We found this restaurant by accident when we were walking in the area. The food they make is one of the best I have ever had. Organic, fresh, great plate designs, most of delicious and great wine to match. Also amazing deserts. Definitely going back there if I am ever in the island again.

The service here is excellent and the food is exquisite! We recommend the goats cheese nests with honey and thyme, the hummus with Canadian coriander, the mixed salad with nuts and the middle eastern style couscous, washed down with a bottle of organic wine and topped off with the organic vegan brownie - everything was delicious! Make sure to reserve... More

This was by far the best restaurant we went to while in Tenerife. Although I am vegetarian my fiance is not, he enjoyed his meal very much. I loved all of the choice there was for me and thought it was delicious. The service was very good staff friendly. Could not fault it!

We have just returned from a week holiday in Puerto de la Cruz where we ate here 3 times! We had the vegan thai main, vegan veg and tofu stir fry main and vegan korma main. All were absolutely delicious and very fresh tasting and made such a nice change from pasta and pizza with just tomato sauce! The meals... More

I ate here with my husband, the restaurant is small and friendly, the service isn't fast but it's relaxed. The food is amazing! We had samosas and falafel for starters, my husband had a tofu korma and I had the daily tagliatelle which was pumpkin and leek, both were delicious. We very rarely have dessert but did here, a vegan... More

Me and my boyfriend tossed a coin as it was a choice between here and the place across the road. I'm so glad this one won! Neither of us are vegetarian but we thoroughly enjoyed the dishes we ate here. The flavours were amazing and everything was fresh and well prepared. The service was fantastic too and we were well...

We walked past this restaurant one lunch time and it looked busy so came back in the evening, we're not disappointed. Neither of us are vegetarian, but the food was very good and a nice variety from the usual Spanish resort type restaurants in the town. Oh, and as a bonus they had some nice ale, at a much more...

Visited this place after 19 years of being vegetarian and having never been to an exclusive vegetarian restaurant. The starter was to die for, an assembly of croquettes (3 flavours) and each of them was as good as the next. The mains were equally as good and packed full of taste. Personally I don't think the desserts lived up to... More

A great place to eat if you're vegan, yes the service may be a little slow if you're used to fast food but at least you're not eating something bunged in the microwave for 30 seconds. I thought the wait was acceptable personally. The owners must have read the previous reviews as there was no bread upon arrival and we... More
