the Art of Dining
The Ocean Restaurant at VILA VITA Parc is an exceptional gourmet experience. Holder of two Michelin stars, the intimate restaurant creates tasting menus that are exquisite renditions of the art of fine dining.
Executive chef Hans Neuner and his team have reached and mantained enviable standards of excellence in a relatively short period of time and were awarded their first coveted Michelin star in 2009, winning the second Michelin star in 2011, and retaining them every year since. Ocean Restaurant is also included in the famed La Liste of the top 1000 restaurants in the world - ranked in the top 25 of the very best. Chef Neuner's commitment to using local produce allied with precision, skill and passion ensure spectacular menus.
Using locally grown fruit and vegetables, locally caught fish and organic meat from the Vila Vita Parc country estate Herdade dos Grous, new menus are created regularly. Chef Neuner's philosophy is to create elegantly simple, classic and assured cuisine, inspired by authentic flavours.
Ocean Restaurant is a mix of intimacy and vastness. Intimate in that the dining room accommodates just over 30 diners. This guarantees that each diner enjoys truly individual service and ensures that the highest parameters of fine dining are maintained. Vastness, in the amazing and immersive ocean views and huge horizon that enfold diners as they enter the restaurant.
The glorious cuisine at Ocean Restaurant is frequently inspired by the ocean and the decor and views enhance this even more. The very decor emanates an ocean deep ambience that is as entrancing as it is relaxing. The restaurant overlooks the VILA VITA gardens and the view sweeps down to the coastline and majestic Atlantic. The ambience is calm, elegant and relaxed, and is the perfect background for a memorable experience. The wonderful food is perfectly complemented by the extensive and impressive wine list. The staff are happy to offer recommendations and wine pairing for each course.
The Ocean Restaurant menu for 2023 continues the voyage of flavour discovery initiated in past years, and this year's inspiration is 'Memories of Brazil' with 12 distinct moments.

The menu costs 265 Euros and offers a wine pairing option for 165 Euros.
VILA VITA Parc is firmly on the gourmet world map.

Ocean Restaurant is just one of Vila Vita Parc's excellent restaurants. For the best in portuguese cuisine we suggest the Adega Restaurant and for wonderful beachside dining it's hard to beat the Arte Náutica beach restaurant, Praia Dourada and NANA on the Beach. And for something quite different, visit the Vila Vita Biergarten for a true Bavarian evening.
