A group of 12 of us arrived in without a reservation and were made very welcome. Food was outstanding. House White was very good. I had the monkfish which was out of this world and others had steak, cod and chicken which they all rated as excellent.

We arrived late in the evening to Sintra, after walking for over an hour, we came across the Regional restaurant, we had no reservations, they were very busy, but said if we waited for about 20 minutes a table would be available. It was well worth the wait, I had monk fish, my husband had steak, both were outstanding. We... More

Food here was delicious. This restaurant is definitely worth your time and is vastly superior to most of the fare in the main touristy area. We had delicious pork alentejana, veal chop, and sirloin. Great service.

Shellfish Casserole - this was the best meal we had in Portugal. You can tell that the owner is very serious about maintaining the standard of the restaurant. They've probably cooking the dishes in exactly the same way for decades.

This restaurant is located not far from the train station, not near the tourist restaurants in the old part of Sintra. It has a very traditional atmosphere and is somewhat old-fashioned with no outdoor seating. From the outside, you'd almost miss it. However, the food and waiter were wonderful. The waiter was able to answer questions and give suggestions. The... More

We wanted to escape from all the tourist restaurants in the old part of Sintra and encoutered this place. It was old fashioned and very good standard without being over-priced compared to some of the tourist traps. Monkfish kebabs and a big portion of garlicky cod served us well with a decent house wine and coffees to finish. Not the... More

We have just had a delicious meal at this restaurant. Very unassuming from the outside, but everything about it inside is fabulous - great service, friendly staff, fresh food (the regional style cod is wonderful) and home-made dessert....and the portions are very generous! Not to be missed if you are in Sintra

We stopped for a glass of wine at a cafe on that big mountain up on the way to the castle that you can look up at from the Village of Sintra. I asked the cafe owner what his favorite restaurant was in the area since he only served tapas and sandwiches. He told me that his favorite places were... More
