“Devine food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

We went here cautiously after a bad experience in the last vegetarian restaurant we ate at in San Sebastian but thankfully this place restored our confidence once again. Each plate was beautifully flavoured and made with delicious fresh ingredients. There was a wide variety of dishes to choose from my favourite being the rice burgers with tempura veg and the Tartalitas. The staff were very good and the atmosphere of the restaurant was very chilled. A very pleasurable evening!

“Bloomin' Marvellous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

After many years of visiting the La Manga strip and self catering due to lack of vegetarian options, we were pleasanty surprised to find several proper vegetarian restaurants on this trip. El Girasol (The Sunflower) is situated in a busy part of central Murcia, conveniently located near a car park. We arrived literally as the restaurant opened at 9pm (not unsual as the Spanish eat quite late). Just as well - it soon filled up, and by the time we left people were waiting for seats. And with good reason. The cafe-style setting is lovely decorated with photos (which are for sale) and a large sunflower pattern on one wall. The two ladies that ran it were delightful and very helpful. But of course, it was the food that everyone came for. Delicious dishes, elegantly presented, bursting with flavour and freshness. My favourite dish was the vegetable and lentil burgers, served with rosemary mash and vegetables. But everything we tried was delicious. We found many eggless and vegan options. Highly recommended, and advise you book ahead if possible.
