“Not that bad...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

Try to have a table in the terrace (is covered and closed) because can have some view of Sintra... when visited, the restaurant was full of Eastern European tourists... the waiter told us that they work quite often with group tours.

Classic restaurant, food was good but the service a bit slow even though the waiter was a sympathetic one..... the prices are not cheap they were just the average (12.00 to 15.00 main dish) that can be found in any other restaurant in the area... There are other choices if have the time to wander around and look for a proper place to lunch (or dine)

“Avoid this restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2011

This restaurant is in an attractive location, and the menu looked fine. We were given a nice table with a great view, and appetizers which we began to eat. That was our mistake because we then felt obligated to stay. The service was VERY slow. When the head waiter arrived he would not give us a menu but offered only two choices, neither of which we really wanted. His attitude was overbearing. Second mistake, we should have got up and left then. But it was getting late and we were hungry. So we each ordered one of the choices. After an interminable wait, they arrived and were poor to say the least. One was a bacalhau scrambled egg thing, and the other some chicken dish. Besides the poor food, the atmosphere was tense. Altogether a bad scene and a waste of money.

“A wonderful place to have a great food in Sintra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2010

We just walked in to this wonderful place by chance and we really loved it. The fish was to die for, and one of the best fish I have ever had. The lamb was wonderful and the meat was so fresh that you could completely fall in love with the taste. The service was wonderful. We have two kids, one is 8 months old and other is 3 years old, the server was extremely nice to them. He offered to bring a wonderful carrot soup for my 8 infant and he loved the soup. He made a lot of jokes with both kids, they felt great and had a great time. Everyone spoke English really well. The server could speak Spanish as well. They were wonderful. Overall I recommend this place wholeheartedly.
