Majestic Cafe - Review

The best known cafe in Porto, the Majestic Cafe, is not just popular for its choicest food and drink options but also for its elegant architecture. The gilded woodwork, chandeliers, paintings, and upholstery of Majestic Cafe can give any of Porto’s monuments a run for its money. The cafe opened in late 1929 and back then was called ‘Elite Cafe’.

It soon became the favourite haunt of intellectuals, high class females and celebrated personalities of the age. The café shed the ‘Elite’ in its name to rid itself of any perceived monarchic hangovers. By the 1960s, the building lay in a decidedly decrepit state and was more or less sent into retirement. In the early 1990s, it was once again restored to its cultural glory and opened for business.

The cafe will also go down in modern history for another special reason. Author J. K. Rowling spent majority of her time here working on the first book ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’.

The Majestic Cafe offers luxuriant and mouth-watering food from morning to midnight. Try their wines as well as salads.

Majestic Cafe, Porto Reviews

  • This place is a tourist trap ripoff. You’ll note there are no locals there. €5 for a small coffee? €15 for an unimpressive tuna sandwich? No vegetarian options, not even a salad. The food is not special. Go take a picture of the interior, and then go eat somewhere the locals actually eat. Right now I’m enjoying a €1.50 coffee and delicious €4 sandwich right down the street. I’ve eaten all over Spain and Portugal and this place is a highway robbery.

  • Historic cafe located on the busy shopping promenade of Rua Santa Catarina. It's very busy place, usually a line to get in mostly tourist. But you can't pass a chance to see the ornate decorations, atmosphere with the classic look. Definitely one of the most beautiful cafe in Porto or even the world. As expected coffee was expensive but very good. The pastel de nata was delicious. Did not order food, just wanted a quick jolt of energy in the afternoon.

  • Wow. What a super impressive old cafe. Rock up almost any time without a reservation and sit in a piece of Porto history. We just had coffee and cake (& the port that went with it!). Beautiful decor, awesome service and Really good coffee too.

  • Their staple dessert (French toast) is awesome! The service not so much. Leather seats, fancy decorations. If service improved I would go back

  • Five stars for the interior classic look. Food is a one star relative to expectations and price. Plain burger for about $20 with sad looking buns and soft wimpy fries just don’t match the Majestic name. This is my first disappointment in 10 days in Portugal so far.
