Try Sintra's Friday and Saturday Menu!

We have been enjoying Sintra's breakfasts and lunches for 8 years...always fresh, delicious and authentic Mediterranean! Just recently Sintra's has been doing small, lite entrees on Fridays and Saturdays nights. We have had dinner here 2 times in the past 3 weeks. This past Saturday night was... read more

The Hobo scramble special and the brie omelet were fantastic. And I do not want to forget the incredible Sintra Bloody Mary!

We were disappointed with Cafe Sintra . We were surprised that we had to order at the counter! We prefer table service especially for a restaurant as pricey as Cafe Sintra. We expected that at a Cafe Bistro or an exceptional restaurant. The food was ok and even the pastries were disappointing. There are many other great places to go... More

We had a very unfavorable experience. Had 5 people in our group. One of us walked in simply to enquire about a wait or a list, and was abruptly told: "We can't seat you." The person then walked off without any other words. Needless to say: she walked out, and we went on our way to have a very enjoyable... More

A small cafe located in the heart of historic downtown Bend is the perfect lunch stop. It seems to be a popular breakfast place as well. My husband & I were warmly greeted by the owner. Using his Portugese mother's recipe, the Portugese chicken stew was yummy. The cinnamon spiced Chai drink was so delightful and my husband found the... More

We love this place. Consistently great service, great food, not crowded. Excellent menu. Great for a brunch or lunch or breakfast. However.......this is NOT a luxury dining experience. (hence 4/5 stars)

Our negative response to Café Sintra probably comes out of what we'd expected: A unique Portuguese dining experience. While it was not bad for a simple pedestrian lunch, the menu choices we made were seeking an ethnic flair, but were passable at best. The chicken-white bean stew with green chiles and sour cream and warm sandwich of linguiça, sautéed onions,... More

We were becoming discouraged looking for a place that was open and serving light lunches in downtown Bend while driving through Oregon on a Sunday. And then we happened to come upon Cafe Sintra and what a find! We really enjoyed the serene atmosphere and very good food. We shared a fruit salad with a delectable assortment of the freshest...

Enjoyed the unique menu choices and the fact that it was quiet compared to the other places in the sunriver village which can have too many little kids and too many TVs for our taste.
