In this post, I have gathered my favorite restaurants in Albufeira that serve some delicious vegetarian dishes. Being vegetarian in the Algarve can be pretty challenging as most restaurants focus mainly on meat and fish dishes. It is, however, getting better with the growing demand for vegetarian food.
Vegetarian sushi at Sushi & Wine
Sushi & Wine is my favorite spot for sushi in Albufeira. The sushi is fresh and delicious with creative flavors and presentations. The spot has a lovely terrace overlooking the boat at the Albufeira Marina.
Homemade flavours at Veggie Café
The Veggie Café is a local spot serving healthy homemade food. They offer an extensive menu with plenty of vegan and vegetarian dishes to choose from. During lunch, you can enjoy their set menu with soup, a dish of the day and tea for 9eur.
Delicious Italian food at Trattoria Toscana
Italian food is always a good option for vegetarian food. There are plenty of Italian restaurants in Albufeira. Unfortunately, many of them serve overpriced food with bland flavours. For authentic Italian cuisine head to Trattoria Toscana to enjoy delicious pizza and pasta with beautiful sea views.
Something for everyone at O Marinheiro
O Marinheiro is my favorite restaurant for dinner, cozy setting, great service, and creative dishes. Their main focus is fish and meat but they also offer a few well-cooked vegetarian dishes. O Marinheiro is a good option when you are a big group with different food wishes. The restaurant is located in the Sesmarias area, slightly outside downtown Albufeira.
Vegetarian Indian dishes at Clay Oven and Mother India
Indian cuisine is also a safe choice for vegetarians, with plenty of vegetarian dishes to choose from. Many people prefer the Clay Oven, a slightly more upscale spot that is usually very busy. I personally prefer the food at Mother India which is a more basic restaurant but with great flavours.
Vegetarian meze at Greek Pita Gourmet
Greek Pita Gourmet offers appetising mezze-like starters and dishes like hummus, tzatziki, grilled halloumi, greek filo parcels, greek salad and more. Here you can enjoy authentic Greek flavours and friendly service.
I hope you like the tips and I wish you a wonderful time in the Algarve.
