Restaurant Belcanto Lisbon

Restaurant Belcanto - review by Nicole Allmann

Style: Michelin Star Rated Playful Portuguese Cuisine

Address: Largo de Sao Carlos 10 , Chiado , Lisbon
Area: Chiado

Phone: +351 21 342 0607

Price: €95 for 6-course degustation menu; €135.- for 20-course tasting plates; €31-€42 starters; €45-€60 mains

Restaurant Belcanto in the old romantic Chiado district has been around since 1958 but it wasn’t until the year 2011 when Portuguese rockstar chef Jose Avillez became the owner and gave the restaurant a new identity. The former gentleman’s club is now a chic fine dining eatery because of the wonderful efforts of architect Ana Anahory and interior decorator Felipa Almeida who made the most of the leather seats and wood panelings to create a sophisticated space. One wall lined with bookshelves cleverly spell out a Fernando Pessoa poem verse (the poet lived in this area).
The playful menu tells stories of how Portuguese cuisine evolved and developed. Diners will surely be taking snapshots of the spectacular artworks on plates. Dishes like Lombo de Bacalhau (loin of codfish), Cordeiro de leite (milk-fed lamb), succulent suckling pig, sea bass with seaweed are packed with bold flavours that will make taste buds rejoice. 
Belcanto is open for lunch (12:30pm – 3pm) and dinner (7:30pm – 11pm) from Tuesday through Saturday. Reservations are required.
