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!

Most of the meals are vegan, including delicious deserts. They only open for lunch, and the restaurant is rather small, but cozy. The menu changes daily. The prices are also very affordable. My favorite in Algarve.

Cooked freshly every day with love and care for the consistent quality and variety of flavours. Totally veggie and some vegan. It's a treat to find this truly veggie restaurant in the midst of so many 'meaty' or 'fishy' places. Go and support them.

Although this restaurant is only open from noon to 3pm, it is one of the best restaurants in Faro! It is a delicious buffet of vegetarian dishes for only seven euros fifty! There was soup, curries, creamed vegetables and rice dishes and a salad stand. Needless to say my boyfriend and I ate so much that we couldn't try the... More

Small café which is very popular. We got there after 30 minutes of opening and had to wait 10 minutes for a table. Would not recommend taking a pushchair as not enough space in the café. Food delicious that we went twice. buffet option only and cash payment only. They charged half price for my 4 year old, even though... More
