Eating at- and from the sea

It will be no surprise that in the coastal areas, so also at the Costa de Prata, fish and shellfish dominate the menu. Don't forget to try some of the many different dishes with fresh grilled fish or seafood.

Ricedishes with seafood or fish are also an excellent choice. Bacalhau, which is salted and dried cod, is eaten in enormous amounts in Portugal. It is said that there are at least 365 different recipes for bacalhau, one for every day of the year.

Portuguese people really have a sweet tooth. So there's always room for a lovely sweet dessert, very often with ingredients like almonds, honey and egg yolks. Why not wash that down with a nice glass of Port or Madeira, a great combination.

For every dish there is a matching wine; wine is produced throughout the country. Port wine is certainly the most famous, but the wines from other Portuguese regions, such as Extremadura, Alentejo, and Dão, are highly commendable. And of course the locally produced olives, sausage and cheese taste are excellent companions.

The pasteis de nata, typical Portuguese pastries, are famous all over the world. The most famous are made in Belém in Lisbon. A stay in Portugal without at least once having coffee with a pastel de nata is actually not possible.

Some nice and very good restaurants: from pizza to a culinary night out

Close to the monastry of Batlha you find several Pastelarias where you can have a coffee and enjoy the Portuguese 'doces', but they are also a good place for soup, a hamburger or a sandwich.

In the restaurants you order the Prato do Dia. Usually this comes with a drink, all for a very reasonable price.

Batalha has many restaurants where you can enjoy a good meal. There are typical Portuguese 'tavernas', like A Cave and Dom Duarte, and traditional restaurants like Perola do Fetal and O Burro Velho. For a pizza you go to Pap 'Oliva.

But for those who really would like a night out, restaurant Vintage is highly recommended. Very good food and presentation, and they can recommend the appropriate wine to accompany your dish. And do not worry .......... also in this restaurant a bottle of excellent wine comes at a very reasonable price.
