In Alfama, hop onto the Boi-Cavalo restaurant

The rhythm inside the kitchen is the same felt in the streets.

This signature cuisine restaurant stands on what was once a butchery and is a success in the gastronomic panorama of Lisbon.

With rock music, meat hooks on the walls ans tattooed chefs, the Boi-Cavalo restaurant has a unique aesthetic that makes it one of the star-restaurants in the Alfama/Mouraria districts.

Here, the steamed duck with eel dumpling and pear, or the chicken with lemon peel preserve and fava bean puree are delicious, and so is the valrhona chocolate mousse with chocolate nougat and orange cream.

The service is sometimes slow, but the fusion of flavors of Portuguese tradition with new methods of cooking is worth the wait. Is is recommended to make reservations
