Even though a good few restaurants on La Gomera offer vegetarian options there hasn't been a purely vegetarian and vegan restaurant since 'La Salsa' in Valle Gran Rey changed hands a couple of years ago. In San Sebastian de La Gomera, however, a new restaurant offering exclusively vegan and vegetarian food recently opened in what must be most unlikely location. It is in the pensioners and old folks social club right in the very centre behind the smaller square which is under the huge shady trees (see map). This location has the added bonus of being a green oasis in a courtyard with nothing but birdsong and pensioners playing dominoes and cards to disturb your dining experience. The local lady who runs the place and does the cooking is a vegetarian herself and takes pride in the fact that all
the food is home-made. She even makes her own seitan and spelt-pasta, etc.. The extensive menue boast 29 dishes from vegetarian burgers to salads, pasta dishes, vegan stews, stuffed peppers, and lots more. Even 'carnivores' who have eaten there because of the beautiful location did not miss their accustomed ration of meat because the lovingly prepared veggie food was so filling and absolutely delicious. Prices are very reasonable ranging from 5 to 8 Euros for a very satisfying dish.
