“Fantastic food and service”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

This place was recommended to us and we were so glad we ate there. We had defferent steaks which were all beautifully cooked and the sauces were amazing. The cheese, bread and prosciutto offered were also very good. We were lucky to get a table and there were people waiting by the time we left so I would recommend eating early or making a reservation. Our dinner only cost 66 euros for 3 people and including a big jug of sangria and port after dinner. The staff also spoke very good English. highly recommend it for anyone who wants amazing food whilst in Sintra.

“A Gem in Sintra”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Stumbled upon this while looking for another recommended by Lonely Planet. So glad we found this gem. The owner was on the street and a very pleasant gentleman. I ordered the squid and prawns, which was lovely and my family ordered the speciality of the house cod with cream. When the dishes arrived it was clear they should have ordered one to share. However much to their surprise, they both finished the plates! It was so good. The cheese that comes before the meal was the freshest goat and sheep cheese that I've ever had. And you only pay for what you choose to eat- for example, we were not interested in the ham, although it looked wonderful and ate 2 of the 3 cheeses and olives. An outstanding lunch all around.

“So good we ate here twice”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

This tiny place, around the corner from the church, serves fresh fish and steaks that at great food at great prices. You can get a bottle of wine for just €6! We had the fish pie, steak tulhas, and two othe fish dishes and they were all really good. It's not a all a tourist place.

“Probably the Best Value Restaurant in Sintra”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

It's not the easiest place to find, we found it by accident. Once inside it has a great atmosphere, I loved it. It is all one room where the cooks are behind a counter and you can watch them at work. I had a small salad for starter (it was huge with tomatoes, lettuce and onion and a lovely dressing) and my wife had melon and goats cheese which she loved. I then had veal steaks with mushroom sauce. It was delicious, again a massive portion with chips and rice and my wife had squid and prawns, they were cooked to perfection. We had water, and a half carafe of house red and one of house white. To finish the evening we were given complimentary glasses of Port. The whole meal came to €43, which for Sintra is remarkable. The service was excellent, the manager has a very dry sense of humour. You could see why this was the busiest place we ate at all week. It is well worth seeking out.
