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.
Enjoy more than 15 tastings, three stops in local food associations and taverns, urban gardens, a tasting of ‘talha’ wine, and meet with two chefs. 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.

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).
One difference between the two tours is that the Traditional Portuguese Food Tour is not suitable for vegetarians or pescatarians, and our Lisbon Food & Wine Walking Tour is.
The second unique factor is that on the Lisbon Food & Wine Walking Tour you can expect to be surprised and to taste things you were not expecting, but in this food tour, we go further and share with you some odd traditional Portuguese recipes that you’ve never even heard about.
The Traditional Portuguese Food Tour is based on our grandparents’ philosophy that when you kill an animal you need to honor them by eating all the parts! Odd, but delicious and scrumptious! Plus you will also learn about and taste the rare and unique ‘talha’ Portuguese wine that dates back to Roman times.
