As a spectacular, vintage art deco building, it is an important sight in Porto. I like the advice of one of the other reviewers to have a cup of tea or perhaps a morning coffee there. We went for lunch and although the food and service were adequate, there are many better restaurants in Porto. We only had a day... More

Interesting historical space for its arquitecture, decoration, and Porto heritage. Absolutely overprice for what you get. Nourishment served equals to a fast food B_g_M_c, but three times more expensive. Food quality and portions complety unbalance. Wisdom in this case is mandatory.

Café Majestic from 1921 right in the center of Porto at the beginning of Rua de Santa Catarina, it is a nice place to have a cup of tea with scones, or a nice meal.

Famously now, this is and art deco cafe where J K Rowling used to write. Pretty well all tourists here. Nevertheless, we went twice, and the food was good (nice fish soup) as was the port. Not cheap for what you get, but you do get a lovely space.

The Cafe Majestic is an experience. Beautiful 1920s art deco interior.Very friendly and accommodating staff. I was told by the concierge at my hotel that it is one of the things you "must do" in Porto. I would agree. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is the price. 30 euros for a simple breakfast... More

This place is an absolute must visit for any trip to Porto. It is like stepping back in time to 1920's café society. Try the French toast and hot chocolate they are amazing. Although more expensive than other cafes it is still very reasonable with breakfast or lunch for 2under €25. We loved it here and visited twice on our... More
