This restaurant was an interesting adventure, but the food just wasn't as good as the previous reviewers suggested. Skip.

Authentic family restaurant, run by second generation of this warm Mozambic family. Although the menu seems simple, it is honest, the food being prepared deliciously, with love and care. And cheap. Cool atmosphere, you feel as being in Mozambique, locals, family and friends of Adam and Minda pop in, even for just a chat or some company. We have discovered this gem in 2002, visit at least 3 times a year whenever in Lisbon, tried all the food, everything is perfect. Do not forget to try the chamusos.

Cool spot, regular customers, children playing at the entrance...
I don't know much about Mozambic food, but our chicken and scampis were well cooked, no cheap fat, the sauces nicely seasoned, and the kitchen didn't forget our request considering the amount of piri-piri. Also good indian-style rice, as much as you want. Basically we were full with 10 euro, beer included.
That being said, we came on sunday easter, 5.00 p.m., and I guess we had the "replacement team", which means the bill was wrong and the food took 30 minutes for reaching our table. Thank god there was a good tv-soap.

Inexpensive Mozambique cuisine incorporating coconut, peanuts, piri-piri, yucca leaves in traditional dishes. If you find yourself anywhere near the Castelo, I suggest that you stop here. Follow the signs. The Cantinho has been around for a couple decades and is well known by local residents. Open for lunch and dinner. We ate here 3 of the 6 nights we were in Lisbon and especially liked the matapa and, Saturday-only, beans with coconut. Note that the $ mark designates inexpensive, not fast food or self service. Not open Sundays.
