Porto is Portugal’s second biggest city, located in the north. It is a beautiful city on the Douro River, famous for its Port wines. But- besides wine, Porto also has amazing restaurants and here are my favorites.
Digby Restaurante Bar – For Luxury with a View
Digby restaurant is located in the Torel Avantgarde hotel. It is a beautiful hotel and before you get to the restaurant, you need to walk through the main lobby and bar, which is a stunning flower room. The restaurant has outside as well as inside seating, and outside you can enjoy amazing views over the Douro river and the city of Porto. Food and service was exceptional: the chef made special vegetarian dishes for us outside the menu.
Nola Kitchen – Vegan Options and Superfood dishes
Nola Kitchen is a super cute restaurant focusing on mainly healthy dishes. They have plenty of vegan options available as well, and is located right in the city centre, so a convenient food stop while exploring. Besides the food menu, they also offer takeaway coffees and bites, as well as a mini market place where they sell healthy ingredients, plastic alternatives and reusable cups.
FixeBowl – Pick and Choose your favorites
At FixeBowl you can customize your Pokébowl completely as to your own preference. You can choose from their menu or create your own- so it’s perfect if you are with a group of fussy eaters.
Vogue Cafe – Food in Style
In Vogue Cafe Porto you can enjoy all day dining in style. It is as expected a fashionable place, with food and coffees served in style.
Boutique do Gelado – Ice cream
For amazing ice cream head over to Boutique do Gelado, also located in the city centre. Besides ice cream they also have amazing desserts on the menu as well as good coffees. The perfect place for when you need a sugar rush.
Da Terra – Vegetarian food (on the go)
Da Terra is a very popular and busy vegetarian buffet restaurant. They have multiple locations and you can enjoy the all you can eat buffet but also make a plate and get it to take away. They’re open all day and food on offer is different for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks so it is never same!
Hungry Biker – Sunday morning brunch
It does not matter when you walk past Hungry Biker- there is always people queueing outside for a place to get in! They have plenty of choices on the menu, from healthy vegan options to marshmallow and ice cream waffles.
Any Portugese Bakery – For Pastel de Nata
You cannot leave Portugal without trying Pastel de Nata- their world famous pastry. In Porto there is plenty of bakeries everywhere throughout the city. Make sure to stop at one of them to try traditional Portuguese pastries with a nice cup of coffee.
