We love this quirky little veggie restaurant. It's a bit of a walk away from the main stretch but worth it. Really tasty food and good portions. We'll be back before the end of our hols.

Visited this restaurant in September whilst on holiday as it is the only vegan / vegetarian restaurant on the island and had great reviews / recommended by partners colleague. Due to chef working in Grassroots Glasgow I had great expectations and was sadly let down. Ordered chilli, slow cooked green beans, red salad and pitta bread to share, the chilli... More

STILL OPEN and running as normal - thank you for your kind words, I just wanted to reassure our customers that Blooming Cactus is open and running as normal. We open at 6pm and during the summer the kitchen closes at 9.30. We are closed on Mondays. Blooming Cactus is up for sale, but I will only sell to someone... More

When ever I travel with my parents, I like to go with them to local vegetarian places, and most of the time it ends up being a little bit disappointing. However, my parents thanked me afterwards for finding this place. The food was very delicious, the owners were very friendly, and it was a generally great trip. I would advise... More

I was delighted with this place and it's tapas style dinning experience. I am a very proud and happy carnivore who enjoys my veg just as much as my meat. This was refreshingly different from all the other meals we have had in Puerto del Carmen and incredibly tasty. Don't let the small menu disparage you as portions are large... More

We attempted to eat here last Saturday after managing to find it but it was closed. It looked like it had been shut for a while. Quite disappointed as we were looking forward to a meat free meal.

NOT CLOSED - we open at 6pm Tuesday - Sunday and during the summer the kitchen closes at 9.30pm as do most of the restaurants in that area of Puerto del Carmen. It seems rather unfair to give us a 'terrible' review without having visited or knowing the facts. Why bother? More

We ate dinner here on a slow evening in mid-August and were the only people there. We were told this isn't the busiest time of year for tourism. We ordered three dishes including hummus with pita bread, moussaka, and green beans in tomato sauce. Everything was tasty especially the hummus although the portion was small. The pita bread was also... More

As a regular visitor to Lanzarote I always worry that places that have been great in the past will have gone down hill. Not Blooming Cactus, lovely food in relaxed surroundings. Even persuaded my nephew to come along and he couldn't believe he liked veggie food! Could be a convert! See you next time
