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).

Updated from previous review on 2017-07-07

Pros: Interesting seating, Fresh food

Excellent and nutritious food brilliantly prepared and combined. Lovely restaurant and friendly staff. 9.95 euros for evening buffet without desserts, drinks or coffee. But food is so generous that you feel full and no space for anything else ! Highly recommended!

Pros: food , premises, staff

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

Best buffet in Porto - Edit

This was definitely the best buffet experience in Porto. Lots of choice in 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

Swing and dine! - Edit

With the swings facing the street, dining at Cultura Dos Sabores is a fun experience. The food was great as wel with a wide choise of cold and hot dishes from the buffet. A hot or cold tea (free refills) was included.

The food itself is simple and healthy. I don't think much, if any, oil is used while cooking. At our visit the whole buffet was vegan.

We had the apple crumble for dessert and it was nice as wel and not overly sweet.

Although many reviews state the restaurant is overpriced I disagree. Don't expect gourmet-like food and enjoy healthy food instead.

Pros: Swings, Healthy vegan food, Price

Good but not Fantastic - Edit

Some of the dishes on the buffet are really good but some (like the sushi) are not worth the space they take up in your stomach. The staff is extremely friendly but the buffet is way overpriced.

Pros: All vegan buffet, Some really nice dishes

Cons: Over priced, Some items are not flavorful at all

Lovely Buffet options - Edit

We had a lovely healthy lunch here, which was great as the rest of out time in Porto we mainly ate cheese and pastry!

There is a variety of different meals and you go up and serve yourself, we ate a range of salads, brown rice dishes and stews. There was also a fresh mint tea included in the set price meal.

The staff were really friendly and helpful and we definitely had enough to eat. It was easy to locate with the swings in the window.

Pros: Healthy veggie options, Nice space , Easy to locate

Cons: Informal setting

The price is not justified - Edit

We had the dinner buffet which was over 12 euro per person. The cold dishes were nice, it had really good vegan sushi and nachos with a vegan cheese dip, but other than that it was a wide selection of fresh veggies that you could combine into a salad. The hot dishes included creamed soup with no flavour, bland seitan skewers with overcooked veggies, very dry hummus crockets, a filo dough parcel stuffed with tofu and just potatos and rice as sides. Very, very underwhelming for the price and we didn't enjoy the evening because of this.

I considered trying the vegan franchesina on the next day but I was informed that the price was a little shy of 13 euros. That's 13 euros for a sandwich covered is cheese and a tomato sauce. Are they kidding?

Pros: Staff was friendly the interior is nice and it&#39

Cons: Very overpriced for what you get, the food was bla
