Great restaurant, but sometimes too experimental

Awesome interior design, nice staff, and mostly great food. Some creations are too experimental and the flavor combination doesn't work...

Pros: Many vegan optins

Cons: Some dishes are too experimental

Delicious but expensive

The food is high-end, haute cuisine and really amazing. Never tasted so many different nuances in a few tiny bites. But this has its price and Fava Tonka is really pricey.

Overstanding food, but terrible staff

The food pretends to be "haute cuisune" and so it is. The portions are tiny but extremely well prepared, with dense taste and appropiate textures. No doubt about the execution.

The problem is that the service is very poor. We asked for 3 plates and we did not get them together but one after another, with half hour of waiting in between. As the plates were not meant to be shared, while one person was eating, the other was watching. With the final plate, we received directly the bill, with a clear indication that we shall leave ASAP, because of the next reservation (and of course without a possibility to ask for a dessert, which we finally managed to order afterwards). But the problem was the waiting time for the food, not that we spent too much time talking! Very rude. Definitively this is not a treatment that you expect from a restaurant from this price range!

Finally, this is mostly a vegetarian restaurant, where the vegan options are rather limited. It is a fancy place, but I would not come back on my own, unless looking for an elegant dinner with omnivores.

Primeira experiência desiludiu

Um restaurante pequeno mas muito bonito, onde fui após ter lido o algumas revisões positivas sobre o mesmo. Os funcionários receberam-nos bem inicialmente, embora nos advertissem logo que a cozinha estava prestes a fechar e provavelmente não teríamos algumas opções (embora tivéssemos feito reserva do almoço antecipadamente, e na altura sem qualquer advertência nesse sentido). Seguimos as sugestões da funcionária que nos atendeu, e infelizmente o único ponto positivo foi a apresentação visual; a sopa de cebola que nos serviram era salgada e enjoativa, e as outras opções tinham um sabor aceitável mas nutricionalmente muito pouco interessantes e com porções muito pequenas para o seu preço. A sensação global com que ficamos foi que na tentativa que de inovar a parte visual acabaram por comprometer significativamente a qualidade dos pratos. Ponderamos regressar noutra oportunidade, mas infelizmente a primeira experiência não foi boa.

É alta gastronomia vegetariana

É lindo ver a forma como tratam os ingrediente integralmente, abre a cabeça pra forma de cozinhar. Realmente vale experimentar numa ocasião especial.
Pensei que eu fosse ter uma experiência completa, mas por ser vegana, alguns molhos e pratos não pude experimentar, mas como eles dizem são vegetarianos e ao que se propõe são 5*

They change their menu every month, using new vegetables from the season. They use igredients I haven't even heard of! But it's super good! Really recommend the experience. It's a bit on the expensive side though.

Pros: Mind blowing food, Great service

Cons: Expensive

Great experimental cuisine

Great for people that appreciate experimental cuisine, they make use of many local ingredients as well as some less known (to locals) foreign ingredients. In my opinion, the best vegetarian (exclusively) restaurant in the Porto region.

Pros: Delicious vegetarian/vegan food., Great service, Good wine selection and cocktails

Cons: Service can be a little too fast., They rely on dairy a bit too much.

Exquisite food

We were a group of four and went there for dinner. It was like a journey through an innumerable amount of tastes led by the description of the waitress.
The concept is of sharing food with your friends. I would definitely recommend it.

Pros: Very good service , 4 delicious fully vegan dishes plus one desert

Delicious food on a rustic environment.

The service is excellent. On week days the daily menu includes a soup, one drink, the daily dish and a coffee for only 10EUR.
They also have a la carte menu.
I recommend it!
