We have skewed chicken and roasted goat (cabra) here. The meat is tender and smell so good. The traditional soup and hazelnut pudding is also fine. This restaurant is also stop point of tour group, so recommend to visit this place earlier. All staffs are helpful and active.

We went there to eat on a recommendation from a couple in our hotel who just came back from there. We went in and the design was to say the least loud. Everything was about the corral and goats. Prices seemed a bit steep until the waiter said that their meals are enough for 2 persons. So we had charcoal... More

Our driver picked this place and it was a great choice. Before we even ordered they brought out cheese, bread, sausage, and more. Service was great. We had a long leisurely lunch with a great bottle of wine and company. No need for dinner later. Loved the ambience.

My husband & I were on a Mediterranean Cruise back in early september and we took an excursion out to Sintra. Stopped at this quaint restaurant for lunch and were amazed at the beautiful views of Sintra high up on the mountain. Lunch was amazing...started with chiabata bread with parma ham, olives and cheese, then a lovely salad, a portuguese... More

Although out of the way, this quaint small restaurant met all of our expectations. Quiet, good service and exceptional food. Worth a trip.

Very rustic indeed and boy does it fill up quickly. There is loads of farm tools stuffed animals and the like as part of the decorations inside this place. The staff are wonderful, the food devine, the starter of breads, cold meat and local cream cheese was superb. The seafood dishes and salmon were stunning as was the goat.
