My wife and I decided to try this restaurant whilst in Torrevieja, having stumbling upon it by chance.

Having struggled for many years it was a pleasant surprise to find a dedicated vegetarian restaurant.

The environment was fairly basic but clean. Service was pleasant whilst not exceptional.

Food options were varied and quality was really good, we shared the trio of pâté as a starter followed by the sweet potato curry and triple chocolate cake which was exceptional.

We would definately visit again.

As someone who has been vegetarian almost all my life ( now a veggie for 40 yrs or so ) the food here is great. We ate here a number of times, both during the day and for dinner at night. This place was quite busy even when the surrounding restaurants weren't and had no need for touts outside like many places do here. Whether you are a vegetarian or not this is a great place to eat, the food seems fresher and if you want to get in your "5 a day" of vegetables this is where to be, other places we tried locally served little in the way of veg or good salads. The pizzas are more like pizzas should be ( I know how to make a pizza as any good Italian cook should ) and are better value than the ones from special pizza restaurants or the Italian themed restaurants nearby. The choice of food is wide from wraps & sandwiches to main course cooked meals,all servings are ample. For two I would share a starter ( the trio of pates starter would easily do 3 people ), chose something different each for the main ( so you can share) and if dessert is a must then have one to share. All items on the menu seemed to be available daytime or evening, for the long Spanish lunch there is a menu of the day being a starter & a main incl. bread and a drink for a very good price - compare to other places about. Everything we had was well prepared and well presented. Even if you just want a drink it's worth going in here whether for alcohol or one of their fantastic fresh juices or a smoothie. So whether a snack or a full on meal this restaurant is fantastic. Everything we had was ample to share between two from starters & dessert to wraps or pizzas or main meals - you could see that groups/families did exactly that ordering different items to share. In addition, apart from one lunch time, the other people in this restaurant were all Spanish which is usually a sign of a good place rather than just foreign tourists. It is situated just off the main sea frontage so is very easy to get to & find. We will be back ! This is the best vegetarian food I have eaten in a long time & we eat out at least once a week in UK & live near a town with many vegetarian eating places being an arty/alternative style town so can eat well, but not this well.

Stepping into this restaurant is like stepping back to the 1960s! It is so dated in decor. However, the food is excellent and my non veggie husband always enjoys a meal here. We share a starter and a desert as the portions are quite big. The owner once made me her bean burgers for takeaway for a BBQ at home.

We have visited this restaurant twice, on 2 separate holidays, and were impressed both times.
On the last visit we had the tagine and the 2 types of curry in a poppadom.
They were both beautifully presented - they looked very appetising and were full of flavour.
It is a nice relaxing environment to eat in, and if back in the area we will make the effort to go up to Torrevieja again for a meal here.

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.
