I wouldn't doubt to go there again or recommend it to visitors, lovely fresh food and very friendly staff. Wine is is just outstanding and you dont have to watch your sepnding, prices are very reasonable. You will need to make a reservation in advance.

This place is very small and pretty difficult to find. It looks more as very small kiosk with couple of tables and a kitchen behind. We did like the food, but we found it a bit pricy for the size of portions and the surrounding atmosphere. Since it is such a small place, be prepared to smell of all kitchen... More

Our meal was simple but delicious. Well prepared, fresh and tasty tapas. They have a nice range of dishes and each one we tried was excellent. And at their prices, it's an unbelievable value. The place is tiny and filled up quick so you may want to call ahead.

This place was sinply amazing. We got there early since we didn't have reservations. The place is quiet, very attentive, and the food is divine. Trust the reviews and stop in! Also we emailed the staff asking for a recipe for the beef dish and they were so kind to send it.

This is a tiny little tapas restaurant so you must make a reservation. You won't be disappointed - just about every dish we tried was excellent and we re-ordered several. it is run by a hard-working husband and wife team who certainly deserve their success, and the food and wine recommendations were very good. Amongst other things we tried the... More

We had a very good time at this charming little restaurant. Food was excellent and service was so warm. You can pick up anything on the menu and you sure will appreciate it. Very reasonable prices.

Tiny place a little outside the center of Lisbon serving Tapas-style dinners. Best to make reservations in advance as the place has very limited seating and gets crowded with tourists and locals. We visited on August 1st and were positively surprised by the service and the coziness of the restaurant. On top of that the food (tapas) and wine were... More

Cantinho Lusitano is a typical Portuguese "tasca" where you have "tapas" or "petiscos" as they say in Portugal. Really good location in "Principe Real". The place is quite small and the service is very nice. We had a fantastic "farinheira", "pataniscas de bacalhau" (Small Cod cakes) and also tried the octopus. The price was fair: around 40 euros for two.

Small restaurant with just a dusin tables. Special atmosphere and very reasonable prices. Might have been a better experience If the waitress had more time for us, but as the place was packed, she barely had the time to take our orders (after a long wait). Food was allright.

Genuin Portuguese food made with love and respect. Try the goat cheese with rosemary and honey, it's delicious!!! The service is great as well. But make reservations, there is only room for 18 guests.
