“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

We really enjoyed our experiece at Bristol's. My daughter is "gluten free". We spoke with the chef and were assurred that we would be fine. We had a great meal and terrific service. I would move to Sintra to eat there every day! Every part of the meal was great, including the bill! The price was very resonable!

“Good spot for lunch after visiting the Moorish Castle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011 via mobile

We visited Bristol after climbing up and down the hill to see the Moorish castle - we were very hungry and fancied a spot in the sun. We were pleasantly surprised by the menu, covering many bases from omelette and chips through to fish and tapas. Although quite touristy, the service was very personable and our meals were of a very good standard and satisfied two hungry climbers! The waitress's recommendation of the bread was one we were particularly glad we took. Nothing fancy but would definitely recommend for a sunny lunch!

“Simple and good value dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2011

We had one evening meal at the Bristol and found it a friendly, efficient place offering simple food at good value prices. Nothing fancy here but also no tourist tackiness or stupid prices either. Try the fried Portugese salami starter to wake up your tastebuds, this was very tasty. Unfortunately our sardines and trout were both over salted, which was the only negative aspect of the meal. The house red was fine and the staff helpful and efficient, coping well as the place filled up fairly rapidly just after we arrived.

“Good food, fantastic service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

Waitress was excellent and contributed to a great visit. Moved our table twice with a smile (weather and a table with 6 children under 5 years of age and parents across the room) Food was very good, atmosphere was fun!
