Originally from Porto, living in Lisbon since 2016.
Favorite dish will have to be a good Duck Rice (Arroz de Pato)
Although Lisbon is beautiful inside and out always look for the open doors in the buildings, you might find some of the most amazing undiscovered monuments.

Hungarian native who fell in love with Portugal in 2006 and made it her home.
My favourite Portuguese dish would have to be grilled sea bass with an ocean view and a nice green wine.
If you are a coffee drinker always order a regular “café” and not a milky version to really appreciate this underrated delicacy!
Gabriel
Gabriel
Brazilian living in Lisbon for 6 years who fell in love with the city after a trip and never left.
My favorite dish is Polvo a lagareiro!
When in Lisbon, don't miss Graça with its viewpoints and terraces and a sunset boat trip on the Tejo River
Catarina

Born in "a garden planted by the sea" also known as Portugal.
What I love about Portuguese cuisine is the freshness of the ingredients which change every season. My favorite summer food is grilled sardines with salad.
The best way to learn about a country is through its people. Go to a farmers market, talk to strangers and experience the variety of local vegetables and fruits.
Eduardo

Born and raised in Portugal. From the mountain of Sintra right to your table!
My favorite thing to eat is rotisserie chicken. Simple but hard to beat.
The best advice I've ever been given for Lisbon is "Look for handwritten menus. Even better if they're written on a disposable paper towel''!
Fred
Fred
Born and raised in Lisbon, a true "Alfacinha"
My favorite Portuguese dish is a Bitoque: steak with a fried egg served on top with a side of french fries and rice
When in Lisbon, explore Alfama, Belém and Sintra as well as indulging in our lovely food

Walk and eat as much as possible in Portugal. There's always some story behind each building and dish!

We did this tour for my friends birthday and weren’t disappointed.
Learning about the local cuisine and trying dishes we possibly wouldn’t have or were the best places to try them was great. The tour takes you off the beaten track also around some of the old town areas we might have missed.
Our guide Annette made the trip a five star experience for us. She was so passionate and knowledgeable about the history of Lisbon and its relationship with food which made this much more than a tasting trip. Thank you Annette ❤️👏

6 out of 5 stars. Catarina was amazing and showed us lovely spots and great hospitality. She was very knowledgeable and didn’t just point out landmarks she had great stories and contexts and local view point. Super friendly and accommodated and entertained my wife and I and our two teenage boys. We loved that she had clear and warm connections to the proprietors of the restaurants we visited which also helped us feel more welcome. She also gave us good tips on what to do on the rest our trip. Highly recommend.

Sarah has perfect English and lovely to spend the afternoon with and has great insight on history and life in Portugal and food and drinks are all delicious. We finished the four hour tour full, happy and excited about the city of Lisbon.
Riding on the Tuk Tuk through the narrow winding hill streets was so much fun.

Absolutely top notch tour. Kathrina was awesome, our group was fun, we learned, we ate, we drank, and we had such a lovely time as a group of strangers becoming friends. The special sardine sit-down meal was fantastic. Not only super fresh grilled sardines, but chorizo and olives and cheese and chips and pork and bread and I can’t remember what else with lots of wine. Highly recommend. Have had such good tours with Eating Europe. 😊

This tour was a combination of tuk tuk, eating, and walking (thankfully all downhill!) Our guide Camila was amazing, she provided history, geography, and society insights all while exposing us to the delicious food of Portugal. All food stops were amazing and places we wouldn’t have experienced without this tour. A definite highlight of our time in Lisbon. Thanks so much Camila for the great company and conversation!

We loved everything about the tour with Riccardo. He shared many interesting stories about the history in Lisbon and different landmarks around the city and introduced us to many delicious drinks and food dishes. He took care of our group well aged 78 years to 6 years.

Eddie our tour guide is amazing and just the right amount of funny. The walk isn’t too much and the stops are frequent. We visted many places we wouldn’t have tried alone. This tour definitely gives an alternate look at the city of Lisbon. This tour does visit the more populous areas of the city yet we never felt unsafe. When in the area please take this tour and ask for Eddie to be your guide.

