We are going to Lisbon and we are worried because we have heard Portugal isn't great for vegetarian food.Does anyone know what it's like for vegetarians there?

You can find a list of vegetarian restaurants in Lisbon here:<br><a href="http://www.centrovegetariano.org/Restaurantes-Lisboa.html" target="_blank">http://www.centrovegetariano.org/Res...es-Lisboa.html</a> (it's in portuguese, so it may not be a great help but it's the most complete list)<br><br>
Here you have infos in english:<br><a href="http://www.happycow.net/europe/portugal/lisbon/" target="_blank">http://www.happycow.net/europe/portugal/lisbon/</a><br><a href="http://www.vegdining.com/GetRestList.cfm?rgk=EU-POR" target="_blank">http://www.vegdining.com/GetRestList.cfm?rgk=EU-POR</a><br><br>
Lisbon and Oporto have a decent offer of vegetarian and vegan restaurants<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> But to be honest, in general, it isn't a very veg*n friendly country.

Thank you for your helpful reply.We are taking a vegetarian spread and some cheeses.I don't think the cheese there is supposed to be very tasty.

If the Portugese restaurants arent working out for you, look for itallian restaurants instead. Nearly everywhere has them, and I've never been to one that didnt have at least something veggie on the menue.<br><br>
Also,(perhaps stating the obvious) if you don't speak portugese, make sure you take a good enough dictionary/phrasebook to properly read a menu so you are capable of checking for yourself what you can eat.

Portuguese Cheese is in fact delicious-as is the wine.<br><br>
Also if you're eating Italian you can be sure the Cheese on anything is from Portugal-why would it not be?
