Confession time: almost every Friday, a group of Time Out staffers goes to the Floresta do Salitre to share two great dishes: grilled suckling pig bacon and boiled codfish. That is however not the reason why this traditional cuisine restaurant has been in this guide since the first printing: that is because of its authentic Portuguese cuisine, from the “bitoque” steak to the cod, and its excellent service.

Time Out tips:

– Fish and grilled meat are available, some with a DOP seal.

– Their forte is oven-roasted dishes, such as their duck rice.

– Their Friday boiled cod is a classic, and so is the grilled suckling pig bacon.

Comida típica portuguesa, bem confeccionada, dos jaquinzinhos às gambas à guilho. A Floresta do Salitre é um clássico dos almoços para quem trabalha na zona da Avenida da Liberdade. E pode sempre regar o almoço com um dos vinhos da generosa garrafeira.
