The first Portuguese restaurant in Taipa
Cozinha Pinocchio was the first Portuguese restaurant in Taipa with a history of 30 years. The exterior is typical of Portuguese architecture, with yellow and white facades with wooden window frames. The interior of the restaurant is also full of Portuguese atmosphere, complete with decorative tiles.
At Cozinha Pinocchio you can choose from a range of curries, hot stir-fries, but most people come here for the charcoal grilled dishes. The fish are usually pickled which makes the flavors more intense; their signature grilling technique leaves the outer layer slightly charred, but the inside is unexpectedly smooth.
