We’re back a year later and Alef’s remains the best burger in Faro. They’ve opened up a new bigger location just around the corner. It fits many more but we still sat outside. Everything we said before still stands. And we’ll probably go back again...More

If you want to have a tasty moment, Alef Burger Bar is the best choice! We have lots of delicious and homemade beef Hamburgers, Very delicious Vegan Burger. after 4 persons, you need a reservation.please be aware that this place is not a fast food place and nothing is pre-prepared in this restaurant and everything is fresh and homemade, also the kitchen staff start making each burger by each order such as making the patty, cutting vegetables and so on it means that in this restaurant we try to serve the freshest food so because of all these reasons during the rush hours serving burger takes 30 to 45 min (depends on the numbers of orders). I hope to see you soon in our house.
