The outside terrace is a lovely spot to have a drink and something to eat. I had a toasted cheese and it was a large serving. It was quiet and peaceful, and an enjoyable way to spend a bit of time under the trees overlooking...More

We didn’t order the starter “converter” 2 bread, however it was provided so we thought is for free, however when we pay the bill, it was charged €5.9. It is weird, they should let us know if it’s is offered for a price at least...More

There are many beautiful views around magical Sintra, but this restaurant has a more private patio space than most, with an unobstructed panorama and quiet, relaxing atmosphere. After walking past countless shops and market stalls, it was refreshing to enter this space, with an upscale,...More

We stumbled upon this gem and had a wonderful lunch on the terrace enjoying the view. You can’t beat view from the terrace overlooking the palace. Our service and food was very good. My son asked for a BLT which wasn’t on the menu and...More

Service was absolutely terrible and I wouldn’t recommend the food either. The view over Sintra is beautiful but it isn’t worth it!

The place indeed has a great location and view as most of the reviews mention, and we would come again any time to have a sunset drink. Yet we apparently caught the place at a bad day: it turned out that none of their steaks...More

Good location, but food and service were just OK. If you can not find another place on a busy night, better than starving, but not by much.

Nice view over the town and the hills but the food was below average. Tuna steak didn’t look or taste fresh or actually anything at all and potatoes were dry. Probably a great place for a drink on a sunny day

The food was gross, but at least you get a nice view. There is really nothing more to say, just don’t go there unless you only plan to have a drink.
