“Fantastic local food”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

The dishes are well prepared, the service is good, the flavours confirm you that your are on holidays in Portugal.
We enjoyed the cabrito assado no forno, and as starter we ordered the 'cogumelos a caprino'. It was too much ! so we did not have the opportunity to taste the desserts that also look very appealing to us. Go there if you want to experience local food in local ambience. It is difficult to find. We arrived because we had a local showing us around Sintra.
The address Estrada da Varzea, Cabriz 2710-125 Sintra

“The portuguese tradition has a name: Curral dos Caprinos”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

I go to this restaurant since I was a child with my family and it never deceived me. My favourite dish is "Cabrito na Pucara". I live now in another country but every time I have the chance, I go there, as it is part of my history as a person.
Very typical and tradicional portuguese food. I recommend this restaurant to everybody visiting Sintra.

“typical restaurant”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

very nice food, i choose cabrito assado, but they have other varieties, if you do not have a big stomach avoid eating the ante pastos (aperitivos), like cheese, bread, shirimps, ham etc which are very nice indead, fish is aslo good. the location is not so easy to find, a good parking is available free.

Reviewed February 15, 2012

It was a restaurant built in a former place of goat rearing.
The codfish balls and the goat legs are an amazing foot with an incomparable flavor.
The service is very good to.
I was there at the lunch time.
