Lunch visit, disappointing

We went, having read good reviews. What an odd little restaurant. It was like going back in time eating here. The menu seemed varied but in fact the dishes we sampled shared many of the same ingredients and were lacking in flavour or texture. It is worth noting that no alcohol is served. There was little or no atmosphere and... More

The menu was great. We shared a started of spaghetti with breads and vegan pesto which was beaitful. I had the curry and my partner had the sweetcorn fritters with the feta couscous substituted for something else because it wasn't vegan. The staff were extremely helpful. The desert was incredible. The chocolate carrot cake was the best vegan dessert we... More

A wonderful little restaurant serving house-made vegetarian food tucked away from the crowds of Las Ramblas and the Old City but still very much within walking distance of the popular tourist sites, shopping streets, and the historic centre.

So glad we managed to find this place. Thoroughly enjoyed the pure vegetarian food. Very friendly staff/owners, very clean. On the same block as Urgell metro station, but the sign was obscured by scaffolding. Enjoyed everything we had on the lunch menu, be adventurous and rather not try the pasta, everything else was a gastronomic delight

The menu is predominantly vegetarian but there are a few vegan options that are clearly labelled. The owner is kind and helpful. They offer only a three course option but are great about packing up any extra food that you can't finish. While not extraordinary, it is a very solid choice.

. Stylish, nice-price, authentic Middle East plant eating place, portions to satisfy. You can be healthy & well fed all at once! Located in the throbbing modernism's metropolis area.. this is the only natural option around here! Air is pure, ambiance inviting.. Lunch & dinner menu simple & staple ..8,70 euro & you will be full . .

We went there for our last night in Barcelona. After five days in Spain I was craving a proper vegetarian meal. This one had nice reviews and I thought we'd give it a try. We chose the menu for 15,30EUR. I had spaghetti as a starter, my friend the hummus. Spaghetti was fine, but nothing special. The Hummus was plenty,... More

We popped in for lunch whilst wandering the streets close to our hotel. It was cheap and friendly, but the quality of the food was poor. We started with hummus and pita bread - more hummus on a single plate than I have ever seen before, served with dry/slightly old lettuce and a single, thin pita bread. The hummus didn't... More

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
