Superstar (but notoriously spotlight shy) chef José Avillez is almost single-handedly responsible for cementing Portuguese cuisine on the world stage. His somewhat formal two-Michelin-star restaurant, Belcanto, is the pinnacle of Portuguese gastronomy. Choose the classic tasting menu (€165), and your tastebuds will be wowed with signature dishes such as the chef’s most famous work ‘The Garden of the Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs’ (egg, crunchy bread and mushrooms). Go with the Evolution (€185) menu, and unleash the kitchen’s creative mojo with blind-sidingly good dishes like sea bass with smoked avocado, pistachio oil, lime zest and dashi. Either way, expect Portuguese cuisine, re-calibrated.
