Compared to neighboring Spain, Portugal’s bars and restaurants typically draw lighter crowds, and diners like to linger and enjoy their food at a relaxed pace. At some of the restaurants, you will share finger-food with your tour group. Although dishes vary by day, you can expect a selection of food ranging from niche regional specialties to longtime Portuguese classics.
