If you want to go to a friend’s house for dinner but have no invitation, then go to Alcântara 50, where you will be friendly welcomed by Sr. João with a big smile, just like old friends do.
Alcântara 50 is a very cosy, typical Portuguese restaurant located in an overlooked street in Alcântara, where you feel like you’re in a typical grandparents’ home, with table cloths in square patterns, decorative plates on the wall, old kitchen appliances all over the room and, of course, the warm and joyous manners of the couple that runs the restaurant.
The best plan is to ask for the house wine and let Sr. João decide the food that suits you the best. In the kitchen, traditional Portuguese food is brought to the 21st century in the most majestic way especially for you and suited to the circumstance that brought you there.
Your appetite will leave Alcântara 50 completely satisfied by those small doses of Alheira’s meatball or the yummy breaded goat cheese; your eyes will remain in awe of the rustic beauty of the place and your heart will be absolutely eager to go back another day.
