“Excellent all round meal”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Just down the slope from the station, we found this, but hesitated to enter as it looked a tiny little place and the menu on the door was only in Portuguese, but the prices looked reasonable, so we took the plunge and soon we found it was much bigger inside and the waiter swiftly bought us an English menu which gave us plenty of choice. I went for the diced pork with diced roast potatoes and salad and my wife chose the pork steak in coffee sauce which sounded like a novelty dish but she reported was delicious. Mine was pretty good too. A wide range of desserts on offer, I chose the creme caramel which was excellent, much better than the ones I've had in the UK. Very quick and attentive service even on a busy Sunday night, I found this restaurant excellent. Be brave and enter the little door and you'll find it worthwhile.

“A nice place for a quick meal”
Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Except over the weekend, when you may have to wait a bit more. Food is ok, not too expensive, staff is really friendly and location is great.

“40 years of history but nothing to write home about”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

This restaurant sits right next to the Sintra railway station (Apeadeiro means small railway stop) and it has over 40 years of history making meals.
The owners are still the same and will give a nice service with a smile.
The food is uninspiring and based on some traditional northern portuguese food, made with small attention to details and presentation.
This is a place to eat average price food with low creativity. You won't have a bad experience but you will not remember what you ate a week latter.

“Local food”
Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

We travel a lot and try new things.
This place was recommended by our hotel owner and said it's where the locals eat.

We had cod and sardines. My husband who ate the cod ("bacalau") felt very sick afterward because it was swimming in oil. I did not enjoy my sardines at all. The entre sausage was nice.

We were warned they were acquired tastes so I guess if you have the acquired taste, then this is a pretty local place to eat :)

The waiter was really friendly too.
