Peniche is full of flavour

Fish and seafood enrich the local cuisine, the soups and stews. Among many others is the specialty, “Peniche Fish Stew”. There are also sardines, grilled on the traditional grills at the doors of the restaurants. They are special, as is the Lobster, which is sweated, Peniche style. To accompany, wines from the western region are a good choice.

Other Flavours: the delicious sweets which stand out are the Peniche tarts, Amigos de Peniche “Penich Friends” and “Esses”, which are almond biscuits.
