Amazing lunches! - Edit

Alfarroba always has good lunch options (most of them vegan), excellent desserts and refreshing fruit/tea drinks. Please ask as not all vegan items are clearly marked or they might use honey.
I find it super charming and absolutely delicious each time, very recommended!

Cozy and almost 100% Vegan - Edit

A very good place to have lunch! The only use honey sometimes, so you can have a great vegan meal here.

I always love the combination of three dishes, whole rice and vegetables available.

I also love the apricot mousse!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Whole foods, Delicious desserts

Cons: Small place, Noisy if crowded, Cash only

Convenient and pleasing - Edit

Alfarroba is a very small and cozy "quick meal" type restaurant, located on a lovely street corner of Rua Tomás Ribeiro - a fantastic location in the very central Picoas area. The room is minimally and tastefully decorated and the big windows let in the sun as well as the hustle and bustle of the street.

The place tends to get packed during office lunch hours as many people from the surrounding offices go there to have a quick and rather unexpensive meal. However, if you go between 12:30 and 13:00 you shouldn't have a problem finding a table.

Most main courses are vegan, as well as the accompanying cereals and vegetables. I find that even the somewhat more elaborate dishes at Alfarroba have a very authentic and natural taste, which suits well my preference for less processed and healthier food. Regarding the dessert, I highly recommend the cocoa tartlet which is simply mouth-watering. You can check Alfarroba's Facebook page to learn which dishes are available each day.

I just wish I had a place like this near where I work to be my default place to have lunch!

All is Good Here - Edit

Smasher of a friendly little place serving soups, main dishes, hot and cold drinks and cakes. Good vegan choice and great value meals at around €5-6. There's always a meal of the day along plus a couple of others. On 5th Sept 2014 it was a soya hamburger. The soup was a delicious cream of broccoli at €1.60. There's a good turnaround here and it's popular with the locals as well as workers from the nearby office areas. Bravo. Here here for Alfarroba!!

Pros: Friendly, Value, Cosy

Cons: Limited opening hours

Small Selection Of Well Made Food - Edit

Pleasant small place. Had two menu options on offer when we went. Food was nice and was also cheap.

Not the full restaurant service, but it wasn't trying to be.

Would go again.

Pros: Tasty Food, Cheap

Cons: Choice, Hard To Spot
