Relaxing atmosphere - Edit

Sat at an outside table for wine and olives - no meals as such - and were made to feel very welcome. The olives were marinated with paprika, fresh and fruity and only a little salty, much better than the straight-from-a-jar you might expect.

Took our time and at no point did we feel rushed to vacate a prime table at peak time. Great service! So much that we abandoned our plan to eat elsewhere and ordered the mixed starters to share. Very nice mix of tasty items and not just "the usual suspects". Would have ordered more except it was so hot and we didn't have much appetite.

Pros: Relaxed atmosphere even though it was busy, Best olives I've eaten in a long time, Clean and well maintained premises

Cons: Tables a little close together so although there w

eat outside in the sunshine - Edit

Vegan/ vegetarian restaurant with some Vegetalia branded products for sale (very few). We had the starter plate for 2 which we enjoyed. Staff spoke some English and were very friendly. With a glass of wine and sunshine this was a great find in the old city.

Pros: Mostly vegan, in a sunny square, eat outside, serves wine

Cons: none really.

Vegan friendly - Edit

Vegetarian restaurant with vegan options clearly marked on the menu which is translated into English.
We had the vegan sharing patter for starters which was so good! I then had the green Thai curry whilst my partner had the vegan paella. Mine was nice but not outstanding and the paella portion was a little small.
It was lovely to sit outside in the square and eat lunch.

Nice vegan lunch options - Edit

I really enjoyed the vegan paella here. It felt a bit pricey to me and also the serve was not huge but getting vegan versions of some traditional spanish food in such a great atmosphere (the restaurant is located at a very nice and comparably calm square) is a big plus!

Pros: Godd food, nice location

Para mi sorpresa - Edit

Hemos cenado aquí el día Martes 24 con unos familiares y amigos ya que había un happening, claro que fue su idea y no la mía pues no soy vegetariano.
Tres cosas me sorprendieron. La cantidad de gente dentro y fuera del restaurante teniendo en cuenta que la calle estaba vacía, la comida por su sabor y las raciones suculentas como los nachos completos y el plato con seitan y setas que sirven y por supuesto la buena actitud de los camareros y los barman siempre sonriendo y dinamicos pese al movimiento de ese día. Por seguro que volveré

Pros: tamaño de las porciones, precio calidad, buen servicio y buen rollo

Pros: quality, own veggies

Good! - Edit

Even if I didnt liked the burger; the nachos, the appetizer and the desert were awesome! The staff was friendly and I would go back there anytime. We didn't wait for a table and the service was fast. It worth a try!

Pros: Food, Staff

Cons: Small place

Traditional Spanish food, the vegan way! - Edit

Being able to eat a paëlla or a "crema catalana" is just great!
Portions are big and the food is really good.
They also offer plenty of vegan cakes to eat in or take away.

Pros: Location, Traditional Spanish food

So So - Edit

We came across this place on our ramblings through Barcelona. The excitement was great, but the food and the service were mediocre. Too bad, the waiters almost make me feel I needed to apologize for asking some questions regarding the menu. The food was very underwhelming.

Pros: Cozy interior

Cons: Mediocre food, Unfriendly service

Good vegetarian restaurant - Edit

The place is very pretty and the staff is quite friendly, although the service can be a little bit slow. Overall, it's a good vegetarian restaurant with a reasonable amount of vegan options. The food its tasty but nothing extraordinary. Terrace service is charged +10%.

Pros: Friendly staff, Nice ambiance, Big portions

Cons: No air conditioning, Food is nothing special, Terrace charged +10%

Below average food, very few vegan options - Edit

Medium price, low quality. Unfortunately reflects this region's tendency of not putting much effort into actual quality. The concept is good, but it's quite telling that the tastiest item on the menu, the hummus, is probably something they buy rather than make themselves. Very few vegan options, and many dishes with animal products such as cheese and cream. don't recommend it.

terrible rude staff/manager - Edit

I've been to other vegetalia locations, but this one time after time i visit, I feel like the manager is so rude, he stares unwelcoming and talks to you like you are a peasant. I would never eat there, but occasionally stop by for a juice or a smoothly, it's the same story every time. Must suck to work there! Choose another place to eat If you don't want to get harassed. Awful service.
