There are lots of yummy places that vegans can go to eat in Dénia…
A great vegan restaurant located on the Las Marinas road leaving Dénia. They specialise in raw food to create healthy and tasty dishes. They avoid all refined sugar and only use seawater in their dishes. You will not be able to find a microwave in their kitchen as they try to keep food as natural as possible, even their oven is 50% steamed!
The only criticism I have of this restaurant is it is too far from my house! I don’t get to go there as often as I would like 😢. I would recommend the lovely cold garlic soup on a hot Spanish day.
This is a great fast food restaurant if you’re looking for something quick (located just off of Marques de Campo) and tasty. Japiwok has friendly staff that know about veganism and are more than happy to tell you which of their dishes you can have. I opted to have the noodles with tofu and stir fried veg – it was yum (and only 5€!).
The friendly English pub is located next to the train station in Dénia and owned by the mega Vera, Andrew and Sean. Vera and Andrew have a vegan daughter so they are very familiar with the dietary requirements of a vegan and are therefore very accommodating .The Railway Tavern is one of my favourite places to go on a Saturday lunch for a mushroom and onion toastie with chips – yum!
This is a fish restaurant located in Puerto Deportivo in Dénia. Vegans can eat here by opting to have the goats cheese salad without the goats cheese – it’s still yummy! Vegetarians can also eat the ravioli or the tomato soup.
Tasca Les Monges is one of the friendliest restaurants in Dénia, located in Calle Loreto. Max, the manager and the waitresses (especially Anna) will go out of their way to help you in any way possible.
Vegan dishes include their lovely vegetarian paella. They also do a mega cheese and mushroom omelette for vegetarians. 😀
Found on the main street in Dénia, Marques de Campo, In my opinion, this restaurant serves the best pizza in Dénia. Note, vegans can just ask for without cheese! They also do lots of varieties of pasta (some without egg!) so vegan friendly.
This pizzeria located outside St Antonio’s Church serves a tofu burger!! The tofu burger comes with a sauce inside so I would check beforehand and remove it if non-vegan. I will check in the near-future. 😀
This lovely tapas restaurant on Calle Loreto offers a vegan take on patatas bravas: Fried potatoes with gravy. It also offers lovely padron peppers and a lovely Depepo salad.
Meshico is a Japanese-Mexican fusion restaurant located on Calle Loreto. I haven’t eaten in this restaurant yet, but when I spoke to the chef he said he would be more than happy to prepare vegan sushi – how lovely!
This beautiful little cafe is found down the small alley Callejon Morat. They serve great coffee (with soya milk!), fruit juices and the loveliest vegan sandwiches. This place is a little gem.
Codigos de Arte got taken over in Jan 2017, fortunately for us vegans they still promote amazing vegan food. They even offer a vegan menu del dia every Thursday for €9. I intend to go very soon!
Located on Calle Loreto, this lovely restaurant has super friendly staff who are more than happy to accommodate vegans. The grilled veg here is lovely, their vegetable paella (for one) does not use meat stock and they also serve a vegan patatas bravas! This restaurant is a lovely place to enjoy a meal with friends.
This restaurant is located on Alquería del Saladar and has incredibly knowledgeable staff when it comes to veganism. My favourite dishes to have are the mushroom bhaji (no cream), lemon rice and roti (no butter). Remember you get popadoms for free too!
This Nepali-Indian restaurant rivals the Indian Palace in location and in my opinion, on mushroom bhajis as well. Located a little way up Las Marinas on km 1, this restaurant serves great vegan food (even my meat-eater friends rave about it!). This restaurant can get incredibly busy on performance nights and during the summer so I would highly recommend that you book at these times.
This beautiful Thai restaurant is new to Dénia but already becoming a favourite among the locals. Staff are lovely and accomodating and the food is delicious. Every dish is available with tofu but make sure that you request without fish sauce, which is commonly used in Thai dishes. This restaurant can be found on the popular Calle Loreto.
This fantastic pizzeria is a favourite amongst my friends. This wonderful pizzeria, located just behind the indoor market on Carrer Magallanes, are more that happy to ensure their pizza base is vegan and serve their yummy pizza’s without cheese. Perfect for anyone who loves pizza! (Next we’ll have to convince them to use vegan cheese – my next goal!)
