Visited Alfarroba Café for lunch and absolutely loved it! Possibly the friendliest service we’ve experienced yet, very informative and passionate about the food, ingredients and ethos of their lovely little eaterie. Had a nice chilled vibe, was like an oasis of calm serving up some...really delicious food. They have a daily special plus a few other bits and bobs on the menu, loads of tea infusions and fresh juices too. A real vegan gem and a fantastic place to go for healthy food cooked with love. Highly recommend and can’t wait to go back :)More

The owners are a couple and very friendly, lovely and nice! The food is great, healthy and fresh. It’s creative and made with a lot of love. Set menu is a cup of tea, soup and main dish. Must try the desserts. Me and my...family always go for that plus dessert that we can’t resist. Usually we try one of each and share all. They have different ones everyday. And all is yummy. Without refined sugar which is so nice. Sweet but not too sweet. You’ll taste the flavors not only the sugar if you know what I mean.More

It’s the second year that during my vacations I visited the Alfarroba for lunch. It never disappoints! The lunch menu has always a soup, a main course and a tea and I can’t resist adding a dessert. Everything was delicious and the staff was super...friendly and helpful (as I asked for a bit os ice for my hurted finger). Really it’s a must go to when in Albufeira.More

Very authentic family owned place. You can really taste the passion in their food. The tempeh burger especially is outstanding. Also sell a small selection of high quality products to take away.

Alfarroba is a breath of fresh air in a mass tourism town, such as Albufeira is. The food is vegan and macrobiotic and much more important: very, very tasty. The service is friendly, very personal - a sincere interest in everyone who walks through their...door. And it is with that same sincerity and dedication that your food will be prepared. I love this place!More

The food was excellent. I had the mains of the day which was a vegan lasagna and my wife had the burger. Both dishes were very tasty. There is a different main dish every day, you can also have soup of the day and tea...for less than 10 euro. The staff are very friendly. The owner took the time to chat with us and explain anything we asked. You can tell he is passionate about his business. We also took some of his lovely cake for later in the day. We did go back for a second time, the mains was finished for the day (you can book ahead to order the main dish but you can not reserve a table). We had wraps which were very tasty. Definitely worth a visit.More

We visited Alfarroba Cafe on our 2nd to last day during our visit to Albufeira, which was such a shame as we would love to go back to this hidden gem. The food is fantastic and the staff is attentive, friendly and very passionate, which...is the perfect combination of a successful business. Being foodies from London, if you are in the area, please make sure you stop by and visit. My husband is picky and he had the tempehburger which he loved and I had the menu of the day, delish as well. Their homemade mayonnaise is to die for as well. They are 100% vegan and the food is absolutely delicious and the desserts are to die for. Here they are all about treating food with respect with the highest quality.More

Everything about this place is right on. Even down to the fact that the wooden chairs do not make a screeching noise when you slide them out from the table. All of the food is local and prepared the proper way. I highly recommend this...place and I of course will return.More
