Have had a lunch here with our guide on the way to Sintra. The place is nice and family-owned. The service was fine. The food is ok, but nothing special and was, in my opinion, somewhat overprised.

Nice place with dark interior and plastic furniture outside. Well priced considering the size of the portions. Portuguese options including veals tongue etc. Nice simple food. Not particularly scenic location but close to a large car park.
