Vegetarian restaurant and cultural cafe

4 Posted on 04 / 21 / 2014

This is the kind of place I would regularly visit if I lived in Porto. The location is a bit obscure, but that creates a unique kind of atmosphere. It's a place where you can not only eat, but also hang out, have a few drinks, listen to music, and more.

We came on a Saturday night; in addition to lunches during the week days, they offer pizza on Friday and Saturday night. There were six different options, and two of them were vegetarian. The guy working also told us we could mix and match, so get one of the "meat" pizzas but with veggies instead, etc. This kind of flexibility would also allow you to get a vegan pizza, as long as you asked for no cheese.

The food was food, and fresh, and tasty. Two pizzas and two drinks came to less than €20.

Pros: Great view , Tasty and inexpensive food, Laid-back vibe
Cons: Not 100% vegetarian like advertised

Very nice

This were one of the two favourite spots in Porto.
We had lunch. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, the meal was good.
The price had a very good value.
The restaurant is on the top of an old parking deck - very nice.

5 Posted on 08 / 25 / 2013

Sou cliente frequente desde Janeiro,pois fui muito bem recomendado por uma amiga que costuma ir varias vezes, ao contrario de certos comentários que foram feitos nesta pagina,sempre que vou la fui muito bem servido,como a nível alimentar tento sempre uma opção vegan ainda sendo um restaurante vegetariano,há sempre uma opção vegan,e a nível de staff um excelente atendimento,tento sempre um ambiente amigável onde sempre me sinto bem.
Ainda me privilegio de uma vista fantástica.
Recomendo tanto de Dia como a Noite.

Pros: comida fantastica, ambiente amigável , vista fantastica
Cons: nada a dizer

Not so good...

2 Posted on 08 / 20 / 2013

This place was a disaster!!! I had high expectation, l know this place for ages but I went for the first time during April 2013.
So they had no vegan options and we ended up eating vegetarian, not tasteful at all, raw badly prepared food, very small portions (we ended up going eating at some place else after!!! Really!!!). The staff was nice but didn't give any information on how it worked! We didn't even now we could eat dessert... A disaster! There are other amazing option in Porto!! Don't recommend it at all!!! If you want to know Maus Habitos go there by night!

Pros: Location, Classic Oporto's spot
Cons: Overpriced, Small portions, Not helpful staff

my favourite find!

5 Posted on 06 / 15 / 2012

As people have mentioned before, Maus Habitos is on the 4th floor of a garage/carpark.

The eating area has amazing views, and a little courtyard where you can sit outside and eat.

The menu is set and seems to change daily. The staff are really really helpful, and very friendly, its completely vegetarian, and there is always a vegan option too.

The day we went I had a tofu and olive pate with bread, broccoli soup, a rainbow chilli with yellow rice and salad, strawberry and lime juice and coffee for 7.50EUR, 9EURO would give you a dessert.

The food was tasty and fresh, the atmosphere chilled out. There is plenty of info on their website; http://www.maushabitos.com/

They have bands play on an evening, DJ set etc, although I didnt go to any of these.

I wish we had found this sooner.

Pros: beautiful views, fresh food, friendly staff

Good Food

It is a restaurant above a parking house. You can take a lift to the 4th floor. The atmosphere is very nice and friendly. The choice is limited (only one meal), but very good.

Pros: good food, friendly staff

Good Lunch

4 Posted on 07 / 28 / 2011

Maus Habitos is less a restaurant than a club for a bit of an alternative scene, including music in the evenings (Fado even). Not easy to find, it was recommended to us by the hotel we stayed at otherwise you can't 'stumble' upon it... Food is only served during lunchtime. It is a fixed menu of soup, main course and optional desert plus a drink. Only possible choice was between two types of beverage. We enjoyed the food very much in a nice atmosphere (we sat in the inner courtyard). The price is very reasonable for the amount and quality we received.

Pros: price, food, staff
Cons: only lunch

wonderful restaurant

5 Posted on 08 / 07 / 2008

This restaurant is open only during the day. The waitress didn't speak English but she asked another guest to translate for us :-) The food is good and the price is cheap. I strongly recommend this restaurant if you stay in Porto!!!

Pros: price, food

Bad Habits

2 Posted on 06 / 25 / 2008

Called here for lunch on a Saturday. Cafe is situated within a nondescript building. Was told by a man doing some work there that the vegetarian cafe is only open week days for lunch. A shame as there are few options in Porto and this is situated in a busy area.

Pros: central location
Cons: week days only
