Cantinho do Avillez

Gastronomy in Ribeira

Rock star chef José Avillez' latest venture is a welcome fixture on Porto's gastro scene. A bright, contemporary bistro with a retro spin, Cantinho keeps the mood casual and buzzy. On the menu are seasonal Portuguese dishes with a dash of imagination: from flaked bacalhau (dried salt-cod) with melt-in-the-mouth 'exploding' olives to giant red shrimps from the Algarve with Thai spices.
