Vegetarian food, freshly and imaginatively prepared. Delicious! Restaurant hidden away in the housing estate, well worth seeking out. Booking a must.

The El Romero serves very tasty and modern vegetarian food, a rare alternative to the everyday cuban cuisin.

We loved this place. Although neither of us are vegetarian, the options on the menu were vast, and we tried things we wouldn't have had the chance to anywhere else. Great views (if you can get a table on the terrace), and we loved the fact that everything is grown within the commune

This is a great vegetarian restaurant with a good selection of food which is fresh, tasty and well presented. It's a bit more expensive than other restaurants but it's worth it. The bean pancakes were great but the highlight for me was the herb bread. It's so good you have to try it. You also get to choose the size... More

The best vegetarian restaurant I have ever been. I have been in several veggies restaurants in Madrid and London and I wish they will have the same level of quality as El Romero. Lovely service too. I eat meat and fish but I would love to have a restaurant like El Romero back home and I will be converted as... More

Inspired catering and fresh ingredients with a good location made this a highlight of our stay in las terrazzas. It seemed to support the 'eco' idea which the rest of the resort lacked. Staff were hard working and maybe their long hours meant they were a little short on smiles, but they did a great job. We ate here twice... More

El Romero, located down the steps from the Moka Hotel, promises gourmet vegetarian cuisine -- and delivers it. Food is sustainable harvested/procured wherever possible, and it's amazing what can come out of such a tiny kitchen. Posted hours were 9 a.m. - 9 p.m., but when we arrived about 5 p.m. the sign on the door said "closed". We went... More

We knew we wanted to visit this restaurant while we were in Las Terrazas and it was well worth it. Great, organic veggie food. Small, medium and large portions so you can try lots of different things. There is a beautiful terrace if you can nab one of the two tables out there. Go - even if you're not a... More
