Bairro de Avillez

Top choice portuguese in Bairro Alto, Chiado & Cais do Sodré

Step into the latest culinary dream by Portugal's most famous chef – Michelin-starred maestro José Avillez – who has set up his gastronomic dream destination: a 'neighbourhood' featuring several dining environments, including everything from a traditional tavern to an avant-garde gourmet cabaret.

Once inside, your first stop is a traditional Portuguese taberna (unoriginally named Taberna) with petiscos (tapas) and exquisite charcuterie and cheese plates. Next up is Páteo, a seafood and fish-driven food court with classic Portuguese dishes, then you'll see Beco (well, not really, it's hidden away in an 18th-century chapel), which serves up an exclusive surprise gourmet menu accompanied by a sexy cabaret show. And, in case you're tired of Portuguese cuisine, there's the excellent Cantina Peruana and Pisco Bar one floor above.
