Traditional cuisine, good service

Our first meal in Portugal was served well at this restaurant. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. Jet lag kept us from enjoying a long dinner, but the food was good and the price was fair.

Wonderful service and atmosphere. Food was fantastic! As with all restaurants in Portugal, small appetizers like olives, bread, and cheese ( even the butter)are brought to your table. There is a charge for every item- they were so good it didn't matter. The charges were nominal at best and the quality was incredible. Ordered the grilled pork chop and the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my meal of monkfish stew and mango mousse, washed down with an excellent house Branco. Service was attentive, pleasant and the waiter's ability to communicate ably in several languages was very impressive. Highly recommend if staying in or near Sintra.

This is a great place for an excellent dinner but beware of the bread, butter, cheese and olives put on the table when you sit down. All these things are extras, we were very surprised to learn that a small container of butter was to be charged at one euro. We thought this practice was a bit chintzy. However this... More

Our last night in Sintra we went to Restaurante Regional de Sintra. It is a traditional restaurante with a nice staff and incredible meals. We try the salt cod fish a la regional and the tournedó and they were delicious. The dessert was incredible too. I recommended you the chocolate mousse, it was unforgettable.

This was the best meal we had in Sintra. Get the prawns. Really wonderful service. The food was fresh, nicely done, and just what we needed. House wine was great. Dessert was ridiculous ... some cream puffs with a GRAVY BOAT full of melted dark chocolate syrup. Uh, yeah.

With all the great reviews, we were disappointed with our visit there. Average at best, bordering terrible. Very touristy and greasy food. Service was mediocre. Crowded and didn't have a good ambiance as far as cleanliness goes.

Once you get inside you are warmly welcomed in a lovely interior, alongwith some finger licking side dishes. Did not get to dessert, because the main course was more than enough & did not stop me from stopping on time :-)

The owner is your host. He is friendly and very knowledgeable, and has hired a wonderful chef to prepare his delicious dinners. Would not hesitate to return.

Unfortunately I wasn't thrilled with this place. We had planned on going somewhere else but literally everywhere else was closed. Granted we were visiting Sintra during the off-season in November. All I can really tell you about regional de Sintra is to look else where. The two staff members were nice but the service wasn't outstanding, the food was average... More
