Very highly recommended😄

Pros: Clearly labelled vegan options, Traditional Portuguese food, Lovely staff

Appreciate the vegan options

That is the only reason for so many stars. The food was disappointing and tasteless. The waiters forgot my drink and served very old dry bread. The vegan starters are some carrots and olives. The chair was almost broken too, they played a music list of 3 songs on repeat. The wine was too warm, the main course tasteless. Put some peppers over the pasta to make it taste good. Do not go here. There are plenty better options then this. I advice you to go to the burger king and eat the vegan long chicken. Its much better then this crappy restaurant.

the soup is so good!
the staff are really nice. i didn’t like the pizza (i don’t like sourdough and didn’t expect sourdough) but the waiter kindly changed it for me

Pros: 6 clearly listed vegan mains, really nice staff, affordable

Cons: didn’t like the pizza dough

Great option to take a non-vegan

They don't have loads of options, but definitely one of the best veg-options places in the area. Vegan options marked, and they even had a dessert. The service was quite quick when I was there (early September on a Thursday) and the staff were all really nice and very accommodating. It did feel like they got vegan diners in regularly and were keen to make a good impression.

Vegan options super slow service

Had some good vegan options on the menu including vegan pizza that my vegan 12 year old loved. Able to sit together with a family of meat eaters and vegans and everyone enjoyed the food

Just took ages to get served our main meal. We waited over an hours from seating to being served our first course and the restaurant wasn’t that busy!

Great atmosphere

Nice restaurant, outside and inside seating. Several vegan options and staff are knowledgeable about the menu. Very enjoyable dinner. The vegan lasagna was a large serving and filled with veggies (we had a vegetarian with us and they were happy to add dairy cheese to the top at her request) the vegetable soup was a great starter and the Tofu Cataplana was a nice variation of a local classic (normally made with chicken or fish) but a much lighter dish. Desert menu includes a vegan option which was chocolate cake with a side of sorbet (options for us were mango, strawberry and lemon). Overall a very pleasant meal. We also noted a vegan pizza and several sides that could be added to a meal if in need of additional options.

Great wee find

Separate vegan menu, staff keen to make things for us that also weren't on the menu. Such a good price for what you get as well as it's away from the hustle and bustle of the strip. Really enjoyed our meal here.

Reaaaaally enjoyed this place. We ordered soup of the day and they made the garlic bread vegan by using oil instead of butter. For mains we got spring lasagna and penne bolognaise both of which were amazing. The staff were helpful checking what was vegan and what could be made vegan as well. I recommend this place. Its slightly cheaper than other restaurants which is a plus.

Pros: Simple menu, Good prices, Helpful staff

Great Restaurant

Visited here many times on different trips to Portugal and have always enjoyed it. The menu has a small vegan section and all the dishes are great. I’d give 5 stars, if the app allowed it for a non-vegan venue. Guy who runs the place and his staff are always friendly.

Great vegan options

Tasty vegan options. Nice if you want to try some Portuguese dishes they have the Cataplana and the Mil folhas de tofu. Big portions for an affordable price.
