Wonderful meal, service at a good price. Soup was excellent. We had lamb chops, and mixed seafood. The waitstaff really help me by getting me an ice bag from my injury need. The spinach ,broccoli and potatoes served with main dish were exceptional.

Went here for lunch after visiting the palace. Fresh and tasty tapas with wonderful portugese flavours. It is in a nice and quiet alley. Perfect break from the heat and bustle of tourists.

Stopped in a back street for a light lunch. Had some nice soup and tapas washed down with a cold beer. Both food and service were very good, and at a reasonable price given the touristy location.

My husband and I are staying in Sintra for a week and have eaten here three times...it is a great place to stop for a bite to eat while sightseeing, dinner, or drinks outside--it is not fine dining, but rather a casual restaurant. The staff...More
