“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Average really says it all about this Restuarant. The food averages out (good pasta, bad pizza, OK sausages= average). The guys that work here are all nice and friendly. Service was decent and the bill was very reasonable. This is not the kind of place you make plans to go to, but it is OK if you are just walking around the historic center and want a place to eat. They have a very varied menu, so something for anyone's taste. Plenty of outdoor seating.

“Great little stop, assorted menu, outdoor seating.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

A nice little place off a side corridor in the heart of Sintra. Fairly diverse menu, had a good seafood soup in a bread bowl. Decent prices for the area, recommended.

“A hearty meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

It was pouring cats and dogs in Sintra. Ducked into this place up a flight of steps for a meal in the hope that during this the rain would abate. Hearty home cooked Portuguese fare. Plenty to eat.

“Nasty Horrid Tourist Trap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

We were hungry after walking around the palaces and castles of Sintra and to get back to Lisbon was another hour away so we decided to stop off here and have some food. The place was busy, don't be fooled as sadly we both regretted stopping here. This place was near the Bristol Restaurant. We both choose a tuna sandwich and it was a sandwich most horrid. Had we not been hungry I would have returned it uneaten and complained about the sloppy mess of excess mayo V tuna. It was made slightly more pleasant by the cucumber which I had requested. Maybe the other food was nicer, however I did see other diners choose the cod/seafood soup served in a huge breadbun and but that didn't look appealing either. It looked as awful as in the photos. We sat outside as people were smoking inside.
