Food here was delicious. This restaurant is definitely worth your time and is vastly superior to most of the fare in the main touristy area. We had delicious pork alentejana, veal chop, and sirloin. Great service.

Shellfish Casserole - this was the best meal we had in Portugal. You can tell that the owner is very serious about maintaining the standard of the restaurant. They've probably cooking the dishes in exactly the same way for decades.

This restaurant is located not far from the train station, not near the tourist restaurants in the old part of Sintra. It has a very traditional atmosphere and is somewhat old-fashioned with no outdoor seating. From the outside, you'd almost miss it. However, the food and waiter were wonderful. The waiter was able to answer questions and give suggestions. The food was delicious but not over-priced.

Tips: They do not open for dinner until 7pm (19:00). We arrived around 7:20 and were the only couple in the restaurant until around 8:00pm. Also, it was very quiet on top of that because their music system was broken, but the waiter smiled and laughed happily when I played music at our table from my cell phone.

We wanted to escape from all the tourist restaurants in the old part of Sintra and encoutered this place. It was old fashioned and very good standard without being over-priced compared to some of the tourist traps. Monkfish kebabs and a big portion of garlicky cod served us well with a decent house wine and coffees to finish. Not the most imaginative restaurant but decent regional food in a traditional atmosphere. Recommended.
