First Review by Lupenta

super - Edit

Een zeer aangename verrassing ! Vegan eten is niet altijd makkelijk te vinden, maar dit was echt geweldig. Lekker, ruime keus, goede sfeer, aardige bediening. Daarnaast steunen zij ook nog eens een dierenasiel waarvoor je een donatie kan doen. Wij komen zeker terug !

Unmet expectations - Edit

Having read all the reviews we had high expectations of this restaurant, however we were left very disappointed with the service and fully agree with the last review before mine.

We had to wait a long time to be seated and stood in the doorway for 5-10 minutes. Even a polite glance and nod would have helped our patience but we didn't even get that.

On taking a seat a chalk board was left for us to look at, which is a unique feature of the restaurant. No staff interacted with us or spoke to us about the menu. We ordered our food and had the trio of hummus to start which was amazing. We had to wait a long time for our mains to brought out which were the veg pies and salad and ratatouille. The food was delicious and we finished it off with the peanut butter and raspberry chocolate cake which I thought was incredible but my bf wasn't keen on.

We did try to interact with the staff, and with Chicca, as we saw her chatting to other guests and telling them about the food. We were very disappointed considering we spent €60 here.

We had to wait a long time for the bill and when I asked politely a second time (after about 10 minutes) I was snapped at.

The breadth of the menu when we first arrived got us thinking we would return the next 2 nights of our stay in Luz, but after this experience we drove out to Lagos to eat instead which is a shame for my bf who had to drive.

We also found this place contradictory... #loveanimals but meat all over the menu?!

The only reason it has 2 stars is because the food on it's own was so good.

Unusual as a vegan. - Edit

I had high expectations for Chiccas. Unfortunately, I left disappointed. It is a restaurant full of contradiction.

Upon our arrival, we were met by our server who didn't engage us at all. Instead she dropped off a chalk board menu (see picture) unceremoniously. Our orders were quickly taken, and our food delivered without any interaction. The food itself was good, but overpriced versus other establishments in the region and the rest of the country. I would not describe it as good value for money.

Despite the servers all wearing #loveanimals on their t-shirts, meat abounds on the menu. They have signs against animal testing and use vegan soaps, but "spare ribs" are the first entree available. I don't get it.

Based on the fact I left smelling like meat, I have to give it 2*

Pros: vegan options

Cons: service, meat

Flavours out of this world - Edit

I came here whilst on holiday, as a vegan in Luz, looking forward to some real food and BOY! Was I not disappointed! The fact even their soap in the toilets is animal friendly put me at ease knowing what I was going to be eating was vegan through and through.

I had a delicious tart and a selection of salads which were out of this world. Left me very full, but having not had anything sweet (other than port) for a while had to have some vegan chocolate cake. The staff were very happy to pack the rest of the cake for me to take away as there was no way I was going to finish it.

Note: To start you are given bread and you are charged for this despite not ordering.

Pros: Friendly, cheery staff, Labelled vegan, Amazing quality of food

fantastic food selection , quality and service - Edit

Chicca's is as good as the previous descriptions. The queues outside were a testament to the quality of everything about the establishment. Went with 9 blokes on a golf holiday. All were really happy and many went for the wonderful veggie and vegan options. Great to have such a good restaurant in Luz together with the passion that the staff always convey.

Jewel of the Algarve - Edit

This beautiful restaurant really surprised me with its amazing menu....... I think a lot of restaurants in tourist destinations can find it hard to sustain enthusiasm. Chicca's was amazing on many levels, the passion and pride that the owner Chicca shows in her restaurant, food and staff was refreshing. The food was wonderful and Chicca is happy to explain what has gone into the creation of her dishes. I had vegan antipasto which was sautéed shitake mushrooms and various organic salads, then pumpkin tart with ratatouille then vegan chocolate cake and coffee with almond milk!!!! Great staff, lovely atmosphere, highly recommend this restaurant and looking forward to going back in the summer.

Pros: Beautiful food, Great staff and atmosphere

I've been Vegan for about a year now and finding a Vegan restaurant in our area is very difficult, but Chiccas is our new found treasure in the last 2 months I've been 3 times once on Valentine's night once with friends and the 3rd time with a party of 11 people for my Birthday! Incredibly delicious food, so many flavors and dishes to choose from, and how better to be served than from an ambassador for healthy eating CHICCA has made her restaurant our place to go, she's brilliant at what she does and her food is superb! I'd recommend it over any restaurant in the Algarve!

Pros: Vegan, All organic produce, Supports animal sanctuary

We were amazed at the selection available!
We had spicy lentil salad with avocado, then trio of vegan pate's. Our main couse blew our minds!!
Roasted pumpkin puff and so many salads! Too much !! The owner also raises money for charity and we bought a E.F shopping bag to help shelter animals.
A great VIBE, lovely restaurant. Ooohhhh, and AMAZING vegan chocolate cake! OMG!!
Really the nicest place.!
Chicca's even has the Original source bathroom soaps and handcreams and only uses cuelty free LUSH poducts.
Promotes Vegan! Great place! No reservations :/ closed saturdays .
A bit small and cramped but friendly staff !!

Best restaurant in Lagos is now full of vegan options. AMAZING FOOD AND ATMOSPHERE! - Edit

You can't visit the Algarve and not have dinner at Chicca's. There are lots of vegan dishes and desserts, and all of them are simply delicious. 10 out of 10, and Chicca is more than nice. She and her staff will make you happy for a night via your mouth and your stomach :D

Pros: Lots of vegan dishes, Delicious desserts and cakes , Great atmosphere

Cons: It is not in my hometown, Happy cow does not allow to rate it 5 stars:(
