My wife and I had dinner there on two successive nights, something we’ve never done while on holiday. Sophisticated atmosphere in a small dining area and great service from the two waiters. The food was both Portuguese and international and we could fault nothing on both nights. I got great advice regarding which wines I should choose and the price of the meals was low for the quality of the food and overall experience.

An easy 5* in our opinion

We ran along the street in the rain to find somewhere for dinner on our recent trip to Sintra and stumbled across this place. And it was lucky we did.

I had the butternut squash tagliatelle and my partner had the duck with a really lovely bottle of red. They were both great dishes and served beautifully. We don’t know what the smokey potato purée thing was with the duck but it was amazing. We both had dessert and then couldn’t resist a cheese board and it was all fantastic. One of the guys there told us that the desert was made by a chef who was formerly a pastry chef at a 2 Michelin star restaurant in Lisbon.

Both of the guys working in the restaurant were so friendly and happily chatted to us throughout the evening.

When we got the bill we could believe how reasonable it all was!

If you are in Sintra we would recommend a visit!

We had a delightful dinner experience at Criativa while visiting Sintra. The service was superb- we like to share to sample more dishes and they accommodated us beautifully. The fish was divine and accompanied with delicious local vegetables. Definitely worth a visit!

This is a wonderful welcoming restaurant an easy walk from Sintra and the train station.
The service is friendly, helpful, and well informed. It is cosy and you feel surrounded by the owners passion and dedication to fine food and wine.
The highlights are in the creativity of the dishes, quality of ingredients and the superb presentation of every dish. We celebrated a special night here and will always remember it as a great experience. If you’re coming to Sintra, don’t miss this!
