ABOUT SÃO GABRIEL
- OUR CONCEPT -
São Gabriel restaurant creative cuisine features strong sea tastes, because most of the creations include fish from the Atlantic Ocean.
Our creations are strongly innovative and inspired in the traditional Portuguese dishes and especially in the Algarve flavors, featuring creativity and boldness.
Our aim is to create a unique experience to our clients, that even if their eyes were shut they would know they were in Portugal.
What do inspire me? The landscapes and products from our country and our region. The tastes from my childhood, as well as my trips and experiences lived in different cultures.
One of the pillars of our cuisine is to ensure the highest quality of our products, preserving its “TRUE” taste. The other pillar is to reinterpret ancestral dishes with the touch of cutting-edge techniques.
Our goal is to achieve a less complex and more natural cuisine, that’s why we look for new ways to surprise our clients every day, through a product culture and a vanguard creativity.

Black Summer Truffle
We rented in the area for a year and didn't visit this restaurant. We were over on holiday and knew we had to come. Beautiful warm evening, so we sat outside. We all decided on the Al La Carte menu, I had the scallops, hake and take on the banana flambé. Each course was sensational, couldn't fault a thing, or the service. Ok it's not cheap, but quality rarely is. Just wish we hadn't waited so long!
“Best meal we've eaten in Portugal”
For a relaxed and comfortable restaurant either inside or out in the garden area this is the top place. Everyone is friendly and courteous without an obvious presence. They are attentive when needed but unobtrusive in the background. Most perfect service from an amazing menu.
Dining here is a luxury but one heartily recommended during any stay in this part of the Algarve. Well worth its Michelin Star.
“Simply the best”
Simply, one of the best meals I have ever enjoyed: perfectly balanced flavours and cooked to perfection. The Scorpion Fish is outstanding. A friendly welcome, fabulous service, a charming courtyard, what more could anyone want? Oh, and it's also extremely good value, with plenty of reasonable choices.
“Exquisite, Michelin-star experience”
