Local gastronomic adventure at Varanda Restaurant

One of the great pleasures in traveling is getting to know local gastronomy, and with that in mind, Sous-Chef Carlos Gonçalves, profound connoisseur of the secrets and flavours of our country, has created a unique Portuguese menu.
From the Roasted “Bairrada” Suckling Pig to the inevitable Codfish – presented in a trilogy of its many forms, we want to take you on an unforgettable gastronomic adventure.

To close, Pastry Chef Fabian Nguyen has selected the best products and local traditions to bring you truly memorable traditional Portuguese desserts in a surprisingly modern way.

Our new Portuguese Menu will take you from north to south of Portugal without having to travel through the hills and valleys of Portugal. To embark on this journey all you need to do is join us at Varanda Restaurant.
