Travel the world in food.

I suspend my vegetarian ways while traveling, and in Spain, that probably preserved my sanity (meat and seafood are hard to avoid). But I could not resist the relative novelty of a vegan restaurant with a long waiting list. Be sure to bring cash - they did not accept credit card. Luckily you won't... read more

Thrilled to find a place where I could eat everything on the menu. Marisol handles the front of the house (make sure you put your name on the list as they don't take reservations), waits on you and busses the tables. Worth the wait. Do yourself a favor and don't leave once you are on the list. Tables may clear... More

Very limited opening times lunchtimes only Mon to Fri. Quite nice eclectic wholesome veggie cuisine a nice change if you've been eating Castillian food all week. Wouldn't recommend the crema Catalana however which had a weird texture and looked greenish (I suspect made with agar agar) also when we mentioned this rather an arrogant know it all waitress.I've had more...

We went there at the beginning of January, the place had recently reopened after a long winter break. We arrived at 15:00 (average Spanish lunch time) and, since all tables were taken, we cued with the other people waiting behind the door. Nobody received us or told us anything about tables' availability. After 10 minutes of pointless waiting, we stopped... More

In peak tourist season, you need to be standing at the entrance of this restaurant by 1.20 to ensure a seat. It is very popular with both tourists and locals, because of the fantastic variety of food and the amazing value - 4 courses for 10 Euros with bread and wine included! We came here with friends who are not... More

If ever in Burgos, go and treat yourself at this little restaurant...being a Vegan in Spain is not alway easy...but this was my saving grace on the Camino..i asked once if the food contained any animal products, and the waiter/owner promised me that the food is safe..we had a 4 course meal with smiles on our faces...needless to say, on...

Although not open in the evenings, this restaurant serves up EXCELLENT & well-presented vegan meals at a very reasonable price. I had one of the best meals I've ever had - and it would appeal to any non-vegans/ non-vegetarians who want a different eating experience.

Fair price, great products, incredible plates... The menu changes often. Usually the recipes are from all over the world. This couple travel a lot and you can taste in the restaurant. Who needs more? A MUST-EAT in Burgos!

The price is very cheap..10€ for 4 courses... but the food.. Tasteless, and no texture, overcooked. I would rather have 2 courses that had power then 4 with none. Old school vegetarian, both in food and decoration of the restaurant.
