A little out of the way family run restaurant - and when you arrive, you'll know who runs it. She is a delight and will mother you through the meal, if you like. She went to great lengths to teach us how the Portuguese ladies at the next table eat their sardines - she even picked up my fork and teased every last morsel away from the spines. "We eat everything!" she said.

Its a family owned little restaurant in a back street Rua Pendoa. The service personnel is all women and very good. The menu is local dishes. Don't expect anything fancy but what they offer is very good and very cheap. BTW, the little dining room was full with tourist as with locals.

We tried twice to go to this restaurant, the first time at 7 pm to find out it closes at 6, the next day we walked by, spoke to someone there who told us we could do take out if we came before 6, so we came at 5h30 to be told there was only one dish available, which we didn`t want, so this was very disappointing.

It is very nice to find this little family restaurant in Sinatra. You can eat simple and tasty Portuguese food. The woman who has the restaurant is super nice and worth the visit on itself.
We paid 22 euro for two dishes, two dessert and two bottles of water which is very cheap.

Wonderful authentic oasis just off the tourist trap parts. Super friendly owner. Good food in simple, welcoming cafe. Fresh tuna salad. Good place to try grilled cod and potatos. Places like this are hard to find in Sintra.
