Great veggie food in Salamanca

I recently dined at El Laurel with two friends for dinner. It's so unusual to find such a good vegetarian restaurant in Salamanca, especially as the city is dominated by meat options.

Couldn't believe my eyes when I literally stumbled on this gem on the edge of the old city. It was too early for dinner but we decided to have early dinner. It is difficult at best to get vegetarian food in Spain and El Laurel just blew us away! The food was sensational, the service outstanding, the wine top shelf... More

It was a good meal, big servings but everything was made out of cheese. Not the most healthiest vegetarian option nor a good option for lactose intolerant people. Great croquettes though!

After trying a superb vegetarian restaurant in Lerida we asked our Salamanca hotel to recommend a vegetarian restaurant. Dinner is not served until 21h00. The decor is fresh, the waitress extremely efficient and friendly but the menu was lacklustre. My husband's deep fried Camembert was lukewarm and I think my Provençal lasagne (which contained a high percentage of mushrooms) had... More

Great food and friendly staff. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived at about 15:30. Quick service, and finally real vegetarian food; hard to find in Salamanca! Entrees (lunch) cost from 7-10€. Dessert 3.50€. There was a menu option for 25€ I would definitely eat here again.

We arrived at this restaurant when it opened to be told there were no tables free. We were disappointed as we were only in Salamanca one night. The waitress/owner? then agreed to fit us in at 3.30 despite the fact they were obviously really busy. I am so pleased we got in - we had the most delicious meal, everything... More

In a city where pork products feature on every menu this place is a delight. The 10.50 Euro three course set menu provides a good choice of dishes including excellent salads, soups, rice dishes, vegetables and deserts all well presented and generous and including a glass of organic wine. The service is quiet and efficient. We were in Salamanca for... More

If, like me, you get tied of eating pork each and every day while in Salamanca, do head here. The place is in contest with the life on the streets. While really loud outside, inside is calm with little noise and while calm walls. It's not cheep but portions are generous. Guacamole was superb but oven dishes had to much... More
