“Surprisingly good, good portion size”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

My wife loved her fillet mingeon with mushrooms,i loved my sirloin both cooked exactly to our request.
Beware of the bread/olives/butter/cheese thats served at the beginning - bread 1.6 euros/olives 1.1euros/cheese 2.8euros if i remember correctly/butter 1.1euros for each pack!!!
Prices just a bit high (compared to other places we have eaten in portugal), service was great and finally a desert!! And a localy made one AND A GOOD ONE (profiteroles with whipped cream and on the side a never ending liquid chocolate)

“Fantastic food, service, value for money. Still the best in Sintra!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

First came here 15 years ago. Took lunch here today. Still exactly the same. Brilliant food. Charming rapid table service from multi-lingual waiter. Great house white. Good value for money. Unbeatable.

“A restaurant for the tourist”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

There are many restaurants in Sintra and we decided to visit this one because it was mentioned in our Sunflower walk guide and had many good reviews. It is situated opposite the Town Hall. Firstly I had the chicken soup which was hot but rather like slightly greasy stock with a few bits of chicken and rice in it. For the main course I ordered steak Portuguese style – well done. When this arrived it was red raw in the middle and after another attempt at cooking was returned in much the same state. The meat was very chewy and fairly tasteless and the restaurant was unable to provide a steak knife. The potatoes accompanying it were pleasant and there was also some vegetables. Finally I had a cappuccino coffee. This was a small espresso coffee with a squirt of aerosol cream on the top.
When the bill arrived there was a charge not only for the bread but also a charge of 1.10 Euros for the one pat of butter used. This is very definitely a restaurant aimed at the tourist – none of the people there that night were Portuguese. For better quality and value there are many better places.

“Wonderful Food - Great Service”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

We stopped in for a late lunch during a day trip to Sintra. The food is superb, we had a variety of regional dishes, some wonderful appetizers, local cheese and house wine. All of the food was delicious, and I would even recommend the house red wine, a wine actually made for the restaurant, complete with their name on the bottle, so, it is actually house wine!

The service was wonderful and all of the food is very reasonably priced. We had great conversations with the proprietor of the restaurant, and he made many great recommendations for our meal. This is a great place for a lunch or dinner while touring or staying in Sintra.
