Celebrity chef; Chef José Avillez restaurant in Porto, it is casual and brings the promise of something simple and yet delicious. Unfortunately that is what it is. Simple but not quite delicious. Portions are small, the flavors are quite bland and ultimately fails to deliver....More

This meal was one of the best on our trip to Portugal. The baked cheese, ham and honey appetizer is to die for. The atmosphere was fun and throughly enjoyable. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in Lisbon.

Great food from this Jose Avillez restaurant served to a trendy crowd. The service was somewhat lacking. Personally I preferred his pizza place a few doors away.

Chef Avillez (a Michelin decorated chef) is apparently a believer in the concept that anything dipped in batter and deep fried tastes better. And who can blame him? Millions of children below the age of 12, and grown men whose wives are out for a...More

Located in Chiado, the Cantinho do Avillez restaurant welcomes you with a natural blend of the traditional and the modern. Quality is the priority with Chef Jose Avillez, and so nothing is left to chance. The cuisine, largely Portuguese inspired, is nevertheless influenced by travels abroad. The menu offers a wide choice of appetizers, "pregos" (steak sandwiches), entrees, main dishes and desserts, so that the gastronomic experience can be different at each visit. The service, which is pleasant and informal, contributes to the cheerful and relaxed climate.
