This is just the best food we’ve had in ages. We had the cataplana (fish stew) for lunch and it was memorable...heaps of seafood and vegetables in a wonderful balanced sauce. We couldn’t finish it cos it was so big and it felt like really good Portuguese comfort food. We also had very good white wine recommended for under 8euros a bottle. Service was fantastic ...friendly and helpful...we ended up returning for dinner and the sea bream and vegies and octopus were wonderful. Generous portions and perfectly cooked seafood. We loved it all and that’s hard for me to say cos i’m fussy with seafood and hate it when it’s ovrcooked even a tiny bit. Both meals were faultless. Thanks to the fab staff who made us feel at home.

Tucked away behind Sintra station, this comfortable but non-touristy restaurant provided us with an excellent lunch at a reasonable price. Highlight was a dish called "arroz com peixe". Not quite like a risotto, it consisted of a huge bowl of runny rice hiding a variety of fish and shellfish; and was delicious. It is only served for two, but my wife and I quite unable to finish it; and it could easily have been shared between the three of us eating lunch; and a nice bottle of vinho verde cost much less than it would have done in Lisbon. Efficient service, unobtrusive (if slightly odd) piped music

Empty restaurant, staff didn't care much, 80s American music, no character. Average food (cod cooked in beetroot) , while looking at trains come and go. Sinatra is a magical place to visit, this restaurant doesn't quite fit.

We went there after a visit to the castle and had Franceshinas followed by chocolate cake. The staff was super friendly and the food was great for an absolutely reasonable price. I definitely recommend going there! They also have a good selection of local wines.
