Would recommend this restaurant to any vegetarians looking for something different. Some dishes that we hadn't seen before and the quality and taste of the food was excellent. Homely atmosphere and good and friendly service.

This isn't Macdonalds or a chain restaurant. Expect something different and some excellent Vegetarian food. We love it.

So this is a difficult review to write. It's somewhat clear the restaurant is run rather chaotically. However the front of house man, Tony, is absolutely brilliant. He totally makes the place. At 5:45pm I booked a specific table for my partner for dinner at 7.pm. We arrived at 6:50pm to find people sat at the table I'd booked. Tony... More

Really enjoyed our second visit to this rustic restaurant. Menu has not changed - enjoyed all the tapas dishes and the very reasonable bottle of wine. Shared a very rich choc. and lime tart - delicious!

This is apparently a typical vegetarian restaurant, according to the vegetarian in our party. It has the warm atmosphere of a dark living room.

Myself and my wife decided , somewhat against my better judgement - I being the vegetarian - to dine here recently. It was a strange experience to say the least. The menu is simple and offers a variety of different dishes. The food comes all at the same time - what would be classified as starters in most restaurants comes... More

We were so excited to come here and travelled from Arrecife as the reviews looked wonderful.... The restaurant itself is a lovely little authentic place with a nice romantic ambiance (it's clearly a place for couples to go for dinner). Candle lit table, comfy wooden chairs and a lovely bookcase with books added to the setting. Unfortunately, we were told... More

Great to find a nice vegetarian restaurant here in Puerta de la Carmen. Just a few tables, and a simple decor, but very cosy and laid back. And then the food was great! Recommend the roti and the moussaka.
