This beautiful restaurant is nestled in a prime location yet, remains exclusive. The staff were impeccably dressed and exceptionally well mannered. The restaurant catered to all languages spoken at the table. Three tasting menus were available, one of the options was vegan. The local taste of Algarve menu was decadent and fresh. We experienced a burst of flavours indigenous to nearby areas and, learnt about new produce obtained from nearby monchique and rio formosa. Each dish was presented with a keen eye for detail and the art of fine dining was maintained. The fish dishes were refreshing and the pork dish was hearty and succulent with a beautiful crisp piece of crackling seasoned to perfection. Although there are more than 1000 ways to make bacalhau; I was impressed with the chefs rendition. The palette cleanser was a pure work of art created by the head pastry chef. He offered an olive shaped and flavored ice cream- a new delight to the tastebuds. The dessert and sweets were not overly sweet and portion size was just right to appreciate all the menus had to offer.
I would recommend this restaurant for an intimate occasion as the lush surrounds and decor contribute to a more modern romantic setting.
Meraviglioso ristorante di haute cuisine. L’ambiente è perfetto per una cena romantica, il personale è gentile ed educato, servizio impeccabile. Chef favoloso che fa magie culinarie. Io e il mio fidanzato ci siamo andati settimana scorsa. Unico peccato, lui è allergico ai gatti e siccome eravamo fuori nel giardino sono venuti vicino al nostro tavolo 2 mici.
Étant donné le coût élevé ce restaurant pourrait mieux faire au niveau des saveurs et du service ! Nous étions venus l’année dernière et nous avions été plus satisfait !
We were so pleased with our experience at Al Quimia. The tasting menus were fantastic and they catered exceptionally well for our gluten free diner who is especially susceptible due to coeliac disease. The wine suggestion was also excellent and everyone was very kind, speaking a mix of Spanish, English and Portuguese! The head chef and pastry chef also took the time to personally greet our table and explain some of the dishes. Everything was delicious and made to perfection - my partner even got a birthday cake with a candle - thank you so much Al Quimia for a beautiful evening!
serata indimenticabile. cucina moderna, materie prime ottime.
Boa Comida, excelente Serviço. O local onde está enquadrado num Hotel de 5 Estrelas não acompanha a qualidade do serviço e da comida. Wc partilhados, restaurante sem vista, decoração razoável.
Après une soirée de rêve un petit peu spéciale en amoureux, je ne peux que remercier les différents et différentes serveurs/ serveuses qui ont rendu cette soirée magique et possible.
Pour ce qui est de la cuisinière elle est parfaite ! Rien à redire. Des accords en goûts et saveurs parfaites.
J’espère pouvoir revenir et profites de ce commentaire pour remercier, encore une fois, tout le service ❤️
Parfait du début à la fin les plats fabuleux et le service accueillant agréable les serveurs et serveuses son très gentil ce restaurant mérite 3 étoile merci pour ce beau moment

Great tasting menu. Food was very well thought out. Chefs were kind and catered to my allergy very well. Service was out of this world. Really went the extra mile on everything. The server even printed a personalized menu of our tasting menu with my name and the date for us to take home. Great experience. Worth the price
Sensacional, uma experiência ímpar
