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.
