Full description
Experience Lisbon through the story of its food on a 3-hour walking tour to up to 5 different venues, including an old brewery and a famous café.

Feel like you’ve traveled back in time at Rua das Flores Tavern, where a short, seasonal menu of traditional food includes cod, tuna and Iscas, a well know dish made from pork liver. Taste what´s on the menu of the day, before going to a beerhouse in a former monastery.

Learn about the Trindade beerhouse, the 1st Portuguese brewery, later converted into a restaurant. Sample one of Lisbon’s most famous snacks: spat, octopus and cod mixed with chickpeas and served with a beer.

Next, try an irresistibly crumbly pastéis Lisboa at Café Lisboa. Then, admire the extravagant décor of the 17th-century Moorish palace of Casa do Alentejo, now one of Lisbon’s most exquisite restaurants. Here, you will taste the traditional food of south Portugal, where the main elements are bread and aromatic herbs.

Visit Confeitaria Nacional, the oldest establishment of its kind in Lisbon. Famous for its traditional cakes and pastries, sample one of their legendary custard tartlets with a coffee. Alternatively, go to the old tavern of Amigos da Severa to hear some live fado music, and drink Lisbon´s best ginjinha (cherry liquor).

Nice start on the first evening in Lisbon

An interesting and informative tour of Bairro Alto and Baixa, with a lot of information about Lisbon, its history, its (food) culture and the peculiarities of its people. Also a lot of information about current developments in the old town and the local political environment. Spiced up by some "tastings" of the culinary diversity of Portugal and of course some drinks. The funniest probably worried the tasting of Ginjinha directly from the store. A good introduction to get acquainted with the city and customs by a well-groomed female insider (is that the insider's name or that's the name of the insider?) With lots of charm and a reasonable dose of wit. Thank you for a few cozy, informative and enjoyable hours.

Enriching ballad, we discover the local culinary habits.

Great concept: pedestrian walk punctuated by 5/6 stops while you taste the culinary specialties while listening to the explanations of the guide on the history of the dish and the habits and customs of the Portuguese. The big and the little story are waiting for you !! Thank you to our French-Portuguese accompanist (and Breton) very competent! ... who also knows Asterix!

That was not worth the money ...

We started with a mini terrine incl. A glass of water. Next we went with three mini-bowl fish salad, of course, only half. In addition there was beer, which did not like my company and asked politely for a wine that she did not get ... Is not in the budget. After that, there was a minuteness divided by two. And then a little liqueur. For 150 euros. I can fool myself!
