My go-to for group dinners with non-veg friends - Edit

Every time someone asks me for a nice restaurant to have a group dinner with vegetarian/vegan and non-veg friends I suggest this restaurant. Food is very well cooked, super tasty and well presented. The room environment is very cozy and relaxing, and staff is SUPER nice. I always love to go there with friends that are non-veg because they have so many tasty options that forget the need to eat animal products. I always choose to stay outside next to the beautiful garden. It's amazing for summer nights when you want to have a glass of wine and chat with your friends.

Pros: Great vegan food, many options, Super nice staff, always with a smile, Beautiful cozy and relaxing rooms + garden

Cons: Difficult to find a parking lot

A little pricy and has some hits and misses - Edit

Me and my bf were really excited to try the cheese platter but it turned out to be awful and not worth the money. The texture and taste were nothing even close to cheese and tasted weird. Plus all the cheeses were made of nuts and the fact that you had only more nuts and bread on the plate made the whole dish very dry and fatty which we didn't find tasty at all.
The burger with seitan also had a weird taste which we also wouldn't recommend to order.
However, their coctails and wrap with tempeh were amazing! One thing about the wrap was, though, that it was served with probably a whole can worth of regular chickpeas on the side, which we obviously couldn't finish up. That was absolutely not necessary and wasteful.
Other than that, the menu has a lot other dishes to offer, so we are sure that you can find some more hidden jems on there!

Very vegan friendly just don't bother with dessert - Edit

This place does get busy so is best to book, luckily on the night we went they had a spare table for us. It is vegetarian however there is a good range of vegan options. I would say that majority of the main courses were vegan and some of the dishes on the menu were not vegan but it said (vegan option) next to and you could ask them to alter it to make it vegan. menu was clear and well labelled. we had a seitan burger for main and it was soo good. unfortunately the fried sweet potato it comes with are not chips but thinly sliced fried sweet potato but these were much nicer than the ones served at vegana burger. the salad was ruined with olive oil but that's how they like it. the desserts were questionable. I had lemon sorbet but there was only one scoop and it seemed to be drowned in what only tasted like vodka, my partner had passionfruit cheesecake but the Base was pretty soggy. I would say skip dessert here but don't skip the restaurant definitely worth going. lovely atmosphere too. and I had a wonderful glass of sangria and the beer was very affordable for my partner too. cost us €45 for three courses each and alcoholic drinks.

Pros: lots of choice even for vegans, nice atmosphere

Cons: desserts aren't great

Amazing!! - Edit

I arrived without a reservation and since it was in late December, the place was very busy. We were able to secure a table, but had to eat quickly, which is a shame because I would have liked to spend much more time there to relax and really enjoy my food. I was still very happy to be able to eat there.

I ordered the burger with caramelized onions. It came with a salad and a side of root veggie fries. The burger was really to die for, it is probably amongst the best burgers I've had. The salad was not particularly good, but not particularly bad either. The dressing was just bland.

If I lived in Lisbon, I'd go there A LOT.

Pros: Great service, Great food, Great atmosphere

Lovely place! Recommand it! - Edit

I had a lovely vegan lunch at Jardim Dos Sentidos. I've felt welcomed and I was really happy when they told me that 99% of the buffet was vegan.

It was DELICIOUS. I also tried the passion fruit cheesecake, which was soft and light. A perfect way to end this really good meal.

Keep the good work!

Pros: Excellent food, Good staff

Nice place! - Edit

Jardim dos Sentidos is a vegetarian restaurant with many vegan options. The vegan options are clearly marked. It is nicely decorated and I suppose in summer their garden must be very beautiful. They have many starters, mains and desserts to choose from, many dishes are influenced by Asian or Oriental food.

Our dishes didn’t taste like they would in their country of origin, but were very good anyway. What I didn’t like was that they had a crumble with vanilla ice cream, that you can get in a vegan version. But the vegan version wasn’t with vanilla ice cream, instead I got a scoop of lemon sorbet. Both the crumble and the sorbet were good, but in my opinion it is not a good combination. Had I known that I would not get vegan vanilla ice cream, I would have chosen something else…

Would definitely go there again!

Pros: Good food, Great ambience

Food ok, but poor service - Edit

Food was ok (bit heavy on 'mock meats'), but after taking our initial order we were totally ignored. We had lengthy waits to get desert menu, the bill and final insult change after paying the bill. Very disappointing.

