Perfect is the word for the dinner we had with my beautiful girlfriend.

We both had a different menu, and both of us were ecstatic.

Appetizers kept coming, each more original and tasty. Our dishes followed accordingly.

And on top of this, service was 5 stars.

Pricy, yes. But certainly worth it ! Enjoy as we did :)

Without doubt, dining at Belcanto was one of the best (if not the best) experiences ever. From the moment you set your foot into the place, something special is going on. Everything was perfect: the reception, service, atmosphere, advising on the wine .. and I still haven't mentioned the food. Eating at Belcanto is more like admiring the piece of art than just eating - all dishes are brought to a perfection and give either flavours you haven't known before or the flavours that are combined in unimaginable new, innovative ways. A simply perfect evening!

My partner and I visited the restaurant last night, after reading the extremely positive reviews here on Trip Advisor, so we felt we couldn't give it a miss. From the moment we stepped foot into Belcanto we seemed to be treated. A visit to the restaurants kitchen and an insight into the restaurant's ethos began our night, with it's strong roots in the traditions of Portugal evident, yet with all the contemporary twists you'd expect from modern cuisine. The service was attentive, relaxed and the staff spoke a variety of language fluently. The food was outstanding (SPOILER ALERT: particularly the all olive amuse bouche) with traditional dishes such as fish also being given an experimental twist. We had a glass of wine per course, which I'd highly recommend, as our sommelier was as knowledgable as he was charming. Finally the price - although expensive (averaging out just over €100 per head) it was definitely worth every penny. A must-do if your budget can stretch.

Two nigths in Llisbon and two great meals. Both at a very high level with very good food, wines and service. This one were a little bit more expensive, around 100pounds. We found this more for tourists.
