Alma, a signature cuisine restaurant, offers a casual and yet sophisticated vibrant ambiance. it was the first project in his own name by Henrique Sá Pessoa, in partnership with Plateform de Rui Sanches, one of the greatest Portuguese restaurateurs. Three years ago, it celebrated the arrival of the first Michelin Star. In 2017 renews his vows and the following year the chef and his team are awarded with two stars at the Michelin Guide Portugal and Spain 2019 presentation gala.
In Henrique Sá Pessoa’s kitchen, flavour plays the leading role. At Alma, experience complements the gastronomic philosophy. This is part of its DNA, knowledge of traditional Portuguese cuisine combined with refined flavours, with perfect technique and excellent products. The menu, which includes two tasting options, is proof of this philosophy. Alma’s menu reveals the restaurant’s identity, with the chef’s five selected dishes – a deeper plunge into the soul of Alma. The Costa a Costa menu, a homage to our coast’s fish and shellfish, is the link to the sea. For the more undecided clients, there are options à la carte. “At Alma we endeavour to serve more than just a meal: we serve emotions, identity, know-how. Ultimately, we endeavour to create a kitchen with depth, which is also a consequence of our experience,” says Chef Henrique Sá Pessoa.
