“Meat not missed!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Three of us went for dinner and none of us are vegetarians, The food is so flavoursome and fresh that the meat is not necessary, We had the bread and 3 dips for a starter between 3. It was only a portion for one but there was plenty. Be aware that the portions are large. Two of us had the curry served in a poppadom with rice. The other choice was the mushroom burger served with a delicious salad and chunky chips.

The desserts are very good so we had to have one (again between 3), The white chocolate cheesecake was yummy. Give this try vegetarian or not you won't regret it.

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

I'm not a vegetarian but my wife is. Finding a vegetarian-friendly place in Spain is a challenge but the aptly named Restaurante Vegetariano rose to that challenge admirably and delivered.

The restaurant displays two menus at its two entrances. The first menu (on the door nearest the main drag) is, well, average. Pizzas, wraps etc. All very uninspiring. The second menu (on the other door) is rather better. Order from that one.

We had involtini to start with (aubergine slices stuffed with cheese and nuts, in a punchy tomato sauce), followed by a tagine for me (rich, and served with excellent crunchy feta and couscous fritters) and vege burger for her (smoky with a creamy guacamole topping).

Well worth a visit, for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. There are many worse vegetarian restaurants in the UK.

“Poor service and bland food”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We visited this restaurant as one of our party was vegitarian and thought it only fair to give her more choice. The menu had pizzas, sandwiches, wraps and salads so a good selection. Three of our party had pizzas which did look very nice but the bases were very thick and wholemeal and were very doughy. Two of the pizzas were chilli based but still tasted very bland. I had a sandwich with garlic mushrooms, feta cheese, artichoke and peppers which sounded really nice but again very bland. We also had potato wedges which were very undercooked. (they didn't serve chips!!)
All in all the service was very poor and slow , the food was expensive as they seem to use the fact that there is not much choice for vegetarians to hike the prices up, and I would not go back

“Unusual tasty combinations”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This veggie restaurant is easy to find, very close to the waterfall fountain in Torrevieja, walking distance from the port car park. Fabulous food - tasty and unusual combinations. Each dish is enough for two - be warned!
