closed - Edit

I think that Alfarroba is closed already since some few years (3-4 I guess)

porque tenho que por um titulo - Edit

lembro-me de ter vindo a este restaurante ah uns valentes anos atraz, perdia muito por ser macrobiotico (ou seja: tambem tinha crustacios no menu) mas ganhava bastante pelo mercadinho e pelo apoio á malta que fazia tofu/seitan caseiro. visualmente era um espaço bastante agradavel mas a comida não foi algo que ficasse na memoria do paladar, porém gostaria de lá voltar agora que o vegetarianismo se entranhou no meu sangue mas parece que está fechado. pelo que leva um rating de 3, o que é positivo

Very weak - Edit

They had chips from package, they were already soft due to air exposure. Soup wasn't good, no seasoning. I don't like to be so negative, but I've never been in such a bad restaurant. Price doesn't match quality at all.

Pros: Waiters

Cons: beverages, no fresh ingredients, decoration/place

Very unsatisfiying - Edit

Went there with a voucher to eat a Francesinha, a portuense traditional dish (altough many restaurants try to create a vegetarian version) but I got completely spin off, so, there were no potatoes, the portion was actually really small, I had to ask for bread, and even after that, I still got hungry.

Maybe the other options available might be better, the food was not bad, but it wasn't that good.
Possibly won't come back because I felt totally fooled with the price payed and the amount / quality of what i was served.

Also the place is running inside a shopping, so it's not really the best ambient.

Pros: Location (central porto)

Cons: Quality / quantity for price
