Pinóquito Restaurant, Lisbon, Portugal

On my recent visit to Lisbon, my son Bryan wanted me to try the beef “picapau” at Pinóquito in the heart of Praça dos Restauradores. We stopped in one night at this bustling restaurant where seafood is purportedly king. The beef is better!

We were able to get our drinks, some olives and bread service fairly quickly. But other than that be prepared to wait as service is quite slow.

The bife de lombo “picapau” ($24.60) was amazing — so flavorful and tender I could almost cut it with a fork. The garlic shrimp (~$17) was fine,  but couldn’t rival the garlicky prawns I served atop homemade risotto the night before. With those dishes, we also shared housemade warm potato chips and creamed spinach (~$5).

I would recommend going to Pinóquito for the picapau, also known as woodpecker beef and a fun lively time.
