I am a Foodie and eat out frequently. I can not believe that I did know that this restaurant existed. I have eaten there twice. Both times food was great and good service. The Crab/Cod-cake with field greens appetizer was scrumptious. Duxbury oysters on half shell with lemoncello mignonette was very nice. On my first visit I tried the pork... More

What a lovely casual upscale restaurant in the heart of Braintree, a friendly little suburb of Boston. Sintra has a great ala carte menu, I went with the pasta with Portuguese (chorizo) sausage, salad and roll. Large portion, very good, not rushed on ordering and enjoyed a very relaxing meal with my wife and my sister (the local who recommended),... More

We were a bit worried given a couple of the reviews we read but we ended up being as happy as we were when we first ate here a couple of years ago. We had the crab and fish cakes which were superb. Then we had a weird but wonderful flatbread with blue cheese. Then we had the smaller plate... More

This spot use to be much better. Not sure what's going on with it. The food is Boston prices and quality okay. Nothing great about it. They close by 9:00 on weekends. Use to be much better quality of food and service. Seems like the owner, chef - is either tired of it or wants out. Okay nothing great.

When eating at Sintra, you will feel,like you are in some fancy downtown restaurant. This place is very good, and quite popular with .braintree locals willing to spend some money. It is off the beaten path, and for you out of owners... Find it. You'll be glad you escaped the sameness of all the restaurants at or near the south... More

The service was great as was the food but the place is too small. An intimate setting is great but being overwhelmed by the fragrance the woman at the next table is wearing is not. You are in the middle of the other tables conversation as well. Certainly that out weighs the service and the food.

Sintra is a warm & inviting little spot with an innovative Portuguese/Italian menu under the very capable direction of Chef Brian Jenkins. Since their expansion & renovation several years ago the restaurant is much easier to locate with a front door access now on the main street in South Braintree Square in addition to the old one from their rear...

If you want a little taste of Boston without the parking hassels and the long wait lines, you will enjoy Sintra. My husband and I like to go for special occasions and sometimes just for their delicious Mussels and some wine. I have not been disappointed by anything and I think I have just about gone thru the menu. Sintra... More
