My second visit at Curral dos caprinos, and equally satisfied. The ambience is very rustic, and the staff helpful and deliver a very fast service. Upon being seated, we were served delicious olives, the famous cured ham and local cheeselets. We chose to have the mushrooms, very tasty as starters. Our main course consisted of roasted baby potatoes, spinach puree, rice with liver and the fantastic caprinos! Simply delicious and will definitely return with guests.

Having lunch with a 100 or so tourists was not choice but we were part of a tour - what a pleasant surprise as to the quality and quantity of food not to mention prompt service. We were in and out in the allocated time and we heard no complaints, especially not from us. Very local and very nice sums it up.

The grilled slices of goat meat, 'alheiras' sausage, and 'secreto de porco preto' (black pork secret) were amazing. The refried grelos and shaved ham were subpar. Service was excellent overall.

the good thing about this restaurant is that the staff are always helpful, even to the extent of choosing your wine for you and not going for the dearest option. They have a huge range. There are always regulars and local people in here as well as travellers from Lisbon and around. The food is consistently good -I've been there a number of times and on different days and times. There is a big choice of food and an interesting if quirky decor.Worth taking a taxi from Sintra if you are there -or just jump on the bus (think its the 441 but check) the driver will now where to let you off if you tell him the name of the restaurant.

The meal, the service, the atmosphere - totally worth the trip (and what a trip, along unpaved roads, yikes). The goat is their specialty so we decided to order it... delicious. Wine prices are reasonable (as is the case all over Portugal), they have it on tap and you can go up and select which one you want. We couldn't decide which dessert to get so the waiter just brought us two and didn't charge for one. Lovely place.
