Fine Dining near Sintra

Excellent Restaurant near downtown Sintra. You need a car to get there, but worth the trip. Well organized, with many choices and extensive Wine List. Their specialty is the slowly cooked Goat, but they also have many choices in their menu. Better if you have a GPS or take a Taxi. Only 5-10 minutes... read more

Dined here as part of our cruise tour package. We were not disappointed. Wines were flowing, kebobs were delicious and trimmings were abundant. We were a large group and service was very good. Restaurant was very clean. I'm glad we had the experience of eating in an authentic Portuguese restaurant.

A group of 4 of us visited for lunch. The restaurant is very large and seems to cater to many package tour groups. Service was initially quite efficient, but once we placed our order it took over an hour for the food to arrive! I saw our waiter notice our empty table a couple of times and he seemed to... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for a Monday evening for a "typical" Portuguese experience. The service and food were fantastic and we loved getting to dine amongst local Portuguese families away from more touristic areas.

Either the meat or the fish dishes are great. Service is perfect and there are so treats, lihe the desserts. Normally, when I encounter such extemely good restauranta I call it "museums", which stands for good things to fill your body and that reaches your souls.

My second visit at Curral dos caprinos, and equally satisfied. The ambience is very rustic, and the staff helpful and deliver a very fast service. Upon being seated, we were served delicious olives, the famous cured ham and local cheeselets. We chose to have the mushrooms, very tasty as starters. Our main course consisted of roasted baby potatoes, spinach puree,... More

Having lunch with a 100 or so tourists was not choice but we were part of a tour - what a pleasant surprise as to the quality and quantity of food not to mention prompt service. We were in and out in the allocated time and we heard no complaints, especially not from us. Very local and very nice sums... More
