Very inexpensive and authentic local cuisine. We sat at the counter and had fun watching everyone in the kitchen working like crazy. My wife loved her fish, my pork was so so, was translated in English as "ribs" but it was actually (rather dry) bacon. Anyway recommended for eating a large meal on a budget. A bit away from the...

We stumbled across this local restaurant just near the Municipal council as we were staying at Sintra Bliss House.. What a local gem away from the maddening crowds. The menu is limited as they only cook a few dish types. The space is a bit small with the locals standing at the bar for a coffee. It's cheap as well,... More

We were pleasantly surprised at A Tasca do Manel. Arriving in Sintra we were looking for a cheap place to eat and we found this restaurant.

It is near the city hall of Sintra (2mins walking from the train station). You defiantly should ask for the daily menu that brings, bread, soup, drink, course and desert for a cheap price! And the quality if very good. Typical Portuguese cousin and if you are low on budget or not, this is the place for you!

It was delicious Portuguese lunch served within 10 minutes. The cafe has two small rooms - you should be prepared. Nevertheless the food was really tasty and cheap!

This Tasca is not only in a central location next to the town hall, it is also filled with locals rather then visitors all enjoying the simple and very fresh food, there were two main dishes on offer on the day we went: Bean stew with seafood and pork rib - both lovely, full of flavour - simple but delicious....

Went looking for a place to eat in Sintra. Asked a local for directions and he recommended here as good local place for food. Well cooked food and friendly staff. Once you break the ice! Good find before you hit the trail.

On a stop to see beautiful city hall we found this economical place with surprising good food and nice service. Close to train station and with parking meters for those who bring cars. Choose a complete dish of the day with drink and coffee included for 7 euros.
