Michelin star restaurants from Porto to the Algarve open their doors for themed two-day festivals where culinary technique is celebrated. This is the Rota das Estrelas (Star Route).

One of the hottest new restaurants in Portugal is a small little neighborhood spot in Aveiro. It’s called O Bairro. Sitting on a street corner, across the walk from the city fish market, this quaint little eatery is full most nights. Word is quickly spreading about its creative gourmet cuisine at crisis-friendly prices.
