Food & Beverages

Is not uncommon to see locals, even people driving from Lisbon , coming in at lunch and dinnertime, to taste the exquisite and inspired cuisine of Vincent Farges, faithful and creative disciple of the three-starred chef Antoine Westermann, Buerehiesel restaurant, Strasbourg . Vincent Farges leads a team at the ultra-modern kitchen facilities of Fortaleza do Guincho. Still in his early thirties, he holds a solid experience working in some of Europe's foremost restaurants, namely in France and Greece . The last of them was the restaurant of “La Grande Bretagne ” Hotel in Greece as Executive Sub chef.

The menus reflect the richness and tradition of French cuisine, with a Portuguese accent. It was a worry of Antoine Westermann, who has the Restaurant under his direction since the beginning, to be able to understand and get acquainted with the vast culinary tradition of Portugal . Then he and Vincent Farges applied the concept of the owner of the Buerehiesel restaurant, based, in his own words, in "la cuisine de ma mère", or "my mother's cooking". Rigorous and demanding choice of ingredients, cooked in a way that best preserves their natural flavors and structure, make for a truly different gastronomic experience. The menus change frequently, so it's always a renewed pleasure to eat at Fortaleza.

The wine list is quite surely among the best offered in Portugal , covering both Portuguese and French wines, all carefully chosen by Fortaleza 's sommeliers and Vincent Farges, taking into account what is being offered on the menus. You will find both bordeaux 's grand crus and "vins de boutique" made by talented and emerging Portuguese wine producers.
