15 of the Best Restaurants to Try in Sintra, Portugal

When you think of Portugal, the first thing that comes to mind may not be the food, but how sunny it is there. On our trip last year to the Portuguese Riviera (Sintra, Cascais, Lisbon) I had some of the best food, pastries and wine that I’ve ever had! If you’ve never tried white port or muscatel you are definitely missing out. I had the privilege of spending a lovely five days in the Sintra mountains which meant lots of opportunities to explore the towns’ (and nearby villages’) best eats. It didn’t disappoint : )

Nortada

Is based in Praia Grande – It’s a Michelin recognised restaurant, in a beautiful location overlooking surfers riding the powerful waves crashing into the beach. It’s perfect for a romantic meal. I had the shrimp moqueca and it was outstanding.

Incomum

Incomum is a charming little restaurant in Sintra. The servers are friendly, and it was a great way to celebrate Sonny’s birthday. As a restaurant by Luis Santos, the food was incredible.

Confraria Sushi

A very cool spot for sushi in Cascais. There are bright walls with incredible art. Black and white stripes cover the floors and outside awnings. The plates and sushi are artfully presented. It’s an experience of the senses and not just the taste buds!

Nau Palatina

set in Sintra, away from the city centre but one of the best restaurants in Sintra. The waiter talked us through everything on the menu with chef recommendations. The interior was intimate, romantic and candlelit – a great way to spend our last day in Sintra.

Suntria Cafe

Based in one the busier Sinta streets. We visited during early evening, so it was very quiet. The food was wholesome and filling. The staff were friendly, and gave us complimentary pasties de nata, which was our first time having them.

Casa Piriquita

Come here for Portuguese pastries galore! You’ll be spoiled for choice in there! Also remember, it’s cash only

Taverna dos Trovadores

this is a drive up from the town centre but a very local place to eat. Through an intimate courtyard, there are a number of restaurants next to one another. The staff speak little English, however this added to the very authentic-Portuguese-feeling experience.

Santini (ice cream)

Cascais – Great place to indulge your glutenous side. Big scoops of gelato with seemingly endless combinations of sauces and toppings. Delightful to enjoy by the marina.
