Homecooked buffet of the highest quality

This restaurant serves the most gorgeous, home style vegetarian buffet. The selection is only half a dozen or so different dishes, both hot and cold, but what this restaurant lacks in range it makes up for in excellence of cooking.

Delicious buffet café, small and very nice. Brazilian themed mains such as beans with rice, absolutely delicious and so filling and good. Lovely fresh squeezed juices too, what a delight this place is. Vegan mousse style coconut milk and summer fruits dessert, is awesome. Thanks.

Having read a review I stopped by for lunch today (12:30 PM). The buffet was 7.50 Euros and excellent value. Each dish was high quality, fresh and delicious. Flavours were complex and diverse. Soup was excellent, too. I recommend this to anyone who has even a vaguely healthy bent or appreciates tasty cuisine. It was a welcome contrast to what... More

Probably the best meal we've had in Portugal. Not just the best vegetarian meal but the best meal full stop. Soup, mains, desserts and fresh juices were all outstanding. And such a great price. Doesn't matter if you're a vegetarian or not, you must try this place!

All dishes are tasty, the service is really nice, the place simple but lovely. It's a system of buffet in which you choose among three different starters, three different main courses. We tried almost each of one and it was a pleasure for our taste buds! We warmly recommend it!

Went there for lunch on a weekday. It's a vegan small place, downtown Faro. The food is tasty, the service is swift. The juices are freshly made from fruit and veggies. They are tasty but, in our opinion, pricy. The dishes are very affordable. The desserts are different, tasty but, once again, overpriced. All in all, I believe I'll go... More
