They did not have the ones listed on their wine wine list. The veal in cream sauce and mushrooms was so full of gristle and bone that most of the meat was inedible. The pork cheek stew was good. I do not recommend this restaurant...with all the other options available in Sintra.More

The pork cheeks in stew was delicious. The veal in cream sauce with mushrooms was poorly butchered. Almost a third of it was gristle and bone. With the meat being covered, it was difficult to cut it without running into bone. Further, you could not...tell where the gristle was. It was a very good wine.More

Very nice local Portuguese restaurant! Good food, huge portions, friendly service, good prices (two of us ate and shared a litre of wine for 40€). House wine wasn’t the best (my Portuguese boyfriend wasn’t impressed) but still miles better than the wine we have in...the U.K. Full of locals but still felt Covid secure - sanitiser at the entrance and everyone wore masks. Would come back here again.More

This restaurant in Sintra had wonderful food and service for my 18 students, our guide and bus driver. The vegetarian option was outstanding. Plenty of space, still very cozy. We liked the fact that locals were present, not just tourists. High- quality food and ambiance....Beautiful place, highly recommended. It is outside Sintra’ center, so you need a car to get there.More

All in all a good experience. I've been here several times over the years, with varying degrees of satisfaction. It's not 100% typical Portuguese food (they also have Moussaka and stroganoff, for example) but it's more of a Portuguese home-style type of food, to some...extent at least. Last time I was here I had the pork cheeks, which were tasty and in abbundance (came with fries, not on the photo). The staff were nice and service was ok, even though it was a Saturday. I believe overall the quality is ok but maybe adding a bit of salad or vegetables as a side would make the menu lighter and more modern - thus, more appealing.More

We had a really bad experience here. The food was just bad. All the food came waaay to fast to be made fresh. The cannelloni was one of the only vegetarian options and it was awful (the sauce was too sweet and definitely not made...with fresh ingredients). The duck was over cooked and chewy, and even the fries were soggy. Not worth our time or money. They took off one cannelloni off our bill but it was still pricey and the staff was rude about it.More

Great place for lunch. Very rustic, but nicely presented. Our leek soup was tasty. The lunch total for a bread basket, goat cheese, olives soup and 1 draft beer & 1 coke plus 2 leek soup bowls was about 13 Euros. Handy Hint: The bread,...cheese & olives & butter were already on the table when we were placed there. They only charge you for what you eat. Beware! - we couldn’t get Uber to work properly as the so- called free internet was bad.More

My wife and I enjoyed lunch in this traditional restaurant populated almost entirely by locals. Special starter was mussels in garlic sauce. They were the best mussels I have ever had. Better than in Belgium or France or the USA. Mains were pork; well prepared....This spot is well worth a try. Staff is friendly and eager to please.More

This place is one of many good eateries in Portugal. The ambience is good, the service friendly, the portions sufficient for a big hunger and still very reasonable prices. If there is any criticism it would be that the menu fits on one page;-)
