Favorite Vegetarian Friendly Restaurants Almuñécar (Some Vegan Too!)

While we aren’t aware of any dedicated vegetarian restaurants, there are plenty of vegetarian friendly restaurants in Almuñécar.  We have compiled a list of favorites of ours and our readers.  Typically, if you don’t see something on the menu that meets your needs, you can ask for something special or ask to alter their menu items.  For example, even when you order a salad, you need to make sure you say no meat or fish, as many automatically come with ham or tuna.  Just be clear when you place your order.
