Meanwhile, chef Rui Silvestre will be serving dishes featuring razor clams, oysters, and clams.
The menu, costing €250 per person, consists of nine courses, divided into three appetizers, four main dishes, and two desserts, accompanied by wine pairing.
“Chef Henrique Sá Pessoa has been doing an incredible job both in our country and abroad, promoting our gastronomy. Therefore, he is the ideal person to celebrate the reopening of Vistas,” says Rui Silvestre.
Henrique Sá Pessoa added: “I am very excited to be at Vistas alongside Rui Silvestre, who has been doing remarkable work at the restaurant.
“The challenge of creating a menu based on our most emblematic dishes with a focus on fish, a product that characterizes the Algarve region and our country so well, is certainly very appealing and aligns with my work and values, which mainly revolve around showcasing the best of what Portugal produces,” he adds.
