Fresh food and fast service - definitely not lacking on quality or quantity. Very tasty! Set in a cool revamped printing press area, worth a wander around before or after a meal.

My customer brought me to this restaurant in a vibrant area by the river being regenerated. Decor is very rustic and authentic. Menu is small and basic. We ordered 2 cheeses, artisan bread, olives and balsamic/oil to share as starters. Excellent. The main course choices are limited but this is fine for lunch. I chose vegetarian risotto, which was made... More

Cantina Lx in the Lx Factory is a perfect lunch spot! Their many buffet choices are delicious and fresh, and Chef Folgado’s distinctive combinations of flavors are a pleasure to taste! The staff is welcoming , the room appealing, and the prices reasonable. Definitely a great choice!

Nice place in a nice vintage/modern area like the LX factory. We went to this place for lunch following the suggestion of the Lonely Planet. We picked the lunch buffet but I should honestly say that the quality of the food was rather low. Cooked pork and chicken meat was very fat, different kind of sausages were awful. I had... More

I'm very surprised by the bad reviews and low rating of this restaurant. We were recommended to eat here for lunch by the nice lady at Landeau Chocolate and throughout the meal we kept praising her good recommendation! We had 3 different local dishes: Fried cod parcels with clam rice, Octopus on a bed of vegetable and roast potatoes, Tomatoey... More

To start, the appetizer was 3 small dishes with some sausages, 4 basket of sliced bread and 4 small portion of olives... for 14 people. Wine as terrible (and served in small liquor glasses!), service unpleasant, and... More

When you step into this industrial area at night you might be very surpassed but the odd atmosphere: LX is a mythical place! we went there at night but i imagine in day time is also very nice. This restaurant is in the first "warehouse" on the left. A vintage industrial decoration with basic but dramatically authentic elements. Very trendy... More

If you want to experience the worst service, invisible waiters, sloppy and tasteless food and a manager who is deaf to any constructive criticism, this is the place to go to!!!
