From the most traditional tavern to the most gourmet restaurant, there are countless places where you can taste the gastronomic delicacies of the region, however there are areas where there is a greater concentration of dining spaces, such as Avenida Luísa Todi. On the back of this avenue, near Fisherman’s Dock, meals are shared with a beautiful view of the Sado river. The traditional fishing district of Tróino and Largo da Fonte Nova are other places very popular with diners. In the middle of a good fish paradise, fried cuttlefish is the delicacy that stands out from all the dishes in the region. The fame of this dish motivates pilgrimages to the city throughout the year. Whoever tastes it is not indifferent. The color, which stands out on the platter, the texture and the taste awaken the senses. The fish, always fresh, makes the gastronomic offer of the Setúbal region a national and international reference, whose quality label has been gaining dimension over time.
When it comes to sweets, Setúbal is one of the most famous regions in the country. The tradition goes back to the confection of sweets made from oranges from the orange groves that used to dress the city of yore, as well as honey from the bees of Serra da Arrábida. And not only. From Setúbal, delicacies based on oranges and the historic Bolacha Piedade come out.
From Azeitão, a land rich in sweets, the famous Tortas, the Amores and the Os, not to mention the Egg and Almond Cheeses and the Sheep Milk Cheesecakes. Azeitão was once an important source of sheep production in the country. And where there are sheep there is cheese. Queijo de Azeitão, one of the best soft Portuguese sheep’s cheeses, has unique characteristics, achieved by the conditions and specific characteristics of Arrábida.
To accompany all these delicacies ask for a good wine. With the microclimate favoring the cultivation of vines, the region offers award-winning wines in the four corners of the world. Floral aromas in the whites, smooth flavors of spices and wild berries in the reds. There is also Moscatel, king of wine production on the Setúbal Peninsula. These are just some of the gastronomic gems of Setúbal, an endless world of flavors, a genuine Land of Fish.
