Welcome to


Délice member city

Currently, the Municipality of Lisbon, in a partnership with the Lisbon Tourism Office, is implementing an identity brand to promote Lisbon’s gastronomy: Lisboa Eat and Love It.

Lisbon is also promoting the international consolidation of Lisbon Gourmet, its food supply, the Chef’s and dining outlets and the rehabilitation of markets with the creation of spaces for catering as well as supporting events/initiatives for street food.

As future initiatives, the Lisbon brand partnership is envisaged with major structures, such as the European Academy of Gastronomy and the Culinary European Observatory.
