A star is born

First Michelin Star for Carvoeiro.

In late November, restaurateur Nuno Diogo and chef Rui Silvestre received the news that they had been dreaming of for most of their professional lives: restaurant Bon Bon, in Sesmarias, was awarded a Michelin star.

The news broke just as Bon Bon was closing for its winter break, which was probably just as well, as Nuno had some major renovations planned and what better way to open in 2016 than with a stunning new look and a prestigious Michelin star under their belt?  Chef Rui Silvestre spent most of the winter basking in the glory of his spectacular new achievement, travelling around Europe developing new ideas and appearing as a guest chef.  Full of new ideas, an extended kitchen that is tooled to deliver some serious gourmet delights and an impressive new aquatic-design dining room, complete with a temperature-controlled wine room that houses some spectacular wines, the team at Bon Bon is proud to welcome you to its Michelin-starred restaurant.

Already a firm favourite with local foodies and on the radar of Michelin stargazers, it looks like they are in for a very busy year. Advance reservations are recommended. 282 341 496 | 962 441 493
