From 1998 to 2014 Antoine Westermann, whose Le Buerehiesel restaurant in Strasbourg earned him 3 Michelin stars, displayed the results of the effect of the Portuguese setting on his French culinary background at Fortaleza do Guincho as Consultant Chef. Combined with rigorously selected ingredients, this has ensured that the restaurant is not only one of the best in Portugal, with one Michelin star, but is truly unique. The current Executive Chef at Fortaleza do Guincho is Miguel Rocha Vieira.
At the Fortaleza do Guincho, the restaurant’s magnificent view over the Atlantic Ocean adds a special flavour to the incomparable dishes. The Wine Spectator Magazine award winning wine list, offering more than 800 wines, is arguably the best in Portugal.
There are always various menus on offer, and the most difficult part of your meal will be choosing between the Season, Degustation and à-la-carte menus. Every month a different special dinner celebrating the relationship between food and wine is held, including wines specially chosen to accompany the dishes, or, if you like, with dishes carefully chosen to complement the wine.
The restaurant is open daily from 12:30 to 15:00 for lunch and from 19:30 to 22:30 for dinner.
The bar, spread over 3 rooms including the library, is open daily from 11:00 to 01:00.
