This is a really nice place, almost family style in a cozy and quiet alley away from mass tourism. The service is friendly and personable. Limited choices of drinks but a good beer, wine, juice, and some soft drinks available. I recommend as a neat option to order several of the dishes and share at the table. The food is... More

Me and my boyfriend ate here at the start of July and I would highly recommend! My boyfriend isn’t a vegetarian so he wasn’t sure about going here but he knew I really wanted to after seeing the reviews. At the end of the holiday even he agreed that this was the best meal of the holiday, not just because... More

Was really looking forward to eating here as a vegan with out for dinner with 3 usually meat eating friends, and we were very happy. Food served tapas style meant we were able to try most of the things on the menu between us. A warm, friendly welcome and good honest food - what's not to like? I'll be back... More

All inclusive holiday... the food got a bit bland after a while, especially as Spanish hotels/restaurants don't really cater well for vegetarians. What a relief to find a veggie restaurant nearby. With much anticipation on my part we popped in for an evening meal. I'm not often lucky enough to be able to eat everything on the menu so I... More

revisited after an excellent meal last year, it didn't disappoint again. We tried several dishes between us and they were all superb. Very helpful and informative co owner on table service. I said I was converted last year and last night reinforced this. Ideally located for where we are staying in the harbour area but well worth seeking out from... More

What a treat it was! a selection of dishes which were well described on the menu and an extremely helpful waitress who Is also co owner. Sadly the restaurant was not well attended but diners who...

This restaurant was perfect for my wife (former vegetarian cook) and daughter (life long vegetarian) as it was my wife's birthday we phoned up to see if they could bake us a traditional birthday cake which Tracey duly obliged, it was lovely.

As an ardent Vegan I was excited to eat at the Booming Cactus. Unfortunately the experience as a whole was disappointing. The selection and quality of food was poor. The falafel were burnt to a crisp, the rice was sticky and hard and the curry was runny. I had a stomache all night afterwards. The truth is that I ate... More
