This is one of the most sophisticated restaurants of lisbon. The food is very interesting, a new look at typical Portuguese cuisine.

We had the Evolution Menu (€165/pp) and it blew us away. Shellfish was perfectly cooked and the flavours popped off the plate. We highly recommend this restaurant

We had the discoveries tasting menu, which was adapted slightly for my boyfriend's dining preferences ( he doesn't like shellfish or cheese). I actually liked his corn porridge with truffle more than the seafood version. The first appetisers were a bit whimsical, and bursting with...More

Remember to book in advance as the number of seat is limited. I went there for lunch as soon as I got off the plane from Hong Kong. The staff were kind enough to help me storing the luggage before I check-in the hotel. The...More

The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its

viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,

I would call ahead just to be sure. Whatever you choose is likely to be pretty good anyway. Ask for the Chef's table.

Jose Avillez looks at haute cuisine as a form of expression. At the Belcanto he shares his inspirations, emotions and concerns through his culinary representations and illusions. Each dish tells a story and sets out to stir the emotions of those willing to try it."
