“If you're vegetarian, then this is the place for you”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

I'm actually not a vegetarian; rather the opposite, in fact! But I can tell you that the House of Wonders serves up a great fare nonetheless.

I'm not going to sit here and pretend to know much about the mysterious world of vegetarian cuisine, so I'll tell you what I did notice: they have great, fresh ingredients for all their food and drinks. Mostly organic. They take care when making the meals (you can watch them doing it) and serve everything really nicely.

They have all sorts of wonderful juices too, and a GIGANTIC selection of different flavors of tea. I LOVE tea, and I was blown away by their selection (and the smell of it all)!

“At last, a restaurant in Portugal where the ingredients are the stars.”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Family lunch in August. The freshest of ingredients prepared quite simply such that the produce is the star. Three lovely fresh salads (all with various cheeses), some meze dishes, a quiche and a vegan salad. All very simple but astonishingly hard to get ahold of in Portugal. The kids loved their novel juices too. We'll be going back to try their cooked dishes one evening in the next couple of weeks.

Service couldn't have been better.

None of us are vegetarians but it was just great to get something so fresh.

Highly recommended.

They have really good fresh fruit shakes and a good service. Additionally, the rooftop is a nice location.

“Worst employer ever”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I went there with a group of friends and we were all drinking and eating except one of them that was stomach sick. The atmosphere was good until one of the employers came up to us saying that everyone needed to consume otherwise that person would have to leave... I couldnt believe what was happening, very very very fustrating and lack of profissionalism. After what happened I can not recommend that place to any one . There are hundreds of good places in cascais to go where service is excelent and employers are nice. This place really sucks and neither I or any friend of mine will go there again! If you like to be treated with respect avoid this place.
