As a hard-to-feed veggie with a long list of food intolerances travelling with a gluten-free friend, I had done a lot of research into places to eat in Malaga. This was top of my list and rightly so. We were spoilt for choice and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

We had lunch here - it's in a great location in a lane a few metres from the remains of the roman theatre. There's a great choice of traditional Andalucian food, but veggie instead of the usual bulls tails! Lovely food, great service and good value.

The turnovers and carrot burgers were delicious. There were some nice vegan options as well and even my meat eating friends loved it! I will come back to this place.

mashed swede and potato has its place - but Malaga? plus small virtually empty pastry case and scoop of salad. Dried pea soup was good as was seedy bread - industrial pate squeezed from a tube again unexpected

I am surprised by the rating of this great little place with excellent, fresh and flavourful food. It should be a solid 5! The food is very tasty and light and a welcome change from the large amounts of heavy fried traditional food we had. The soup as one of the best veggie soups |I ever had. The hummus was... More

We ate her twice on our 4 day stay. Loved the food, variety and reasonably priced. I mean it cost us more to eat at an Indian restaurant in Torremolinos, a mela which we did not enjoy at all. The service was excellent, the waiter/owner was really helpful. We ordered ice-cream; the waiter came back after taking our order and... More

Since we were travelling with a vegetarian daughter finding good and varied food which we could all enjoy was at times a challenge but we had no problems at all with this restaurant where the quality was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient and the cost very reasonable,.

Spanish food can be quite fat, often fried and very oily. I like it but when you eat out every day for a week could be too much. This place is heaven for vegetarian in Spain and who wish to eat healthy. Very tasty food, reasonably priced and in a very central location. Don't miss it

I had three meals there - vegetarian paella, spinach and cheese croquettes and again spinach and cheese croquettes. The bread they serve is excellent too - fresh, aromatic and full of grains and herbs.
