This vegetarian eatery offers unique interesting dishes. The theme is tapas-style Greek food, and the menu ranges from tasty eggplant feta cheese appetizers to tomato bean chili to vegetarian moussaka. Great for splitting among a few people. Actually ate here twice because of the creative menu! Definitely check it out!

My friend & I visited this fab place on our last night, we sought it out after reading a trip advisor review. We were not disappointed-the food was delicious so fresh, great service & fab music in the background. Lovely to meet Theresa too & chat about food, music scene in Glasgow & solving various problems! Will definitely be back,... More

A Sunday night visit, the owner is off on Sunday's so maybe my review is not a true review as she is not present. A bottle of house red very expensive, the food ok, the rice very over cooked( microwaved) by the temperature, not good. The inside of the restaurant could do with some more lighting. To only have one... More

We are a vegetarian restaurant NOT a vegan restaurant... although 50% of menu is vegan I want to thank you for your review as it allows me to address an issue which I am finding increasingly frustrating, namely the perception that vegetarian restaurants should be a lot cheaper than ‘normal’ restaurants. The cost of dishes in any restaurant is determined... More

Everything about this restaurant gets either 1 star, or 5 stars. We arrived, and after about 10 min we still didn't have menus, so we asked, and were told the printer is broken and they only have 7 copies of the menu and other guests have them all already so we'll need to wait. On the other hand, they were... More

Ate here with my husband last night, the first night of our holiday. Everything we chose was delicious and we particularly liked the red salad and the saganaki. The service was both excellent and friendly. It's lovely to find such a good vegetarian restaurant while on holiday. We will return and would have no hesitation in recommending.

Visited the Blooming Cactus with my daughter on the first night of our holiday last week, as we were staying just round the corner. Lovely atmosphere and the food and service were excellent. We also enjoyed a good chat with the owner. Will definitely return if back on Lanzarote.

The food is gr8 with a nice ambiance...The dinner has good quantity..although a bit pricey and with limited menu...I would definitely recommend this place if you are a vegetarian.. They are open only for dinner so plan your visit accordingly

Located in the old town not far from the harbour. Decent healthy vegetarian food with a good selection for vegans. Not that easy to find but well worth the effort

Absolutely lovely from beginning to end - especially the VEGAN Chocolate cake for dessert (Cannot believe that was vegan - was so rich, absolutely divine!). My girlfriend who was with me isn't even vegetarian, but absolutely loved everything that was put in front of us. Will definitely be putting this on our list of 'must visit' the next time we...
