Simple, authentic, no-nonsense Portuguese cuisine served in tapas style. O cantinho de Portugal, a family run restaurant is based in the heart of Brixton in Little Portugal and with over twenty years experience, they most certainly know what they’re doing when it comes to serving their national food. The menu is affordable and flavoursome, with a price range of just £3 upwards and the best part, the portions are hearty in size, much like the atmosphere and a wine list to match.

Bar Douro

35B, Arch, 85B Southwark Bridge Road, London, SE1 0NQ 

Born out of a love for Portugal where the founder, Max, spent his childhood. Bar Douro has become a Portuguese haven for tourists and workers in London alike. Max’s family have been producing wine in the Douro Valley for centuries, so it was a given that a wine bar was opened under the name that contributed to the creation. Discover this little dose of Portuguese magic under the arches at Flat Iron Square, near Borough market.  

Take a pew at the bar within the azulejos-tiled dining room and nibble upon meticulously prepared native delights whilst sipping on a White Port Tonic. Affordable and aesthetic, Douro’s is definitely one to check off the list.  

Lisboa Patisserie

57 Golborne Road, London, W10 5NR 

Sometimes all you need is a simple cafe serving exactly what you’ve been craving. A good pastry and a coffee. The Lisboa Patisserie does just that. Filled to the brim with pasteis de nata just off of Ladbroke Grove, this haven is packed to the brim on Friday mornings and we know exactly why, their delicious delicatessen’s are all the rave. It’s even endorsed by none other than Yotam Ottolenghi himself (that’s got to mean something, right?!).

With dishes from its trading roots spanning from Goa to Mozambique, Macau to Brazil, Volta Do Mar celebrates more than just the flavours and trading routes of Portugal but also the decor reflects its colourful cuisine. A family run business that began through the tracing of their family history, the founders learnt how through food and travel their heritage had both integrated and travelled across distant seas, resulting in the name of the restaurant-Volta Do Mar- meaning; to return from the sea.  

Their aim is to celebrate the diversity and Interconnection of Portuguese food and culture across the globe, so whether you’re looking to travel with your tastebuds, enjoy a romantic dinner or try something new, we highly recommend you stop by Volta Do Mar.
