Vegetarian and gluten-free options are very limited in Sintra. This healthy choice is about a 10 min walk down the hill from the main square. The cafe itself is very stylish (think California juice bar). In a big city this would be a 3 star...More

Celaics beware, this is NOT a GF establishment! They offer what they market as “gluten free” bread when the label of that very bread says “may contain gluten.” They also have a shared toaster for all toasts and pizza. The woman behind the counter today...More

Disappointing food. I got the veggie wrap - the portion was tiny and the wrap was very soggy. Avoid.

Food was healthy but a bit tasteless for me. Portions are also not very big. I had the soup (or "soop" as it says in the menu) and burger + veggies.

Came across this place unexpectedly on our way back to our hotel. Food was made fresh to order, the wraps were delicious, coffee was good and the sweet treats hit the spot.

Hugely underrated cafe (#155 of 200+ places) serving fresh and healthy food. Had vegetarian soup, quiche and two salads. They also serve great drinks, which would be especially good if it was hot outside.

I basically found this place due to TripAdvisor - it seemed like a good bet amidst all the tourist traps. And it did not disappoint. Didn't really understand what the rest of the establishment does (looked like a spa or yoga place), but they serve...More

What luck to find a gluten free restaurant in Portugal! My wife and I are both gluten-free, and eating out can be difficult. While shopping at a local market in Sintra, we were told about Ekvilibro. We ate at this restaurant three times, and each...More
