After requests from many customers and following
its success in Chiado, “Cantinho do Avillez” arrives
at Mouzinho da Silveira Street, in Oporto.
“Ever since Cantinho do Avillez opened, many customers
from the North of Portugal asked us to open another one
in Oporto. The right location finally appeared and here
we are, ready for another challenge», said José Avillez.
«It’s the first time we will go outside Chiado, and I
believe we are ready to take this step. I really like Oporto,
I deeply trust this team that has grown with me over the last
years and I plan on coming often to Oporto to closely oversee
everything, just like I do with the other restaurants»,
stated José Avillez.
In terms of atmosphere, Cantinho do Avillez in Oporto
is also a pleasurable, welcoming and relaxed place.
As always, of course, quality is a priority. Just like in Lisbon’s
Cantinho, the cuisine is Portuguese inspired and influenced by
travels. The Menu offers some of Cantinho’s celebrated dishes:
Deep fried green beans with tartar sauce; Marinated scallops
with avocado; Sautéed poultry liver with onion and Port
marmalade; Cod with bread crumbs, LT egg and “exploding”
olives; Portobello mushrooms risotto, bacon, parmesan and basil;
“Barrosã DOP” hamburger with caramelized onion, foie gras
and french fries and Hazelnut 3, among others. There will
also be some new ones, such as “Portuguesinha” (Portuguese
“cozido” pie); sautéed scallops with trout eggs; asparagus,
saffron and lemon risotto and crispy game sausage with BT
egg, smoked tomato and rapini rice and Chocolate 3.