Pros: Food OK

Cons: Poor service., Bit pricey

We returned - Edit

I've been to many vegetarian restaurants during my travels. We found Jardim dos Sentidos by searching with Happy Cow. The decor was very warm. I couldn't believe how big the place was. We were seated roughly half way inside when we noticed that the restaurant continued well into the back. The back part looked like a huge tent and we saw people going even further so I suspect there was even a patio area ( don't know for sure as we didn't ask).

Service was friendly. We were astonished by the selection of the menu. It was of the largest we have seen for a vegetarian restaurant. We made our selection and everything was delicious. We came back for another meal on Sunday but unfortunately it was closed.

If this place was in my home city, I would be eating here often.

Best Restaurant in lisbon - Edit

This was my favorite restaurant that i went to in Lisbon! (out of eight) I am vegan and they had plenty of vegan options, and everything else is vegetarian. I went to both the by-menu dinner and their lunch buffet.

The food was all delicious and was some of the best prepared, seasoned, and presented food that i had in lisbon. The vegan desserts were also very good! I went to dinner here with 4 carnivores and they were all delighted with it!

The ambiance is classy and quite lovely. The location is close to the Jardin botanico, so if you are coming here for lunch i recommend you go to the jardin botanico before or after. The restaurant is also located right next to the small and scenic praca da alegria.

If you only go to one restaurant in Lisbon, this should be it!

Pros: food, location, ambiance

Good, little pricey perhaps - Edit

It is quite a big restaurant, good atmosphere. I had Pakara which was very good, my main dish and dessert, seitan and lemon cheesecake, were a bit bland to be honest, especially considering the price.

Garden of the senses - Edit

What a wonderful place indeed. Beautiful inside with a plush conservatory area and garden which is delightful at night. The daytime buffet here is excellent value here at €9.90 (as of September 2015) and of excellent quality with huge vegan choice. It's worth asking which items aren't vegan as they outway the non-vegan items. I would guess the buffet is generally the same every day with a few changes thrown in for variety. My only issue is that I always eat too much, so I can't really complain. The buffet consists of things such as lasagne, tofu casserole, vegetable rice, veggie soya mince, sweetcorn balls and a delicious creamy aubergine casserole. There are also noodles, fried potatoes with seitan, various vegetables, dips and salads. At night the theme is tranquil pseudo-gourmet dining. We had the most amazing seitan and tofu grilled skewers and seitan stroganoff imaginable. Seriously impressive and vegan. Other equally outstanding dishes are available. At €9 for a bottle of excellent house wine you would be crazy to miss out. This is a beautiful place my friends, a truly lovely vegetarian establishment.

Pros: food, price, amazing food combinations

Lunch buffet was a vegan heaven - Edit

I visited this place for a lunch, and I found the variety overwhelmingly good. You have everything from salad ingredients to different warm plates that are so good you wish you'd never get full but just keep trying different things. You'll leave content and not even much poorer, since the place is not very pricey.

Pros: Doesn't leave you hungry, Makes you happy

good vibes - Edit

Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, beautiful wine, average food. The experience was highly enjoyable although the food was a little stuck in veggie timewarp (think lentils, bean chilli, lasagne etc).

Amongst all the dishes our group tried I thought the tofu & leek terrine with nori seaweed wrap was by far the most interesting dish and very tasty!

Definitely worth a visit, but remember they are closed on Saturday lunchtime & all day Sunday.

Nice food, a bit expensive for what it is - Edit

This place is kind of on the fancy side, the food is good, but not great and it's comparatively expensive. The lentil koftas are worth it though.

Lunch Buffet - Edit

Me and my friends had lunch here last summer in the outdoors space, which has a very pleasant atmosphere. The buffet was good, with various options but would not recommend for people who don't like vegan/vegetarian dishes! For those who enjoy this type of cuisine this place has very different options!

Cons: the price is a little high

Beautiful Garden and Tasty Buffet! - Edit

This restaurant is one of my favourites in Lisbon!

I've only been there at lunch time, which means I have only tried the buffet ( during the week). I've heard/ read that at dinner time things are not that good, or at least, people aren't lucky with the meals they choose from the menu and it is more expensive.

I can say that the buffet is amazing and I've loved it every time I went there. It has several vegan options, warm ( if you go early) and really tasty dishes, as well as amazing salads.

At lunch time it is also cheaper, so if you are looking for a calm, cozy and peaceful place to experiment vegetarian/ vegans meals, you won't be disappointed!

Pros: Excellent Food, Nice vibe, Inexpensive ( lunch)

Cons: Expensive at dinner time, No buffet at the weekend
