I have eaten in this restaurant 10 years ago and I still remember it. I'm so happy to see it still exists and does well. I remember I had the best bacalhau a lagareiro here and an amazing bacalhau a bras (those being also the cheapest bacalhoes I've had in Portugal, but as I say, it's been some time since I've eaten here). I would love to come back and see if you can still get that delicious, authentic homy food.

We like eating off the beaten track. So, in Sintra, we took a side street and found a waitress offering information about the restaurant. So, we went. The place is small but frequented by locals as well as tourists. Most of the staff speak English or they will get someone for you. We had the roast chicken, which came with fries, rice and a salad. Very nice meal -- delicious. Staff was friendly and attentive. Really nice place.

Away from the main tourist area down a side street lies an authentic Portuguese eatery. Simple food , good quality with a highly entertaining hostess (she’ll get her phone out and show pictures of her family!) we had a fabulous lunch in a simple homely place. It might not be posh but it was clean and catered for my dietary restrictions no problem. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for a posh place to have dinner or lunch please walk away you will be very disappointed !
BUT if you are looking for an authentic place with a warm welcome and a simple but tasty portuguese food stop your quest you have found THE place!
There, you will be treated like family and you’ll feel at home straight away, bonus ? You’ll have a wonderful meal!
