Ideal place for a light dinner for two. The service is truly nice and the food delicious. You can taste really good portuguese products and as well a very good wine selection. As a bonus, the surroundings are so beautiful and calm, an authentic postcard of Lisbon.

I'm from Lisbon, and I can tell you that this is a must in Lisbon. But you HAVE to make a reservation, one or two days before, otherwise just forget to go there and try to get a table. It's a small place, maybe 20 tables.
The food it's really outstanding, the owners are a couple, the husband is the cooker and the wife is the waitress, so you get a really good service.
I went there with a friend and we tried a couple of things, and everything was just amazing. The price was really cheap also, something around 16€ per person.

As many have mentioned already, this tiny spot has some delicious food. You order a bunch of small plates and just enjoy them all. Either make reservations or get there early to see if they have room, you will not be disappointed.

It it were not for trip advisor we would never have stumbled across this little gem of an eating place.We booked in advance and glad we did, people were being turned away at the door. It's a very small restaurant consisting of a few tables and run by a husband and wife team. Food is inexpensive and delicious. We were staying at the 5 star Hotel Lapa and can honsetly say we preferred the food at Cantinho Lusitano, so much so we re-booked for our last night too. The wine is good and not at all pricey. Well worth a visit!

We were advised to book ahead at Cantinho Lusitano, which was sound advice as we got the last Friday evening slot available. A cosy little place with no more than 20 seats and very friendly and helpful staff. The wine we were recommended by the waitress was excellent and the food was delicious - the baked goats cheese being the highlight. And to see such a small amount on the bill was remarkable! Highly recommended.
