First Review by RubyFriel

Excellent - Edit

Merci pour cet endroit si délicieux ou j'ai pu trouver tellement de bonnes choses vegan tout en mangeant sur une balançoire :-)
Je rêve d'avoir ce genre de restaurant à la cuisine gourmande, variée et végétalienne en France.
Merci

vegan Portuguese food - Edit

Good vegan selection with different types of vegan substitutes for traditional Portuguese dishes. I chose the curry with seitan option and it was tasty.

Quite expensive though, compared to other restaurants offering the non-vegan version but maybe this is to be expected

Délicieux - Edit

Le cadre est sympa. Le buffet salé est à volonté et quasiment entièrement vegan, presque aucun dessert ne l'est par contre. Généralement déçus de la qualité des buffets, nous avons trouvé celui ci excellent.

Pros: Beaucoup d'options véganes

Cons: Peu de desserts végans

Almost Vegan! - Edit

This place is amazing! The food is very tasty and almost everything on the buffet menu was vegan!

They have managed to incorporate Portuguese flavors into vegan/vegetarian dishes in a way that no other veggie restaurant has.

Check this place out if you can, it is worth it.

Enjoy!

Pros: Free tea, Variety of food, Friendly staff and good location

Cons: Closed on MONDAYS!!!

Boys Keep Swinging - Edit

This was an enjoyable buffet experience in Porto. Not sensational, but very satisfying. Lots of choice of both cold and hot items. On the day of our visit on 13 Abril 2017 everything was vegan. Brucie Bonus!! Higher or lower than a King? Selected highlights were the lasagne and bean burgers. I'm sure they change things around during the week though. I love the swing seats at the window but you just have to be that extra careful with your knife & fork.

Pros: great food , lots of vegan options , friendly

Not the best, not the worst - Edit

It is well located but the food is not great. I feel it is something anyone can do at home easily... but still you get a good meal!
The one thing that bothered me is that I had the feeling the staff wasn't very well treated. Might be only my impression but made me not want to go back there again...

Pros: A lot of vegan options!!!

Cons: I feel it's a bit expensive for what they have to

Needs to improve a bit - Edit

The place has very cool swing-seats, but the buffet is quite poor and bland. The only thing I really enjoyed was the spaghetti with bechamel and the samosas, but I couldn’t find the tiny sushi pieces I read about. Plus the franceshina which you can see in the ad is not included in the buffet, you need to order it apart. The 2 cakes they had (cheesecake and banofee pie) were VEGETARIAN, so I could not finish my meal with a sweet ending. (There was some vegan chocolate mousse though)
It is quite similar to Da Terra (7,50€) but way more expensive (11’50€)

Pros: Swing seats

Cons: Expensive, Just 1 vegan dessert, no cakes, Very little selection

Francesinha óptima :) - Edit

O espaço é agradável, assim como a comida. Têm um buffet simpático e variado e a francesinha vegan é boa. O único ponto menos positivo é o preço, mas a nível geral recomendo :)

Super resto ! - Edit

Restaurant très agréable. Nous avons mangé au comptoir avec vue sur la rue assis sur les balançoires. Au menu, buffet géant froid, plats chauds (soupe, riz, feijoada, seitan strogonoff, nems de légumes)..

Pros: La nourriture y est excellente !

Need To Make Fresh Food At Night - Edit

I have a feeling the food was not good here due to the fact that I ate here at 8 pm, and it seems like the food was made many hours before. A friend said she at here at lunch, and it was pretty good.

The sushi was extremely dry and tasteless, and the rest of the dishes were not good. The only dish I liked were the olives.

Cons: food not good

There are better restaurants - Edit

We went for Sunday brunch and everything was vegan (although gluten not marked) but the food was bland. There are definitely tastier restaurants to visit in Porto.

Pros: Friendly Staff, location

Cons: Bland food, gluten free options not marked

Good value for money - Edit

Staff kindly explained how the buffet works. There's quite some options to choose from and you can take as much as you want. Some drinks are included, but beers and coffee (for example) are charged a little extra. Food was nice, not anything special, but surely won't leave hungry.

Pros: Good value, Friendly staff, Plenty of seats

Good deal - Edit

I visited when they had a lunch eat-as-much-as-you-want buffet which was 11.95€ with tea included. It seemed a bit expensive but I left thinking it's a rather good deal.
The buffet is on the healthy side and while some of the dishes were a bit bland, many were very well made out of fresh ingredients. For example, little tomato-tofu-pineapple skewers were amazingly tasty. The only thing I found missing were fruits. It would be nice to have fruit salad or simply sliced fruit for the desert.
The place itself is clean, tidy and nice to spend a couple of hours. Highly recommended for all who like health oriented buffets.

Pros: Nice place, Good location , Everything was vegan

Cons: Slightly expensive , No desert or fruits in the buffet

Swings! - Edit

I chose to go here for a late lunch yesterday as I was very excited about sitting in the swings. The buffet was all vegan and the desserts vegetarian. The food was very fresh and I particularly enjoyed the spiritual tofu, which reminded me of macaroni cheese. Didn't go for a dessert in the end, the vegan option being a chocolate mouse, but it looked to be delicious and quite a large portion.
All in all, a lovely place to eat and the swings are great for a relaxing read while you eat your meal.
I should add that they close at 4pm and then I think they reopen at 6.30pm (possibly later).

Tasty Buffett - Edit

On the day we visited we were told that the Buffett was 100% vegan which pleased us very much. The food was tasty, I particularly enjoyed the lasagne which was rich in flavour. The interior is smart but relaxed. Staff were professional, friendly and helpful. It was reasonably priced and I would definitely return.

Pros: good for vegans, tasty food, friendly staff
