As the one veggie in a group of 5 I felt this really had to be good to keep everyone happy. We couldn't have asked for a better meal. The portion sizes were perfect, we ordered a selection of dishes to share. None of us could choose between them as to our favourite; they were all delicious. The staff were... More

Is it justifiable to book another holiday to Lanzarote just for this restaurant? I'm from the UK and I am sad I can't go back here as much as I want easily - the food was amazing, I would definitely recommend the vegetable and peanut satay and the greek lemon potatoes. I also had a chocolate and lime tart for... More

Best vegetarian food I have had in ages, a selection of Greek inspired vegetarian tapas cooked to order by friendly amazing staff, reasonable prices. With only one vegetarian in our party of four and we all agreed it was the best meal of the holiday.

Visited last night for dinner to find this little gem (not much more than 7 or 8 tables) almost full and found out why-- the food was delicious. None of our party are vegetarians but none of us missed meat as the flavours and textures more than made up for that. Super friendly service and lovely atmosphere added to the... More

I feel we were quite lucky as our apartment was quite literally on the door step of Blooming Cactus, so no hunting it down for us! The food was out of this world and so well priced. We ate the mousaaka, beans with tomatoes and feta and greek potatoes with lemon and garlic. All of it was beautiful. We've been... More

Saw reviews on TA and although we are in no way vegetarian we love Greek food and therefore gave this a go. It was simply outstandingly tasty. The restaurant is rather hidden away in the old town but you must find it, you will not regret it. Every dish was beautiful. We will be back.

We found the blooming cactus by chance when out walking and decided to try it out. As a vegetarian family it is a rare treat to go into a restaurant where we can order anything we like. We tried numerous dishes and shared everything tapas style...we were not disappointed! The flavours were delicious and each dish complimented the other. What... More

Drinks The local wine wasn't very nice. Thats all we had. Location Bit out of the way in the old town but worth the extra effort.... More

I had read many excellent reviews about the Blooming Cactus before we visited Puerto del Carmen. ..and the food we ate lived up to all those brilliant write ups! My husband is not a veggie, and he only went along "to stop me moaning" We had the satay and the curry. They were both fantastic dishes, even better than we... More
