Chef José Avillez describes himself as “nonconformist by nature” but the Belcanto experience is one of refined elegance. Located in Lisbon’s historic centre, the wood-panelled dining room has just ten tables. It’s a sophisticated nook of old-world Portugal where you’ll be taken on a decidedly new-world adventure. Classics like suckling pig and Portuguese pot-au-feu are given the Avillez treatment alongside experimental dishes that have made his name, such as the fairy-tale ‘The garden of the goose that laid the golden eggs’, a starter of egg, crunchy bread and mushrooms.
