Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolute in love with this place 🥰 What amazing variety of vegan and veggie options 😋 Served up and cooked by the loveliest couple 💜 We had muhamarra dip (packed with that lovely Smokey oven roasted red pepper sweetness) with veggie balls, oven baked and stuffed portobello mushrooms (poss my fave up there with the dip), garlic padron peppers, stout mushroom and veggie pot pie with mash and vegan apple crumble to (just about) finish. I couldn’t believe it when I saw the menu, with so much to choose from. You’ll find creative dishes packed with flavour and clearly cooked with love. There is a lot of worldly influence - everything from Mexican to British to Syrian to Indian. Even the burger options are impressive! Normally I find that the starters exceed the mains or vice versa, or the pudding tops it all. But here every single dish was a real delight. Oh - and if there is something you fancy that’s not on the menu, the chef is very flexible! Just let her know preferably in advance so she can prepare. The setting is down one of the side streets in the pretty moorish town of Silves. And the hosts are the warmest, most humble people. Highly recommend, will be bringing our friends and family back very soon and already can’t wait! Thanks so much for feeding us Ashley and Marina, we LOVE Parsley and Thyme 💚🪴💚

Our family enjoyed lunch here this week, and we were glad to find a restaurant in Silves that catered predominantly for vegetarian and vegan eaters. Generally, there is little choice for such tastes in a mainly meat/fish eating country. Situated in a quiet street, conveniently located a few meters from the main road through Silves, the owner made us feel very welcome and the tapas/main menu choices were fresh, creative and presented very well. The service was good and all the food that was served to us was lovely. After some delicious tapas, I opted for the veggie burger and jacket wedges main. It was delicious and served with a great salad and a delicious, spicy pickle. I didn’t really have room for the home-made fruit crumble and vegan ice cream, but I’m glad that I did! We will definitely be back, and intend to try the Sunday roast lunch. Highly recommended restaurant!

I have eaten here a few times and Ashley on front of house and his wonderfully talented wife in the kitchen create a fully authentic, seasonal and freshly cooked gastronomical experience to please all dietary restrictions. Definitely a must visit and likely to become your regular. Really amazing 🙏🏼 thank you 🙏🏼

A hidden gem. This restaurant is one of a kind for vegetarian and vegan cuisine in Silves. The service was impeccable and the owner couldn’t have been more welcoming and attentive. The highlights of the menu for me were the stuffed portobello mushroom and the crumble for dessert. We will certainly be returning.

My wife is gluten free and we’re both vegetarian, usually it’s difficult to get a restaurant that has a good selection of food to suit us both. This was the first place we saw in Silves after walking down one of the streets and it was amazing. Great owner and the best choice of food which was clearly explained to us on the day. We had the Indian tapas to share and even the onion baji was gluten free which was something that surprised us they aren’t we’re we live. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Silves.

I never come away disappointed when I visit this restaurant, for meat eaters it’s always a surprise to discover how satisfying fresh, seasonally cooked and local produce can taste without the meat. Catering for gluten free, vegetarians and vegans is a tall order but this place always manages to deliver. Highly recommended.

We went as a party of 6 to celebrate a birthday. The food was freshly cooked, amazing quality with a great range of food. I’m dairy intolerant so the vegan cheese cream and ice cream with glorious puds was a real treat! We enjoyed a range of tapas to share dishes as well as people choosing and sharing a dish. Everyone agreed, it was the best food we’ve eaten in terms of veggie/ vegan since being in the Algarve in Portugal where we live! This is a new restaurant only open 6weeks hence the shortage of reviews. We will be going on a Sunday next time booking a Sunday lunch!

We were looking for lunch and wanted a vegetarian tapas. The owner was very helpful with suggestions with what to have, we made our choice and was very pleased with. Our dog even got a bowl of water. We recommend you try this little eating house.

Eating at Parsley & Thyme is an unique experience. The service is super friendly and polite - just a delight. You will get detailed and individual recommendations for your food and even your holiday. The food is just delicious, we can highly recommend the Muhammara pâte, the Evergreen Burger, the Enchiladas and the ice cream (macadamia and caramel🤤). The prices are more than fair. On top of that, they play good music. All in all, highly recommended!

We have been to this restaurant several times and never had a bad dish. There is a huge amount of care and attention goes into every meal and all have been delicious. It is all vegetarian with just about every option available to be made vegan. My husband is not vegetarian and it is one of his favourite restaurants so don't let the lack of meat or fish dissuade you, the taste makes up for it.

Delighted that all the reviews are so positive and totally echo my view. I'm a strict vegan and was visiting Silves during the Medieval Festival; there was not one vegan or even vegetarian food stall. Overhearing my conversation with someone about this just round the corner from their venue, the owner/chef came up to me, took me by the hand and led me to her restaurant and re-opened it especially for us so that we could eat. Their kindness was so moving. Needless to say, the food is delicious as described by all the other reviews. We came back again the next day and ate there again. I honestly can't recommend them enough for both the quality and taste of the food and for their amazing hospitality.

We actually went here to see a friend of ours play, but got a big surprise when we ordered food. You might be of the opinion that veg/vegan tapas is not for you, but if so you'd be missing out. The food was absolutely brilliant ,served by the lovely proprietors in a really nice venue ,tucked away just off the main street. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed !

So happy with this place in Silves as it is hard to find good vegetarian food in Portugal. The food is a pleasure for all senses! Even my partner who loves meat on his plate, said his vegan burger was one of the best meals he ever had. The desserts are delicious.

We live in Silves and over our many years residency here we have eaten literally in hundreds of restaurants but, for me, this is my first venture into "vegan" food. To say it was spectacular is an understatement. Incredible food and service from front of house joint owner Riz and the amazing culinary skills of Marina made our visit there one to savour. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Needless to say we will return.
