This was our second port o'call during a day trip to Sintra, the former home to Portugal's royal family, and like other reviewers we were unimpressed by the food quality. The soulful Fado was the best thing about the place. Avoid

The aperitifs tast like canned food and not fresh at all. Soft drink was warm. Employees arguing and screaming with each other. I'd strong recommend to avoid this restaurant. Save your time and money, go to a real restaurant.
