Welcoming, relaxing and with a magnificent view over a fishing village and the Douro River, the Casa de Pasto da Palmeira is a renowned restaurant in the city. It is here that we find those who enjoy an evening accompanied by a good glass of wine. But it is the “pratinhos”, as its chef and owner, João Pupo Lameiras, calls them that distinguish this charismatic restaurant. Generally of Portuguese inspiration, his delicacies surprise customers by their re-creation with other worldly flavors and trendy tastes.

Every month, the chef changes the menu, testing new ingredients and favoring seasonal produce. Combinations such as sausage cupcakes with turnip greens and sweet and sour sauce, chicken rolls with mango sauce and foie gras terrine with onion compote are just a few of the more famous ones. The dishes are comprised of several smaller servings so that they can be sampled by everyone at the table. Inside the restaurant and on the terrace, be it winter or summer, the Casa de Pasto da Palmeira maintains the highest level of standards to surprise and delight its patrons and offers a good dose of relaxation and familiarity. A perfect combination for an evening of culinary adventure by the River Douro.
