Absolutely marvellous! Some people might like to see a couple of simpler items on the menu.

São Gabriel was an amazing experience. We chose one of the tasting menus and despite a bit suspicious, we opted for the "Sea Menu", which has no meat at all. I have to say that it turned out to be a delicious surprise and exceeded our best expectations. Regarding the wine pairing, well balanced but I have to highlight the magnificent rum in the end. By far the best rum we ever tasted. The staff was at all times extremely polite and professional, mixing the formality with the enthusiasm they show at their work and that warm hospitality Portuguese people have. The location and the tables outside are the perfect place to enjoy a meal or just spend some time during a summer night. Worth of note, no problems with bugs flying around. For sure a place we will visit again in the near future.

We enjoyed an amazing meal with our children. The food was outstanding and the attention to detail made the experience a real pleasure. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable. We were lucky to meet Leonel Pereira, an inspirational man who shared his culinary pleasure with our children making them excited and involved in a magical evening. We have dined in other michelin starred restaurants as a family and this one stands out as special. Thank you.

Wir hatten relativ früh (19.00) reserviert. Wir sassen zu zweit auf der Terrasse im schönen Garten. Wir hatten eines der beiden vorgeschlagenen Menüs auf der Karte. Das Essen und der Service im São Gabriel waren hervorragend. Geschmacklich überzeugten alle Gänge. Würden jederzeit wieder hin gehen und können es nur wärmsten empfehlen.

Our reservation was for a large group of 16 people. The staff at Sāo Gabriel could not have been more accommodating and friendly. They gave us two tables of 8 on the outdoor patio which felt very cozy and private. The food and wine were amazing. Chef Leonel Pereira came to the table at the end of dinner and made us all feel very welcome. We returned the next night to eat at their Thai Restaurant next door (also a great experience). I would highly recommend this restaurant and will return for sure next time we visit the Algarve.

Serviço de excelência, o menu de degustação viagens traduz de forma deliciosa os sabores de alguns locais do mundo incluindo PT. Apenas salientar que não é aceitável que uma experiência deste nível possa ser perturbada pelo cheiro a tabaco proveniente de uma mesa adjacente, a quem não é fumador, sobretudo quando não é visível qualquer sinalética.

Dear Sao Gabriel, We were not expecting to give any feedback to not embarass you but if you ask through your marketing system, we see no choice than give you our real feeling after this evening in your premises. We are used to go to 1, 2 and 3 stars restaurant all over the world and this was simply our worst experience ever. We took the travel menu and apart from the first course which was acceptable the rest was simply out of Michelin standard and sometimes simply disgusting. Let’s start with the cod fish which had nothing to be proud of. Taste of the fish and of the clams was ok but everything together with the polenta was a below average plate. Then what you call prawn on your menu but was a langoustine was unfortunately killed by the Thai sauce. The Thai sauce was very good in itself but why killing such a fine taste shell fish with such a strong tasty sauce. No logic in this plate. Then we got the Turbot which was untasty and too much cooked. The best of the worse was then the supposed fois gras stuffed quail. The poor quail was stuffed with a mixture of liver that nobody could tell it was fois gras. The taste was so awkward that only has two bites. One to start and the second to confirm the awful taste of the first one. We won’t go to the cheese and the desert but what we can say is that Michelin should certainly and definitely check again your restaurant. Nowhere in the world your cuisine should have a one star. The small fish restaurants 3km away at vale de Lobo are way better than that and they serve simple Charcoal BBQed fish. Very unsatisfied customers!!!!
