Amazing vegan dish

I always loved this restaurant before I went vegan so I was delighted to find out that they had vegan options. I was so impressed with the chef's recommended seitan with risotto. It was so delicious! The menu also highlighted which wines were vegan and also two vegan desserts.

Pros: Vegan wine options, Tasty dish, Vegan dessert

Nice place

Lovely setting but a lot of flies buzzing around (not the restaurants fault I know, but annoying none the less). A few vegan options including starters, mains and desserts! I went the the mushroom tempura starter, loved it! Very tasty but that was the best part of the meal for me unfortunately. I had the seitan steak with miso with the risotto as my main and just found it way too heavy on the miso it was extremely salty, for my taste anyway. The risotto it came with was nice though. I had raw chocolate cake to finish which was ok. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. Would visiting again but I would void the main I had this time.

Pros: Good Options inc. starter, main and dessert, nice setting

Cons: a lot of flies

Great experience

Over the course of my meal I tried the tomato bruschetta, the orange tofu (after seeing so many rave reviews on here) and finished with the vegan cake. The cake itself wasn’t described on the menu, I imagine it regularly changes.

I didn’t ask what the cake was and decided to embrace the surprise of it. I was delighted to receive some sort of Snickers-esque peanut and chocolate brownie with a peanut caramel sauce and raspberry sorbet on the side.

I really enjoyed all three courses and if needing to persuade meat eating friends, the rest of my table all opted for meat or fish dishes which all looked good and I was informed were tasty.

I had the orange tofu but there’s also lots of other options too (I am a fussy vegan) I would really recommend the atmosphere/ food/ staff! I’m so impressed!

Incredible vegan food!

This restaurant has a handful of vegan options that are all so incredible! I’m not a huge fan of seitan but the waiter recommended it so decided to give it a try. It was hands down THE best seitan I’ve ever had! It’s homemade and the process take 14 hours. Incredible. I’d give this restaurant 5 stars if I could. They also have vegan desserts. Eat here!

Pros: Many vegan options and vegan dessert

Best vegetarian restaurant in Alvor

They have an amazing vegetarian/vegan selection of food, I had the chef special of miso marinated seitan with mushrooms and black rice - literally so good! The staff are super friendly too and made me feel so welcome. If you’re vegetarian I highly recommend the fruit crumble- to die for, amazing!

Pros: Healthy vegan and vegetarian options , Waiters are so friendly and attentive , Delicious and hearty portions

High recommendation!

It tasted like they would cook only vegan food. We had a very good starter with portobello mushrooms and as main dish tofu with a fantastic basilic-orange sauce and one with a homemade seitan steak mushroom- onion sauce. Very friendly staff. High recommendation, when you are in the area.

Pros: Many vegan options

Cons: -

Tasty vegan options

We visited here 3 times on our stay, both the 2 vegan options were very tasty, the tofu option may leave you needing you a little bit more but if you have a starter you should be fine. The staff were very friendly and they genuinely wanted to know how we enjoyed our vegan meals. Great place to come to if travelling with different dietary requirements.

Pros: Interesting vegan options

Service was efficient and friendly until near end of meal but overall highly recommended

Comemos muito bem!!!

Fomos jantar.
O espaço é muito agradável, harmonioso e confortável. O serviço excelente: rápido, calmo e simpático!
Pedimos bruschettas para entrada (estavam óptimas!!!)
Na ementa três opções vegan: salada com tofu e quinoa, bife de seitan e um prato de tofu com especiarias. Estava tudo muito saboroso e com uma excelente apresentação! Para sobremesa provámos o sorvet vegan de coco e banana ( estava bom, mas podia estar melhor...).
Gostámos bastante e será sem dúvida uma opção a repetir durante as férias no Alvor!

Pros: Comida saborosa, Serviço excelente

Cons: Preço

Best tofu in my life

A very nice restaurant. Beautifully located near the sea at a nice street to watch people. The food was excellent. Also the service. They have three explicit vegetarian dishes and one vegan. I had the tofu which tasted fantastic.
The service was quick, attentive and friendly.
A high recommendation. I would have given five stars of it would be possible.

Pros: Very good food. Beautiful location.

Cons: Non
