Portugal's 2024 Michelin Stars revealed

Atualizado: 4 de mar.

The first ever all-Portuguese Michelin Gala took place this week at the Nau Salgados Palace in Albufeira. Paying tribute to the “crème de la crème” of Portuguese gastronomy, the highly-anticipated moment marked the launch of the Portuguese guide and was the first instance the country was not part of a joint ceremony with neighbouring Spain.

Although the much anticipated third star did not materialize, the big news of the night was the elevation of a second restaurant to two-star status. Chef Vítor Matos’s Antiqvvm in Porto received the honor for its consistently high quality of cooking. It’s also a recognition of Matos’s other collaborations and tutelage; 2 Monkeys, his partnership with Francisco Quintas in Lisbon, received one star tonight, and the resident chef at his restaurant Blind, Rita Magro, won the Young Chef Award.

For 2024, the guide recommends 167 restaurants in total, meaning almost all of last year’s winners retained their ratings. (The ones that didn’t either closed or saw the departure of their head chef.) The country now holds 47 conventional stars, plus several green ones.

All seven of last year’s two-star restaurants maintained that status. There are Alma, by Henrique Sá Pessoa and Belcanto by José Avillez in Lisbon, Casa da Cha da Boa Nova by Rui Paula Cardoso and the Yeatman, by Ricardo Costa near Porto, Il Gallo d’Oro by Benoît Sinthon in Funchal, Ocean by Hans Neuner and Vila Joya by Dieter Koschina in the Algarve.

The MICHELIN Guide Portugal 2024 confirmed the country’s exceptional gastronomic growth with the attribution of four new one-star additions, with the total number of establishments in this category in Portugal now amounting to 31.

They were 2 Monkeys by Vitor Matos and Francisco Quintas in Lisbon, Desarma by Octávio Freitas in Madeira, Ó Balcão by Rodrigo Castelo in Santarém and Sála de João Sá bv the chef of the same name in Lisbon. This brings the total to 31 one-stars.
