Most travelers find the Portuguise cuisine very good value. Maybe a little traditional compared to other Sout European countries like Spain, France and Italy.
The Portuguese cuisine is changing fast – and we love it.
Foodies are a little more ‘sceptical’. But the cuisine is far from as bad as The Times Magazine wrote earlier this year when Terbano do Mercado in London was awarded a ‘Bib’ by Michelin.

The last couple of years a lot of very talented and creative young chefs have developed the Portuguese cuisine and introduced new ways of creating the most delicious menus based on the fantastic local ingredients mixed whith inspiration from all over the world.
In our opinion the timing is perfect for food travelers.
Finding your own gastronomic gems is a fantastic way to discover a country. Thats one of pur favorite ways of discovering a city – searching for good restaurants and cafes is one of the ways we used to discovered Lison. And how we found Graca.
