Lunch in Sintra

When we spotted its tiny tiny terrace, and inviting tables covered with white cloth
we knew it was our place

Restaurant Tacho Real in Sintra
is one of my best foodie souvenir inPortugal

You will be proposed the typical aperitivo
called the "couvert"
(which will then be discreetly charged on your bill but you can also refuse the aperitivo)
Inside is quiet and cool
With promising moments
Very promising moments....
And me, tonight at exactly 10.41pm,
well, I'm simply dreaming of this very tender octopus

Dear Lala, I also look for tiny, tiny places when we travel. My mouth is watering just looking at the food. The interior of the restaurant is so very charming.
Your photographs are always so professional. You need to write a book about your travels. The photographs alone would sell the book.
Thanks for sharing.

Oh my god...the cream cake, the bottles of wine, the ambience...and I think those are big green limas or favas, which I love. My kind of restaurant. You must be having a wonderful summer...and I'm glad, because then you get to share it with us!
I wonder what this weekend will bring for you, Lala. Can't wait to see.

The restaurant pictures look so inviting and simply lovely...and your pictures of Lisbon - well, elegance, beauty and Fado is what I think of when I think of Lisbon - a gorgeous city. Have a lovely weekend, Lots of Love from London, Carole xo
