About O Cantinho De Portugal

The scents of piri piri, saffron, cinnamon, and vanilla fill the air at O Cantinho De Portugal. Just up Stockwell Road from the O2 Brixton Academy, this is Lambeth’s default location for fantastic Portuguese cuisine. Their tapas alone draw a crowd, but it’s when you get stuck into the O Cantinho De Portugal’s specials that you realise that you’ve hit one of London’s motherloads when it comes to the less commonly feted pleasures of the cuisine hailing from Spain’s western neighbour.

More about O Cantinho De Portugal, London

To hit O Cantinho De Portugal’s specials menu you’ve got to get your timing right. The leitao a bairrada (suckling pig) is available every weekend, so that’s easy. Feijoada a transmontana (a casserole of beans, cabbage and meats) and cozido a Portuguesa (an equally hearty mess of potatoes, cabbage and meat) are available only Sunday, while polvo a lagareiro (grilled octopus) can be enjoyed only on Saturdays. Even rarer (so to speak), is the cabrito assado, a roast of goat only found at this Brixton hot spot on the first Sunday of the month. Mirroring this is the delicacy of arroz de pato, a duck and rice dish, available on the last Sunday of the month. Finally, there’s the pato assado, a roast duck dish that’s always popular among the London crowds down Stockwell Road come the second Saturday of the month.

There’s something charming about O Cantinho De Portugal policy when it comes to their specials, like you’ve stepped into someone’s home for lunch or dinner rather than a restaurant in London, which you’d expect to have everything you want, whenever you want it. Never fear though, this authentic Portuguese eatery keeps Lambeth’s hungry happy all week round, with a regular menu of starters, meat and fish dishes (plus a takeaway menu) and thirst-quenching Portuguese beers, too. Remember, O Cantinho De Portugal is perfect post- or pre-gig fodder if you’re off to O2 Academy Brixton!

Great food, friendly staff, and well located for a meal before heading to the O2 Academy down the road. The fish dishes are superb, successfully transporting us back to good times in Portugal. We will be back.

Great Portuguese restaurant. The food was very good and the service was also good. Will definitely go back when in London and will highly recommend it.
