Two Algarve restaurants have been awarded two Michelin stars. The Vila Joya restaurant near Galé and the Ocean Restaurant at Vila Vila Parc near Armação de Pêra.

Portugal now has 23 Michelin star restaurants of which only five have the two-star accolade. Vista in Praia da Rocha and Gusto at Quinta do Lago’s Conrad Algarve are the only Portuguese restaurants to have been awarded a new star this year.
