I went over to this woman’s table and asked her to stop handling the dog in an aggressive way. After that I returned to my table.

This woman then engaged in an abusive tirade against me which included shouting across and calling me names like idiot, and crazy. She told me that I am not from Spain and so should go home. She went on and on and on which eventually got other customers involved asking her to stop. She kept asking me to come over to her table and started taking photos of me and my family. This went on for some time and she continued to aggressively handle the dog at the same time which included kneeling down, pulling the dogs’ legs from underneath him/her so that s/he would stay down on the ground. There was no way of having a two-way conversation with someone so angry so I refused to engage.

What made me write this review against Vegetalia Raval is that some of staff from the restaurant appear to know who this woman is. They came to our table and expressed their disappointment that people can’t get along. This obviously has nothing to do with people not getting along but with the fact that a woman comes to a vegetarian/ vegan restaurant and abuses her dog whilst everybody around is eating their lunch and the staff are fine with this sort of behaviour. One of the staff also tried to justify her behaviour by saying that it was the dog’s fault, that there was something wrong with the dog, and that this is her way of controlling the dog. This dog obviously needs serious training but s/he will never be calm by being pushed and pulled.

If the restaurant’s staff don’t care about animals they should at least try to pretend to do so because selling vegan food and animals being aggressively pulled and pushed by staff’s friends do not work. It’s simple as that.

As we left the restaurant this woman followed me and my family. She eventually caught up with us and continued to call me names in the middle of the street. She was very aggressive, waiving her hands at us. She also pretended to call the police but then walked away. All very baffling.

It’s a shame, really.

Pros: nice outdoor space, vegan food is ok

Super resto végé - Edit

Ce resto est excellent. Le menu était parfait, pas très raffiné mais un régal. Prix très ok. En plus l'équipe est sympa et la petite place (petit surplus pour manger en terrasse) offre une respiration lumineuse.

Best vegetarian in Raval - Edit

The best vegetarian restaurant in Raval, they have two more restaurants, one in Borne and the other one close to Ramblas.
This one has a cosy terrace, the service is very friendly, the food is wonderful, the vegetarian tapas and the daily "menu" amazing.
They have also pizzas, and great beers. Lovely health drinks, and cakes.

Pros: good value, great food , fresh ingredients

Nice and cozy - Edit

I took a menu for 11 euros and was quite surprised. Very tasty food,quite big portions and a cozy place. Nice people and a relaxing atmosphere. It's a good place to eat vegetarian if you don't want to spend too much money and try interesting versions of traditional plates. And a very tasty vegan cakes!

Pros: Not expensive, Tasty, Cozy

Cons: A lot of vegeterian , non vegan plates , quite a lot people at lunch time

very good food & very good service - Edit

If youre looking for a pretty chill laid back place to eat. this might be it.
Friendly crowd, service and amazing vegetarian and vegan food just minutes away from las ramblas in the center of barcelona, at one of the hottest spots in town.
They have a nice set lunch till 4pm for very cheap. which changes every day with several and tasty vegan options so you dont have to worry about looking for places to eat if you wanna stick to it. plus a nice brunch on the weeekends.
Found they were a bit lacking on the GF section but the staff is pretty chill and helpful. they can totally make your day if you let them do their magic. pretty nice spot at a quiet spanish plaza just brings up the feeling of a spanish town.
Great organic coffee too.
If youre looking for a place to eat nerby the center with awesome views and foods you cant miss this.

Pros: good service, tasty food, good location

Cons: more gluten free meals

unmemorable and boring - Edit

the food was nothing to remember, it stopped my hunger but I wasn't satisfied with the taste. I was hoping they would make better burgers but it just went down without leaving any pleasurable tastes in my mouth.

OK - Edit

The staff were rude as they expected us to order more, but it's only open for lunch! The paella was ok - more tasty when I squeezed the whole lemon on it. They did give us a little hummus and a few tortillas which was admittedly very tasty.

Pros: tasty hummus

Cons: rude staff, disappointing paella and bland fajitas

The same everywhere - Edit

the same vegan offer everywhere: hummus, not bad but pricery, the potatoes were nice, creamy sauce. The Green curry was really overprice, a really small side "dish" with very little rice and undercooked (if not raw) vegetable, especially the cauliflower. Expensive.

Pros: location, nice waiters

Cons: Expensive, Small portions

Para un apuro vale - Edit

A pesar de que el lugar suele tener sitio y hay variedad de platos además del menú, la comida no vale mucho la pena.
Los sabores son sosos, los platos aburridos y sin nada en especial. No te sorprende ningún sabor ni hay más "chicha" de la que uno podría cocinar en casa.
Para personas no vegeterianas da la impresión de una comida sin nada especial y pueden pensar que vegetarianos y veganos no disfrutamos de la comida.
Servicio, precio y cantidad bien.

Pros: Opcion vegana, Menú a buen precio

Cons: No es la gran cosa, No llevar a amigos no-vegetarianos

Spoilt for Choice - Edit

If you already are familiar with the Vegetalia brand then you will know what to expect here. If not, read on. The premises are quite expansive set on the ground floor of an impressive corner facade. You can do the 3-course menu of the day for €9.90 (€12.50 at night) which is excellent value. Home made burgers are popular here made from seitan, tofu, lentils and other vegetables. For some reason they are served stacked and spiked amongst toasted bread rather than a bun. I prefer buns. Other staples of the Vegetalia brand are risotto, lasagne, Paella, Fajita and stir fry Thai noodles. They also do quite a mean pizza. The vegan choice is mighty good too. No problem being a vegan here whatsoever. This place is set in an astonishingly vibrant vegetarian dining area of Barcelona with at least 7 other establishments very close by. Even if you don't want food, there is a pleasant terraced area outside for a drink in pleasant surroundings. Go and enjoy.

Pros: setting, large range, friendly

Cons: not the most imaginative
