We had a very good meal here with our family. The service was great and the atmosphere had an old time, upscale feel. There is a small terrace and a much larger interior.

Enjoyable and a very nice way to finish a Sintra visit. Special and peculiar interior decoration. Some little details can be improved and will make it an excellent experience

5th day in Portugal - BEST place we've been! The owner, João Salvado is caring, funny and nice! His restaurant follows suit. The cod fish (bacalhau) is the #1!!!

Fine dining in Sintra, with a cosy dining room. Classy service with well dressed waiter & waitress, and enjoy the food & wine here: a nice chariot de desserts, with home-made tarts. There is terrace but a bit small, so it can't accommodate many guests.

Tacho real is a traditional restaurant in Sintra with good fishes and rices. Life guitar music is often available. Wine selection is good and the waiters speak English and are helpful. A good place to eat but without anything special.
