“A restaurateur’s mission is to anticipate what the market needs, even though it doesn’t know it yet.”
Creators of Gastronomic Universes
We are a multi-brand group with over 20 years of experience in the Portuguese market. Our goal is to create original innovative concepts and to place equal emphasis on intrinsically different brands. Our enterprising spirit embraces both the rapid rise of fast casual and the details of haute cuisine.

We are committed to a path oriented by innovation, quality and attention to detail, whilst maintaining a broad portfolio of brands with emphasis on compelling and differentiated identities.

From the shopping center to the street, the cobblestone sidewalk to Michelin stars, Plateform is constantly creating unique gastronomic universes to enhance the future of Portugal’s restaurant industry.
Plateforvision
Creating gastronomic universes that anticipate the flavour of the ages and that linger in the taste buds of Portugal
We believe in the immateriality of flavors, in the magic of recipes and in emotions composed over the heat of a kitchen oven and that only the mouth can read. We value the architecture of the senses and the seasoning of details that enhance the service and the overall flavour of the experience. Our soul is vitaminated by the desire to do something different, by the adrenaline of challenges and by a continuous overcoming of obstacles.
Plateformission
To be Portugal's top-of-mouth restaurant group, leader in the diversified offer of authentic gastronomic experiences
We want to have the biggest impact on Portugal’s new restaurant trends and to play an active role in the gastronomic evolution of a country that is increasingly more open to the world. Our mission is to offer authentic gastronomic experiences, in which the diversity of unique concepts, innovation and professionalism are the main ingredients. Being top-of-mouth means continuing to feed our passion for the future of Portugal’s restaurant sector.
Plateforvalues
Vitaminated spirit
From our CEO and founder Rui Sanches we obtain visionary courage and assertiveness. We have the “addictive” desire to create new projects and the energy of a business and human “muscle” that leads the market and strengthens the group’s brands.
High performance restaurants
We exceed in each “taste” to create innovative restaurants that last over time, in which customer experience is the driver for everything we do.
Top-of-mouth
We want to continue feeding our passion for the future of Portugal’s restaurants, valuing and fostering the talent of everyone who is part of the Plateform universe.