Camilla was fabulous! Get ready to really taste the foods of Portugal and hear and see all about this gorgeous city! I chose this food tour because it seemed higher end than others being offered and I was correct. Wonderful experience from start to finish! It has a five star from everyone for a reason! And our Tuk Tuk driver was so pleasant and accommodating! Really a great tour!

Our group of 3 spent a lovely day with Eddy exploring the tastes, the art & the neighborhoods of Lisbon. Eddy is extremely knowledgeable of Lisbon & Portugese history. He chose small authentic restaurants for us to sample traditional Portugese food, beer & wines. Our tuk tuk driver, Miguel, was a great addition to the day. He is also very knowledgeable of the neighborhoods & their history. Eddy & Miguel are a dynamic duo & provided a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this tour as an introduction to Lisbon food & culture

Camila’s tour of Lisbon was incredible. She is so knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional and kind— and the food and views were all so amazing. I have celiac disease and (sadly!) can’t eat gluten and she made special accommodations for me at every stop. She completely made my trip to Lisbon worthwhile and I have a much deeper understanding of Portuguese culture. I would recommend this tour with Camila 10/10 times. Thank you!!!!

One word to describe our experience- "priceless"! We were on a 45th birthday trip with 32 multigenerational women from ages 19 to 83 traveling from the United States and Canada from diverse backgrounds and religious faiths. I say this because we had a mix of dietary restrictions including vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, non-vegetarian, kosher, and halal. All the dietary needs were met.
For some guests, this was their first time in Europe versus many who are seasoned travelers. This Eating Europe experience was the start of our 4-day birthday celebration and it provided the guests a glimpse of Lisbon- from the beautiful scenic views to the variety of dining options and to the hospitality. The team at Eating Europe ensured to address all the questions during the reservations process, the follow-ups, and finally delivered a wonderful memorable experience! We truly appreciated the hospitality of the guides, the staff at the various restaurants, and the taste of Lisbon. Definitely a must do in Lisboa for all groups- young to old, women's trip, couples', families, etc.

This tour was wonderful. Great chance to see different neighborhoods of the city and see restaurants not on the public squares. Eddy was amazing and gave us city background, Lisbon & Portugal history and food knowledge. Would definitely encourage you to take the time and try this one. Thanks again.

The Tastiest Food Tours in Lisbon

Apart from extravagant tiles and baroque architecture, Lisbon is known for its culinary delights.

Like many countries in Europe where food is ingrained into the culture, Portuguese cuisine and wine vary from region to region but there is one thing that never changes, the quality! It is hard to underestimate just how passionately locals in Lisbon feel about their food and wine. 

One of the best ways to taste the local food scene is to join our food tours in Lisbon. Many visitors to Portugal are not familiar with the country’s rich gastronomy or where to get the best foods to eat in Lisbon. Unfortunately, Portuguese cuisine tends to be overshadowed by its Spanish, Italian and French neighbors. 

For this reason, joining us on one of our food tours in Lisbon will introduce you to local and traditional Portuguese specialties. Whether  you choose the Best of Lisbon Tuk Tuk Food Tour or Undiscovered Lisbon Tour, you’ll explore Lisbon’s colourful neighborhoods and enjoy the local Portuguese flavors. 

Portugal’s fortunate geographic location allows the country to excel in different specialties from the amazingly fresh seafood caught just off the coast to the porco preto (Black Iberian pig), who roam freely in the oak forest feeding on acorns that give them their mouth-watering nutty flavour. And of course, no visit to Lisbon is complete with tasting dishes with one of the most iconic ingredients of Portuguese cuisine – the dried and salted cod, bacalhau.

Joining our Lisbon food tours will take you up and down the hilly back-streets, to praças (plazas), local eateries and neighborhood pastelarias that serve classic sweets (oh, those pastel de natas!) meticulously handmade  following the original recipes handed down throughout generations.

Lisbon does not disappoint when it comes to its local wines either. Because Portugal’s wine culture developed in relative isolation, there are many grape varieties that do not grow anywhere else in the world. As always, our local Lisbon food tour guides will share their favorite spots with stories that bring the history and culture of Lisbon passionately to life. 

We are confident that by joining a food tour in Lisbon, you will explore innovative trends of cuisine and will make you feel immersed into the food culture of Portuguese. You will leave our food tours ready to explore Lisbon’s culinary delights as a local!
