“Go for the ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

A historic old place, perfectly maintained and very well frequented. A must-see in Porto, we had a small lunch consisting of tiny but tasty sandwiches. Overall a bit pricey but you pay for and enjoy the historic ambience.

“Touristy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

The cafe was beautifully decorated. It is located perfectly on a shopping street. They had a pretty large menu selection. I just didn't like what I got.

“Historic cafe, great cakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Stopped for coffee and a pasteis de nata (custard filled tart) - without doubt the best that we ate during our trip to Porto! We were there just after noon and there were plenty of spare tables. In one of the main shopping streets of the town so great place to relax after some shopping

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Surroundings are what you pay for here, we had a quick lunch here, but it was packed out, service was attentive, and the food and particularly the drink were good. Loved the white port!

“It's a trap!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

The location is nice and got our attention pretty quick. It was very crowded and we had to wait to get a table. Service was ok and friendly. We ordered some snacks and some drinks. The drinks were fine but the food was no value for money. We had to wait really long for our food and after we got it, it was disappointing. The at €6 priced hot dog was not meeting our expectations. A bun, a cut open sausage, a slice of ham, a slice of cheese and and a tea spoon of mustard. Also the fancy announced Majestic Burger with fries did not meet to our expectations. For €7 you might think it would be a special burger, but it was a deception. Just a small burger and the amount fries... well you could actually count the fries on two hands.
We went away with the feeling we got ripped off for nearly € 40 for 3 burgers, a hotdog and 4 drinks! Still hungry and not satisfied Later that evening we ate at Cafe Java for the same amount of money and we were really stuffed! Majestic cafe is good for drinks, but avoid the snacks!
