Encanto, the enchanted plant world by José Avillez

Margaux Cintrano

Welcome to this enchanted place of haute cuisine where vegetables are celebrated as stars. Memorable moments await you.

ENCANTO opens for dinner, Tuesday to Saturday.
On the table, a parade of the best delicately prepared vegetables on a unique tasting menu that is 100% vegetarian, with around 12 moments. A game of colours, textures and temperatures, with contrasting and unforgettable flavours, presented in a surprising and original way.

Legumes, leaves, seeds, algae, mushrooms, flowers, fruits, eggs, and cheeses are delicately prepared and served. As the best complement, we suggest biodynamic wines, craft beers, or housemade juices, infusions and kombuchas that can be ordered a la carte or as a drinks menu.

At ENCANTO, we want to celebrate the work of small or local Portuguese farmers and cede the spotlight to seasonal products.

“Encanto is our first restaurant with a set 100% vegetarian menu. It’s an enchanted place that sprung from wanting to use the best products nature gives us and from a drive to contribute to a more sustainable world,” explained José Avillez.
