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.

Buffet style meal, superb fresh ingredients, delicious soup, and a choice of mains and salads. Soup and unlimited visits to the buffet for just 6 Euros. Takeaway option available. Central location. We were shown to the buffet by the owner with the words, "Help yourselves, you are at home.". We certainly felt very welcome, greatly enjoyed the food, the atmosphere... More

Happened upon this place by chance ambling through Faro and struck gold. My partner and I are vegetarian and to find this on our last day in the Algarve was wonderful. We tried everything in the lunchtime buffet: soup, stew & rice, lasagna verde and salad and it was all delicious, washed down with a glass of white wine. Friendly... More

Simple, thoughtful, tasty, nutritious vegetarian food. Loved it. The more of these types of restaurants, the better! Very personal service, über mellow ambiance, sweet treats to finish the savoury buffet. And nice tea. Also, a super way to avoid the tourist trap restaurants. Oh, and the entire buffet costs the same as a plate of sardines elsewhere incidentally. Excellent value,... More

What a wonderful surprise to stumble upon this restaurant. The food is truly excellent. I highly recommend it even if you are not a vegetarian and would like a delicious and healthy meal. Its buffet style, with different price structures, so you can just pay for a plate or a salad, or for approx 7 euros have all you can... More

Simply brilliant. Amazingly good food!! If you are veggie, even if you're not visit this restaurant. Trust me you won't regret it. When we were there we visited twice. Great variety and great service by the owner who was very charming.
