Pricy vegan food

Good vegan and vegetarian food. Slightly pricy compared to the quality. But we would still visit again. Wide selection of drinks. Kid friendly. Fine dining.

Excellent range of vegetarian food. Enjoyed Houmous and cheese plate followed by stir fried veg in Teryaki sauce and Papardelle. It was all delicious. I enjoyed the Gava blonde ale from La Palma. The service was good and friendly and few minutes wait is what you expect for freshly cooked food. I hope to eat there again.

Canarian cuisine is great for meat and seasonal fruits and vegetables but vegetarian main courses are hard to come by. This restaurant was highly recommended to us and we are so glad we found it. The menu was varied with vegan choices available as well. The service was good. All the food is made to order, so it can't be... More

Rarely can you find such an excellent and innovative vegetarian restaurant, and in a central tourist area. The food was fresh, interesting, and well presented. Service was very good. Good to see it is very busy, and they recommend reserving a table. We will certainly be going back, even though it's an hours drive from home!

We had to wait more than 15 minutes to get our entry plates on the table. While you wait , they give you a mini basket with also a mini mini bread. Think it better before you go inside this place.

Had a lovely four course meal and beers for 67.50 euros. The vegetarian food was well executed but I felt the chef could do more to bring out the flavour in the dishes. However having enjoyed ourselves overall we intend to go back again before we leave.

This is the best vegetarian restaurant in Puerto de la Cruz, if not in the whole of the Canaries...and maybe in the world! The food is just divine, and I don't rave about anything very often. We went here three times in two weeks, and I'm missing it already. Do book in advance though, as they tend to get booked... More

We went there because of the reviews on tripadvisor and they were right: The food was amazing. We had the "Handmade indian samosas with mango and chili sauce", Tagliatelle with mushrooms (daily special) and the "Sweet potato and Almogrote Ravioli with butter, sage and orange zest", which was really perfect. The restaurant is not cheap, but worth every cent!

We recently went to this restaurant, because we saw the many good reviews. However, we should have taken more account of the few not so glowing reviews as they were much more accurate. The starters were nothing special, but actually quite nice, although very overpriced. As for the mains, however, they were - contrary to the self-professed mantra of the... More
