Came here for lunch on a Saturday. It was fairly quiet but started to get busier as the afternoon wore on. We sat at the chefs table and watched them making dishes which was interesting and chatted to one the chefs. The food was very good, a varied selection of dishes and our waitress was extremely friendly and welcoming. We will be back.

Food was spot on. The poached cod was a favourite - stunning! Something I’d definitely want to try and recreate at home. The roasted celeriac could have been cooked longer some bits were fairly tough and struggled to cut through with a knife. We also really liked the boneless chicken wings! The restaurant wasn’t too busy when we visited but a lot of the dishes came out pretty late. I had all my dishes within 20 minutes whereas my fellow diners waited nearly an hour for their chicken thighs with red pepper sauce. The service seemed more focused on taking plates away than taking new orders for more food as well. We got the dessert menu and waited around 20 minutes before our orders got taken. It seemed other tables also were having the same issue. Just felt like more attentive staff would have been appreciated. The food was the real highlight though and i’d come again.

Food was absolutely stunning & the bottle of wine we had - I think it was Dao - unbelievable; just got better and better upon every mouthful. Atmosphere was lovely, only slight criticism was that we sat by the window & it was a bit nippy.

We loved everything about this restaurant. We sat at the chefs table and it was something a bit different. The food was brilliant, as was the atmosphere. It’s definitely going to be a firm favourite that we visit regularly.

I came with my wife and our 19 year old daughter. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was excellent. We ordered eight dishes and liked them all. We were also impressed with the service - attentive without being overbearing. I felt that £100 for our meal including wine was very reasonable considering the quality of the food. We will be recommending Canto to our friends and will certainly be visiting again before too long.

It was great having a sophisticated flare added to Portuguese cuisine in such an ambiance, Moreover, that I got to chat with the Portuguese cook Carlos for additional insight into the food and ingredients which added to the flavour of the evenng. Service was extremely helpful and I will be back with my Portuguese compatriots to share in the same expereince. Obrigado!!

6 of us dined early evening 5pm, ordering 18 dishes all of which bar one were outstanding. The restaurant was not too busy but pleasant and filling up with custom (and atmosphere) as we left.Will be back.
