#167 Nice vegan lunch at the harbour, The Green Spot, Barcelona

restaurant review #167 – The Green Spot is a vegetarian restaurant in the city center of Barcelona. It is located near the harbour, also not far from the Catalunyan Parliament (in the Parc de la Ciutadella).

The restaurants covers the whole downstairs area of the building and there are entrances both at the Carrerde la Reina Christina and the Pas de Sota Muralla. I had made an online reservation for lunch, which turned out to be really necessary, as the restaurant soon was filled with guests for lunch.
We sat at the window, with a partial view at the harbour. The restaurant area is a spacious bright room, nicely decorated, with wood like colours dominanting the atmosphere. Seatings were comfortable.

Vegan options are clearly indicated on menu.

This is what we had for lunch:

  • Muhamara (6,50€) red pepper dip with walnuts, served with pita bread and celery
  • Edame beans with chili 7,50€.

The edame beans were ‘fingerfood’ and a bit unhandy and messy to eat (since they were covered in sauce).

  • Sweet potato tagliatelli with macademia nut sauce and black truffle (14,25€)
  • Lettuce with sauteed tofu and shiitake. Rice noodles and Korean sauce (10,5€)

The lettuce dish came with the instruction to make ‘spingrolls’ myself, with the big lettuce leaves. This turned out to be sheer impossible and quite a messy and unhandy affair, so I just mingled everything together.
The lettuce also could have been ‘trimmed’ a bit more carefully, having block spots on the edges.

rolling it in the salad didn’t work. So I just mingled it 😉 The Green Spot, Barcelona

There are several vegan desserts mentionned on the menu. We had the rhubarb and strawberry crumble (6€) and the carrot cake (5,50€).

Service was very friendly. A bit slow in the beginning, but then picked up. Courses followed swiftly.
Toilets were very clean, and there’s also a wheelchair accessible toilet (on ground floor).

We had a very nice lunch, in a nice setting. The food was good (although sometimes a bit unhandy like the edame beans and the lettuce spring rolls).
Good value for money. A bit more expensive when compared to other dining out options in Barcelona, but in relation to Belgian prices, this is this still very cheap!
