While at first glance this restaurant may seem a little old-fashioned, in fact it serves excellent food and has fantastic friendly service.

Quite disappointed in the food here. Attractive location in mid-Sintra's winding alleys. Might look real find, but our onion soup was tasteless gloop served at magma-like temperatures; vegetables dull and poorly presented; salmon and lamb just average, not much cheffery going on and the sweet trolley containing local puddings; the one I tried, walnut cake, tasted like ground sawdust, dry and unaccompanied by ice-creamor custard. Makes the Sintra Boutique Hotel's restaurant taste like Raymond Blanc's.

I visited twice (once with business colleagues). Nice decor, very friendly, professional and multi-lingual service. Food and wine was excellent and remarkable value. I'd highly recommend the steak, which was by far the best I've ever eaten.

I wasn't blown over by this place, after reading the great reviews. The food was good, though I forget even what I had. I know it was fish. We sat outside, which I found a little uncomfortable due to the sloping terrain and the party behind us chain smoking. The service was...confused. Overall, I just wasn't left with a fantastic impression. Average seems to sum it up.

Loved the duck with chocolate sauce. It was like a mole sauce but much better--bittersweet, not bitter, and the duck was oh so tender. We sat outside and enjoyed a lovely dinner.
