The venue is in what is a quiet spot at the moment but don't think it will be long before it is bustling! The food choice was really big and the cheesecake was delicious! My whole family came, everyone tried something different and we all...enjoyed trying each dish Loved it!More

Had lunch there after reading all the great reviews. I had the Mel Burger and my boyfriend had the dish of the day - Lasagne. Both were delicious and I would highly recommend the burger as it’s the best vegan one I’ve ever had! For...desert we had the chocolate and prune cake and the red berry cake, again we were not disappointed. We will definitely be eating here again.More

The restaurant underwent a name change around the 2nd week of June 2020, and it's now called 'Alcachofra', which means Artichoke in English. The waitress was very pleasant the menu quite extensive. I was very hungry and so had the burger and French fries and...two of their homemade fruit juices. The food an drinks were both very good. The staff are very diligent with regard to Covid-19 precautions. I will definitely return when I am next in Faro. Recommended.More

Very tasty Golden Milk, chocolat cake and cappuccino. We didn't try their meals as we were after some dessert, but I remember they had diverse options for dessert. But I think they over charged for an almond milk replacement over the soy milk. As far...as I remember it was 2€ just to replace the milk. I only think maybe they could take care more about the place, it didn't look that clean.More

Vegetarian/vegan restaurant in Faro with a lot of options on the menu. We had lunch here, but also a good place to have breakfast or dinner. If you are looking for a restaurant with a lot of vegan options, this is the place to go

Had the burger, really great homemade vegan food. Would definitely go back again when I'm next in Faro! Staff were friendly and helpful, with a great selection on the menu.

Spanish craft beers, all food vegan, chilled out home made space with drawings and art of animals, v small menu, with a few small plates and a couple bigger. So if you want a lot of choice or eating with people who need a lot...of choice when going vegan might not be the best. I loved it. Beetroot quinoa salad like a tasty coleslaw with a good vinegar. Good portions.More

Just had a few tapas bits after arriving late in the evening to faro. Great veggie selection, not the boring veggie menus you get in regular restaurants. Yummy organic wine too, would have gone again if we had been staying longer. Based on a nice...little quaint square with a bit of a buzz so good vibes.More
