5 Michelin-starred restaurants in Porto
Porto is home to world-class chefs and Michelin-star restaurants. It is often regarded as Portugal’s food capital, so there are plenty of mouth-watering options to choose from.
1. CASA DE CHÁ DA BOA NOVA (MICHELIN 2-STARS RESTAURANT)
Two Michelin Stars. Built on the rocks, hand in hand with the sea, there is Casa de Chá da Boa Nova, a tea house designed by Pritzer-award winner Siza Vieira. Haute de cuisine, focusing on seafood and vegetarian dishes. It is one of our favorite places to eat – not only because of the wonderful food but also the spectacular views over the Atlantic Ocean. If available, do not miss the opportunity to try “The Channel Squid” – extraordinary.
We’ve talked with the Chef who leads the kitchen, Chef Rui Paula. In this interview, he revealed some of his thoughts and feelings about food. We have a feeling that foodies will love this interview with Chef Rui Paula.

One Michelin Star. Right at the heart of the city, Antiqvvm is an icon of fine dining with a breathtaking view – particularly beautiful when sunny. Chef Vítor Matos delivers a bold reinterpretation of traditional Portuguese flavors, featuring dishes like coral with red mullet and sea urchin. He knows what he is doing!

Besides food and wine, The Yeatman is a luxury wine hotel and spa with magnificent views over the Douro river, overlooking the UNESCO part of Porto. Just for the view alone, it’s worth it! Yeatman is one of those “one in a lifetime” places, so go big and choose the “Gastronomic Experience Menu” – you will never forget it! At “The Orangerie”, the hotel’s second restaurant, you can order à la carte.

4. PEDRO LEMOS (MICHELIN 1-STAR RESTAURANT)
Pedro Lemos is the first restaurant in Porto to get a Michelin star. The room itself is very cozy, romantic and British, in a sense, with wallpaper and big chairs. The chef’s philosophy (who was previously a civil engineer) is very clean-cut, with no big fuss, no overly complicated elements, and very straightforward. This Michelin-star restaurant is located in the Foz region, right at the mouth of the Douro river. In addition to the dining room, the restaurant has a wine cellar where group dinners can be held and a terrace for warmer days. Don’t leave without sampling the duck foie gras!

Chef Tiago Bonito leads the kitchen and creates a gastronomic experience that mixes tradition and indulgence in equal doses. The service is cozy, informal, and sophisticated.
