From 7 to 17 April, at Pátio da Galé, Terreiro do PaçoThe most essential of Portuguese gastronomic events dedicated to seafood returns to Pátio da Galé – Terreiro do Paço, with top restaurants as well as Portuguese and foreign chefs de cuisine making an appearance.
An excellent opportunity to experience what the best chefs in Portugal and Europe can create from Portugal’s fantastic fish & seafood ingredients
Prices are incredibly reasonable with many places offering rock bottom meals with wine for around 7€. It reminds me of how French restaurants used to be, where mum did the cooking and dad looked after front of house. I hear that these tabernas are now under threat because taxes are sky high but the ones I sample are outstanding, and cheap as chips – and what’s more they’re made from real potatoes, not the frozen variety. Fried liver with a gravy made of white wine and scraped spleen is a particular hit.
The festival kicks off on 7th April and lasts 10 days.
