Located at roughly 5-6 min from Sintra station, it offers excellent and dellicious food for good prices. Service is great as well. Would definitely go there again on our future visits to beautiful Sintra.

A generous pour, friendly, handsome staff... our waiter divided my order onto 2 plates for sharing without my asking. Very impressed with the quality of food and thoughtfulness of service. Prices very reasonable and a nice scenic walk through town to get there.

I experienced good service in a nice atmosphere. I was in for an early dinner (6:30 or so), so there were few people. Service was prompt and the food was good, though not particularly memorable. The pricing, especially for the Sintra area, was excellent. This...More

Look, I’m a pretty easy mark for leaving a glowing review. I basically always do. That’s why it hurts to leave a mediocre one here. This is a split review. The food was fine. I had the Octopus, which had a nice flavor and good...More
