Al Quimia restaurant reopens at Epic Sana Algarve
Al Quimia, the fine dining restaurant at the Epic Sana Algarve resort in Albufeira, reopened on July 25 after eight months of renovations.
“Creative, modern and inspired by regional products and the close proximity to the sea” is how the revamped restaurant is described. Now with a capacity for 40 diners, Al Quimia offers clients a “sophisticated and comfortable atmosphere, with attention to detail and mindful service without the rigidity imposed by a fine dining environment”.
The menu is inspired by traditional Portuguese food and has been prepared by chef Luís Mourão, with a particular emphasis on products from the sea. Hugo Ribeiro is the sommelier while Tiago Nunes is the head baker.
“The cuisine is Portuguese, not in the way we know it in everyday life, but with the flavours of our childhood and that are part of our lives,” the chef explains.
There are two tasting menus available for €90 or €110 although clients can also select dishes from the à la carte menu.
The restaurant is open for dinner from 6.30pm to 10.30pm between Tuesday and Saturday (February to November).
