Honouring Portuguese cuisine – Portugal to receive its own Michelin Guide

On 27 February 2024, the first Michelin Guideline Gala in Portugal will take place in Albufeira, celebrating the best of Portuguese gastronomy. The announcement was made on 2 June, at a press conference held at the Faro Hotel and Tourism School.


After more than 100 years of the existence of the prestigious Michelin Guide, the sought-after autonomy and distinction of Portuguese gastronomy will become a reality. In a ceremony that began with a welcome drink in the morning, in which Algarve products were honoured, namely the famous Algarve orange, the venue of the first Michelin Gala of Portugal was revealed, which will be at the Palácio dos Congressos, in Albufeira.



“This region is known for its beaches and natural beauty, but its gastronomy is an excellent factor of attraction, closely linked to the sea. Combining the qualities of the region with the international recognition of the Michelin guide is a recipe that enhances the identity of the Algarve region,” said Nuno Ferreira, from the Michelin Guide Portugal.
