This may look like an ordinary restaurant, small and quite clinical looking by day, but at night, this place comes alive. The chef, quite by chance, was there, when we popped in to check it out during the mid afternoon. His passion for food was...More

A wonderful experience. An out of this world trip through the flavors the chef carefully created for us. The wine pairing was very well selected. Definitly worth going again.

Historically, Lisbon was some sort of a center of the world city. From this port sailors discovered other countries and brought new experiences, flavours, scents. Nowadays it still is a city that combines so many cultures, people, habits... That’s what happens in Boi-Cavalo. In the...More

It was the first time I had a tasting menu, and I was a little scared to let myself go, but l'm so glad I did. A truly magical experience. I had no idea a meal could be like this.

Being a vegetarian, possibilities of fine dining are limited. Nevertheless, I was lucky to find Boi Cavalo. While doing a reservation I informed the restaurant about my diet restriction and they did everything so I wouldn't miss the experience my carnivorous friends were having. The...More

Boi Cavalo is very expensive for Lisbon. We paid 40 euros per person for a 7 course dinner. The 7 courses were actually 7 micro courses, but, it would have been ok if the food was excellent. Some of the dishes ok but most were...More

If like us, from time to time, you want to change your dining routine and try something different: this place is for you. Not everything you’ll try can be defined by “tasty” or “not tasty” it’s much more creative, much more complicated than that! The...More

In an old butcher's shop in the old Alfama quarter, chefs and owners Hugo Brito and Pedro Duarte breathe new life to the classic Lisbon gastronomy. Revamped old friends like butcher style chuck steak or peas with eggs meet modern classics like Ox Heart carpaccio with dried tuna and pickled turnips or Clam broth with Foie-Gras. With eyes set on the future while never forgetful of the past, this bold new restaurant is unafraid to claim that in each dish you taste, in every wine you choose, you'll taste Lisbon as pictured by Boi-Cavalo: Relaxed, proud and cosmopolitan. Welcome.
