After having read so many wonderful reviews we decided to stop by for lunch on a Saturday.
The food was delicious, but the waiting was just too much. We waited more than 1 hour for our lunch and the place wasn't even completely full. We didn't get to try the desserts because, well, we had already spent way too much time.
I'd honestly like to go back, but have some serious mixed feelings.
Aside from the above the service was polite but friendly and the decoration was simple and sober.

Absolutely the best meal we had during our stay to Portugal (including when we stayed in Libson). We loved it so much we went back twice. In particular try the scallops with mushroom and lemongrass risotto & the pork loin with polenta. Absolutely divine.

The service was lovely as well and they have a great wine list. I highly recommend this place when you are visiting Sintra.

Everything was fresh and creatively done; the sea bass was exceptional, so was the creamy desert (unfortunately I don't remember it's exact name). Also the proposed wine was great with the meal. Truly enjoyable, in a country known for good food!

If you think this is the best food around here, you are mistaken.
The food is good, but not outstanding. You can feel the butter in every sauce and that makes an easy way for a good flavour.
The olive oil everyone says is amazing for Portugal is very very common, if you really apreciate olive oil buy one at the local supermarket and compare. Choose one from cold procedure and less than 0,7% accid.
We had pork with Xerém (corn purée). The Xerém is more dry than should be, the meat it's ok.
The grilled octopus is very good, it comes with sweet potato. I recommend this option.
The crab soup is really good if you enjoy the natural taste.
The fried schrimp are regular.
The service varies, the two ladies are very nice, the men not really.
Due to tripadvisor is normally full, so you must make a reservation.

This delightful place has got every aspect right. We went today and had the set lunch. Before the starter arrived a bowl of olives and delicious bread were delivered on the house. All three courses were superb, beautifully presented and the waitress obviously felt passionate about her job. The set price included a glass of good house wine and all for 9.50 euros a head! You could not wish for more!
