El Laurel is a welcoming place, with an interesting menu and a very kind woman working when I was there. I arrived for lunch to find that every table was reserved but I was invited to take one if I could be finished with 75 minutes. The guacamole, salad and cheese cake are all delicious, carefully prepared and fresh. I... More

A classy little restaurant, not far from the cathedral. The menu of the day only 10,50 with plenty of choice, excellent quality! Very busy, it was completely full but luckily I could reserve a table a bit later in the day.

Great variety and well priced set menu at 10.50 euros for three courses, drink and bread. Very professional and efficient service and quiet and calm atmosphere: something difficult to find here in Spain ;)!

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious, healthy lunch in El Laurel today. The servings are generous. They also serve olives and fresh wholemeal bread as an apperitive. We enjoyed the tofu with orange sauce and vegetable paella and then the risotto with pumpkin and zucchini. Yum! Beautiful relaxed atmosphere with nice, soft background music. Prices are reasonable. We will... More

This is a real treasure in Salamanca, a city known for its dry cured ham and sausages. El Laurel is a wonderful vegetarian restaurant situated in the nearby area of the cathedral. Reservations are recommended for lunch and dinner since the restaurant has limited number of tables. The lunch special menu or "menu del dia" is a great choice because... More

Not every meal is going to be a culinary wonder. El Laurel was very homely, inexpensive and very satisfying. And it is not easy to find a vegetarian restaurant in pig-mad Spain.

We liked the restaurant so much, we ate there twice. Make sure you reserve! And, the waitress was fantastic. The guacamole, some of the best we ever had. Even the organic wine was good and reasonable priced. I wish I could find an El Laurel in every town.
