Bairro do Avillez

Bairro do Avillez’s Taberna is the informal lunch tavern of celebrity chef José Avillez. This neighborhood restaurant in Chiado is actually five concepts in one. Among other, you’ll find a grocery store here in cooperation with Manteigaria Silva, and a pisco bar with Peruvian cuisine. In the taverna, you don’t want to miss the giant red shrimp, the XL exploding olives, or the spicy horse mackerel cone. Great flavors from the traditional Portuguese cuisine, are presented in a modern way, with elements of molecular cooking.

  • Good evening from Laformadelviaggio, a travel agency from Padova, Italy.

    I was wondering if you could have the availability for a dinner with 15 people on the 30th of march around 20.30.
    If you do we’d like to make a reservation.

    Please let us know, thank you very much!

    Best regards,
