“a pleasure to find this veggie haven!”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Excellent staff who were not only more than happy to translate the catalonian menu for us, but described each dish. Really thoughtful and inventive dishes. My personal favourite was a lentil cake with a chocolate sauce...who'd have thought it?! A definite must go for vegetarians/vegans in girona.

“There's no better vegetarian / vegan restaurant in Girona”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

A constantly evolving menu and a real interest in vegetarian / vegan food means that Amaranta still stands as the best place in Girona for truly imaginative and elegant vegetarian food AND at a very reasonable price for Monday-Friday lunch.
I have taken many of my meat eating friends here and they have always had great meals that have opened their eyes to variety and flavours they didn't realise were possible.
Lunch this week had lentils with a chocolate sauce as my favourite new dish. The salads are yummy and the staff are friendly, helpful and speak English if clarification is needed about the dishes.

we had the sumptuous evening menu which was full of delicious surprises! everything was tasty, healthy and beautifully prepared (and not expensive at all), and was served by the very kind and helpful owner (menu is only in catalan, but the owner speaks english quite well). we had a great evening and will visit again if we return to girona.

“Clean, local, homemade, tasty vegetarian food”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

After a month of heavy (and tasty!) Spanish food, I took my group of 18 students to Amaranta for a vegetarian meal. The food is prepared with fresh and local ingredients. Everything is prepared in house, even the sorbet. Everything is vegetarian, with lots of vegan and gluten-free options. Most importantly, it was all delicious and the service is good. Very fun find - a bit of California in Spain. The restaurant is not in the city center, so a short walk is needed, but we believe a nice walk goes well with healthy fare.
