This was our second port o'call during a day trip to Sintra, the former home to Portugal's royal family, and like other reviewers we were unimpressed by the food quality. The soulful Fado was the best thing about the place. Avoid

The aperitifs tast like canned food and not fresh at all. Soft drink was warm. Employees arguing and screaming with each other. I'd strong recommend to avoid this restaurant. Save your time and money, go to a real restaurant.

Went here with my husband to hear Fado music. We were told when going to hear good Fado music not to go for the food and I would say that is true. The music was excellent and it is a very intimate restaurant. You will...More

Location was good. That's it. The food was nothing out of the ordinary and highly overpriced compared to other restaurants and it took about 50 min to get 4 tapas. The octopus (main course) we ordered was overcooked and the waitress said that it was...More
