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.

This was some of the best food we had during our 14 days in Portugal. Simple and unpretentious elegance. Professional staff. Everything was delicious. Reservations required.

I took a day trip to Sintra from Lisbon a couple of weeks ago and worked up an appetite climbing all those hills at the Castelo dos Mouros and Pena Palace. On the way back to Sintra train station we noticed this little restaurant. It...has both a front entrance and a back entrance on the station side. We were welcomed and our order was taken. I was surprised at how quickly our food came. I had the Confit Codfish w/ Sautéed Vegetables and my partner had Seabass w/ Basmati Rice and Vegetables. We washed it down with a glass of wine and water from a funky looking bottle. I would highly recommend this delightful restaurant.More

Nice restaurant in a nice setting. Deep selection of dishes for everyone's taste. They even made a special plate of chicken pasta for my son with difficult taste, no problem.

Definitely the best restaurant in all of Sintra! The innovative cuisine, exceptional service and location, right in the center of town, where I had an opportunity to experience numerous choices on the menu after dining here three nights in a row; I loved everything and...every night and highly recommend Incomum!More

Ate here after being recommended by one of the locals. The food was wonderful I had the Octopus with sweet potato which was amazing. The service was comical . They were so uninterested and rude it was funny. Would I go again? Yes probably as...the food was excellent. Do they need to try and be a little bit more friendly? Probably, however it did make for a entertaining evening. Fawlty Towers.More

We had been a bit disappointed in the food on our visit to Sintra but Incomum is head and shoulders above. We asked for the house white wine but they were sold out. We were asked what kind of wine we liked and another was...suggested, €5 more expensive. We were given a chance to taste it before committing, then given a freshly opened bottle once we were happy. The garlic prawns starter which we shared was simply the best dish we had eaten in a week. We fought over the last morsel and mopped up every last drop of sauce. There was then a slight mix up and an adjacent table was given our main courses… many apologies and a very short wait later we enjoyed a generous amount of perfectly cooked scallops on a deliciously creamy mushroom risotto and beautifully tender veal with gratin potatoes. When the bill came they had already taken the starter off the bill for the minor inconvenience and the wine was priced at €14, the same as the house wine we had originally asked for. Maybe this kind of service should be standard but it really isn’t, especially in a popular tourist town where returning custom is not a priority. Do yourself a favour and venture ever so slightly outside the heaving historic centre, this is the stuff of great gastronomic memories!More

Very disappointing - based upon previous reviews we were expecting a dining experience but previous reviews are much too generous in their comments. The food here is boring and bland. Smart interior and a sort of polite welcome, despite making a reservation some days earlier...by phone we were not readily located. We ordered four starters, ranging from soup to foie-gras and clams. None of the items were exciting or particularly tasty, the foie-gras was cold and firm and served in an unimaginative way. The main dishes were overcooked and dry in general, risotto was stuck together similar to a cement mix and the pork mignon was charred too much & salty. Service is smooth and attentive. None of the plates were cooked with love, care or attention you expect but simply thrown on a plate. This is a tourist food factory, nothing more, serving uninteresting food that has little to no flavour. There are much better restaurants nearby, avoid here! At €200 for 4 people with 2 good bottles of wine we rated it 3/10.More

This restaurant seemed very promising given the reviews. Unfortunately, it was not a great experience and I looking forward to finish, pay and leave. Very cold and unfriendly staff. I felt a very tense and heavy atmosphere amongst the staff. All waiters had poor communication...skills (I don't refer to language here). No eye contact. Minimum politeness. It felt like there is something wrong going on from a management perspective. In the plate? NOTHING SPECIAL, really... The black linguine was a big disappointment. It arrived quickly, the pasta was overcooked, which, to me, suggests that it's been prepared before and kept warm... Conclusion: an empty shell. I got misled by good marketing. I don't recommend.More
