I selected the restaurant as it was on a way up to Pena Palace and the food looked good. When we came we were quickly seated and teh service was fast and efficient. Fodd was very good but nothing special, had much better food in Portugal. Prices are excelent.

We went to the Sunday market and stopped here for a coffee. Browsing the menu we had to return for lunch. It was a beautiful day so we sat on one of the many tables outside. Filet Mignon for me - duck rice for my wife - absolutely delicious Very Portuguese. a must if you go to Sintra market

We arrived here having read mostly good reviews and after dining here, we were left feeling a little let down. The food was okay, the wine was relatively over-priced compared to many other places we have been. The service was so-so, many different staff coming to the table left us feeling like there wasn't much of a personal touch here.

This is another one of those restaurants that you really have to look for, because it is not on the “main street”. It is not exactly in the centre of Sintra, but in a small car free street north-east from it. At the entrance of this street, there is a pretty large parking area, where you can leave your car...
