Algarve CHEF EXPERIENCE

Where the many flavours meet

When visiting MAR Shopping you'll have the opportunity to enjoy four haute cuisine restaurants headed by starred chefs that take care of the variety of the menus and select the ingredients for their quality and freshness.

Steak tartare, country chicken, liver paté or crispy prawns are just some of the mouthwatering dishes Chef Guy Doré serves in his classic French cuisine-inspired G’s Bistro. In Guy’s pots and pans, Dijon mustard, cream, herbes de Provence and French cheeses meet Algarvean fruits and vegetables, all accompanied by local wines and artisanal beers.

More exotic sweet and sour flavours with a spicy twist, are just a step away from G’s Bistro. At Thai Brás, 25 years of professional and academic experience have taught starred Chef Leonel Pereira how to skillfully blend Asian flavours with typical Mediterranean ingredients like onions, olive oil, garlic and laurel.

As the name already reveals, the My Pastta is all about pasta – and traditional Italian cuisine, of course. Beautifully presented in the restaurant’s window displays, freshly handmade spaghetti, tagliatelle and all sorts of shorter cuts are ready to be picked and chosen, and then dressed with classic Italian sauces from Chef Louis Anjos’ secret recipe book.

Finally, for an all-Portuguese experience, The Portuguese Lab headed by Chef José Domingos celebrates cod and other typical produce from the area, mastering traditional local recipes.

As Chef Leonel Pereira puts it, the Algarve Chef Experience is all about “breaking the repetitive choice in shopping-centre food courts”. And by making haute cuisine accessible to the many people, we have also added an important value to our business.
