Very popular and for good reason

We arrived for lunch. The restaurant was busy and had a great atmosphere. The food was top, top quality, it arrived promptly and the staff were very friendly. There is a comprehensive and well-labelled menu that will please vegetarians and vegans alike. We enjoyed traditional spanish food alongside a wok de verduras.
We cannot recommended this place more highly. If you're staying in Málaga{ you must visit this impressive establishment.

I don’t often give bad reviews but I have no choice. I walked in and they were awkward when I said I didn’t have a reservation. But the restaurant was half empty so it didn’t look like I needed one. They took ages to take my order and when they did, they got it wrong and brought a dish with milk and eggs in it. The waitress looked at me like she was annoyed with me. When my meal finally came, it was just four thin slices of tofu with potato wedges and a tiny amount of salad. But it was all drowning in tasteless oil. Then they took ages to get the bill. I paid €14 for this and a Coca Cola. I will never go back there.

Cons: Rude staff, Terrible food, Long waiting time

Good menu of the day

I'm surprised at some of the reviews saying there aren't enough vegan options, from the menu I would say maybe 2 of 3 dishes are vegan.
They offer a good mix of dishes, from veganized burgers to wholesome food. There is an offer for menu of the day for about 10 eur, or 5-6 eur for one dish, which is great value! Tasty as well!

Cocina tradicional vegetariana.

Fui acompañado a este restaurante "de rebote" porque al que planeábamos ir estaba cerrado, pero qué suerte la nuestra haber acabado en El Calafate. El trato de la camarera que nos atendió fue maravilloso, la comida fue magnífica y en cantidades enormes. Para referencia: las 2 personas que fuimos nos pedimos el menú de 14 euros y no tuvimos narices a acabarnos el segundo plato. El salmorejo, la crema de calabacín y el cuscús están buenísimos. Volveré, definitivamente.

Pros: Muchas opciones "tradicionales", Los postres son caseros, Es muy barato

Cons: Algo lejos del centro de la ciudad

Dissapointing lunch

If you are looking for a filling school lunch, fine, but for a restaurant meal this was plain terrible. Something they called a thai curry was a yellow sauce with over boiled zucchini and carrot, no spices of any type, served with the cheapest white rice one could find in a supermarket. A celery salad included like five tiny pieces of celery and dyed black olives (in a leading olive country!!) together with icebergs salad. The only vegan desert option was rice pudding which was edible but no, really no. Other people's portions didn't look any better. The waiter was great, also with great English, but really just not worth going there. Lunch was 9,90€.

Pros: Friendly service

Cons: Terrible food, Small portions, Lame interior

Vegan options poor

Was disappointed by the vegan choices. Ordered tofu steaks and the food wasn’t very tasty at all. Tofu was not marinated, tasted bad. Feel I could have cooked something better at home. However, service was great and nice atmosphere.

A hidden gem in Malaga!

I stumbled across this place as I was waiting for keys to my holiday flat and I'm SO glad I did. They have a set lunch menu for €9.90 with 4 or 5 choices for each course, vegetarian and vegan (at least on the day that I went). The starter salad was absolutely gigantic, it could have been the main course on it's own. And it was delicious, one of the best salads I've ever had. Generally speaking, the food was next-level delicious, so much more than I would have expected for the price. I also really enjoyed the vegan rice pudding for dessert, a nice light and refreshing finish to the meal. I highly recommend seeking this place out. It's in a small alleyway not far from the central market. My favourite meal in Malaga by far!

Pros: Incredible food , Very reasonably priced

Cons: none

Excellent meal, nice setting, good value

The set menu is now 12.50 Euros, but still good value. I had a bean casserole to start, followed by Bulgar Risotto and finished with Rice Pudding. All Vegan.
2.50 for a glass of decent red Tempranillo.

Good service. Friendly staff and highly recommended.

Pros: Good value set meal, Vegan options, good location

Cons: not fully vegan

Many choices and friendly staff

There are tons of yummy vegan options including many vegetarian ones which can be veganized. There is an array of different meals to choose from including a daily menu for a good prize. Many meals can by customised, including most of the daily menu. Many things are very "special" and new to most people making it very exciting to see what you get. The staff is also really helpful and nice!

Pros: Includes an allergy list, Easily customisable dishes and menus, Large portions (for 3 course menu)

Cons: Can be loud due to blenders and such

Good Vegan Options

We went for an evening meal here last week. The menu is mainly all vegan and the dishes that we had were really good. It's very popular even on a Tuesday evening so maybe worth booking. The staff were very friendly and helpful and if you struggle with Spanish there are English language menus.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Resonably priced
