We came here only for a snack on our way to the station. Lawrences toast was very very good and fresh and the service is extremely nice. Good to go there.

Located at Lawrence Hotel, in Sintra, Portugal. The hotel has two restaurants, one at street level for light fare and the Restaurant that you need to go downstairs. The ambiance is nice and the food is better. Excellent service. They also have a daily special.

Actio to buy 3 and pay 2 bier is for many person good solution. Servise of diner with historical information was perfect. We ordered medium steak, medium was ok, but service without steak knife and the meal so fresh.... is not prerfect for categorie of 5* restaurant.

We read about this restaurant in Rick Steeves guidebook, and it was easy to locate and away from the people in the centre of the town. We choose to eat outside as it was a lovely day; the service was good (although we didn't see the server very often), and the food tasty and basic. My husband had a beer... More

We arrived in Sintra and with much luck got a seat at this amazing restaurant. I had their poached salmon on a bed of curried risotto. It was heavenly. The service was exact and the atmosphere elegant.

Lawrence is a Portuguese restaurant where you should ask for portuguese food. It has two terraces were weather permitting having lunch (understand lunch as a meal to be eaten after 1.30 pm and before 3 pm) is a marvelous experience. The service, charm and willingness to offer the guest a great time is very high. As you walk you will... More

This place was probably the go to place in the 80's. That's the last time any updates have been done here. And the adults that frequented the place then are still the ones who frequent it now. The manager was annoyed that we were there and wanted to dine. The staff was out of sight for 99% of the time..no... More

We had the stunning patio to ourselves for a bit. It was an amazing break from the crowds of the rest of Sintra. We stopped in at 6 so we only had drinks and a baguette but it was all perfect.

Nice place, away from the touristic crowds which is why we choose this place. Has two terracess, one next to the road and one below. Staff is quite friendly but didn't speak a lot of English. The food was not very fancy but just good. We had sandwhiches which had chips (flat chips) on tops. The seats weren't very comfortabele... More

We ate there between palace and castle visits. We took two different pasta dishes, which were both divine (carbonara and spinach-ricotta tortellini). The waitress was very helpful, and recommended us the mouth-watering chocolate cake, which is definitely in our top 5 chocolate cakes ever! A must! Very close to bus station to many Sintra sites, so a good resting spot... More
