Held in the breathtaking terrace of Lisbon’s former Royal Palace, the annual Fish & Flavours event is a seafood-lover’s paradise. Now in its 11th year, there are bound to be some extra-special activities taking place to celebrate this gastronomic institution’s big birthday. The festival is the perfect opportunity to try out some innovative seafood dishes which are a little different from the norm, with the best chefs from around Portugal descending upon the Praça do Comércio to cook up a seafood storm. If you’re not content to simply taste the food, then why not take part in one of the many cooking demonstrations and classes on offer!
Fish & Flavours, known in Portuguese as Peixe em Lisboa, takes place for 11 days in the grand surroundings of Páteo da Galé in the Praça do Comércio. You can buy tickets online from the official website with several packages available. If you’d like to attend the event, your nearest airport is Lisbon International Airport. From there, take the metro to Terreiro do Paço, Cais do Sodre, Rossio or Baixa-Chiado. As the huge square is one of the city’s main transport hubs, you can also take tram number 28 or buses 728, 737 and 735 amongst others.
Fish & Flavours is a very well-attended event with consistently impressive exhibitors and activities. National and international chefs whip up a storm and let you into some of their gastronomic secrets during the cooking demonstrations in the auditorium.
