Best meal yet, but ......

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... read 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

This has to be the best restaurant in Sintra, the food is fantastic and the service especially from the head waiter Paulo is first class. Its difficult to find as its not in the main square but is much more authentic than the tourist restaurants in the town . The prawns in Garlic starter is amazing as are most of... More

We ordered the fried chicken and grilled Salmon along with the red wine recommended by the host. Including starters, the bill was 33 euros for two people. An excellent value.

We had dinner here as we did not find another restaurant with a free table nearby. However, we were happy with the choice as although the setting is not that great, the food is really good and the waiter who served us was also quite friendly. We had the monkfish skewers and the steak Portuguese style and we enjoyed the... More
