I never would have expected that in Sintra with all the tourist type restaurants that there would be a restaurant of the quality of Taberna Criativa. It is in an inspiring Michelin class. Wonderful inventive food and wonderful service in an informal taverna style. This restaurant is a delight.

Excellent restaurant for modern take on classic dishes. The Tuna appetizer with thinly sliced melon was very good. The beef entre and shrimp with lime risotto were outstanding. Service was excellent. Would definitely be back.

We loved LOVED this place. It was quite reasonably priced, considering the high quality ingredients, creativity, and fairly generous portions. We got two appetizers, two soups, two entrees, and a dessert, and regrettably, they did not have an apparatus to wheel us out. (#FatAmericans) In hindsight, one appetizer, two entrees, and a dessert would have probably been plenty for the two of us. The wine selection is wonderful, and the staff are friendly. Our server was quite funny, to include his failed attempt at a southern American accent. Will be back on our next visit.

During our visit to Sintra we ate here twice. Both times we have been treated very well and enjoyed good meals at very reasonable prices. The average main goes for €15, they are creative versions of local dishes with good preparation and tastes. You can get a nice bottle of wine for below €20. (We recommend the Case Ermelinda Touringa Nacional).

You should definitely eat there and not dwell at a low quality touristy place
