Lunched here after dining here on previous trips. Disappointing meal. Room was stuffy and crowded but there was no air conditioning. A few dishes were good but others were ordinary. Service was almost disinterested. Expected a lot more. Value was ok.

This is a very good restaurant. The "couvert" is excellent, the starters and dessert are first rate. However, my wife and I chose a tagine as a main course and this was just too dry. Others in our party had "giant Algarve prawns" and Risotto...More

"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can

famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,

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.
