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

Good food at a fair price. I ordered the sausage and long beans, olives and a Portuguese steak. The food was very tasty and the portion are generous. The bread is to die for. It is tucked away in an alley just east of the palace. It took me a while to find it, but it was worth the effort.... More

As good a location as there is in Sintra - a small quiet pedestrian area close to the royal palace, with outside tables and cosy inside rooms. The menu looked fine for lunch, pricy but OK. Our order was taken and the drinks and bread arrived quickly. Sixty minutes later and our food hadn't arrived. The waiter insisted that it... More

We stayed 2 nights in Sintra and ate here twice. Lovely, friendly staff and good food. The first night we were the only people sitting upstairs, but service was excellent and we had a very good meal. the following evening we sat in the bar, which has an open kitchen,and had tapas. The atmosphere was fun and food equally good.

We ordered the appetizers and the vegeterian dish. We all loved it. And the atmosphere is very nice. Recommended.

Having late dinners is a problem in SIntra since there are few restuarants that stay open late. This is why we unfortunately ended up at Tasco Do Chico. It was opened so we grabbed a table outside. Right away the service was very slow. Oh how I wish we would have taken that negative ign and left!! Live and learn.... More

We had our dinner in Tasca Do Chico end of July. The place looks very typical, but if you give a look to the prices in the menu you can easily understand the restaurant is not a cheap one. The food was very good. We took a salmon and a “Bifes portuguesa” and both of them were fantastic. Also the... More

Try the octopus and sausage cooked at your table while listening to fado music from a neighboring store. The house wine is very good.

Friendly service, sat at outdoor table and ate sea bream and sea bass with steamed broccoli and tender spinach and French fries. Good food, not cheap but nothing in Sintra is and at around 40 euros for two inc 2 drinks and 2 desserts this was good value compared to many places.
