“OK Place”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Not as good as expected. The soups were so so. The pizza being OK, but little portion. But the waiters were very friendly. Probably we should have had pasta there.

“Sunny lunch spot”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Stopped here mainly for the tables in the sunshine, but we would visit again whatever the weather. Very good service and a very extensive menu. We had one of the 3 course set menus with grilled fish and salad and it was nicely cooked and very tasty (although not as cheap as many touristic set menus in other tourist spots).

“Great for lunch”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

We stumbled across Bristol after visiting the Moorish castle and trying to find our lunch very late in the day (16:00). Most other restaurants close their kitchen at this time, but Bristol's stays open. The restaurant is a mix of day trippers and a few locals. The family of the owners were at a table nearby enjoying a meal during the off peak times.

The menu is expansive and very affordable. We attempted ordering in Portuguese and were very accommodating. They offered us Menus and spoke English to supplement our lack of fluency. The cheese plate was a great starter and the food was fresh and tasty.

Not the fanciest of places, but not a tourist trap either ( like I originally expected from the outside). A great place for a lunch in Sintra.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

We really enjoyed our experiece at Bristol's. My daughter is "gluten free". We spoke with the chef and were assurred that we would be fine. We had a great meal and terrific service. I would move to Sintra to eat there every day! Every part of the meal was great, including the bill! The price was very resonable!
