Our Pre-Michelin Guide Spain and Portugal 2016 SuperChef Series by Gourmand Breaks – An insight into the world of some of the current Michelin star chefs in Spain and Portugal – is well underway. We previously showcased the current Michelin 2 star restaurants in Portugal (there are only 3): Belcanto, Ocean and Vila Joya.
There are currently no Michelin 3 star restaurants in Portugal so on now to the Michelin 1 star restaurants in Portugal. There are just 11 Michelin 1 Star restaurants in Portugal (at the moment) and we started our Michelin One Star Restaurants in Portugal with Yeatman and Ricardo Costa . Now we’re heading to Amarante and another chef heading a Hotel Restaurant:
Vítor Matos – trained in Switzerland and, after working in various hotel restaurants, finally joined the Casa da Calçada team in 2010 to head the Largo do Paço restaurant.
