Although I'm not a vegetarian addict, this place is worth visit. Service here is 1st class, food is also marvellous. Try local white wines, they are suprisingly good! Also, they understand gluten-free issues here well. Better book a table beforehand, easily full of people!

Very nice restaurant with delicious food. The dishes were very nicely presented and looked very tasty. My husband (who's a big fan of meet and very sceptic to vegetarian food...) had the sweet potatoe ravioli and he thought it was fantastic. I had the tofu korma and it tasted very good! The staff was also very friedly and welcoming. Hope... More

We visited here for the first time with friends. We had not noticed the restaurant before, despite living here for 8 years. We booked for a Thursday lunchtime, and we were glad we did as it soon filled up at around 2pm. The menu was varied and freshly made in the open kitchen. We had the Samosas to start along... More

Visited in February with my boyfriend and it was my turn to choose the meal out! Being a vegetarian I had seen great reviews on trip advisor and really wanted to try here! We called in early evening and they managed to squeeze us in for a table at 8. YOU HAVE TO BOOK! It's a small seating area so... More

I visited here with my Dad after reading the reviews on here - we were not disappointed! Dad's not vegetarian but he really enjoyed the food. I'm veggie and having been on Tenerife for nearly two weeks it was such a great surprise to find such a top class vegetarian restaurant so much better than the pasta and pizza I'd... More

We liked it a lot. The staff was really friendly. The food was delicious. Good vegetarian meals. They have an open kitchen which I think is really nice. Unfortunately we discovered it too late otherwise we would have gone there more often.

We randomly found this quaint restaurant on our first day in Puerto la Cruz and decided to try it out after our 2 data trek up Teide. We managed to get a table on the Wednesday night but decided to nook for the Friday just in case!. I emailed the restaurant to ask if I could book on the Friday.... More

Laid back, small restaurant in the more arty/student area of the town, with a welcoming atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and sevice was very good. The food was well presented and tasty, managing to avoid the starch heavy carbohydrate overload that can pass as the vegetarian option in many restaurants, even the specialist ones. Recommended, but get there early or... More

My husband is vegetarian and it's rare for him to have the run of a full menu, so I was happy to eat here. Our starters were lovely - croquetas and samosas. Main courses however were like a "fridge surprise" I'd rustle up at home on a weeknight - they were fine, tasty, but nothing memorable. Really good organic wine... More
