“Nice but not exceptional”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Would not say it is worthy of note for delicious gastronomy (as desserts and coffee there are mediocre), but sure for its interior and atmosphere. There are always crowds of people so do not wait for a fancy table and capture the first vacant U see :)

“Cafe Majestic,Porto.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

You're really paying for the surroundings here! It was €2.50 for an espresso here, and you can get a nice one up the street for €0.60! Staff weren't overly friendly and it stinks of a tourist trap! I don't think i'd bother returning here if I was ever back in Porto, go once for the experience and go elsewhere next time for cheaper and nicer coffee!

“A 'Must visit' when in Porto”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Charming , old world cafe. A Must visit for all visitors to Porto , overpriced by fine for a tea/coffee and cake. Gets very touristy with groups just walking in taking photos , using the bathroom and leaving without buying anything , but still worth the visit.

“very pretty, but below average food”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

It's in a great location and a pretty restaurant. Not worth spending any money on food. Have some coffee and go somewhere else food.

“Go for the ambience”
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.
