“Great Ambiance but Over Priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

The restaurant is in an ideal location next to the Sintra National Palace. Sintra's beauty and charm makes up for much of the over priced food at this restaurant. The bread and butter should be complimentary but they charge you for it. The food is good (steak) but still at 22 Euros a dish its over priced.

“overrated, too expensive even for a touristy place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We stopped over for a drink during our visit to Sintra. We were already warned that the prices in Sintra are "touristic". However, we did not expect to pay this much for the worst coffee we have ever had. We had to pay over 8 euro for a small coffee and a cola! The staff is friendly. The restaurant itself beautifully located but needs to be renovated.

“Classical romanticism”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

I've met this restaurant last night during a visit to the picturesque Sintra, I was accompanied by my sweetheart and we decided for a romantic dinner at coffee Paris, with awesome decoration and a really friendly and efficient service. The waiter, in fancy suit, invited us in as we were enjoying the tree piercing the roof of the terrace. although we didn't think it would be the cheapest place in town, we still thought it would be somehow enjoyable, romantic and remarkable.
My greatest memory of the evening was the night closing down the runaway of tourism and the castle stood there, quiet, the feeling of satisfaction with the tastiest steak and the smoothest wine (Portuguese wine) I'v ever tried. And the candles lightning the dessert and the beautiful light hand of my girlfriend.

“Popular Sintra cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

We had lunch at this pretty cafe overlooking the Pena Palace square and both enjoyed our pasta dishes. Prices here are expensive compared with other places we've eaten in Lisbon, but this could be because Sintra is very touristy. There's a terrace area overlooking the square but we sat inside which is very pretty, gilt and mirrors and beautifully set tables. Staff were pleasant and attentive and service good. Excellent choice for lunch provided you're prepared for higher than normal prices.
