Imagine a grand banquet, everyone dressed to the nines, melodious tunes, and an ambiance reminiscent of Jane Austen's novels. The Burns Night in Cascais promises to resurrect a typical 18th-century evening in celebration of the Scottish poet Robert Burns. It all unfolds on January 25th.

The Casa de Santa Maria will transform into the stage for the 3rd edition of Burns Night in Cascais, an epicurean and cultural experience paying homage to Scotland and Robert Burns. The setting, table layout, and menu have been meticulously crafted to transport guests to the historical context, even including some period reenactments.

On the menu, expect a tasting of traditional haggis, a blend of sheep's liver, heart, and lungs minced and cooked with oatmeal and spices within the sheep's stomach. And of course, Scotch whisky will grace the occasion.

This event, organized by Cascais Food Lab in collaboration with The Cascais Burns Club and the Lisbon St. Andrew's Society, is part of the 2024 Culture at the Table series, aimed at unveiling the cultural and culinary traditions of communities contributing to Cascais' rich tapestry, particularly those of foreign residents. The evening, scheduled from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm, will feature the presence of the esteemed writer Hélia Correia.

The Burns Night in Cascais' dress code suggests 'creative black tie with tartan,' and the cost stands at £110. Members of The Cascais Burns Club can avail themselves of a 20% discount. This exclusive event will only accommodate 30 guests, and registrations must be made by January 20th via email at

Casa de Santa Maria (Cascais). Thu, Jan 25. 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm. €110.
