The 2022 Michelin Stars have been announced - and once again, the Algarve sees its reputation as a gourmet destination enhanced. Ten stars in total will brighten the foodie constellation in Portugal's most southern region with two restaurants receiving 2 Michelin stars and a further 6 restaurants receiving one star each.

The coveted stars, awarded by the Michelin Guide for 2022, were announced on 14th Dec. 2021. All of the previous year's holders retained their stars while two new stars were awarded, bringing the total of Michelin Stars in Algarve to ten. In total, Portugal's Michelin haul is an impressive 40 stars across 33 restaurants.

In the Algarve, the newest stars went to A Ver Tavira, beautifully located overlooking the town of Tavira, and to Al Sud at Palmares in Lagos, which opened just 6 months ago.
