So this is a difficult review to write. It's somewhat clear the restaurant is run rather chaotically. However the front of house man, Tony, is absolutely brilliant. He totally makes the place. At 5:45pm I booked a specific table for my partner for dinner at 7.pm. We arrived at 6:50pm to find people sat at the table I'd booked. Tony... More

Really enjoyed our second visit to this rustic restaurant. Menu has not changed - enjoyed all the tapas dishes and the very reasonable bottle of wine. Shared a very rich choc. and lime tart - delicious!

This is apparently a typical vegetarian restaurant, according to the vegetarian in our party. It has the warm atmosphere of a dark living room. Everything is a little unorganised but you will take that for granted because the food is great. Be aware that the dishes are plentiful, so we recommend to share unless you are very hungry.

Myself and my wife decided , somewhat against my better judgement - I being the vegetarian - to dine here recently. It was a strange experience to say the least. The menu is simple and offers a variety of different dishes. The food comes all at the same time - what would be classified as starters in most restaurants comes... More

We were so excited to come here and travelled from Arrecife as the reviews looked wonderful.... The restaurant itself is a lovely little authentic place with a nice romantic ambiance (it's clearly a place for couples to go for dinner). Candle lit table, comfy wooden chairs and a lovely bookcase with books added to the setting. Unfortunately, we were told... More

Great to find a nice vegetarian restaurant here in Puerta de la Carmen. Just a few tables, and a simple decor, but very cosy and laid back. And then the food was great! Recommend the roti and the moussaka.

I found the Blooming Cactus by chance, it is close to the Harbour in an Old Town backstreet, and passing trade is probably minimal, and it would be easy to pass by without noticing the restaurant. We arrived early on a Thursday evening, and only one other table was occupied so we were able to take our pick of the... More

Well worth a visit even if you are not vegan! Delicious guilt free food! 😍we had about 6 dishes and they were all beautiful, the waiter is a very friendly guy and the small cosy dining area gives a good feel! Not to mention the friendly sleepy dog that sits by the toilets.

Unusually wide choice for vegetarians and tasty for non-vegetarians too. Some tapas -style and generous portions of main courses.

"Best Curry ever tasted" and that's from my dad who is a meat eater and will never ever go veggie!! My little sister (10yrs) was a bit worried about the menu as she didn't recognise anything on their but he lovely chef made her some homemade chips which were gorgeous! Extremely friendly staff and nothing was too much trouble! Also... More
