Good small restaurant for vegans and vegetarians. Buffet with soup, salad and 3 main dishes plus rice and vegetables. Buffet and juice for 10 euros makes it good value.

An absolute must have in faro. It was our first time and the food was very delicious. The ingredients and the concept of the restaurant in general convinced me. The restaurant stands for natural products.

Paid about 5 pounds for a buffet lunch. Tofu and mushrooms was intense, but delicious. Perfect lunch for a beach holiday!

Vegetables and rice/pasta cooked in a ?Portuguese manner. Quite cheap for the quality and quantity (buffet). Definitely go in for a lunch. Salads, soups and main dishes.

Mostly Vegang- maybe one of the dressings or one main dish was not. A really great buffet with lots of options- healthy, balanced, simple, hearty home cooked food. The owner was incredibly attentive and could feel spirit as soon as we walked into the restaurant!...More

Like another review, stumbled across this veggie delight in central Faro. One veggie and three non-veggies who equally enjoyed it. My son said it was his favourite restaurant in Portugal. Very good value and a change from the other fare elsewhere. Very laid-back staff. Worth...More

We stumbled upon this city centre, cheap and cheery veggie restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised. The 'come again' lunch buffet is excellent value - 6 euros per person! - and it was nice to have some tofu stew, greens, veggie lasagna and fresh salads....More

We visited in the hope of some charm and tasty food- despite the pleasant English waiter, we found neither! The budget buffet was made up of the kind of dishes which give vegetarianism a bad press. Sloppy tofu, lentil and mushroom dishes which all looked...More
