My husband and I happened upon this place just behind the Roman theatre. It was a bijou gem of vegetarian delights - quirkily decorated, not horribly spartan like so many veggie places. We started with a beer and complimentary focaccia with two delicious dips, then made our way through the menu picking out one vegan delicacy after another: mushrooms al pil-pil, paella, seitan shish kebabs with salad, seitan meatballs with coleslaw, washed down with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and a glass of Chardonnay and finishing off with a fruits of the forest milkshake. All delicious, all vegan, generous portions and friendly helpful service. My omnivorous husband loved it too. If we were staying longer in Malaga we’d definitely go back. Delicious.

Quirky little restaurant serving fabulous veggie and vegan food - nothing 'worthy' or self-righteous about this place. Fresh, interesting dishes washed down by ice-cold beer and generous glasses of house wine. My wife and I shared 5 or 6 dishes....from wild mushroom pil-pil and vegan paella to seitan kebabs and 'meatballs'... delicious!

We had winter stew (vegetable soup) which was delicious! They brought fresh garlic bread with it. Great location, friendly service, filling food. The menu had a huge choice and was written in 3 languages.

The restaurant itself is one funky little place, a mishmash of objets all over the walls that makes it feel like a really cool junk shop. We were keen to go as my husband is vegetarian and we have often found it hard for him to dine well in Spain. So, nice for him to have a menu where everything was veggie, but I am sorry to say that the food was rather bland. Maybe it was our choices - a cheese, tomato and basil turnover, and spinach and cheese fritters, with various hot side dishes - but flavour was really absent. In particular, in the dishes we had, no garlic or onion, or any kind of spice, and no discernable herbs save the basil in the turnover. Much more choice to be had these days in regular tapas bars for the hungry vegetarian.
