Restaurant Bairro do Avillez Lisbon & wonderful decorated spacious patio
Patio restaurant representing a traditional Lisbon neighborhood
The Patio restaurant is really surprising: a huge open kitchen and a wonderful creative decoration. A large skylight lets in plenty of natural light. There are different doors, typical Portuguese tiles and closed- or open windows to give you the idea of being in a traditional downtown Lisbon neighborhood, where people often hanging out of their windows.

Restaurant Bairro do Avillez Lisbon & delicious desserts
Bairro Avillez patio restaurant: tasty dishes & great ambiance
Once we were seated it took quite some time before a waiter came to our table. This restaurant just opened its doors, it’s understandable. The food was tasty, rather expensive in Lisbon (ca. € 45 p.p.), but the great ambiance was worth it! 🙂
Restaurant Bairro do Avillez Lisbon & Taberna (Tavern)
Three concepts in one space: restaurant, tavern & grocery/gift store
Once you enter number 18 of Rua Nova da Trindade there’s the Taberna (tavern), a good idea to enjoy lunch, dinner or an ‘in-between’ snack in the afternoon. In de Tavern it is not possible to make reservations.
Mercearia (grocery & gift store)
Not just cheeses, sausages and canned goods but also kitchen accessories, books and aprons. More…... (website José Avillez). The charcuterie specialties rely on the advice of the illustrious shop in Lisbon: ‘Manteigaria Silva’.
