Where can I eat in Portugal?

Now, for the yummy part...

Vegetarianism and veganism is universally growing, probably due to a higher food and environmental awareness.

With this, the industry and commerce began to be more aware and thoughtful and you can find several options for eating of shopping worldwide.

However, sometimes, these options are not properly advertised and you end up ruining what could have been the perfect vacations because you couldn’t find a good place to eat.

We have compiled an extensive list of restaurants that are Vegan, Vegetarian or Veg. Friendly and you can find them in each region specific post . We truly believe you will have good eating experiences while in Portugal, however, if you need, the Restaurante Terra has made a small dictionary for Vegans and Vegetarians. Also, most of the Portuguese traditional food has meat or fish, but among the side dishes you might find some delicious surprises.

Some franchisings will supply you with good veggie and vegan food and they have several stores spread through Portugal.
