“Amazing crepes amazing service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

If you'r looking for a place to remind you of how good french crepes are you should go there.
We were at Sintra for our vacations and felt amazed with a fantastic view of the Palace as we decided to go in for a sweet. The waitress was fantastic. It was busy that day but even though she was very friendly. We ordered two crepes and they were made in front of us by her. Beautifull and delicious!
Recommended for the wonderfull service and crepes!! The prices were not so great but it was worth it.
We're coming back next year for sure!

“Good location, abysmal service and very dear”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Food was quite pleasant but the service from our waiter was a wonderful impression of the an old-fashioned Parisian waiter in a comedy film who thinks customers are the lowest form of species. It took three attempts to get our ice creams as a light dessert to a light lunch and it took four requests to get the bill and pay for it. For the first time ever, we left no tip.

Reviews about prices are spot on. I noticed the couvert prices so we just had bread - no butter, cheese, olives or anything. My wife had a pasta dish and I had a salad. Drinks were one tonic water and a sparkling mineral water. With the ice creams and no coffee, the bill came to €47.

We know you have to pay for the view etc but for those prices there should be five star service and food. Not so. It was a sunny lunch - but very Cher.

“Overpriced , please check your bill”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Your bread, butter, olives and cheese that usually is something around 5 euros will be 16,40 there they asked if could bring and I said yes because usually is very affordable if not free in many restaurants,my bill came with 4 pasteis de natal that I didn't order. They took ages to bring the correct bill. Never will come back again and I also don't recommend that for anyone.

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

We stopped here for a coffee and small snack before heading out - we should have looked at the menu first. I've never paid so much for a coffee. Tourist trap extraordinaire. Service was non-existent.

“Check your bill!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Service was non-existent, though the restaurant was not busy. Eventually we got to order and ordered Super Bock beer 40cL and got charged for Imperial 60cL - when pointing this out, the waitron initially tried to argue her way out of it. We eventually got our money back, but it left a bad taste. We agree with the reviewers that stated - great location and beautiful restaurant, but in need of a serious change of attitude. Customers vote with their feet - we will not be going back.
