Our top Recommendations

Belcanto
Restaurant

in Chiado
www.belcanto.pt

Presenting the 2* Michelin where flavours are kept untouched, we strongly suggest an early reservation (closed Sundays and Mondays, credit card details are required for reservation); by Chef José Avillez, Lisbon’s top Chef with several restaurants all close to each other in Chiado.

A concept ruled by their own commandments… “[…] commandments that are the pillars that best define our cuisine at the moment. Some are abstract, others are more concrete, some are redundant, but redundancy is what makes them more resilient. […]”

Bairro do
Avillez

in Chiado
www.joseavillez.pt/en/bairro-do-avillez

A gastronomic multi-universe by Chef José Avillez himself, as you can read:

“[…] Open every day, from noon to midnight, in Bairro do Avillez, every corner hides a surprise. The world of José Avillez doesn’t fit in a single address, and this is an entire universe devoted to creativity.

Here you’ll find a surprising Taberna for those who like hearty food; the most spectacular Páteo in town, where seafood and fish are king, and Beco, this neighbourhood’s most cosmopolitan corner, where an internationally-inspired menu is accompanied by a cabaret show. […]”

Mini Bar
Theater

in Chiado
www.joseavillez.pt/en/minibarfb

Chef José Avillez at the São Luis theater offers small and varied gastronomic experiences.

“Mini Bar is José Avillez’ first gourmet bar. This place, located in São Luiz Theatre, has sure brightened up Chiado’s evenings and nights offering a new entertainment concept. Monday to Sunday, from 19:00 onward, José Avillez offers a Drink’s Menu, and to eat, small and varied gastronomic experiences full of flavour, wonder and fun that can be savoured in the bar area or in the tables reserved for dinner. This is not a traditional restaurant. Here, not everything is what it seems.”
