CANTINA PERUANA, NO BAIRRO DO AVILLEZ

FROM SHORE TO SHORE

Long-time friends and El Bulli alumni, Chefs José Avillez and Diego Muñoz opened a cheerful Peruvian contemporary bistro in Lisbon at Bairro do Avillez in June 2017. This is the first time José Avillez represents a foreign chef in one of his many restaurant, an absolute success amongst Lisboetas.

Cantina Peruana is a fusion of the best Portuguese ingredients combined with the joy of Peruvian cuisine in a laid-back atmosphere.

Diego Muñoz chose Yuri Herrera ― a Peruvian chef he has worked with for several years ― to lead the kitchen. 

Catering the dinner service for 60 guests, the menu is divided into six “Worlds”, in order to introduce the different techniques, influences and ingredients that coexist in Peruvian cuisine, and which contribute to its richness and diversity.

Cantina also has a Pisco Bar, with classic and playful Pisco Sours and Chilcanos, and some other spirits specially brought from Perú to Portugal.

A journey to Peru without even moving from Lisbon.

CANTINA PERUANA IS A JOYFUL PLACE FULL OF LIFE. THE MENU INVITES YOU TO A JOURNEY AROUND THE DIFFERENT WORLDS WITHIN PERU, WITH ITS ABUNDANCE OF FLAVOURS, AROMAS AND COOKING TECHNIQUES.
— Diego Muñoz
