Nau Palatina

Portuguese in Sintra

Sintra's friendliest and most-welcoming restaurant is a travel-highlight star in the making. Congenial owner Zé's creative tapas are as slightly off-centre as his location, a worthwhile 1km walk from Sintra centre in São Pedro de Penaferrim. Spice Route undertones are weaved throughout the small but tasty menu of tidbits, strongly forged from local and regional ingredients.

Paired with an excellent house Setúbal red and Zé's convivial nature, you have yourself an evening to remember. Don't miss the pork cheeks!
