Nice Try

We can only confirm the other review: The menu sounds more interesting than the actual food. The couvert items were delicious: Good bread, tasty olives, and wonderful marinated carrot slices - but why were we served various fish spreads even though we explicitly wanted vegetarian food? The seitan and tofu slices were OK but just rice and a creamy sauce (one with mushrooms, the other with Dijon mustard) is plainly dull. The salad on the side looked fresh but was just as dull.

Pros: delicious couvert items
Cons: dull food combinations, no vegetables on the side, uninteresting salad

The menu sounded promising

Staying in the nearby town of Olhao where veggie options are very limited we made the journey to Faro -to this restaurant. Firstly the staff were very friendly & spoke good English. The menu had lots of choice for veggies & vegans & it sounded really good - but unfortunately taste wise & presentation wise we were disappointed. Also the ambience was lacking with no music & a TV on in the corner. If you're sick of having little choice as a veggie or vegan in this area of Portugal, & you're not expecting anything too exciting then this place will suffice. Price was reasonable.

will suffice. Price was reasonable.
