“Still great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

As a regular visitor to Lanzarote I always worry that places that have been great in the past will have gone down hill. Not Blooming Cactus, lovely food in relaxed surroundings. Even persuaded my nephew to come along and he couldn't believe he liked veggie food! Could be a convert! See you next time

“Hidden little gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

You have to look carefully for the Blooming Cactus, it's a bit out of the way, not far from the port in Puerto del Carmen but if you are looking for a nice, quiet place with good food and friendly service this is the place for you.
It's the only veggy restaurant in Lanzarote but also it's one of the few places in Puerto del Carmen where you can find good food.
It offers a small selection of tapas, with greek, indian and mediterranean influences.
We've been twice in one week and we tried a bit of everything; Felafel is a slightly different than usual but really good and the breadcrumb cheese with honey is amazing, just to mention our favorite.
The lady give us some good advises about the island and places to visit.
Definitive, our next visit to Lanzarote will coincide with another dinner here!

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Saw this reviewed on Tripadvisor and though we'd give it a go.

It's along a backstreet heading away from the little port.

Lovely little place. They recommend about 3 or 4 dishes to share (if there are 2 of you).

We had Houmous and Pitta and the Lasagne was light and fluffy and delicious. It's all veggie or vegan.
My friend isn't a veggie but he thought the food was amazing.

Wish we were staying longer as we would have gone again.

“Great little place - worth seeking out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Friendly, fun place to go for a relaxed meal. Great service and really tasty food and as a vegetarian I could order everything on the menu - so we did.

Really garlicky hummus and creamy tsatsiki. Even my meat eating dining companions loved the veggie chilli. Oh and do have the red salad as it's gorgeous.

They're only open in the evenings and don't take cards but do go and seek out this little gem. You won't be disappointed.
