About Petiscaria

Portugal is like an unpolished diamond. It is a fantastic and fast developing country of gastronomy, but for many people still unknown. Portugal has a strong tradition of tasty cooking and its importance as a wine producer is increasing worldwide. Visitors are impressed by the local food and drinks, but surprisingly there were no Portuguese restaurants in Finland before Petiscaria.

Petiscaria was created to bring the Portuguese gastronomy to Finland. Our service is based on Portuguese traditions and products which we transport from Portugal. We work directly with the best Portuguese food and wine producers. Petiscaria is a restaurant and a small gourmet shop with tasty food, nice atmosphere and friendly service. We want to make our customers feel welcomed, to enjoy their stay, and to leave the restaurant with a big smile on their faces.


Food and Beverage

Food

The cuisine is mostly drawing inspiration from Portuguese gastronomy, but with a twist of our interpretation of each dish. The menu offers a range of snacks, main dishes and desserts. We like to keep our most popular dishes all year round, but we also want to introduce new dishes so each visit may provide a different gastronomic experience.

The beverages

We import all the wines ourselves. These wines is made by those who we know, whose vineyards we love, and whose journeys we share. It’s honest wine made in Portugal with love and care. We believe wine made in this way tastes better, is more vibrant, and suits our food perfectly.

Our beers and spirits are also from Portugal – we brought all the classics and the latest newbies to give you a glimpse of the sunny Portugal.


Catering

From corporate services to private parties, Petiscaria is specialised in personal caterings. Petiscaria, is a Portuguese flexible and exciting company, that is able to provide high quality and reliable food and drink services for both large and small events. We have plenty of references of private events, major events, corporate celebrations, concerts and other public gatherings of various sizes and catering services. We were pleasantly agitated in Helsinki area, but when needed we are willing to take the tasty serving of Portugal and the unmatched service to other parts of the Helsinki metropolitan area.

Our aim is to create an event according to your special needs and expectations. Whenever you have a need for catering service, contact us. We are gladly at your disposal.

The Team

Petiscaria is a small dream of three entrepreneurs who wanted to bring a corner of Portugal to Helsinki; Maria João, Pekka and Carlos.

We decided to bring the sunny and warm spirit of Portuguese people and Portuguese food to Helsinki.

Maria João

Maria João knows Portuguese gastronomy in and out. She was running her own takeaway restaurant in the 90`s in her home city Porto. Maria João has a solid network of Portuguese food producers, experts and restaurants. In Petiscaria she is responsible for all purchases made in Portugal. During many years her dream was to open a Portuguese restaurant in Helsinki, where she arrived in year 1999, to spread Portuguese gastronomy and culture.

Carlos

Carlos came to Helsinki 2012 and he has worked among others in kitchens of Michelin restaurants Chez Dominic and Olo. During last years he has been managing new restaurant openings in Royal Restaurants. Recently he opened Restaurant Nolla with his colleagues. Nolla is the first zero waste restaurant in Nordic countries.

Pekka

Pekka

Pekka has also a great passion for Portuguese gastronomy, which he learned to know well during his several visits to Portugal. Being a wine enthusiast he started in year 2011, together with his wife Maria João, importing Portuguese wines to Finland. Honeyhill Wines Oy is today well known to have the best selection of Portuguese quality wines. Pekka is an experienced entrepreneur and has been running his own companies since 1989.

Shop

Petiscaria Shop is a window of the best of Portugal. Here you can find gourmet products, tradicional portuguese brands and organic alternatives. We have a variety of Portuguese cheeses, hams, choriços, olives, jams biscuits, organic teas, coffee and other delicious products.
