Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fabulous service and the best sangria ever; full of real fruit and fantastic flavours. Had it with cinnamon and apple cake plus cream and ice cream. A treat after a day exploring Sintra.

We just arrived in Sintra and were looking for a place to have breakfast! luckily Saudade is right next to the train station. Luisa who is the manager was amazing! she made us feel welcome from minute 1 and offered us a great place to...sit. Later on in the day, we went back to do a bit of work. WIFI worked great, took calls from the restaurant with no issue at all.More

We had twice the breakfast here, because we were guests of the Saudade hotel. The personnel/ owners were absolutely beautiful and so generous. Highly recommended!

This place has a really nice atmosphere and great food. We were there for a brunch, when no other place in Sintra could offer this. There are many choices in the menu, be sure you try the sandwiches. Nice and helpful employees, clean place!

We had just Landed in Lisbon, taken a train to Sintra and were starving at 10 o'clock in the morning. Almost by accident we stopped in at Saudade and boy were we glad we did! From the great ambiance to the service and beyond this...was a great find! The food was inventive, tasty and plentiful. We highly recommend that you go out of your way (If you have to) to dine here.More

Gorgeous café close to the train station. I had breakfast here for three days (I was staying at Chalet Saudade) and each day the breakfast was superb! If you’re staying at the hotel you get a continental style breakfast here at the café, and to...be honest I really wasn’t expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised by how excellent the breakfast was. You get a really substantial breakfast, which was fresh and delicious. Just want to mention the staff too, who are wonderful. Friendly, welcoming and very attentive. I did hope to come back and eat here during the day, but unfortunately never got the chance as I was never back in time. Next time though…More

Stopped here, thanks to advise from our taxi driver, when we came down from the castle. What a great retreat! We were lucky to get a table for 8 without waiting for more than a minute or two. Very nice and personal service in a...cosy and charmingly genuine place. Huge very delicious scones, one plate enough for 2-3 persons if you´re not very hungry. Lovely tasteful coffee and well filled glasses of port and brandy.More

Stayed two nights in Sintra and were so lucky that this was right on our doorstep. It was amazing the food was fresh and plentiful . The staff were really good and fun . 5 people 5 complexed orders and then drinks with out writing...the order down and got it all right 👏👏👏. Would have gone every day for breakfast if were were there longer. They sell pottery and crafts a third of the price of the larger tourist areas. Obrigada Sintra we will come again .More
