Good lunch

A delightful spot for nourishment! I relished a mixed plate featuring quinoa mushroom risotto, black beans, and a refreshing salad—absolutely scrumptious.

Pros: 100, Star, Healthy

Home cooked vegan food

If you’re looking for a small cozy place to have an authentic home cooked meal kind of feel this is the place. You choose your plate size and you choose which main dishes you want. The food alternates each day. They also have a lot of dessert options. The food is delicious and the desserts are not sweet which I didn’t like (but that’s just a preference).

Poor variety, and it sells home made food, which doesnt taste bad but its not great. Has a friendly environment though

Pros: friendly

Cons: expensive , not restaurant like food

cozy place with delicious food

O espaço é pequeno mas muito bonito, localizado perto da estação de metro de Picoas. Tem disponível vários pratos vegetarianos ou vegan diariamente, sopa, salada e várias sobremesas e os preços variam consoante o tamanho do prato que escolhemos. Pedi uma sopa de legumes (1, 8€) e um prato mini (6€) com pastel recheado de legumes, acompanhado com arroz integral e salada (todos os pratos são servidos com esta dupla). Estava tudo muito saboroso, apesar de simples, transmitindo aquela sensação de comida caseira. Provámos também um salame de alfarroba (1,5€) que, para mim, surpreendentemente, foi a estrela do almoço.

Nice spot for an excellent home-style meal

Alfarroba is the kind of place I wish there were more of. Don't expect a typical restaurant- this place offers great home cooked dishes in a friendly, low key setting. I got there about one hour before closing, at which point they had one of three dishes left: a pasta with tofu and veggies, which was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent and the food extremely affordable (under 12 euros for the pasta, a water, an espresso and an amazing fig brownie).
If you're looking for a fancy joint with an expansive menu, look elsewhere. But if a simple and tasty veggie/vegan meal in a cozy and clean spot satisfies your cravings, I highly recommend stopping by Alfarroba.

Pros: Quality homemade food, Cozy place, great service, Very affordable

Cons: Limited menu (wasn't an issue for me)

Good, but nothing special

Friendly environment, but could have more variety. When I went, there were only 2 dishes to choose from. The food was good but nothing special. If I come back, I might update this review, but for now I wasn’t all that impressed. Though I’ll keep an open mind and try it again some other time.

Great lunch

Choice from 3 different lunch options.
Multiple choices possible, I took two with rice and salad.

Super tasteful and cheap for the amount you get.

Definitely recommended!

Delicious and cheap lunch

For 7€, I had a plate with a mix of two dishes of the day. Both were very good and it was a pretty generous serving. It tasted really homemade.

Delicious homemade food.

Surrounding by many corporates, this place is ideal for a lunch break. It operates like a canteen with 3 main dishes which you can pair with brown rice and/or with a vegetable salad. The food is very tasty and healthy, always reminds me of homemade food. The restaurant is very cozy with large windows, pieces of art for selling, and jazz music playing in the background. The prices are very accessible too. I recommend this place, for a lunch or even for take-away!

Pros: Price, Location, Homemade food

Very cute place

Simple lunch place. Very affordable for the food quality. Different pricing is available. Plates include one warm choice with rice and salad. Our only disappointment was dessert. We tried 2 and they were not sweet at all, it’s like they follow 0 sugar policy. The place is so beautiful and cute. Lunch time you should arrive early or late otherwise it’s not easy to find table. No outside seating!

Pros: Affordable , Good and healthy food, Beautiful place

Cons: Desserts, No tap water service

The food was delicious, the lady was incredibly nice and we were extremely satisfied. Super yummy main dish, fresh home made juices and gluten free+sugar free desserts. Could not believe the price either. You’ve got to go eat there if you’re in Lisbon!!

Nice, small place for a quick and cheap lunch

Don’t expect too much from this place. They serve decent and tasty food but only have 2 or 3 options. When I had lunch there, there was marinated tofu, a lentil stew and a couscous salad and it all tasted very nice and homemade. It’s perfect for a quick lunch but you can’t be too picky of course. the owner is also super friendly.

A nice little neighborhood restaurant

"Alfarroba" is a new venue that offers simple but tasty and cheap veggie dishes, including special preparations with tofu or seitan.
Soups are also excellent.
The place is quite small (~8 tables) so it can be easily packed (and a bit noisy), but there is always a take-away option.
Great value.

Pros: Great value

Cons: Small

Delicious and Comfort Food

Everytime I forget my lunch at home this is the place I always choose without even blinking. The food is so delicious and to me it always make me feel like I’m eating my comfort food, which is the best feeling you can get. Their burguers are their cereal bar are the best in town!

Nice local place

I had the soup here once. It was really tasty and only something like €1.90 a bowl. The food looked really freshly prepared but we were in a bit of a rush so didn't have the chance to try anything more. Shame. I would like to come back here for more now that it is all vegan.

Pros: friendly staff , local place , vegan
