How brilliant to find a vegan/vegetarian restaurant in Spain! Really enjoyed the lunch - staff so friendly and helpful despite our lack of Spanish. Food lovely and good value. Highly recommended!

The team led by Alfonsina offers the best veggie food in miles. In the midday a set menu, in the evening a la carte. Evening dishes are a bit more original that those offered in the midday menu but the food is always great. A salad bar and dessert complete the two main dishes in the menu. I keep coming... More

The interior of this hidden away restaurant defies the amazing culinary expertise that is produced by this humble looking kitchen. The food is beautifully presented and the taste exquisite - in London you would pay through the nose for this food. The only downside is that no one speaks English so it's impossible to order unless someone in the party... More

We went here based after reading all the positive reviews. We enjoyed a healthy vegan dinner in an informal atmosphere but were not blewn away. The place is run by three nice ladies with enthusiasm in a relaxed way. Some dishes were good, the noodles were overcooked and too salty. There is no wine list. We saw a lot of... More

The menu del dia is a well known concept in Spain but unfortunately for veggies it's almost impossible to find a delicious vegetarian menu del dia. El Girasol has one though! The service was absolutely great and the staff nicely asked us if we were vegans or just vegetarians. The water was free of charge (which it should be in... More

This was excellent food. Arrive early or make a reservation, even for lunch, as the restaurant is very small. We arrived at 1:45PM and were told that we couldn't be seated because they had reservations for all the tables at 2:30PM. I convinced them to seat us and that we would be done by then and I'm so glad I... More

Have been to this tiny vegan restaurant several times in the past two years and the food is excellent, never fails to be first class. This place has a chef who knows what vegan means and how to cook the food appropriately. It is always delicious and includes all necessary nutrition.

We were too late on a Saturday afternoon for the menu of the day which is good value at 13€ so we made a reservation for 9pm that eve. It was quiet when we arrived but full but the time we left at 10.30pm so a reservation is recommended. We had to choose off the menu from a choice of... More

Found this small family run restaurant last month, whilst we were in Murcia. It is a small family run restaurant which we stumbled across as it certainly is not easy to find... But was it a great find. As it was a weekday they had a limited set price menu but it was all great, (salad buffet, two courses, dessert... More

Me and my girlfriend had the pleasure of eating here last year (september 13) and it was great! The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and more than happy to help explain what was on the menu and how its prepared. The atmosphere was super chilled too. We asked if they had wifi and their response was that they... More
