After an afternoon spent walking around Quinta da Regaleira, we were tired and eager for some lunch. This spot is so cute and we were lucky to score a table outside. The dishes are tapas style, so order a few to share.   Cod dumplings: These are fried cod fritters and I really enjoyed them. They are light and tasty. Mini tenderloin: Super tender and juicy. The sweet potato and mushroom sauce was divine and a great complement to the tenderloin. Candied pork cheeks confit: Tender with a mushroom sauce. I thought it tasted slightly gamey. Pumpkin petit gateaux: Great dessert! The cake was soft and not too sweet. The warm cake went well with ice cream. Their potato wedges looked really good at other tables and I wished we ordered some. I liked everything we ordered at Tascantiga! Service was great and you know they care about the quality of their food when the waiter tells you to stop taking pictures of the food and just eat.
We arrived in Sintra for a day trip from Lisbon. The weather was not very appealing so we quickly decided to sit down for some tapas. When we arrived at Tascantiga there were no free tables in the terrace in the front of the restaurant. However, the waiters were very kind and brought us some drinks to enjoy while we waited for a table to become free. Once we were seated outside, it began to rain sadly. Luckily the waiters quickly offered us a table inside. The food was divine and the best we have had in Lisbon all week. The price was good and was up to the quality. Service was amazing, very helpful and approachable. Would recommend this restaurant to any and everyone! Wonderful! :)
Yummy tapas that made for a perfect lunch stop in between exploring all of the beautiful places in Sintra. We were seated immediately, and we didn't need a reservation despite it being quite crowded and busy. The service is very efficient - you just mark down everything you want to order with a pencil (they provided an English menu). We ordered four dishes, which was just enough to get extremely full for two people. The dishes were presented in cute clay dishes and wooden boards (I saw other tables had what looked like meat lollipops and food in flower pots). We got the cheese from Azeitão, candied pork cheeks confit, plate of charcuterie, and fried chorizo balls. The cheese was pretty tasty and had sweet and smoky elements from the fig and smoked ham. The pork cheeks were extremely tender and coated in a thick mushroom-y brown sauce. The chorizo balls were pretty good (not too oily or dry). The charcuterie was just okay - but it sort of made me turn away from trying cured meats during the rest of the trip since it wasn't as tasty as the jamon from Spain or even just the prosciutto from Eataly in NYC. I liked all of the dishes, but nothing really stood out (hence the 4/5) but it was still a delicious meal that kept us fueled with energy for the remainder of the long day!
