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

Walking in not knowing what to expect! Found a delicious veggie lunch buffet. I think it was maybe 8 euro for the lunch special, had salad, hot mains and a dessert was optional. The food had great flavor. It was a quick spot where a lot of local business people on their lunches dropped in and out. Great for dining... More

Food here is excellent, great salad and mains full of flavour. Too bad this place is only open for lunch would have eaten here more often if they had dinner too. A must visit for vegatarians and non vegatarias as a very enjoyable experience.

We had a very tasty vegetarian lunch - there is a great selection of salads, curries and quiches and you help yourself. It's simple and excellent value. I'd just like to note though, that this isn't the only place for vegetarians in Faro - in fact there are quite a few veggie/vegan restaurants and we loved them all!

Probably the only vegetarian resraurant in Faro. The place is not too large , approximately 10 / 12 tables. The staff is efficient and very helpful. Style: buffet. If the choice of food is limited, the quality is fantastic: very tasty and fresh.we were a family group of 7 including children who had their first experience of vegetarian food, adults... More
