Culinary Lunchtime WalkMost Popular
A leisurely lunch tour in a special neighbourhood away from Lisbon’s tourist’s hotspots.
Evening Tour
A 4 hour culinary walk during one of the most beautiful times of the day, exploring fish, meat, wine and cheese amongst other delicacies.
Join us in exploring the tastes and histories of Portuguese cuisine.
Our culinary walks are unique in that close relationships with local restaurants and cafés bring you insights into authentic Portuguese culture.
The walks will introduce you to some of the exquisite delicacies that Portuguese cuisine can offer, while also showing you the vast influences that Portuguese food and ingredients have had around the world, including in places such as India, Brazil and Africa.
We welcome you to savour "Portugal on a Plate".
What to Expect
Our walks take you beyond the usual tourist neighbourhoods of Chiado, Baixa and Bairro Alto to experience the stories of genuine Portuguese food through meeting local people, tasting delicacies in small neighbourhood restaurants, shops, cafés and bars.
The walks are designed to introduce you to traditional savoury fish, meat dishes and snacks, pastries and sweets, cheeses, charcuterie and the wonderful world of Portuguese wines.
Find out about how the Jews developed their own pork free version of a Portuguese sausage, how the sweet making traditions developed in convents across the country, or how Port wine began as a way of preserving wine in the 17th century on long transports to Britain.
Come and discover hidden gems in Lisbon's traditional neighbourhoods and taste Portugal on a Plate!
