After looking for a restaurant we came across this restaurant. And seeing that it was recommended by Routard we decided to give it a try. This was a mistake, although the Buffet at €8.50 was cheap it lacked in taste and the heaters for the food were broken. Combined with the poor cleanliness of the restaurant and the waiter and...

After some of other clients asked to put to put the... More

Good, tasty food set out in a buffet. £8.50. The restaurant is to the left when facing tourist information..... You can't miss the sign. Friendly staff.

A good and tasty variety of food for the All-you-can-eat option but you can also choose specific options, such as sardines with salad. Price for all the options is €8,50, and some options include one drink. It's not a fancy option but you will not leave the place hungry and the quality of the options is good. The staff is... More

Located just next-door the Sintra Tourist office, this restaurant offers a buffet lunch at reasonable price, 8-9 euro. The buffet includes a variety of pastas, lasagne, there is a choice between roasted meat and stew, or ham, sausages and for vegetarians there are salades and plenty of vegetables. If you want to avoid the crowded restaurants in Sintra and if... More

Terrible food, but maybe due to low season and the lack of food turnover in the buffet. Your best bet during off season is the sardihna menu, decent taste (but the salad was really lame, and the dish is overall not enough to stuff a male stomach)

We found the restaurant accidentally while being very hungry after walking for 6-7 hours around Sintra. The other places we looked at offered a sizeable portion+drink for a minimum of 15 Euro. Here, we got a buffet with many great options and unlimited refills, plus a drink, for about 10 Euro. The food was hearty, home-style, well-cooked and tasty. When... More
