This place was a true gem! Fantastically fresh vegan food (they also do vegetarian). They have a visual menu which is great because you can see what you are going to get. The staff were all great. They took time to explain all the dishes...with care. We filled our bellies up and left feeling really happy. We ordered a butternut squash curry which was warm and comforting. We also ordered a plate of sweet potato and other vegetables/salads. So delicious. My fussy 13 year old also ate!! The vegan pannacotta was divine with a mango topping, coconut cream and strawberry compote. We are only in Cascais for a few days but will look for another opportunity to go back for more.More

Wonderful vegetarian dishes even for a meat eater like me. Nice easygoing atmosphere and a great staff. Try the wonderful Sangria! Great place, we love it!

Really nice, colorful and cozy place. The foods looks and tastes delicious. It’s really nice decorated too. Loved the toilet signs. If you want a good and healthy meal go there! We loved it 😊

I have been in Cascais for only two weeks and I go back here for lunch or dinner now 4 times! The food is fresh and VERY plentiful at a reasonable price!

My boyfriend and I stumbled across this gorgeous restaurant and ate here 6 days in a row. The food was unbelievable and for a great price. We loved the brisk humor of the owners, which I think some reviewers below are intimidated by. European humor...is tough love sometimes! We were so taken care of, we just fell in love with the place. Go here always and multiple times. You won’t regret it.More

The cheese was orrible and made the little lasagna uneatable, tasteless vegetables, strange sauces. They don't tell you prices taking advantage of tourists disorientation, there is no menu, you point at a plate and they ""cook"" that for you. If you are Italian don't go...there, I was alone and hungry so I did a mistake. Good looking place by the wayMore

The quality of the food was simply amazing and at a great price. €11.50 for a main course and a great selection. The sushi was a work of art and tasted every bit as good as it looked. The ambience was very relaxed with no...pressure on people to finish up and move on. The ordering process is a little eccentric in that you go in and pick what you want to eat and drink and then go and find a seat. Somehow the staff are able to locate you and deliver your order to your table. I've no idea how they keep track of everyone. Payment is similar. It seems to be something of an honour system relying on you to go back in and up to the top floor to pay your bill which is based on your recollection of what you had.More

Healthy, tasteful and colorful dishes. Something else then the standard vegetarian dishes. The owner was kind of passive aggressive in her communication. You have to order your food and drinks downstairs, which was no problem because we've got to see the food prepared allready so...you know exactly what you order. It was a beautiful terrace to sit.More

Good - location and decoration are good. The place is beautiful, very “instagrammable” and really close to the charming streets of Cascais. Delicious juice and beautiful food but of course, not cheap. Poor - the stay is uncomfortable. It is as if we were begging...to be there and the staff is always afraid of making decisions because they have a really rude and sour manager. She makes an effort to make sure every costumer spends only the necessary time in the place and order as much food and drink possible. As a resident, I’ve been there many times because the place is beautiful and well located, but as a person who works with costumer services, it is visible they lack touch with people. Such a nice place ruled by a rude manager.More

The place looks amazing, very tasteful decoration. The good tastes pretty good when you finally receive it. This brings me to an important issue of house of wonders. It truly makes you wonder. Upon entering we waited some time to be served, when finally an...employee told us you need to order inside. No worries, but a little sign somewhere would have been helpful. Inside a middle aged woman was carefully explaining every dish to people in front of us. An employee saw us waiting and told us we could order with, so we did. When we were about to pay, the middle aged woman told us we should order with her with an aggravated tone. Sorry, we were not aware, maybe instruct your employees a bit better. But it did show us the kind of level of hospitality. We went back to our seats to wait for our shakasuckq and omelet. Every once in a while some employees wondered on the deck asking almost all the guests “did you order ….?” And see them walking away to try the same at the rooftop. It was kind of amazing to be part of this weird setup. If people need to order inside, give them a little sign with a number and ask them to put it at their table. This all made it seem very amateuristic. I don’t understand why they make a simple thing as serving customers so difficult. If gordan Ramsey would have been a spectator of this restaurant, you would hear censored beeps every 5 seconds. The place looks amazing, but needs serious attention tohospitallity and needs to implement some kind of optimized system for serving customers. If you have all the time an patience in the world, check out this place.More
