The Terra Restaurante Natural, located in Principe Real, serves an extensive vegetarian/vegan buffet filled with choices including Portuguese and International cuisine. The 18th-century building has a shady dining patio with 100-plus-year-old trees, and the inside is filled with heavy, rustic Portuguese wooden furniture, tiled floors, and blue and white azulejos. The buffet is served on country-style ceramics at a long farm table and include choices such as caldeirada (fish stew), marinated white asparagus, vegetable kebabs, sushi, burritos, and stuffed pastry corn shells with pumpkin. The desserts include arroz doce conventual - sweet rice with cinnamon.
