Why isn't 'restaurant' accepted? Isn't it interchangeable with 'resto'? I hope some one can explain to me why they are different.

Restaurant is also correct, "resto" is just shorter (but we only say it while speaking, it is not an official word)

Thank you - when I wrote restaurant it was marked wrong. Hopefully some one from Duolingo monitoring the exercises will state it is acceptable in the future.

... If you clicked on My answer should be accepted. Did you ?

Yes I did so hopefully it will be reviewed.

I reviewed it and as expected, there was another mistake in your sentence. This is what you reported: "tu connais une bon restaurant portugais"

to Sitesurf- Thanks! I wasn't aware of that - sloppy!

It should be restaurant, we have not been usinh the word resto, but once or twice before. This frusted people.
