the place has potential and after reading the reviews i was excited to visit, but it did not reach my expectations. I think we must've gone too late in the day (around 2-3pm) as the salad bar was almost empty and despite it being a buffet, they started packing up as soon as we got our first plate. The food...

I wasn't sure if I was hungry so I tried a fruit juice and it really got my tastebuds going! Then I had the buffet lunch and everything from the buffet was delicious. We sat outside in the shade and it was really what we needed to feel rejuvenated! So fresh and tasty. We had a warm friendly greeting, the... More

Buffet style lunch; a choice from about 5 hot dishes, soup and an additional salad option. Eat as much as you like for a great price.

Found this quaint little restaurant in the heart of Faro Healthy, fresh vegetarian buffet, the apple and red cabbage coleslaw is lovely as well as the vegetable coriander soup, great to pop in for a lunch and a fresh orange juice while exploring old town

Small little restaurant with two nice waiters. The concept is clear: only healthy food. You do not get a coke there! Buffet was great, the food was tasty and the smoothies we got were made fresh. Go there and enjoy.

Gengibre e Canela is one of the many cosy living room restaurants you can find in Faro. Only open for lunch, you can have a really well prepared and good tasting vegetarian lunch (buffet style), with most splendid home prepared & -spiced fruit juice mixtures on the side. Plenty of food, and what is left after lunch will go to... More

The best veggie restaurant in Faro. Only opened for lunch with a rich buffet where you can eat a bit of everything!! The food is delicious! And they have homemade juices that are spectacular. It is a small restaurant in the center of faro which makes it difficukt for large groups. Should definitely try it if you go to faro

Although the food is razonable regarding taste it's very limited regarding the choice!!! Also it's indicated for lonely persons or couples - not indicated for groups of 4 or more..... as the silence is an imperative on this space! Also the service - that I believe were made by the owners - was not friendly and polite as it should... More
