Great vegetarian Spanish food

Lovely little place with outside seating, lots of options for vegetarian and vegan tapas and main dishes. Uses a variety of meat substitutes in the dishes and all at reasonable prices.

Pros: Lots of options for vegans and vegetarians, Great Spanish food

Try the red velvet cake :D

REeally good vegan paella, and the vegan meatballs too. But the red velvet cake was absolutely the best thing we tried :D

Decent but not the best

I tried vegan empanadas and pizza. It wasn't bad, but you can find better in Barcelona for sure. Not bad but not the first place I would choose.

Vegan Paella

As a vegan visiting Barcelona, I finally found vegan paella! It was very nice with artichokes, peppers and faux meat included. Also enjoyed sangria, vegan empanadas and vegan Catalan custard.

Pricey, got spot and good food

I've been eating here multiple times and I have never been disappointed in the food. The staff is friendly and can help you in English. The only reason for giving four stars instead of five is that it feels a bit pricey for what you get in food sizes. I recommend every vegan to check this place out tho.

Pros: Big variety of food, English speaking staff , Great outdoor seating on placa tripi

Cons: Portion size, Price

Very meh

I don't really like the vegetalia franchise. They have quite a few vegan options but everything is pretty underwhelming. The taste is not awesome and the servings are rather scarce for the price. You can find much better food in other vegetarian restaurants in town...

Pros: Quite a few vegan options

Cons: Small servings, Expensive, Not very tasty

I feel a bit bad writing this review considering that this restaurant has a lot of vegan options and it seems like they are really put effort into it. Still, I had the vegan pizza and the cheese tasted a bit odd, it wasn’t bad put not tasty as well. Also, the Seitan had no taste at all and was rather disappointing. To be honest, I wouldn’t order a pizza there a second time and if this was the first vegan pizza I ever ate I would be put off. But on the other hand, they have vegan cocktails and the pina colada’s was the best vegan cocktail I ever had, rich and creamy, almost like a dessert!

Mal sitio para gente vegana

Se nota que es una cadena donde el propietario no deve ser ni vegano ni vejetariano.

El queso horrible y el ramen savia mal también.

Es el típico restaurante que hace creer a los especistas que comer vegano save mal no vallais.

La cocina es enana.

Pros: Nada

Cons: Todo

Uma boa paella

O restaurante é muito agradável e conta com um menu bem interessante de opções vegetarianas, veganas e sem glúten. 

O atendimento foi bom, eficiente e a cerveja estava bem gelada, uma delícia! 

Pedimos de entrada Nachos e como prato principal, a Paella Vegetariana. Tínhamos muita curiosidade sobre o prato e realmente agradou muito!

Very nice hummous

Very nice hummous. Weak coffee. Very slow to bring la cuenta. A fly on every outside table suggests a disinfecting wipe might be a good idea between customers.

Pros: Great hummous

Cons: Weak coffee.

The vegan cheese on the pizza was probably the best I had ever tried.

The area was pretty nice to sit outside.

Nice place for a meal

Veggie restaurant with vegan options well marked. We got the premium burger, heura (Spanish vegan chicken), and veggie paella, with a pitcher of sangria. Heura was excellent - just a tad salty. Paella was a generous portion and very yummy. Burger also very good. Servers were friendly. A nice veggie respite in a very touristy area.

Pros: Vegan options well marked

Great food and nice place

Really great central location in the Gothic Quarter with ample outdoor seating- even to a play area for kids.
The food was delivered quickly by friendly staff and was delicious- very filling.

Note that the burgers don’t say they come with patatas on the menu, but they do. We ordered some on the side but i wasn’t complaining- the more the better!

Pros: Good food, Friendly staff, Outdoor seating

Cons: Some meat options
