Hidden food spots and untold history in Baixa and Mouraria…

With its Neoclassical architecture, designer boutiques and cobbled streets lined with bars and restaurants – Baixa is the historical centre and commercial heart of Lisbon. Just a short walk away, Mouraria is Lisbon’s most multicultural neighbourhood and the birthplace of fado music. As one of only two districts to survive the great earthquake, Mouraria offers layers of history and a rare snapshot of local life.

One thing both neighbourhoods have in common today, is that they’re home to some of the city’s tastiest food!

On this 3.5 hour culinary tour, we take you away from the crowds to the traditional restaurants that are loved and frequented by the locals themselves. As you walk the backstreets of Baixa and Mouraria, your local guide will regale you with fascinating facts and stories about the sights you pass – giving you a much more meaningful understanding of the city than you’ll get from the guidebooks.

Discover the local’s favourite hangover food. Sit down for pesticos at a cozy tasca (traditional tavern). And enjoy authentic food and culture at our favourite fado house. Not only will you try typical Portuguese dishes, you’ll also discover some surprising international influences on the country’s cuisine

Join us as we dive beneath the surface of Portuguese culture. You’ll arrive as a curious traveller and leave feeling like a well-fed local.

Tour Highlights Include

Discover Lisbon's rich history as you wander the backstreets of two of its most fascinating neighbourhoods.

Bacalhau, or codfish, is probably the best-known dish in Portugal. A visit to Lisbon wouldn't be complete without a fresh codfish salad!

Portuguese cuisine is influenced by many different cultures. Visit a top-rated Mozambican restaurant and try a 'chamuça' - the delicious Portuguese version of a samosa.

Experience authentic fado music in this traditional restaurant that serves up the tastiest slow-cooked meat in Portuguese tomato sauce.

Discover the meaning of 'peixinhos da horta' and try this traditional dish with a glass of sparkling wine.

Indulge in a traditional 'pastel de nata' - a Portuguese custard tart that's to die for!

You haven’t eaten like a true local until you’ve had a traditional Alentejan food tasting!

Visit Camilla Watson’s famous portraits and tick it off your to-see list.

Lovely walk with Ricardo. Good food, good wine and beer and good conversation. Great way to get a foot in to the complex world of Portuguese food culture and history .

- Silke (TripAdvisor Review)

We had an amazing tour with Leonardo. He was so excited to be able to show us the history which we would not have discovered on our own and all the food was delicious.

- Rebecca H (TripAdvisor Review)

Our afternoon food tour with Camilla was far more than just about food!!! We learned about the history of the Baixa and the Mouraria neighborhoods which sheds an informative light on the foods, wines & the customs of old Lisbon.
