If you are looking for a stylish dinner or if you're in the need to impress your running partner, than you may want to skip Porto's traditional 'francesinha in a beer-house' or the 'bifanas @conga' and make a reservation at a more exclusive place like the ones on this list.
We run right past the front entrance of most of them in Porto on our running tours and that may help you decide which one fits you the best, based on its location and some of the information we provide!
Read on for our 2020's short list of restaurants for a Michelin-starred food experience in Porto:
Back in 1900, French tire manufacturers André and Edouard Michelin created the Michelin Guide. Their goal was to compel some of the 3,000 car owners in France to travel more and speed up their need for tire replacements. In 1926, the guide expanded to include fine dining. The Red Guide by Michelin is now "the oldest European hotel and restaurant reference guide, which awards up to three Michelin stars for excellence to a select few establishments. The acquisition or loss of a star can have dramatic effects on the success of a restaurant." source
Here's the list of those with stars in Porto:
Runners who have joined us for a Sunrise tour know this one. A couple of steps away from the Crystal Palace gardens, surrounded by luxurious green, Antiqvvm's present building is also a Museum (the 2 upper floors). Its terrace is a privileged vantage point to watch the sunset and sip on a glass of Port, just before you head inside for a genuine Portuguese gourmet experience.
Average price à la carte: 120 Eur
Weekdays - Executive menu : 25 Eur. p.p.
