“Good value, good food, good location, great ambience, easy to negotiate!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Well a few streets north (and on same side as) the public market, off La Ramblas. Number 25 Carrer, Pintor Fortuny, this deceptively spacious cafe-cum-restaurante has a narrow frontage but goes back for miles! On offer only vegetarian quisine in a buffet self-serve style.
You can have a soup, piles of salad, main and a pud for 10 euro`s, or have composte bits, individually priced. We were a group of five. All had salads - a good selection from pasta, potatoes, boiled eggs, pulses, peas grains, olives, tomatoes, peppers, mixed beetroot etc etc. Good dark grain bread.
I had plate of very varied salads and hot tofu curry and couscous. The pasta with Rocefor sauce and the Carrot Pie got the thumbs up too. The chocolate brownie was dense, dark, moist and delicious, choice of teas, juices etc. The bill for 5, all consuming no less than two courses, but some three..with drinks was under 48 euro`s.

“Healthy vegetarian food is boring? Think again!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Biocenter is 1 minute walk from the Rambla. You can get 3 different experiences based on the time of the day you go. From 1pm to 4pm there is the set lunch with eat as much as you like salad buffet and hot meals.
If you go from 4pm to 8pm, you can have a coffee, fresh cakes and few tapas.
Finally after 8pm there is a quite unique “a la carte” menu, with original combination of vegetarian ingredients served in huge portions. A must try is the meat-like seitan (wheat protein) in white wine sauce.
And if you have the luck to go on Thursday or Friday you can also enjoy a class of salsa or tango before or after your supper.

“Very good veggie place”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

As a vegetarian it is sometimes hard to find a restaurant in Spain, but this was very nice. They had lots of menu choices, all the food was fresh and tasted great, and especially the cakes! The service was very nice, despite the fact that it was very busy.

“Nice place for a vegetarian meal”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

As vegans, we struggled trying to find places to eat in Barcelona. Most veggie places tend to be very informal and casual and more suitable for lunch, so we were quite pleased to find this place that offered a step up in ambiance and gave us an opportunity to eat a nice romantic dinner out while sticking with a vegetarian place. The food and service were both excellent. Would go back again.
