Stepping into Balagan will throw you immediately into that exciting world full of oriental aromas, sensual textures, and intense colors. A unique culinary experience in Ericeira, rooted in seasonally sourced foods that are supplied by neighboring fishermen and farmers but once served to your table transformed into a vibrant Mediterranean cuisine. And let’s even rethink drinking and celebrate slow sipping with a variety of fermented, brewed and hand-crafted drinks.

Our story

We literally started with a big Balagan - a Hebrew word for charming chaos. Found and owner Kat created a personalized delivery service from her own kitchen at home during the infamous Covid-19 crisis in 2020. Following her passion for cooking and a vision of creating a fun and inclusive food culture inspired by the Middle East, Balagan quickly turned into a proper restaurant business and an insider tip for foodies.
