We had seen several YouTube vlogs citing this as a must visit and it did not disappoint. It was very busy but turn around of tables meant you did not have to wait long. Had we been a large group things may have been different...however. The menu comes as a tick box style so ordering is super easy. There is a huge choice of tapas and the stand out for us was the pork cheek. The food is excellent and very rich which some people with delicate stomachs may find a bit much but with so much choice you're bound to find something to enjoy.More

Perfect spot for lunch away from crowds of town center. Walk up the hill past the shops is worth it. Tapas of fried shrimp, mushrooms and grilled vegetables, and spare ribs were more than enough for the two of us for lunch. Flavor of each...dish was excellent. One of best meals we’ve had during our 2 weeks stay.More

We had a bit of a wait to get into this restaurant but was worth it. Generous portions, lovely rustic food - felt very authentically Portuguese. A lovely little gem amidst the touristy other options

If you’re in Sintra then I recommend you search out this restaurant. Hidden away a little up a side street, we came across this restaurant by accident - but had a fantastic tapas meal outside. I highly recommend the Ribs, Prawns and Octopus. Hidden gem...worth seeking outMore

Beautiful restaurant with really nice food - plenty of choices for the tapas or a great option of sandwiches if not feeling the tapas. We attended as a group of four, two opted for the tapas and the other opted for the steak sandwiches. All...people were very pleased with the turnout of the food and the portion sizes matched the prices. The restaurant is located at the top of a steep hill, but that is the whole of Lisbon. Just to make others aware.More

Had an amazing time at Tascantiga! The ribs were juicy and flavorful, the sandwich was fresh and well-balanced, and the octopus was simply delicious. Tascantiga has won me over with its fantastic food. Can't wait to come back for more!

We came recommended by a tour guide in our visit to Sintra and we all thought it was lovely. Delicious food and very quick service. I really liked the bolinhas de bacalao and the bacalao salad with chickpeas.

We had a lovely lunch at Tascantiga during a day trip to Sintra. Loved that it was a little away from some of the busier streets and the square. We had a table outside. Staff was warm and attentive and food was delicious. Highly recommend...the pork cheeks!More

Probably one of the worst food experiences I’ve had in Portugal. The prawns came out in a soup of butter with no flavour or seasoning. The Octopus blades were unevenly cooked with also no seasoning. The salad was awful- barely any lettuce or anything. Drinks...were OK. Wouldn’t recommend.More
