great food, good service

Exciting to be finding really good vegetarian restaurants in Spain, which used to be really difficult. We had a really good feed here. Good wine list too. Not far from the centre - easy to walk to. Needed to book

I am SO GLAD I stumbled upon El Laurel when googling "best vegetarian restaurants in Salamanca." I used to live in Salamanca (albeit, 11 years ago) and I, or anyone, can tell you that Salamancans love their jamón. It can be tough to find veggie friendly places here. I was delighted to see many great reviews on Trip Advisor, so... More

I went to this vegetarian restaurant 3 times in a week for dinner. The staff was very friendly, helpful and patience. The food was good at my first two visits, but not at my third. I ordered spaghetti with mushrooms, tomato sauce and oregano from the vegan menu. The portion was very big, mixed with seems to me ready-made sauce... More

This is a wonderful restaurant with gracious service and excellent food. Four of us dined there tonight and we all thought it was the best restaurant we had eaten in after three weeks in Spain. The food is imaginative, well presented and filling. Highly recommended for both quality and price.

After some "meaty" and mostly very good castilian lunches and dinners we looked for well prepared seasonal salads and vegetables and were positively surprised to find this place. And we were not disappointed! The service was very friendly and helped us to choose among the specialities and recommended white and red wines by glass fitting very well to the tastefully... More

Great little vegetarian restaurant, it was recommended on Trip Advisor so we thought we'd give it a try. Booked at lunchtime for that evening. Modern interior, brightly decorated, and the food was delicious. Onion soup was fabulous, cannelloni and nachos were really good. The waitress/manager was run off her feet as the restaurant filled up but the service was faultless.... More

Probably the best vegetarian restaurant I have eaten at. Small restaurant big on style and flavour. The tempura vegetables and stuffed peppers were excellent. Great service, good portions and reasonable prices.

Fully booked when we first visited - but it was easy to book a table for the following night. A really diverse range of menu choices served in a really well done out restaurant. Everything tasted great and portion sizes were good. Definitely recommended. We found that there wasn't necessarily a clear distinction between starters and main dishes. So it's... More

We have eaten here on numerous occasions and we absolutely love everything about it. The food is expertly prepared and inexpensive. The ingredients are fresh and the menu shows a lot of creativity. The owners clearly love what they do and the food absolutely delicious. If you need a break from meat-oriented cuisine or just love vegetarian, this is your... More
