Family run restaurants in Lisbon

marcp | Aug 23, 201105:04 AM     2

My wife and I will be visiting Lisbon for 5 days in November, and are most interested in finding authentic and excellent family run restaurants, where a family member is the chef, and who cares deeply about the quality of each dish coming out of the kitchen.

The restaurant can have a touch of creativity, but I am primarily interested in traditional Portuguese places; large portions, heavy and oily are OK, although I do draw the line at overcooked fish.

Do such restaurants exist in Lisbon?

I have done some research to identify possibilities, but would very much appreciate more knowledgeable opinions. None of the restaurants mentioned below yielded any results from a Chowhound search.

O Galito and D'Avis, which are Alentejo style restaurants, appear to come closest to the ideal, at least on paper.

Other possibilities are O Coreto de Carnide, O Poleiro, and Farta Brutos.

What do our Lisbon experts think about these restaurants? Are there others, possibly even better?

Thanks

Marc
