      The best private food tours & experiences in Lisbon

      With cuisine as colorful as its perfectly placed Azulejo tiles, a Lisbon food tour is an experience of gastronomic greatness. Portugal’s capital has been carefully crafted over the centuries, and its diverse mix of cultural influences – Roman, Asian, African, and South American – has created a cuisine that’s built around local ingredients and bolstered by international flavors and cooking techniques. A food tour of Lisbon’s best restaurants moves lazily over the undulating hills, between romantic bistros in lantern-lit lanes, elegant cafés in tree-fringed plazas, and local hangouts filled with friends sharing small savory plates and pitchers of fruity sangria.

      Food with a foot in the past

      A city of stubborn culinary tradition, Lisbon hasn’t been too bothered about keeping up with global food trends. The city doesn’t have any shortage of incredible food, but the best restaurants in Lisbon are decidedly driven by Portuguese proclivities and local Lisbon flavor. Food in Lisbon reflects the city’s storied past through its use of ingredients obtained via trade routes several centuries ago. As you’ll find on your food tour, the best food in Lisbon is a celebration of deceptively simple flavors, local produce, and freshly grilled seafood courtesy of the Atlantic Ocean.

      Lisbon is overflowing with atmospheric dining spots – some along the water, some in cobbled terraces, some overlooking the city’s iconic, sun-dappled terracotta rooftops – and the best restaurants in Lisbon are a diverse range of spaces. The one guarantee on a Lisbon food tour is delicious cuisine that satisfies the stomach as well as the soul. Whether you’re looking for a hearty meal in a dimly lit bistro, a quick pastry at a trendy waterfront café, or an authentic pastel de nata (or several) at a bustling local market, there are incredible places to eat for every type of foodie.

      You don’t need to plan a day trip to the wine regions, because there’s no better place to discover Portugal’s wine than here in its capital city. Lisbon is brimming with boutique wine shops, cozy cellars, corkage-friendly restaurants, and see-and-be-seen bars – so why not boost your food tour with some world-class wine? Take your palate on a journey, from crisp and aromatic Arinto whites to the full-bodied reds of Alentejo, and bring the whole experience together with Lisbon’s lesser-known version of tapas – small plates called petiscos. Your food tour just got even better!

        Ricardo was an excellent host. He took us to some amazing local restaurants, and we loved all of the food. He also slipped on some historic aspects to the tour and knew everything about Lisbon. If we go again, we shall definitely book again, many thanks, Austin

        The people who gave us the tour were very nice and engaging and if you were looking for a companion to hang out with during an afternoon this would be a great event. However, the activities listed in the description of the tour bore little resemblance to what was actually provided in terms of local food and wine introduction. The guide was not fluent in Portuguese, not a local, and was very disorganized. Her friend/companion was a vegetarian and didn’t drink so could provide little in the way of insight into a good portion of the local cuisine. I would have expected a semi-planned itinerary but when we met up with the guide (and her friend) they basically left it to us to provide ideas which we did. Based upon the type of experience we described we walked to our first stop which turned out not to be open. OK this happens so we needed to fall back to plan B but there wasn’t any plan B so we ended up walking around and stopping for a cocktail at a random bar (which we paid for). After more walking around with no definite plan we ended up breaking off the tour after 2 hours with no food or drinks enjoyed. Basically, I could have got this much insight into Portuguese cuisine and culture from our hotel. In contrast to another Portuguese guided culinary tour we took here in Lisbon this doesn’t even begin to compare. A definite disappointment and not worth the time even if it was free.

        We had a fantastic guide with Pedro. Took us to great places to eat some authentic Portuguese dishes. Visited some beautiful vistas and learned a great deal about Portugal’s history.
