Very pleasent hot snacks to keep us going during up-hill saunter through gift shop infested alleys. Staff extra helpful and charming. Good value (better than Cafe Paris in main square).

We had a very pleasant meal but there were 2 people smoking on tables nearby which we didn't like. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had the Sardines and my wife had 2 of the tapas. The location is in the centre of the Old town down a back alley but worth it. The photo is the alley adjacent to the restaurant just to show it's quaintness

We had a lunch tapas here and it was tasty! A little bit pricey but what can you do. Very friendly staff and nice, more quiet location than the others on the main square.

Nestled in the back streets and some tables on an incline.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
Order sardine on toast, black pudding, pork loin and mixed salad.
Black pudding was best with plenty of spices and an apple jam.
Sardines on toast were disappointing as three small crostini with minimal amount of fish.
Prom loin was
Ike a cold salami which I wouldn't have ordered if described as sausage or salami style.
Seats indoors and upstairs a available too.

We had the vegetarian dish, which despite being awkwardly named was actually quite good (though it didn't have as much veggies as you would expect) and the fish of the day was perfectly cooked. Overall really friendly service, and prices pretty normal for the centre of Sintra.
