Algarve gains two more Michelin stars

in Algarve · 23-11-2017 14:08:00 · 0 Comments

The Algarve has gained two new Michelin stars in the Michelin Guide 2018 awards ceremony, held on Wednesday in Tenerife, taking the overall number of restaurants in Portugal with the coveted stars to 23.

While the rest of the accolades in Portugal remained unchanged on last year’s Guide, the two new awards both went to the Algarve, one to the Gusto by Heinz Beck restaurant at the Conrad Algarve Hotel in Quinta do Lago, and the other to the Vista restaurant, at the award-winning Bela Vista hotel in Praia da Rocha, spearheaded by young Portuguese chef João Oliveira.
Portugal now has a total of 23 restaurants distinguished with Michelin stars, five of which have two stars and eight of which are in the Algarve.
These are Vila Joya (Albufeira), under chef Dieter Koschina, Ocean, under chef Hans Neuner, at Vila Vita (Lagoa), both of which have maintained their two Michelin-star rating, along with the Bon Bon, under chef Rui Silvestre, in Carvoeiro, Henrique Leis, by Henrique Leis, and São Gabriel, under Leonel Pereira, both in Almancil, and also Willie’s, by Willie Wurger, in Vilamoura, all of which have kept their one-star rating.
