Good food slow service

The food was tasty, the ambiance very nice, the location also good in the heart of the artist colony. The service was very slow, took us more than half hour to get our food, but otherwise an OK experience.

Restaurant in an 'abandoned-looking-warehouse' with an acceptable variety of wine and food. 5 different fish dishes, 6 different meat dishes and 3 vegetarian dishes. Good quality food at an affordable price. I had the salmon with vegetables which was great. For dessert we shared the chocolate cake with whipped cream.

I lived in Portugal for a year and Cantina Lx was my favorite restaurant. The food is great - the octopus was my favorite but the duck is really good too. It's trendy and LX is a great area to go out for drinks after dinner.

Stumbled across this hidden jem. It was a thoroughly enjoyable meal, so much so that when meeting Aussies relatives we took them here. They said it was the best steak in Lisbon, roasted octopus was succulent, pork cheek was soft. Service was atentative, helpful and friendly. Meals for all budget. A place not to be missed and within 5 minutes... More

A lot of thing went wrong during this meal, so here are bullets points of what happened in no particular order: - - - - 35 min wait for one starter, followed by 20 min for main courses - very disorganised waiters (at the end of the meal I asked how was the manager to explain our feelings of this...

We have a lunch at this nice restaurant. The meal was good and tasty and the prices were OK. On our plates we saw quite aesthetic decorations. That is not so usual in Lisbon. The service was quite phlegmatic... but who cares. Very good experience!

The LX area of Lisbon is a fun place to visit. Art galleries, food shops and hopefully in the future lots more. The Cantina serves typical local food at very reasonable prices. The decor is great fun and it was busy with Lisbonites! Slick service and an easy bus ride from city centre?
