“Love this place”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I highly recommend Tasca do Xico to anyone who wants to have a good meal with a great service. I visit twice In September from the USA, and I felt in love with the cuisine and the atmosphere. Thank you Vanessa and the rest of the crew.

“Good food in a nice setting”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We tried this restaurant as per the advice of our B&B hosts. Both food and service were top notch and I would go there again.

“Overpriced. Low to average quality food.”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is the first review I've ever written for a restaurant but I felt the need to warn others. I eat at about 75 restaurants a year and this was probably the worst meal I've had in 6 months. The cod empanada was chewy and cold. The King prawns were served cold (though they should at the very least be warm). The white beans would have been tastier if they were served from a can. It was supposed to be served with cuttlefish but we found portuguese sausage. The service was very slow and very average. I will say that resto did offer my girlfriend a blanket as we were seated outside on a cool night. Overall a 2/5. Expensive and poor quality.

“Nice tasca ran by young guys”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Positive experience at this Tasca for a dinner with friends in Sintra. Staff is nice and they recommended us several dishes very particular and tasty. You can choose among tapas-like food and standard dishes. Don't miss the dessert
