avo restaurante ericeira

Avó means grandma in Portuguese, and all dishes are traditional Portuguese (like a grandma would make them), but with a modern twist. And let us tell you: they are wonderful. The menu changes all the time, because they only use seasonal and local ingredients. There are always 2 vegetarian options on the menu, both are usually great so you can’t go wrong. Ask the waiter or waitress which wine you should order with your meal, they are happy to help you with that. Traditionally the Portuguese kitchen revolves around meat and fish – but at Avó you can also have a great traditional Portuguese meal without either of these. R. dos Ferreiros nº6, Ericeira (Google Maps)

Enough options for both vegetarians and vegans: burgers, smoothies, juices and salads. Praia Foz do Lizandro, Carvoeira (Google Maps).
