Buffet with salad and vegan/vegetarian traditional Portuguese dishes. After a week of limited options on the road, this was a welcomed treat for those who don’t eat animals. Loved it!

Pros: Great service, Delicious food, Indoor and outdoor dining

Buffet limitativo

A comida é boa, mas o buffet é limitativo.
Só nos podemos servir uma vez e o prato onde se come é que vai determinar o preço.
Prato pequeno com preço fixo, prato normal é pago ao kg. Quem quiser repetir alguma coisa, seja a quantidade que for, tem de pagar novamente o valor total...ou do prato ou ao kg. É indicado para quem coma muito pouco ou para quem esteja disponível para gastar muito.

The food is good, but the buffet is limited. We can only serve once and the dish it comes will determine the price you pay. Small dish with fixed price, normal dish is paid by the kg. Anyone who wants to repeat something, whatever the quantity, has to pay the full amount again...either by the dish or by the kg. It is indicated for those who eat very smal quantities or for those who are willing to spend a lot.

Pros: Local sossegado. Pouco ruído

Cons: Forma como preços cobrados são defindidos

Good and efficient

A small restaurant with a self-service buffet. Somewhere around 6/8 starters, same number of main courses, and a few deserts. You pay according to the weight of what you take (under 10€ probably for most people). It made for a good and efficient break during our visit of Evora.

Most food is vegan, and mostly clearly labelled. Staff is super friendly and helpful.
A very reasonably priced place with plenty of choice, and menu varies regularly.

Pros: Plenty of vegan options , Super friendly staff , Best selection of vegan food in Évora

Real tasteful self service restaurant

The food was absolutely great and there was so much to choose. You pay for the weight you eat (or a fixed price for a smaller plate). I recommend to go for the big plate and taste a lot of the different delicious food. Not everything is vegan, but the personnel will explain what everything is.

Pros: A lot of options, Very tasteful , Good price VS quality

Everything tastes the same

Is is the only vegetarian restaurant in Évora so I ended up going a few times. It is buffet style food but the food always tastes the same because they use the same seasoning for everything.

Pros: Good for one single visit , The only vegetarian place in town

Cons: Everything tastes the same

Oasis for vegans/vegetarians!

Pros: Lots of vegetables , Great prices, Good wine

Vegetarian buffet in Évora

All the food was great! Especially a corn purée they had on the day!
The menu changes daily and there is an option to pay a fixed price (6,7€) and you get a plate that you can fill as much as you like or you can get a bigger plate, fill it with the food you want and pay by the weight (16,5€/kg)
A must visit if you are in Évora!

מסעדה צמחונית - טבעונית

מסעדה בסגנון בופה, צמחונית- טבעונית, רוב המאכלים טבעוניים. אוכל ביתי טעים. מחיר לצלחת קטנה 6.70 יורו וגדולה 17 יורו. לטעמנו המחיר לא מצדיק את הגדולה, לקחנו 2 צלחות קטנות עמוסות בתבשילים ומיץ רענן שהשביעו את רצוננו. האוכל טעים, בעל המקום נחמד ומזמין. המקום היחיד שמצאנו באבורה שהציע מגוון אופציות צמחוניות טבעוניות. סך הכל טעים ומזמין!

Delicious food, great staff and a good price

The owner founded the restaurant in 2008 and thinks it is what the planets needs and also that it is good for the animals and ourselves (our health).

You pay according to weight and you can go again and again. The food is delicious and you will probably end up eating to much. Lots of vegan options and delicious desserts. This is the only pure vegetarian/vegan place in this beautiful place Evora. You will not be dissapointed.

Dont let the pallets outside mislead you because inside is a great restaurant where the cooks cook with their heart and respect for the planet.

Pros: Delicous food, More than a fair price., Nice people and great personal service

Best Place To Eat In Évora

Rating: 7.5/10

When I was studying in Évora, Salsa Verde was my go-to when I wanted to eat out. The location is good, on one of the most popular streets in Évora. The enviornment is great, very peaceful and relaxing. The decoration is simple yet pleasant. The staff is very polite.
There are many vegan options but not all of them are well-identified, so you may have to ask the waiter. The food is always delicious, very tasty with strong flavours (in a good way), and there's a big variety to choose from. The desserts are really good too, the mango cake being my favourite one.

Note: I've been there multiple times and will keep coming back. Last time I visited was in 2022

Pros: Delicious food with large variety, location, friendly staff

Cons: Vegan options aren't always well-identified
