The call of the south – Palmares Resort fine dining al Sud Opens in Style
The fine dining restaurant, AL SUD Palmares featured in Essential Algarve Magazine:
Under the guiding hand of Michelin Star anointed chef Louis Anjos, AL SUD brings exceptional dining to the Lagos area, taking its cue from the stunning surroundings of its home, Palmares Ocean Living & Golf resort.
Housed within the arresting architecture of the resort’s Clubhouse, designed by Pritzker Prize winners RCR Arquitectes, with jaw-dropping views across the sweeping Bay of Lagos from its vantage point just above Meia Praia beach, AL SUD finds rewarding inspiration in its location. Suitably inspired, chef Louis Anjos has leafed through the Algarve cookbook, and scoured the region’s produce, sea and land, to produce a deliciously curated series of ‘gastronomic moments’, each one showcasing the very best the resort and the region has to offer.
Highlights on AL SUD’s unique tasting menus include Bluefin Tuna with Ria de Alvor Oysters, Oscetra Caviar and Granny Smith Apple, or the iconic Algarve Scarlet Shrimp with Rendered Pork Belly and Codium, among many others. With outstanding service and setting, AL SUD aims to “provide a sensory experience to diners, ensuring they take with them all this passion and remember us, keen to return,” Louis Anjos explains, adding, “I feel privileged to have access to the best local produce, such as oysters, razor clams and coastal clams […] and magnificent fish from nearby Sagres fish market.”
Open for dinner only from Tuesday to Saturday (July & August), by reservation only, AL SUD has room for 24 guests. The fine dining experience is complemented in the Palmares Clubhouse by a second eatery, with a Mediterranean-style menu, offering guests and golfers relaxed, light food, breakfast to dinner, while soaking up the unforgettable beachfront atmosphere of Palmares.
