The North American magazine Wine Spectator has once again distinguished the restaurant in Carvoeiro for its wine selection
– September 5, 2022
The One Restaurant, at the Tivoli Hotel in Carvoeiro, was first awarded back in 2020. Now, the restaurant has once again won the Award of Excellence, integrated into an exclusive list of 3,200 restaurants distributed across 70 countries and territories, out of which only seven are from Portugal.
Winners of the Wine Spectator’s Awards go through fierce competition, having to prove their variety and quality (with at least 90 wines), their balance with the different menus, and also their price-quality relation.
“It’s a privilege to receive this highly prized international award that recognises the quality of the selection of wines we present daily to our diners. Our wine menu has a focus on Portuguese wines, particularly from the Algarve, in a diverse selection of wines from the most classic to the most recent producers. All in all, we suggested 160 national and international labels with a very good quality-price value blending in seamless harmony with the menu of our chef Bruno Augusto,” said The One’s sommelier Francisco Meira.
The stunning view of the Carvoeiro cliff goes perfectly with the wine cellar of The One, offering a true and immersive gastronomic experience. Along with the different options to accompany the menu, the wine list also offers special wine pairings from national and regional producers.
The One’s menu is also inspired by regional products, maintaining its authenticity and respecting the seasonality of each produce. This summer’s menu features its successful dishes, such as the oven turbot or the tempura octopus with berbigão malandrinho rice, while also offering some new dishes like the foie gras with rhubarb, peach, bela luz and pistachio or the carabineiro shrimp with avocado, cocoa and passion fruit.
