Deep inside, is the sea that gives the most striking feature of Portuguese cuisine, where we have a wonderful opportunity to taste the freshest grilled fish, or the finest seafood that abounds all along the coast.

Regarding to meat dishes, surely we advise the Portuguese stew that reflects the ecstasy of flavors resulting in a perfect combination of meats, vegetables and assorted sausages, cooked succulently. Portugal has indeed superb DOP meats from north to south, either veal, pork or lamb.
