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

I went there for lunch, it's mainly a self-service restaurant with vegetarian food. It's really good and pretty cheap. It was a great little place to go and eat at noon !

If you avoid this buffet because you’re not a vegetarian, the joke is on you. This is the best lunch in Faro and probably within a large radius of Faro. The cook must be a master, especially with curry. The buffet has at least four...More

We arrived late for lunch, so there wasn't too many options left in the buffet. Despite that, the remaining dishes were good, as well as the natural juices. The place is cosy, the food is nice (we had spaghetti bolognese with soy and some salads/vegetables...More
