Food | Best Vegan Places In Tenerife - A Vegans Guide To Tenerife

Isobel Celine

Firstly, DAM how gorgeous is Tenerife?! Have you ever been? If you haven’t then you need to. I found a fair few lovely vegan places and restaurants that cater for vegans during our week there. As well as some tips on how to find the places easier yourself. 

I’ll first let you know about an app called HappyCow which was a massive help during our week in Tenerife. It’s a vegan app that locates the nearest vegan friendly restaurants in the area you are in. There was so many lovely ones in Tenerife, plus you can use this app anywhere in there world which is amazing! Fellow vegans leave their reviews of places, upload pictures of their foods & rate whether a restaurant is worth visiting or not. Definitely an app worth having as a vegan.

By far my FAVOURITE lunch spot this place was. We even got chatting to the owner who was so funny & chatty to everybody. He used to have a restaurant in Ibiza for 14 years he was also telling us.

The food was incredible, I had a veggie chilli with rice from the flos special board - one tip is if you ask for the chilli make sure you say the veggie rice as there’s a wrap that’s called the veggie crunch which they get mixed up with. But if you do order the chilli, make sure to ask without the cheese as it’s not vegan. Adam had the protein burrito which wasn’t vegan, but a lot of the items on the menu are vegan you just have to look at what’s in it. They have such a massive variety of good brunch and lunch options as well as dinner to be honest. From a├žai bowls, wraps & burgers to chillis & salad bowls. All the healthy foods you could wish for. 

The smoothies, omg the smoothies!! If you get any smoothie on the menu, the Flos special is the one you want to ask for out of all of them. They also highly recommend this one to try as well, with so many different fruits as well, more than what is said on the menu is what they also told us. I could not recommend this place enough, super friendly staff, delicious food & incredible smoothies. If you are after healthy & deliciousness, Flos is the place the be. Also the interior vibe is super chilled & summery. Located not far from the beach front in playas de las Americas.

Wow, what a place for vegan food. Not only do they do delicious vegan food, they actually understand what vegans are.


There were so many delicious foods in this Lebanese restaurant, it was hard to choose! I went for the Spinach fatayer, batata hara & Lebanese rice. I can’t say I liked the rice as it had these sweet kind of noodles in them, but Adam seemed to like the rice.


As for the spinach fatayer, this was such a lovely little dish, would be a lovely little sharer or starter. I had a few little dishes to go together as there wasn’t any mains I liked the look of (fussiest eater award goes to me).


The batata hara, ugh if you try anything on the menu PLEASE make it be this. I could of eaten a giant bowl of these as they were beautiful. Basically spicy potatoes which were absolutely STUNNING.
Definitely highly recommend you visiting if you are in the playas de las Americas area to try this spot. Lovely staff and incredible food.

Now I wouldn’t say this place caters for vegans, but I have to tell you about the lovely fruit salad plate they do. Lovely sized platter of fruit that’s good for sharing or just eating the entire thing yourself. Other than that the only other vegan options are chips & salad. But they do pretty cool glasses shaped like wellies so that’s rather amusing. Based on the beach front in playas de las Americas.

A vegetarian & vegan brunch/lunch spot full of ALL the healthy options not far from the beach in Costa adeje. I had smashed avocado on spelt bread toast whilst Adam had the peanut butter and banana on spelt bread toast. It was lovely, but there was a bit too much avocado for me. 

Tierra also has lovely smoothies, vegan baked & sweet treats, alongside a menu filled with healthy options such as, vegan burgers, salad bowls & Buddha bowls.

They also do a little sustainable vegan and vegetarian shop next door to the restaurant as well. Unfortunately it wasn’t open when we went, but definitely take a look if you stop by there. Definitely worth trying out, as these vegan and vegetarian places to eat are a rarity.

The NICEST Indian place to eat. They do beautiful curries in the loveliest spot in the heart of playas de las Americas. Located opposite the Hard Rock Cafe up the stairs from the lovely fountain. I had a vegetable pathia with pilau rice, garlic naan bread & spicy chips. Always check with places if the naan bread is suitable for vegans though as some places make them with non vegan ingredients.


The curry was STUNNING and so was the spicy chips. Omg the spicy chips, I know this is a curry place we are talking about but honestly if you get any sides there, PLEASE make it be the spicy chips as they were BEAUTIFUL. Wish I knew what the spices were so I could make them at home.

Another lovely healthy eating place that caters for vegans. This place was located inside the Siam Mall next to Siam park which is a fab little place to shop by the way if you are in playas de las Americas to the Costa Adeje area. 

We tried the smoothie bowls from Soul Kitchen which were honestly SO good. I had the banana and mango smoothie bowl, whilst Adam had the peanut butter and banana smoothie bowl. The granola in the bowl I had was so delicious, it was like a cinnamon mix and I need to make my own version of this at home for sure. They also had lots of lunch choices from sandwiches & salads etc. Just double check what’s vegan and what isn’t as it’s hard to tell from the online menu. 

Would definitely recommend there as it’s also a really cute Instagramable spot with the flower wall and cute interior.

This place had so many good vegan options to choose from. From tacos to fajitas to burritos. I tried the vegan tacos which were lovely, apart from the only fact that I didn’t like some of the vegetables as yet again, I’m the fussiest eater going.

Also the beans filling in the tacos I found them rather bland, needed a bit of spice for my taste buds to be honest. But either way they were something new to try and it was nice. Located in the same area as Bombay Blue in playas de las Americas up the stairs from the fountain.

A little Italian restaurant again located in the same area as the precious two restaurants in playas de las Americas up the stairs from the fountain. There wasn’t many vegan options in this restaurant, but I did enjoy a nice spaghetti alla napoletana which is basically spaghetti & pasta sauce along side a garlic bread to soak up the sauce.

Was a nice place to eat, but can’t say the guy on the door was very good as he tried to move us once we sat down due to a table being reserved when we were told it was fine to sit there. Other than that it was nice.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the service here was honestly AWFUL. But the food was SO nice. Which doesn’t help, so I’d recommend the food as there’s four types of cuisines to try from; Thai, Chinese, Sushi & Japanese. So a very good variety, but the service was terrible.

It took ages for someone to come and take our order, the food did come quickly though but our drinks order was messed up so we got our food before our drinks. We were over charged for the food, Adam ordered chicken balls as a side and we were charged as main and they refused to change this, we paid anyway but the fact I had to ask 3 different people to pay the bill was awful after having to argue with the staff about the over charging. So I wouldn’t recommend, but I can’t complain about the food as it was nice. 

As for the food, I ordered a vegetable soy Chinese curry with jasmine rice & chips. It was a lovely dish and there was loads of it so I took the rest back to our apartment to eat the next day. They did have really great vegan options there also. There is another place very similar to the four seasons right next to it called Delih delights I’m sure which would probably be better trying out, I’m just not sure if there is many vegan options. Again this place is based in the same as the others, but you would through to the back of the fountain to a walkway to all the other restaurants.

That’s all the places worth mentioning in this guide for you for vegan places. But I do have to say that most places we’ve been to, the staff in restaurants have been either rude, not attentive or just shocking in general. Some places were lovely but a lot of the time service and staff have been rather rude. So watch out for this where you do go is all I will say!

Have you been to any other these places in Tenerife or plan to?
