“Quick and great value”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

If you are in Sintra at lunchtime, and want more than a sandwich, but don't want to pay tourist prices then try this place. A little away from the main centre, but a pleasant shady walk from the Palace round past Parque de Liberdade, to manel's, tucked away beside the Camara building, which is worth a look.
Daily set lunch is €7.00 and is basic, but well prepared, and consists of bread, olives, soup a choice of daily mains, a drink and coffee. Dessert is extra. The grilled chicken was average ,a bit dry, but a good waiter and hot food made it a great value experience. Compare to the same total price for a slice of cake at Cafe Paris in the centre!

“Home made food”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Friendly staff, quick service, and the most important! Typical Portuguese food, home made by Dª Fátima.
Very good you should try it.
And the price for a complete meal (soap, plate, drink,bread, desert and coffee) 7€

“wonderful value, authentic”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

stumbled upon this place after ditching the nearby hippy new-age vegan restaurant and its crazy prices. this place had the "menu" option for lunch; 7 euros for entree, drink, salad, and desert. i had the golden fish (dourado i think?) and it was delicious. our waitress was very nice despite how busy they were. i would highly recommend this place for a good cheap authentic portugese meal while in sintra!
