Restaurants Tips, where to eat (& drink well) in Douro / Porto wine region Where to eat in the different wine regions?

Below fine all restaurants we recommend for the quality of their wines list

Porto is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, charming and picturesque. Located at the gates of the Atlantic ocean and crossed by the famous Douro river, the city of Porto offers a rich and tasty cuisine. It is famous for its seafood dishes. Don’t forget to stop by the famous Porto market to taste “tripe”, a great local specialty, or to eat “cabri” when you are in the heart of the Douro.

Leaving the city of Porto to follow the Douro River inland, you will discover the beautiful and large eponymous region (editor’s note: Douro). The latter is famous for its famous terraced vineyards, breath-taking views and for being the birthplace of its great fortified wine, the Port. Don’t be mistaken, you will also find great “still” wines in the Douro appellation (white and red).
