Taste authentic Portuguese food on a Lisbon tour!

Discover traditional Portuguese dishes on this fascinating Lisbon food tour. Delicious typical Portuguese meals, all sustainability produced and passed down from generation to generation, are the core philosophies of this tour.

Our chefs bring you the unknown food and wine heritage from Portugal’s countryside using their roots in a contemporary yet genuine way. Immerse yourself in history and culture with the opportunity to taste the rare ‘talha’ Portuguese wine, a winemaking technique made famous by the Romans.

You explore not one, but three of the oldest districts — Graca, Mouraria and Alfama — on this unique food tour of Lisbon.

Lisbon is a mosaic of flavors, subversive projects, self-organized initiatives, and architecture, all connected in creative ways, and diversity is the keyword.

Our goal is to guide you through these hallways – symbolic and real ones – on a unique Lisbon small group food and wine tour that creatively retraces Portuguese gastronomic roots one plate at a time –  odd recipes included!

At our first stop, we discover and support an important non-profit social association that combines and offers transcultural cuisine, an urban garden, and a communal kitchen.

The other two stops are in small restaurants (tabernas) run by Chefs who bring Portugal’s unknown countryside to the city in original, contemporary and authentique ways. 

Discover secret Portuguese cuisine beyond the traditional dishes of grilled fish, Portuguese chorizo and the national dish, bacalhau or salted cod fish (but if you are still missing these ones, nothing wrong: meet us also on our 17 Tastings Lisbon Tour!). 

Taste the rare ‘talha’ Portuguese wine and get familiar with portuguese natural and organic wines and production.

Besides the good food we will eat, these areas of Lisbon that we visit also offer a unique history that has created an urban mix, as well as green oases, and alternative culture, with lots of street art for us to enjoy along the way. We cross paths with some independent artists’ shops (jewelry, ceramic, design, etc). Shopping is welcome but optional!

Discover a fascinating gastronomic, human & urban landscape on a Lisbon tour.

MEETING POINT

We will be meeting in front of Café Calçada Bistro in the Graça district. Arrive early to enjoy the amazing view of this small cafe.

To reach this address you can take the 28 Tramway, step out at Graça stop and walk 3-4 minutes to the meeting point.

Since this is one of the 7 hills of Lisbon, some guests love to take the famous tuk tuks (small electric cars, with one driver, open air) to the top. 

If you wish to explore the area before our tour, breath deep and go up the highest point in the old city, named Miradouro Senhora do Monte (uphill, just 5 minutes walking from the meeting point).

REVIEWS

“My wife and I took this tour together looking to get a better understanding of the history and the coty. When we travel we tend do research a good amount so we can try to find fun little places. Silvia filled all of the gaps that we wanted, we didn’t go and do the touristy things that we could have figured out ourselves. We were taken through neighborhoods and down the paths that led us into a Lisbon that we would never have even thought of. It was really fantastic to experience a city like this. At one point Silvia said: “I’m not going to show you pasteis de nata because you already know that and all the good addresses are easy to find” and it really makes us feel like she wasn’t treating us like generic tourists. The sweet alternative was delicious and learn us so much about portuguese traditional sweets. We threw some interesting questions regarding the architecture and history and she know the answers like the back of her hand and when she didn’t she was intrigued and wanted to find the answer. It was a really great experience that we had the chance to share with a group of great people from around the world”.

“A great experience which I 'd definitely recommend. Sam was an absolutely brilliant host, super personable and really went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. We had truly atrocious weather (obviously not the norm at all in Lisboa!), but despite the rain we really enjoyed the tour - a testament both to Sam’s personality and the inventiveness of the tour itself (and the excellent tastings). ”

“We went on this tour with Dárida and got far more than expected! Knowledge from someone passionate about the food and its relation to the culture of the city, a friendly guide that really helped the group share a fun time, and lots of other details about cool Portuguese/Lisbonese details that popped up along the way. It was much more than a food tour really, but as a framework for a walking tour of Lisbon this was as good as it gets”.
