Our daughter researched veggie friendly restaurants for our visit and this was one of her selections. What a great experience we had. It's a fixed price for a 3 course meal - you can add extra items if you wish. The waiter spoke good English to explain the Spanish menu. Everything is vegan or vegetarian, such a delight! The service... More

If you hate happiness you will love La Biotika. I am sure that the food is perfectly healthy but it is hard to imagine a less flavoursome menu. With not a fresh herb in sight we were left to eat the world's saddest soups, vegetarian mince and miscellaneous vegan mush. All this was possibly accompanied by green veggies but they... More

My husband and I dined here on two separate trips to Madrid. Both times we were immensely satisfied with the quality of the food and the beauty of the preparation. It can be difficult to find vegetarian food in Spain, so I was thrilled to happen upon La Biotika during our first visit. They also serve wine which was a... More

Always open, offers macrobiotic vegetarian cuisine, mostly vegan (only exception are some diary deserts). Tends to promote the fix price daily menu, tasty and healty. Also available à la carte selection, more expensive. The atmosphere and the cold behaviour of the waiters do not make you feel very comfortable.

Vegan restaurant that serves set menus that are good value and fairly tasty. I would recommend the croqueta or the chickpeas. Some of the other things were a bit bland but all in all it was preferable to going to any other restaurant in Madrid that doesn't even know what a vegan is.

* Vegan! Not bourgeois, not trendy, not nouvelle. Just vegan. Yes, you have a reliable, tasty, attractive restaurant to turn to when uptight, overpriced establishments like Rayén send you packing. * Centrally located! Even though its in a touristy area of town, this neighborhood institution has been here for decades, and it has a LOYAL following of "regulars". Expect as... More

Very simple food the way vegetarian food used to be in the 70s. Really the kind of food that gave vegetarianism a bad name. Lots of vegetables with a bit of tofu and rice thrown in, unimaginatively served, and bland rather than tasty. Bizarrely the restaurant seemed proud of its food as if no-one has heard of vegetarianism. Probably healthy... More

A very relaxing albeit weird atmosphere. Very small selection. The carrot cake was pretty good. The waiters are very nice and attentive.

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
