No other restaurant makes Portuguese cooking as modern and unpretentious as the Cantinho do Avillez. The front of house, Jose Avillez, is currently one of the most respected chefs in the country and has four restaurants in Chiado, a sophisticated area of the city. Despite earning one Michelin star for his restaurant Belcanto, just a few metres away, The Cantinho remains the favourite for artists and local politicians by combining a good atmosphere with good food. Everyone is able to try a great hamburger with foie gras, the famous partridge pies, sautéed chicken livers or bacalao (salted cod) with bread.
