Good food topped by delicious desserts

Four of us had lunch at this restaurant, inside rather than in the courtyard. Both areas were pleasant and airy - and quiet because it is located on a pedestrianised alleyway off the main street. A few smokers outside if that worries you. It was all good without being outstanding; the service... read more

We had the most amazing fish platter ever! Delicious is not a sufficient word to describe the food here! We stayed outside on the narrow street getting the vibe of the old town. A very pleasant experience! We will always come back! Compliments to the chef!

we came here late at night to listen to fado - it's a tiny little bar with very little sitting room, and they have fado later at night. SO worth it - the night we were there, the world famous Fado singer, Mariza, made a special appearance and sang. It was hauntingly beautiful, and definitely a treat, as the locals... More

The service is very good and friendly. You will get all necessary recommendations and explanation about the food served. As we were a bit cold after Cabo da Roca we ordered tea, that costed us 5.60 euros for 2 people!!!! After 1 starter and main dish for 2 persons (arroz with seafood, it's a traditional Portuguese dish, served for 2)... More

Well, they try, a bit. But Sintra at lunchtime is heaving with tourists so they don't really try very much! Cod fritters were very disappointing and shrimp in aioli ditto. Nice glass of Alentejo wine though and a kind waiter who carefully found somewhere for us to sit.

This was recommended by our B & B host. It's in a pleasant alley off the main street so there was no traffic noise. Food was very good - I had the vegetarian option and it was excellent. I thought the prices were good too. The only problem from our perspective was the guitarist who was serenading the outside tables.... More

Not to turistic, nice location, live music and good food. And it's great for late dinners when almost everything else is closed or closing and they only want you to hurry. Good food but not cheap.

We stopped for tapas and drinks after a day visit to Sintra and we were pleasantly surprised. The place was not busy so we had attentive and fast service. The food was good but not extraordinary. The bread and olives were fantastic. It is located in a charming alley in a touristy part of town so you expect to pay... More
