“Where The Locals Eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Recommended by our hotel, Apeadeiro is a local gem, an honest decent restaurant in a town of tourist traps. The queue for a table suggested we weren't the only ones in the know, but it was well worth the wait. Seeing us struggle with the menu, our excellent waiter brought us an English menu, not a tourist one as we could cross check it with the original.

The restaurant was jammed with a great mix of tourists and locals, the locals receiving hugs, kisses and backslaps on arrival and departure, clearly they love this restaurant and it's simple, tasty food. We ordered pork chops and a ham omelette, both came with chips and salad, both freshly cooked, tasty and filling. The small jugs of red wine were delicious, and complimentary port was a nice touch and good end to a good hearty meal.

Although packed to the rafters, our waiter was attentive and very welcoming and I would definitely recommend this eatery. Two 'covers' of bread, cheese and a type of samosa(?), the two mains, two espresso and two small jugs of wine came to just under 30 Euro, great value!

No doubt the swarms of tourists are a major pain to the locals who regularly frequent this restaurant, but the secret is out, a great choice for a simple no-frills, good value lunch.

“Fantastic dinner at family run restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and it was fantastic. We shared the steak with mushrooms and the pork and clams and both were delicious. The bottle of tinto vinho - Monte Velho helped to ease a long day visiting castles. As the evening continued the restaurant got fuller and fuller, obviously enjoyed by locals as well. The glass of port and sweet pastry offered as we were walking out the door were a delightful finish to a very enjoyable evening! Definitely worth a visit!

“Very nice food, good prices excellent staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

In Sintra, it's somehow difficult to find a good not turistic restaurant. This is one of the few!
Good Portuguese food with good staff and good prices. What more can you ask for?

“Very friendly waiter who did a fine job serving 6 tables!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

We were actually recommended to go here from a salesman from a clothing store up the road from the restaurant . We wee every happy we went. Service was good. Waiter spoke fairly good English. Menu was in Portuguese and English.
We all enjoyed the bread for starter. Then 3 of us had fish of some kind. My mother had salmon
, broccoli and was happy to get French fries. My Sister had shrimp which she also was pleased with and I had cod w potatoes. Very good but boy do hugely like to cook w garlic.
We shared " Travesseiros" which is a national cake of Sintra. Then the waiter offered us Porto. Which we didn't have but instead brought us back 3 tarts as a thank you from the house.
Bill was only $44
Very pleased would go there again if in Sintra
