Dining at Belcanto is an experience! Starting with the welcome, the environment and the food...just wonderful! It won't come cheap but its one of those things you have to do once in a while! You can choose one of the menus or a la carte and either way you will be pleased. From the explosive olives, the reversed martini, the thing that looks life a ferrero roche but tastes completely different...its a feast for your senses!

This is one star Michelin, and it is on its way for a second star very soon. Mark my words. The food is very fine in this reasonably priced restaurant. High creativity. We were not ready for another tasting menu, so we ordered a la carte. And what he had was very good, with some nice wines and great service. This is a very creative chef, and he will go far in the years ahead.

Fancy but not upstart. Not cheap, of course, but it's one of the best restaurants in Lisbon. Really good food by Portuguese chef José Avillez. 5 stars for a special evening or lunch.

You just have to go here... Have the Lisbon menu... Worth every euro, even for me (student on low budget..). Be prepared to spend at least three hours, and some hundred euros... In in love with this place.
