Alma was the only Portuguese restaurant to be awarded two stars in the 2019 Guide. Now, the restaurant has retained this status for the 2020 edition. The announcement was made on 20 November at a gala in Seville.
This is yet another huge compliment to the work done by Chef Henrique Sá Pessoa and his team in giving the Alma restaurant a new lease of life. The restaurant, which was opened in Chiado by Plateform in 2015, had already made history even before celebrating its first anniversary, when it was awarded its first Michelin star.
“Consistency and consolidation have always been our watchwords and I am so happy that, together, we have achieved this goal! A big thank you to the whole team, to Rui and Margarida Sanches, and to all the Plateform team, for yet another fantastic year”, Henrique Sá Pessoa said in reaction to the announcement.
The group CEO, Rui Sanches, also took the opportunity to congratulate all those who had made this possible. “Keeping these two stars is a source of great pride to all of us and is entirely down to an absolutely fantastic team. Their motivation and dedication ensure that the restaurant delivers quality food and service in the perfect setting, every single day. We are fully engaged with the huge responsibility of keeping up to the Michelin Guide standards on a year-round basis,” he added.
