As a vegetarian or vegan this might be the best choice for lunch in Faro. The all-you-can-eat-buffet for 7,50 € includes salads, a soup, bread, rice and three different curries. Everything tasted well. Only the Papadum was quite stiff. Weak point: The tables weren't really clean - not really ugly but also not very appetizing.

Really nice vegetarian food in the heart of Faro. We got a vegetable soup and the buffet for lunch - but because there was a big group eating inside of the restaurant the waitress served the food for us (we did not get to self-serve). In that way we did not get to try all the different things, but the... More

I stumbled across this wonderful restaurant when visiting Faro on a local bank holiday. The food (buffet) was incredible. With a choice of hot and cold dishes, every dish was amazing. I would recommend this restaurant for vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

A real surprise - and a delight and a relief - to find a 100% vegetarian restaurant in Faro. The lunch buffet costs E7.50 - eat as much as you like: what a bargain! I think all the dishes on the buffet were vegan and the food was fresh, tasty and healthy. Good variety, too. The owner was friendly, welcoming... More

Have to say that the taste and freshness of the food at the lunch buffet (7.5euro) was excellent. Also the dessert based on ginger, apple and canel (that looked like chocolate mousse) was superb. Only 1 tip to owner: do not play Beethoven (like 'alle menschen werden bruder') as it just feels akward.

We had a great meal here. Soup, buffet and dessert. It was all really fresh and tasty. We had a good conversation with the people inside too.
