Cantinho do Avillez

A labor of love from executive chef Jose Avillez, this trendy, casual restaurant is located in the buzzy Chiado neighborhood. Traditional yet modern, Cantino do Avillez is bedecked in reclaimed Portuguese ceramics and modern, fresh balsa wood reminiscent of Scandinavian design. Avillez (awarded a Michelin star at Lisbon favorite Belcanto) manages to walk the same fine line with his cooking: the menu features highbrow fare but manages to remain appealing and accessible. Highlights include delicious marinated scallops, homemade steak sandwiches and the signature chocolate cake.
