This section is dedicated to the best Vegan restaurants in Europe written by different travel bloggers! I have collected all the best posts from like-minded travelers who have explored the quaint historical European cities and wrote about their veggie-friendly food options. There is so much to see and know about such historical and yet futuristic places that having a useful guide on our favorite food will help us sparing time on research, although I reckon that finding out a secret spot on our own is always a great feeling.
Enjoy your reading!

VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN LISBON
Once again Ashley is super informative in her piece when she shares information on local vegan restaurants of which she is so passionate about. It seems like Lisbon was a huge surprise in terms of vegan options as the city has been growing into a cosmopolitan hub in the last couple of years. According to the author, you will find fun local restaurants in marketplaces, buffet restaurants, and cozy little cafes’ that offer a huge variety of healthy vegan meals, mostly made with locally grown veggies. That I consider always a great plus. Check out the full article here
Jane and Stephen complete guide through Lisbon’s restaurant further confirm how the quirky vibrant city appears such a positive surprise for Veggies. It is less easy to stay Vegan, Jane explains, around farther places in Portugal where the plant base diet is still seen as a weird form of eating. Jane and Stephen are also giving out a useful printable guide with map of the 27 restaurants and precious info. Definitely not to be missed.

VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN BERLIN
I would expect that a multicultural and vanguard city such as Berlin would have offered such a great vegan option. However, the detailed descriptions that Randi from veggievisa.com wrote on her post, together with her pictures are just a mouth watering surprise. The read would make any meat-eater want to turn into a vegan right away… and go to Berlin! Check out the post here
10 PLACES TO EAT BERLIN VEGAN FOOD ON A BUDGET
YES! this is exactly what we needed. It’s easy to find vegan food in such a multicultural and forward thinking city such as Berlin, but (because there is always a BUT), Berlin is also quite an expensive city, we know that. However Jane is showing us that it is still possible to eat well and vegan even if you are traveling on a budget. Let’s see what she’s got for us. CLICK HERE to go to her post.
VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN BARCELONA
Kalena shows us how to get around the traditional Spanish and Catalan cusine in Barcelona, finding our veggie way among the Jamon Serrano and pata negra, proud icons of Spanish tables, from which is difficult to escape. Spanish culture in general is quite conservative in a way and asking in a restaurant to modify a menu can be quite disappointing. I was nodding while reading Kalena’s post. However she explains how to handle it, what we can eat from the menu without feeling worried and what are the few veggie friendly restaurants in the vibrant artistic city.

VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN REYKJAVIK
Amelie takes us through the plant-based food wonders of REYKJAVIK, a surprising veggie-friendly city. As the author, I would have never expected to read such enthusiasm in a country whose income is mostly based on Stockbreeding. I was pleasantly surprised to read about all the variety of artfully made veggie dishes, and the number of dedicated restaurants. Kudo to Iceland. It was on top of my to-visit list already and I am now more motivated to go. READ THE POST
VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN ROME
I was very positively surprised to read about the quantity of Veggie-friendly restaurants in Rome, considering the conservative culinary traditions we have in Italy (I am Italian and I know it 🙂 ) Angela Corrias from Romeactually.com is giving us a thorough review of all of them. Every restaurant comes with accurate description, address, opening hours and kind of food served, with Angela’s personal thoughts. I wholeheartedly reccomend to give it a look even if you are an omni eater as this site is THE guide through ROME culture, food included. I wish I have seen it before my visit to Rome.
