"Good food at ORDINARY prices, ORDINARY prices."

So said our very helpful and Sintra born taxi driver so we had lunch there and found him to be right on both counts, plus for good measure the ambience was pleasant and the service very good. It's right by the railway station. Family run, fine for families but a couple would not find it lacking... read more

Went with family to this restaurant. It quickly filled with people waiting outside. Interior clean and interesting. Served with olives and bread. The cheese dip was just out of freezer and we should have sent it back, impossible to dip bread. Service by elderly males attentive but brasque. Food ordered was quickly served, nothing special, little overpriced for what we... More

Neighbourhood restaurant that was predominantly frequented by locals and dome tourists. It was packed on the Wednesday evening we visited. The host was welcoming while having little English. My seafood skewers we excellent and the swordfish was tasty. Food was simple but tasty and we would return.

Great little restaurant which has a homely feel. The octopus from the specialities fantastic, fresh, and large portion. We would come back just for this! The veal was very basic in comparison, done a little too rare, but ok.

This restaurant seems to be popular with locals. I ordered vegetable soup and grilled sardines. The food was very good and service was attentive.

After a week in Portugal I couldn't eat any more meat, so I had what the waiter translated to me as "country salad," and vegetable soup, both of which were excellent. My husband had salmon, and being from the Pacific Northwest he is usually extremely critical of salmon anywhere else, but said it was one of the most well-cooked salmon... More

The restaurant's ambience is nice, with Portugese locals and a very decent host. The wine is also quite lovely (Vila Real in this case). The food, however, was not so, with an enormous omelet as only vegetarian option and a mal-prepared steak. Judging by the neighbors' plates, the fish seemed like the better option.

You will enjoy beautiful traditional food cooked exceptionally well. We both had the house meat skewer which we frequently have when visiting Portugal but this one was right up there. the meat was so tender and the onions so sweet. Staff were lovely and catered for the tourists and loyal locals. Would love to return one day.

Typical cuisine restaurant with a good service. Nice place with family atmosphere, I recommend the choosing of the "dishes of the day" ... A note of attention to Mr. Manuel in the knowing how to welcome anyone... Go there and enjoy your meal ;-)

Lots of locals (we were the only tourists). The best dish was the "tamboril com camarões". Excellent food and service!!!
