Over rated tourist attraction. It feels like they cram people in. 5 euro coffee, but the original grandeur is lost with the overcrowding and noise

We had to go. Just to see the interior and experience Porto. We enjoyed our coffee and croissants (ham and cheese), soaked it in, checked the box and continued our explorations.

Like many others we visited the Majestic because of its popularity in tour books, trip advisor and tour guides. Having said that we knew the prices would be higher than surrounding cafes and fast food restaurants. With that in mind do not go the Majestic...More
