Michelin awards stars for 12 Portuguese restaurants

Twelve Portuguese restaurants have been distinguished in the 2014 Michelin Guide with one establishment in Almancil losing a star, one in Lisbon recovering a star and one restaurant in Montemor-o-Novo winning a star for the first time.

The 2014 edition of the Michelin Guide to Spain and Portugal was presented last week at the Guggenheim museum in the Basque town of Bilbao, in Spain, to an audience of chefs, food critics and journalists.
As in the 2013 edition, the 2014 guide awards two stars (“excellent table, worth a detour”) to Ocean restaurant, ‘captained’ by Hans Neuner in Lagoa, and Vila Joya, led by Dieter Koschina in Albufeira.
Next year, eight restaurants are keeping a Michelin star (“very good in their category”): Willie’s (Vilamoura), Henrique Leis (Almancil), Il Gallo d’Oro (Funchal), Casa da Calçada (Amarante), Fortaleza do Guincho (Cascais), The Yeatman (Vila Nova de Gaia), Feitoria and Belcanto (both in Lisbon).
São Gabriel restaurant, in Almancil, lost its star but L’And Vineyards, in Montemor-o-Novo, with chef Miguel Laffan, was awarded a star for the first time.
Restaurant Eleven, in Lisbon, under the leadership of chef Joachim Koerper, regained the star it had lost in 2012.
In Spain, the guide awarded three stars to eight restaurants, two stars to 20 and one star to 146 eateries.
