What a delight, it's not easy to find a vegetarian or even vegan restaurant outside the larger cities, but to find one with inspiring food in the town of Fuengirola, Malaga was a treat. Walking into the restaurant I was instantly pleased, it is a relaxed and clean space with contemporary decor matching the ethos of the food. We were greeted promptly with a smile, the menu presented to us was well laid out and thankfully had an English translation. Typically it listed all allergy guidance clear and simply, and marked vegan options. The food was set out under the various headings, tapas, salads, bruschetta, plus the mains and veggie burgers. Each group had a good variety of options. We started with the stuffed pimentos, pates and the standout, the vegan kabab - best I've had! For the main I shared the exotic burger and the vegan moussaka, both had their own distinctive flavour which would be a delight for anyone interested in a new food experience. This restaurant is well worth the visit for ethical eaters of those seeking a great food experience.

Visited here for our evening meal. However, realised it is probably much more suitable for lunch... I suppose it is a cafe!

The food was wonderful. We had a lovely platter with whole meal bread and 2 vegan Pate dips to start following a vegan kebab (which was the best kebab we've both ever tried). My moussaka was very tasty and was a generous portion. However, my boyfriend's burger wasn't as good... The burger bun was far too big for the little amount of burger you got inside and was a little dry.

The service was extremely slow. We waited roughly 30 minutes to receive our drinks... To be fair, we did order smoothies/lemonades which do take a considerable amount of time to prepare... It is just apparent more staff are needed there.

Overall, I would definitely come back; just not for dinner.

Thanks for taking the time to review our new restaurant. It is unfortunate that you came when our juicer has been out of service, we are putting in further investment new juicers to enable us to make fresh juices quicker and working with our bakers for more suitable burger buns. Our menu is constantly in development and we appreciate they feedback. We hope you can make it back soon.

We traveled thru spain during 4 weeks. This was our last meal eating out. And it was amazing. Cheap aswell. The vegan salzicha was to die for and so was The Seitan kebab, and The vegan moussaka... Or so we thought. Then we tasted their vegan chocolate cake for dessert. Dreamy, just dreamy. We payed €24 for it all, including drinks.
Remember that this is "slow food", wich means that, though you wait a few minutes More, The flavours are amazing. Just Go there already!

One veggie amongst us, but we all equally enjoyed the experience. We tried the tabla de "ivericos", and the hamburger with mango, the pineapple and cava sorbet, the moussaka and finally the brownie. Everything was fresh, tasty and made with lots of TLC. The service was excellent. And the setting is a kind of boho shabby chic, very cosy and homely with gentle background music. Would definitely repeat.

Popped in to La Líbelula for a smoothie and a slice of cake with my partner after rambling through the streets of Fuengirola. The owner was super nice and accommodating of our poor Spanish, and helped to translate the menu for us so we could make a more informed choice. The prices were inexpensive compared to other similar establishments I've visited - only €3 for a giant slice of vegan chocolate cake. The lunch menu was €9.90 and consisted of a starter, a main and a desert. Great relaxed vibes and a gorgeous interior. We plan to return later in the week to check out their evening menu!
