Wonderful, loved it. The off the bone chicken wings had a real kick to them & I didn't think I'd enjoy a carrot so much! Thank you. Class place

I met my boss and a new client at Canto and it was absolutely perfect. Really relaxed, gorgeous menu and great wine! Not too complicated and a good reflection of Portuguese cuisine and culture. Keep it up!

I noticed after I had paid that there was pink lipstick on the glasses so they had not been cleaned properly. We were then offered another glass of wine as a way of apology which I declined. The food was average so we would not recommend or eat here again.

Great Food and Atmosphere. Really attentive service. Nice that the dishes arrive at well spaced intervals. Gin nicely presented - a little steeply priced perhaps - food worth every penny.

Been to El Gato Negro numerous times but this was the first visit to Canto. Food and service were excellent but the atmosphere of the restaurant was not quite as good as El Gato Negro.

Real shame we were made to have the set menu due to the fact there were eight of us - not the best selection of the food I’ve had here previously and we’d definitely have spent more money had we been able to choose freely. We’d ordered one veggie set menu and my friend waited over an hour to get anything she could eat (and we had to kick up a fuss to get that brought), which was disappointing. Staff were lovely and we’ve had much better service in the past so maybe a big group on Saturday night isn’t the best idea.

Food was really good, although a handful of dishes were very pricey for what you got - for example the lamb skewers at £13.50 aren’t that substantial. Good selection of wine and cocktails. Staff very friendly.

All the food served was very tasty, just like it’s sister restaurant El Gato Negro it’s consistently good. Great Service. The Mushroom Croquettes are surprisingly very tasty The desserts in my opinion at least could be better. Would definitely go again.

Waiting staff were very friendly, but not the most competent. Something that could be solved with a little training and better organisation.

Visited Canto before but was nice to see new choices on the menu and the restaurant itself had been changed too which was really nice
