Had lunch here twice over a few days and were impressed with the relaxing atmosphere in this large restaurant. Because of the restaurant name we expected it to be a bit hippyish - but it wasnt. Tasteful decor and tasty food. We had the burger and a couple of pasta dishes which were all great. Definitely worth hunting this place... More

We were alone for most of the time in this cool sanctuary away from the noise of the persistent souvenir vendors. We were courteously greeted and served and advised on the menu and wines. A touch more expensive than many other restaurants in Toledo but I feel it was worth paying that little bit extra

After reading positive reviews we decided to try this restaurant for a special dinner. We entered the nicely decorated basement venue and were "greeted" by a pouting person who complained of having a bad day and begrudgingly showed us to a table in the empty restaurant--this person was also our server who disappeared most of the time and offered a...

Good vegan food after eating so much typical Spanish food. Servers of restaurants in Madrid are a lot lot friendlier. Toledo is saturated with vendors of souvenir and restaurant owners that are more interested in your money than providing good service or products. Enough said.

We drove through Spain and stopped off at Toledo. Having walked around for hours in that beautiful city we were looking forward to a nice meal and I'd read the fab reviews of this restaurant on TA and thought it was worth a visit. How wrong I was. We were the first customers for the evening sitting and although the... More

My wife and I visited Toledo around Christmas, and after extensive exploration of this delightful city on foot, headed out to Madre Tierra for lunch, having worked up a serious appetite. It is slightly hard to locate (tucked away in a small lane) but behind those doors is a beautiful setting with deeply soothing music and dim lighting. The service... More

It's an inside seating only restaurant and it's a little hard to find but definately worth it. The food we had was... More

Saw the sign for the restaurant as I was passing in the street, and being of that strange species "vegetarian" in Spain I went back to try it out at the next meal time. The staff member out in the restaurant was excellent: friendly, unobtrusive, helpful and the service was professional and prompt. The bread and the little amuse bouche... More

Lovely restaurant. The food was great and the owner was really accommodating. I had lots of special requests and he made them all possible with a smile.
