Forget the dubious and overpriced 'pleasures' of 'tourist' Sintra and head down the hill a bit to this little gem.

Excellent service, delivered with good humour, informed advice and guidance on dishes and wine, and a very reasonable bill.

Altogether worthwhile and highly recommended.

The ambiance and food were amazing. The smoked duck and rice was fantastic. The wine selection is awesome. The late night music is legendary. You will not be disappointed.

Taverna with an equally surprising first class wine cellar as musical experiences. A meeting place for more than celibriteter of culture. This is a gem and everyone has a big heart for what they do, as well as owner Fernando, who Friday & Saturday night doing his gigs with music stars and friends after dinner.

We had a family lunch here after a full morning exploring Sintra.
It is a smallish, quaint and interesting restaurant and bar....and with loads of music thrown in, be it a jig, jam or a weekend band with great singers too!
We had uma delicia Portuguese food...and great vino of course. Service was efficient, and always with a smile.
It is v popular with a majority of local clientele, so we know we are in good hands as far as food and vino is concerned. The baked codfish (bacalhau) with layered vegetables was excellent, so was the grilled seabream!
We enjoyeda delicious dessert farofias, great coffee and music and singing afterwards. Being the only Asian in the group, I was pleasantly surprised when I was presented with a CD of their music....REAL COMPANHIA...De volta a tradicao!! Some great music truly and some genuine Portuguese hospitality. Obrigada Fernando !!
A great place to hang out too!

This restaurant and bar is a place to eat, or go for a drink if you are in Sintra....

The food and service are fantastic, and almost everyday you can find also good music in the bar!....

You can go there only for the bar/music but I recommend you to try the best of the portuguese cuisine. A typical place to enjoy!....
