“Nice view of Sintra but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This restaurant was very easy to find as it is on the Main Street. The food was nothing special but it was ok. Had a good dessert.

“Over priced And bland food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Given it's central location you do expect to pay slightly higher prices but in my opinion go else where. Apart from prices they had run out of cheese by 4pm , I ordered a well cooked omelette it was pale, no colour and no flavour . Very disapointing

“Poor service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Had been waiting for the food for an hour. Hard to call for a waiter. Place is over priced. Food is ok, but nothing special.

“It's food - go if you're hungry and don't care about much else”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This is a cafe on the corner of the main square in historical Sintra. It targets tourists, has average quality food and is on the pricy side for what you get (about 30% or higher than typical). It is a nice place to sit outside and watch the people go by, have a beer or a coffee, and there are many places in Sintra to do this. All in all, its just average. I didn't hate it and I'd go back if it had a table open but only if everything else was full.

“overpriced touristic place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The only good thing about this place is its central location. The food is tasteless and quite expensive. As it was mentioned before they put olives and old bread on the table and then include about 20 additional Euros into your bill if you ate it, if not they put it to the tables of newly arrived guests. Quite insanitary and dishonest. So please do not repeat our mistakes and take five more minutes to find another place to eat, even if you are very tired after excursions. But if you are there please check your bill carefully, they have included orange juice, which we did not order and did not drink.
