Small resstaurant but big on taste

5 Posted on 08 / 15 / 2014

A great find serving interesting food we had never tasted before. Inexpensive and generous with different dishes each day.Well worth going!

Pros: Generous, Good value for money, Different food
Cons: Not very comfortable, More like a bar than a restarant, Great for lunch but not dinner

little gem

5 Posted on 05 / 04 / 2014

This is a little gem, the staff are very friendly, the food is simple but really tasty, with a choice of soup, two main meals,salads and pasties followed by a choice of puddings.
It is small cafe with only limited seating, it is very popular with the locals (justifiably).
They make fruit juices to die for.
Please give it a go it is well worth a visit.

Pros: Very good food, Good fruit juice / smoothies, Inexpensive
Cons: limited seating

Great vegan restaurant

5 Posted on 09 / 19 / 2013

We had to drive for an hour and a haf to get us some vegan food but it was so worth it. We enjoyed our meals and the smoothies a lot. So much that we went back there again the day after. Very friendly staff. Whenever we are going to Portugal again we will definitely stop in Portimoa.

Good food, very friendly

The staff here is very friendly, the ingredients are fresh, the food is good... definitely a good experience.

If you're in southern Portugal, this is the only vegan place you're going to find, but it's not just good because it's the only thing you can find. It's good on its own standard.

Desserts at this place are highly recommended.

Pros: All-vegan, Friendly

delicious homemade food with love

5 Posted on 10 / 29 / 2012

the best food we have eaten in portugal. my bf is not vegan not even veggie but he enjoyed this food so so much. he also said this was the best food :) we went there twice for lunch. both days they had delicious homemade cooked vegan food(three options normally - all nice balance of protein and carbs with healthy grains) you can have small or big plates. they put your choice on it with salad, nuts, bit of fruit & dressing. we had fresh juices and desserts. all delicious. the vegan deserts are divine. they serve soya coffee too.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, nice homey place

Wonderful food!

5 Posted on 07 / 27 / 2012

We were struggling to find Veggie food in Portugal and then we happened upon Vegetarianus in Portimao! We went for lunch and the food was absolutely delicious! There was no printed Menu, but the owners explained in detail what was on offer. What we chose was tasty, substantial, very filling and exceptionally cheap! The total for two Dishes of the Day and two freshly pressed fruit juices came to !5 Euros (£12.20 for two), by far our cheapest meal! We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant as a place to go and sample the delights of Vegetarian foods!

A solid option!

4 Posted on 08 / 21 / 2011

Nice place with no-frills yet tasty food. If I understood them correctly (I spoke Spanish with them) some of their stuff may not be vegan even though they are vegans themselves. Odd.
Either way, the juice was superb and the food was not objectionable either. On top of that, I had a couple desserts since apparently they were all soya-based and vegan. I got even happier when I found out that I could purchase some really inexpensive pastries for take away, both sweet and salty, which really came in handy for my trip the day after.

Pros: Juice, Food, Desserts/other items
Cons: Not quite reliable/clear opening hours

Basic but worth a visit

3 Posted on 10 / 30 / 2010

Didn't get a chance to eat here on the firt visit in Feb 2010 as it was closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Opening times apear to be Wed to Sat 9 am to 6 pm. It has seating for around 10 people, the food appears to be mainly vegan. On the day we went we had lasagne and a creamy (soya)spinach bread crumb coated pastie. We were the only people in and the whole family seemed to be helping around the place. Very friendly, glad I visisted but I prefer Alquimias on the other side of town.

Pros: location, food options
Cons: limited opening days

Best Vegan Food Ever

5 Posted on 09 / 06 / 2010

I visit this restaurant every time I'm in Portugal. This restaurant is 100% vegan. It is hard to believe they do not use milk or eggs, especially in their delicious desserts. Very small space but worth it! They are two main dishes to choose from every day. Try the spinach quiche if they are offering it.

Pros: Delicous, 100% vegan, Desserts
Cons: Small space

Modest little gem, make sure your visit it!

5 Posted on 07 / 14 / 2010

We were fortunate enough to make it to this place just before closing and we are so glad we did. The food was gorgeous and made with love and care. The owner and his daughter, who are both vegan were very friendly. According to the owner this cafe is vegan. No alcohol or coffee is served so this should be amended in the summary. Highly recommended!!!

Pros: Lovingly made food, Great tasting, vegan!
Cons: Not open during weekend
