Portuguese Petiscos (small eats) and good wine
Nested in the maze of hippy chic Principe Real neighbourhood and a stone’s throw away from the Portuguese Parliament, Cantinho Lusitano is Lisbon’s epiphany of the Portuguese Petiscos (small eats) and good wine, hole in the wall restaurant. It is a sober and well-lit establishment which seats only 20, so reservations are a must. Ask for the daily specials, and try out a selections of cheeses and charcuteries, stewed snails, fava beans with cumin salad, salt cod with chickpea salad and many other Portuguese delights. For the desert the cottage cheese with pumpkin jam is a must.
