The best veggie restaurant in Faro. Only opened for lunch with a rich buffet where you can eat a bit of everything!! The food is delicious! And they have homemade juices that are spectacular. It is a small restaurant in the center of faro which makes it difficukt for large groups. Should definitely try it if you go to faro

The room is Small but there is also a tables at the street if the weather is good. The food is very good and the staff is friendly. It's only open for lunch and has no ATM machine.

Although the food is razonable regarding taste it's very limited regarding the choice!!! Also it's indicated for lonely persons or couples - not indicated for groups of 4 or more..... as the silence is an imperative on this space! Also the service - that I believe were made by the owners - was not friendly and polite as it should... More

Walking in not knowing what to expect! Found a delicious veggie lunch buffet. I think it was maybe 8 euro for the lunch special, had salad, hot mains and a dessert was optional. The food had great flavor. It was a quick spot where a lot of local business people on their lunches dropped in and out. Great for dining... More

Food here is excellent, great salad and mains full of flavour. Too bad this place is only open for lunch would have eaten here more often if they had dinner too. A must visit for vegatarians and non vegatarias as a very enjoyable experience.

We had a very tasty vegetarian lunch - there is a great selection of salads, curries and quiches and you help yourself. It's simple and excellent value. I'd just like to note though, that this isn't the only place for vegetarians in Faro - in fact there are quite a few veggie/vegan restaurants and we loved them all!
