Only 2 vegan options - Edit

When I was in Porto I was surprised by how many places looked vegan on the outside but weren’t really. It was hard to explain there was a difference between vegan and vegetarian. Anyway, I end up in this restaurant which looked appealing to me, it had very funny pictures on the walls but there were not many choices for vegan people, so I had a soup, which was pretty good. But I would have loved to have something more solid!!

Pros: Quality and taste

Cons: They need a bigger vegan selection!!

Could be better - Edit

For a vegetarian restaurant, to have vegan options it's always good. They had two dishes, seitan with sweet potato and soy and mushroom "meatless balls" with spaghetti, although the lady wasn't quite sure if the second one had egg or not. The seitan was okay but not very flavourful - a bit pricey for the quality I'd say. The lady taking orders was very friendly and helpful. Would give it another chance.

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: A bit pricey for quality

It's ok - Edit

They didn't have a lot of vegan options. I had to explain that I didn't want any cheese nor milk nor eggs. They charged me the full price for a plate with the only three vegan things they had (brown rice, a cabbage dish and mushrooms). The food wasn't bad, but nothing especial. I would rather pay a bit (just a bit) more and eat in the nearby DaTerra.

Pros: big plate

Cons: not a lot of vegan options

Lacks personality - Edit

Been there a few times over the years, since ovo-lacto-vegetarian since it was one of the first and only (ovo-lacto)vegetarian spots in Boavista while it is still open, others have closed. So I can't recall if there are many vegan options, altough they change daily (and have some fixed a la carte options).
The food is OK, not really great, the space lacks personalization and it's inside a shopping center (on the last floor), near pizza hut and meat grills and other awful places / smells.
The price is no bad for the daily menu, but it could be better, the food quality should be better.

Pros: City center (Boavista), Still open (for years)

Cons: Shopping, Quality, Smell of meat from other restaurants
