It is in the heart of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, which makes it impossible to speak of Sintra without mentioning Penha Longa, the luxurious resort that has an empire of restaurants inside. There is plenty to choose from if you just want to go there for dinner, without having to check in: LAB by Sergi Arola, with a Michelin star and the Catalan chef Sergi Arola at the head of the restaurant, has a kitchen that bets on the Mediterranean flavours but with some world inspirations, with both a la carte or tasting menus. Midori is the oldest Japanese restaurant in Portugal, with 25 years. Pedro Almeida is the chef in the front of the kitchen and has now made the first serious changes to the menu. Before starting the tasting menu - you can choose between the kiri (€ 95) or the yama (€ 130), with seven and nine moments each - the chef comes to the table to show the fresh fish of the day. Want more? There is also the Pan-Asian Spices and the Italian Il Mercato.
