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.

One of the busiest places we ate in during our stay. The food is good, a well cooked buffet for a reasonable price. Couldn't really ask for more. This is no fine dining restaurant, but that was never the expectation.

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

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

Visited twice during our stay in Faro. Only opens for lunch, but if it had been open for dinner I'm sure we'd have been there. Excellent vegetarian and vegan dishes. Self service buffet for 7.50. Drinks + dessert are extra. Food is fresh, nutritious and...More
