Cafe Nicola, one of Lisbon’s greatest cafes, is your first stop. An 18th-century building, it has been the place for literary gathering since it opened. Next, discover why Pastelaria Suiça in Rossio is such a popular place for pastries, and learn the secrets of success at Manteigaria Silva, open since 1908. Ogle the delicious products on display, such as sausages, hams and cheeses. Here, learn the history of Port, Portugal’s famous fortified wine, as you try it with a piece of delicious São Jorge cheese. Later, compare your Port with a typical Portuguese cherry brandy at A Ginjinha, and try a bacahlau cake at Cafe Beira Gare.
If you have a sweet tooth, you will enjoy the walk by Confeitaria Nacional, the oldest confectionery shop in the Baixa district, as your guide leads you to Casa Brasileira. Try the famous pastel de nata (custard tart), one of Portugal's most famous pastries, and learn why many Portuguese sweets have Catholic names.
Then it’s on to Cervejaria da Trindade, once one of the most important convents in Lisbon and now a restaurant famous for its seafood and steaks. Sample a local beer and tremoucos and then head to the garden of São Pedro de Alcantara and the steps of Calçada do Duque, two areas with a great variety of restaurants and nice views of the city. Finish your gourmet tour with a light meal (local bread, cheese, sausage and other local products) and a glass of Alentejo wine at the Neo-Moorish Casa do Alentejo, a 17th-century palace with one of the most intriguing interiors of the city.

We had a fantastic tour on the 3rd February with Rebecca. The group consisted of like minded foodies from around the world and we were so lucky to spend the evening with a great group of people. The tour lasted around 3 1/2 hours and we explored the neighbourhoods of lisbon while stopping regularly for tastings of cheeses, wines, liquers and fish. Rebecca was an excellent guide who answered all of our questions, and explained the backgrounds behind the various dishes. We did the tour on our first day in Lisbon which worked well to familiarise us with the dishes available to us for the rest of our trip. We had such a good time with excellent food, and lovely company. Completely recommended

Such a fun tour! The stops and food were great and well organized! Most of the group (and the guide) continued the evening with more drinks after the tour was over! Thank you for a splendid time in Lisbon!
