If you have time to kill... - Edit

We vistited DaTerra twice. First time, we got lucky and got a table outside. So we didn't have to wait 45min (like the people in the queue). The buffet was good, but the plates were empty most of the time. The stressed out stuff wasn't able to get food out in time.
The food was nice, could be better seasoned.
Second time, we only wanted to grab a "quick snack" and we learned: it can take 30min to simply make a sandwich. Wow.

Beautiful food, but unfortunately not really tasty - Edit

We were first to arrive to dinner and therefore had chance to pick something from every dish. Sadly, most of the food didn’t taste good, it just looked amazing. Expecting to eat nice warm dinner, we were disappointed that only one or two dishes were hot. Another minus of the restaurant was that after opening food disappeared quickly and they were not able to keep up with it. Still, I’m going to this place again some day in the hope of eating better tasting food. Place and decor is nice, location is amazing.

Pros: location, food appearance, decor

Cons: taste of food

Superb - Edit

This is a lovely, airy restaurant located in the centre of Porto. When my partner arrived for dinner there was only the buffet available to us, but it didn’t disappoint. The buffet consisted of a large, varied selection of dishes which were fresh and flavoursome. We also enjoyed attentive service and decent wine. The restaurant was very busy, even on a Monday night, so I would recommend booking before you go.

Pros: Fresh, tasty food., Reasonable prices., Attentive, friendly service.

Very good! Vegan buffet is worth it! - Edit

My bf and I tasted the burger on an evening and it was quite nice and I also like the potato wedges. For desert, the banana pie was worth it! On the other side; “cheese cake” made with silken tofu was not really tasty.
We went back another day for lunch and tried the buffet. It was 7,50€ for the all you can eat for lunch. (9,50€ on the evening I think) Lots of options and good price! Definitely a recommandation in Porto!

Pros: delicious , reasonable prices

SO delicious - Edit

Chili burger- amazing. Chocolate cake- amazing. Got here too late for the buffet but I'm certainly not crying about it. It was all delicious. The staff also told me that everything they serve in the restaurant is vegan. I'll be back.

Trendy veggie buffet - Edit

Almost vegan buffet, very central and nice decor.
It seems to be very trendy for tourists. There's a huge selection of food to chose from. A lot of the dishes were very flavorful and some others were impressive looking but a bit plain. I would recommend it either for people that like raw food but also for people like me who likes more consistent and filling dishes. The service was ok but we never ended up having drinks because when the waitress came to ask we were already done with our dinner.

Pros: Cheap, pretty, wide selection

Cons: unconfortable seating, slow service

Fave spot in Porto! - Edit

Yum! All of the buffet except some desserts were vegan. Fresh, flavorful food and a ton of options. We all went up multiple times :) Good wine, too. Friendly and timely service. Large restaurant with a lot of seating. Favorite of the vegan buffets I ate at in Portugal.

Pros: Great food, Fast service, Spacious

Cons: Not all desserts are vegan

The best restaurant I ever been - Edit

I kid you not, there is nothing to regret on this place. The most delicious and amazing variety of food on eat all you can style buffet. The menu is also great when they are not serving the buffet. I went there every day of my stay in Porto and Im so glad I found this place. I wish they could open for breakfast as well and perhaps they need to improve their organization because the food is so good there is a line outside waiting to sit and they got a little messy on this.

Pros: Delicious food, Nice environment, Affordable

Cons: Lack of organization, Not the most friendly staff.

100% vegan, 99% bland - Edit

We had dinner at DaTerra on Baixa. Even on a Wednesday night, the restaurant was busy so reservations are suggested! I’m not a big fan of buffet restaurants but we decided to give DaTerra an opportunity based on the great reviews it has received. It was great for a change that you could eat anything, but for me that was the only ‘pro’. Despite the various options, in general the food was very bland, unseasoned and not-so-exciting - I do hope this was just ‘our luck’! If you’re a big eater and looking for an easy all-vegan option, DaTerra is worth the money!

Pros: 100% vegan, Various options

Cons: Bland & unseasoned food

Love the buffet - Edit

We came there for the buffet but were too early so we got something from the menu which was okay. I had a sandwich which was a bit too dry but still good. The day after we went there for the buffet which was much better! They had so much different food and eben though it says "vegetarian" everything was vegan. They only had a few cakes which were non-vegan and they wine seemed to be non-vegan when I asked. I would totally come back for the buffet and the cakes and there's plenty of seating. The only thing I didn't like was that the staff seemed pretty stressed and it took them a long time to get our order or to get the money when we wanted to pay which was kinda annoying. They probably need some more coordination. A smile wouldn't hurt them but when asking for a spice and if it's spicy he went to the kitchen to show me what it is.

Pros: Big seating area, Great buffet

Cons: Staff is kinda slow

Good all you can eat buffet - Edit

I have only tried the all you can eat buffet which was pretty satisfying with quite a lot of options. The only downside is there are basically only sandwiches and burgers outside the "all you can eat hours".

Pros: Nice place, Centrally located, Tasty food

Cons: Lack of variety outside all you can eat

Great vegan value for money buffet - Edit

I went here twice during a three day stay - mostly because of its great location, but also because of the amazing buffet. They offer all you can eat soup, salads and warm dishes for only 7,50€ during the week and 9,90€ on the weekend! I thought it was going to be vegetarian with labeled vegan options but it was actually 100% vegan.
The fresh salads could have seen a bit more salt but all in all very good and great variety. It's always a moment to remember when you can choose whatever on a buffet as a vegan :)
The staff was friendly but not overly interested nor talkative. Probably not the most comfortable in speaking englisch...

Pros: Vegan buffet with great variety

Overpriced and rude waiters - Edit

The food was good . Unfortunately, it doesn't justify the cost, and the service is rude and unfriendly. I overheard two members of staff criticising tourists using derogatory language, but the manager was not interested to learn about this.



Updated from previous review on 2017-05-18

Pros: Buffet format

Cons: Expensive considering the quality, Rude and unfriendly service, Xenophobic comments by staff

Burguers OK, terrible staff - Edit

So first of all I would say it is really complex to understand the schedule for buffet/normal menu options. It seems that they have lunch buffet from 12:00-15:30 and it is JUST BUFFET no burguers, sandwiches... Then, from 15:30 til 19h they serve burguers and sandwiches but no buffet and from 19h onwards, again dinner buffet and no burguers/sandwiches etc

SO:

JUST LUNCH BUFFET 12:00h-15:30h
NO BUFFET, MENU OPTIONS 15:30h-19:00h
JUST DINNER BUFFET 19:00h-23:00h

We tried two burguers: chillie and chickpeas/almond. The last one was too dry and, although the first one was ok, it practically melted into one's hands while eating. Anyway tasty. Chips were really nice too.

The waitress, however, was a mess. She was unfriendly, a bit angry and she dropped our plates while taking them away! Also, she was talking on the phone while attending the bar... Not good.

Pros: Vegan buffet, Pies

Cons: Staff, Chickpeas's burguer overrated

Modern Buffet - Edit

Modern and smart restaurant. I wasn't expecting to be so impressed. The Buffet is not very extensive but more than sufficient. The soup is the best I've had in Porto and the Brussell sprouts and vegan creme fraise were rather special. Plus the opening hours are great compared to other vege places in Porto. I would be so happy to have a franchise like this where I live.

Updated from previous review on 2017-04-12

Pros: great for vegans, modern, good value
