Portuguese Food Cuture and Restaurants

Portugal’s cuisine is as rich and varied as its landscape. The most distinctive feature of Portuguese cuisine comes from the sea. As you enjoy a simple grilled fish, always fresh like the seafood that abounds from end to end along the coast, you can be sure that you are in Portugal! Cataplanas, bouillabaisses and any other fish or seafood dish are also excellent choices. For meat dishes, the traditional ‘Cozido à Portuguesa’ is a mix of meats, vegetables and various sausages, cooked in a dellicious way. Portugal has excellent DOP (protected denomination of origin) meats, from north to south, whether it’s beef, pork or kid.

Many vegetables and fruit also preserve the taste of the old times, and some also have the DOP label, especially as many are produced organically. Portuguese olive oil is of prime quality and is part of every dish, including cod (for which it is said that there are 1001 recipes!), which Portugal excels at preparing and enjoying. Oh! And the cheeses! While queijo da serra (mountain cheese from Serra da Estrela) tops the bill, all the cheeses from centro de Portugal, Alentejo and the Azores are delicious. Each dish is matched to the right wine. The whole country produces wine and, while port wine is famous, the Douro, Alentejo and many other table wines are no less superior. The sweets, whose roots go back to the many convents where they were originally prepared, even today make us “thank heavens”. And a Pastel De Nata (custard tart) is a must.

At the end of a meal, the Portuguese might make a toast with some Port or Madeira, fortified wines that have been spreading the Portuguese name to faraway lands for centuries; or with an excellent sparkling wine produced in Portugal, to celebrate a memorable meal provided by the country’s talented chefs.

A large part of the fun of being on holiday is trying the different restaurants and there are a number of them here for you to try. All restaurants levy a small cover charge for which you get bread, olives, cheese, paté etc. Tips are normally circa 5-10%

Here are some of our suggestion.  There are too many to list all.
