Un pequeño gran Restautante - Edit

Si ya es difícil conseguir un sitio con las tres B, aquí lo logran con holgura, porque en más que bueno es excelente, más que bonito encantador y más que barato es muy barato. La carta es corta pero muy buena, la amabilidad del personal es de otra época y si se tiene la suerte de poder comer en la azotea en un día de sol, ya no se puede pedir más! Para repetir, sin duda alguna

Pros: la amabilidad del personal, la tranquilidad del sitio , la calidad de la comida

Cons: notara personas con movilidad reducida no es muy a

Great food and charming location - Edit

Small and cozy place with very friendly and attentive service and very good food. There is a small set of daily specials to choose from, and all but one dish (including dessert!) were vegan. Funny little building with dining on several floors, with a great covered but open-air terrace on the top floor.

Pros: Great tasting dishes and nearly all vegan, inexpen

Cons: None

Absolutley Delightful - Edit

This is a beautifully restored old Portuguese house in the middle of Portimao.Run by a delightful couple who care passionately about good food,cook everything between them and even grow some of the produce in their own garden.
Nearly everything they make is vegan,we ate a tasty tofu stew and bean meatballs in delicate sauce.Both delicious.
Both partners have immaculate English and make time to converse with you.The whole meal,the people and the surroundings made for a wonderful experience.Extremely reasonable prices,we look forward to going back. xx

Pros: Too many to mention

Cons: None that I can think of!!

As Fresh as a Mint Leaf in a Mojito - Edit

Set in a truly gorgeous narrow and high building with a delightful roof terrace at the top offering a great vista over the town. We sat in what I named 'the White room' on the second floor. A beautifully decorated dining room with a patio window seat. To start we had a freshly prepared platter consisting of a side salad with fig, cucumber and a crisp bread topped with tomatoes. Whilst it didn't look too inspiring it really was delicious. The fig and cucumber were exceptional. It's not often you hear that about cucumber. A soft flour salt very soft in texture and recommended by staff provided a very welcome seasoning. The two main courses were served separately. First a mixed tofu kebab served with roasted tomatoes and courgettes. Second a lightly spiced mixed vegetable curry with plenty of turmeric and perhaps fenugreek. Both dishes were very good, hugely appreciated and earthly tasty. A couple of glasses of white wine fulfilled the occasion. At €24 this was excellent value. I was very tempted to try a Portuguese organic gin with tonic. Definitely next time. This is a place that I could imagine being a diamond at night. May I take the opportunity now to say that we returned a week later for a G&T and a glass of organic sangria. They were both excellent and it was nice to meet the lovely staff again. Easily 8/10 4 Happy Cow stars. I would like to come back at night sometime to maybe confirm a 5 star rating.

Pros: lovely building, friendly staff, great vegan options

Beautiful building - Edit

The restaurant itself is very impressive, the building is beautiful and the interior is fresh with a little bit of minimalism and some antique related quirkiness added in. The food is very good and staff are extremely friendly. This is a place I love and want to come back to for more.

Pros: building , friendly , vegan food

Cute little place with a nice rooftop terrace. Really friendly staff! - Edit

The food was delicious, staff super friendly and they recomended us places to see in portimao. Me and my boyfriend had the most delicious veggie balls we've ever tasted, they were so juicy and had a delicious sause on them. We also had roasted tofu which was really good, and tofu skewers wich were not so good, in our opinion they were a bit boring. Really cosy place with a nice rooftop terrace. The only con was that the meals was not served with any carbs like potatoes, rice or bread (but you could add it if you wanted it)

Amazing!!! - Edit

We recently stayed not far from this place & found it using this app. We visited it twice in the week we was in Portimao & can not fault it at all! The food was amazing, the Homemade juices were spot on & the service was excellent. We ate on the roof terrace both times & loved it. Our 14 month old vegan toddler gave it his seal of approval. A must if you're in the area!

Pros: Very good vegan food at a very good price

Cons: None
