Is not uncommon to see locals, even people driving from Lisbon , coming in at
lunch and dinnertime, to taste the exquisite and inspired cuisine of Vincent
Farges, faithful and creative disciple of the three-starred chef Antoine
Westermann, Buerehiesel restaurant, Strasbourg . Vincent Farges leads a team at
the ultra-modern kitchen facilities of Fortaleza do Guincho. Still
in his early thirties, he holds a solid experience working in some of Europe's
foremost restaurants, namely in France and Greece . The last of them was the
restaurant of “La Grande Bretagne ” Hotel in Greece as Executive Sub chef.
The menus reflect the richness and tradition of French cuisine, with a
Portuguese accent. It was a worry of Antoine Westermann, who has the Restaurant
under his direction since the beginning, to be able to understand and get
acquainted with the vast culinary tradition of Portugal . Then he and Vincent
Farges applied the concept of the owner of the Buerehiesel restaurant, based, in
his own words, in "la cuisine de ma mère", or "my mother's cooking". Rigorous
and demanding choice of ingredients, cooked in a way that best preserves their
natural flavors and structure, make for a truly different gastronomic
experience. The menus change frequently, so it's always a renewed pleasure to
eat at Fortaleza.
The wine list is quite surely among the best offered in Portugal , covering
both Portuguese and French wines, all carefully chosen by Fortaleza 's
sommeliers and Vincent Farges, taking into account what is being offered on the
menus. You will find both bordeaux 's grand crus and "vins de boutique" made by
talented and emerging Portuguese wine producers.
