Several types of food, but baby goat is the specialty, really well prepared, and a very good list of wines either, great option in Sintra!!

Traditional restaurant with fantastic food, it will be difficult to choose what to eat, with so many good options. My favorite the duck roasted in the oven. Mr. Pacheco and his family welcome you warmly and with an excellent wine cellar.

Most people in Portugal eat roasted quarters, half or full cabritos, which is served with quartered fried potatoes. I've tasted that from my friends and it was tender, moist, lovely cookies cabrito. But I went instead for the grilled pieces and it was even more delicious.

This Restaurant was recommended to us whilst on holidays in Cascais. I was looking for something quite tradicional for my Son's birthday, and Curral dos Caprinos, met my expectations. The restaurant is located on the outskirts of beautiful Sintra, and has plenty of parking. We were able to book the table (recommended for parties or large groups) with one the... More

We had lunch included in our cruise ship's tour...so I wasn't expecting much. What a pleasant surprise! The staff were courteous and attentive. The room was comfortable and the wifi was fast and free. Last but not least, the chef knew what he was doing. The food was not only plentiful but also served hot, fresh and delicious. This is...

We stopped here as part of our cruise ship tour so much was prepared and not a typical meal. Our preordered meal came in waves and it was not bad but not spectacular either. The taste was good but because we were not seated with the rest of our group, we actually "missed" a course. It was more important to... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hosts at Quinta do Sao Tadeu and no wonder. Excellent, authentic Portuguese food; delicious, generous and so unbelievably reasonable. This family has had this restaurant for 40 years and they know how to make you feel welcome. Forget the town centre, this is the real deal.

One of the best meals I have ever had in this typical restaurant. We went in a group of people and I will never forget the flavors and how good was the goat cheese. We had a big variety of appetizers at the beginning including the famous goat cheese, bacalao, olives, etc. Then the main courses included caprino, beef/Pork/seafood skewers... More
