In theory it was not the first restaurant of José Avillez, in practice it was. Or rather, it was the first of a succession of openings in Chiado and the one where José Avillez took a step back from the high cuisine (to later give others ahead) and presented a series of Portuguese roots and foreign influences – I’ll take a MX-LX prego, please. Seven years have passed since the opening, but his Cantinho is still current, good and recommendable. And it should be remembered that this was where the mythical Avelã3 was born – trust us, and just go for it.

Perfect for: remembering chef Avillez’s first-born.
Must try: cod slivers, loose crumbs, BT egg and explosive olives.
