This has been my favourite restaurant in Sintra. The food is lovely with quirky touches such as swordfish and passionfruit or steak with coriander. The restaurant has a lovely old-fashioned charm and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

We went here for lunch and sat outside. Then cam back for dinner and sat inside near the fireplace. It is so cute and they filleted the fish right in front of us! Our server Tomash was amazing. It was a very quiet time of the year but we still had a great time.

We went to Tacho Real for lunch. It was recommended to us by our Quinta... In spite of what others commented in their reviews, we did not mind the "musty" smell... It comes with these old stone buildings built against the rocks... We did not mind the "outdated" look... It comes with Portugal and we label it "charm"... We even... More

Hidden gem in the heart of Sintra. After the long climb and search for authentic Portuguese food, we were rewarded. Staff is extremely friendly and inside decoration is unique. Definite value for money because the food was great.

Tacho Real seems like a very traditional restaurant in the very heart of old Sintra, on the way up to one of the thousands hills of the town. We ended up there on a late Sunday evening, when all tourists had left and most restaurants and bar had already closed. Luckly we stopped over at the Tacho Real, where we... More

if in Sintra on a one day excursion from Lisboa on your own, then this place is worth to stop by for lunch. located a bit above the main attractions, there are some few tables just out of the entrance, but many more inside and behind. The menue brings fish as well as meat, with an additional list of some... More

We were hiking around Sintra and decided to stop here for lunch. It was raining and we were hungry! The staff was fast and friendly, the food was so good!

Tacho Real was just what we were looking for on a late Sintra afternoon. Quaint setting, friendly service, reasonably-priced wine and tasty food. It is worth the walk up the hill. Only regret is that we were not there for a full meal at dinner.

Thank KAP
