Just had lunch at this great vegetarian restaurant in Faro and it was absolutely lovely! They do a buffet style, at least for lunch, and it's 7.50 a head to eat yourself silly. Today they had a very nice pumpkin soup, a mushroom and bean-dish, a quiche and salad with a variety of lovely sauces (have the green one, it's... More

We came across this great little buffet restaurant whilst wandering Faro. We had wonderful conversations with the chef who was really passionate about his meals. I think we paid around 7-10 euro for the 3 course buffet and it was so delicious. I'm not a vegetarian but I didn't miss the meat at all with these meals. I highly recommend... More

We just had the best meal we've had all week in this lovely, unpretentious, non-touristy vegetarian restaurant in Faro. Most of the restaurants we've eaten in our looked at have pretty much the sane menu, so when we found this place recommended online, we drove from Vilamoura to check it out. And we're very glad we did. It's a simple,... More

Went for lunch. Help yourself Veggie buffet. Everything, including I am sorry to say the soup, was luke warm. I guess that's the way they do things. Just for the record, clientele was 90% female, and 95% local Portuguese. Helpful owner/chef on hand who without doubt wants you to enjoy your visit. Three of us had soup, full buffet, 3... More

We stumbled upon this place as we were getting very hungry and were a little bit tired of the usual fare. The food as indicated is vegetarian and was delicious as was the fruit drink special. It appeared that a lot of local folks eat here on a regular basis as they knew the staff what they wanted to eat.... More

Even if you're not a vegetarian, this spot is worth a entire day trip to Faro. Hidden away, it is an unassuming gem. You can have as much food as your heart desires for an extremely reasonable price, and boy, will you be going for seconds! Go, go, go! Fly to Portugal to try it!

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.
