Simply amazing food

If you are hungry this is the most amazing food that you will ever eat while in Lisbon. We stumbled into it while waiting for a place at the Wine bar next door. But we were glad we did, the food was great and filling- I would also argue it was reasonably priced- relative to the neighborhood. Word... read more

We visited this tiny restaurant by the castle on the strength of a Lonely Planet review, but think the owners must have changed since that was written. It is now half shop, half restaurant, and far from the solid home cooking we were promised. I had a white fish smothered in a thick curry/coconut sauce with olives: the fish was... More

After our walk up to the castle we were tired and thirsty. We almost walked right by as it's so small, but we tried our luck and I'm so glad we did. The staff are so helpful and genuinely care about every detail. Food and drinks were excellent. It's cozy but wonderful

We heard of this place while waiting in line for a table at a restaurant in Sintra. It's a little bit of a place-- 6, 2-top tables. A mom and pop operation done very well. We had a great meal. It's certainly convenient to the castle area, but you might want to call ahead, as we did.

Very nice and helpful staff, a quiet little place in all the fuss around the castle, we enjoyed sitting there for lunch on a hot day. Also prices are reasonable.

We found this restaurant on our way up to the Castle, as it is near the entrance. The restaurant is small and is not suitable for large groups. The high standard of decor made it an attractive choice to have lunch and a drink. The food was lovely and the service was efficient and is wonderfully laid back. I would... More

We went here before going into the Castle. It's a great little place, the owner was informative about the food and we had a good chat about Portugal and its history - we like to know about the countries/places that we visit. We enjoyed our food and the price was on a par with other restaurants that we visited in... More

This is a lovely little restaurant beside the castle walls. it can be very busy in the evenings so it may be wise to book a table. The owner was a lovely lady who dealt well as front of staff. The fish was lovely as was the dessert. We also stopped here during the day for a small beer.

On 12 covers at a time and as a family of 4 we walked straight in on a Monday evening. The food was excellent. Well presented and cooked and served with both pride and care. Many people were turned away as we dined, simply because there was no room at the inn. The waiter and the chef took care of... More

It's very near the castle so it's perfect to stop by after the visit. We drank a very good bottle of white wine and a plate of cheese and cold meat. Recommended!!
