Vegetarian Food in Valencia: 11 Restaurants in the City Centre

Enjoying vegetarian food in Spain has become much easier in recent years. The number of vegetarian and vegan restaurants is growing in Spanish cities and they now tend to offer different options too, including gluten-free or lactose-free recipes.

Barcelona is currently at the top, proclaiming itself ‘Veg-Friendly’, but Valencia more to the south doesn’t want to get left behind. We explored the vegetarian scene in the centre of this sunny coastal city, after Madrid and Barcelona the third largest city in Spain.
