La opinión de la Guía Michelin
Rarely is the concept of “bringing the sea to your table” more apt or authentic than at this restaurant where the waves almost break in the dining room! In this unique and spectacular building (an officially listed national monument) standing on the rocks above the Praia da Boa Nova, chef Rui Paula presents cuisine inspired by a verse (“Hitherto unchartered waters”) by famous Portuguese poet Luís Vaz de Camões in his most celebrated work, The Lusiads. This is showcased on a concise, impressive and well-structured tasting menu entitled Cantos, which can be ordered with 6, 12 or 21 dishes. His cuisine, which is centred around the maritime world and which always makes full use of truly exceptional ingredients (Sea bass in its habitat; Sea urchin brûlée; Scarlet shrimp/Pineapple; Lobster/Olive Oil/Olive etc), has a strong focus on presentation, texture and flavour, as well as contemporary techniques that extract the maximum from the extraordinary fish and seafood from the Atlantic. When time allows, the chef also enjoys mixing with his guests in the dining room.
