The Brasserie is a bistro restaurant with inspirational culinary cuisine. A new style of fusion cuisine served in a casual ambience. This mouth-watering blend of bistro and gastronomy is the perfect addition to your Foodie bucket list!
The Brasserie is situated to the west of Albufeira, in Sesmarias, close to Galé, the Marina of Albufeira, Praia do Castelo, Praia da Coelho, Praia do Evaristo, all within a few minutes. There are many rental properties close by, as well as some noticeable hotels and resorts, such as Hapimag, the new Marriott W Algarve Hotel & Residences and Vila Joya, the Michelin-starred resort down the road, to name a few.
Our outdoor dining is protected from the prevailing wind, which allows for pleasant evenings of al fresco dining outside. Even if it is slightly chilly, we provide you with blankets, and we have terrace heaters. When the temperatures really drop at night, our log-fired fireplace inside the restaurant makes this the place to be. This makes us a pleasant all-year-round dining option.
The Brasserie gets its name from a type of French restaurant found in the North-East of France close to the Belgian border, serving dishes in a relaxed atmosphere, often with an in-house brewery. Although “The Brasserie” does not yet produce its own beer, we do have a wide selection of Belgian bottled beers to reflect the Belgian roots of one of the owners. We also have the first self-tap dispensing facility in the Algarve. With six taps serving a selection of pilsners and IPA beers, check our Beer menu for the latest additions. At the request of some of our guests, we have added a barrel cooler to reduce the ambient temperature of the kegs. Each guest can hygienically pour his or her own beverage, as much or as little as they wish. Besides the beers, our local wines and cocktails are a must-try.
Our chef Alwin is continuously striving to come up with new ideas.
Chef Alwin runs the kitchen with dedication and consistent quality. Starting in his neighbourhood restaurant at 15, he has been taught by highly qualified chefs, some with Michelin-starred qualities. After completing his studies and suffering burnout at about 26, he moved to Portugal to recuperate. Since 2020 Chef Alwin has run our kitchen with dedication. Creating new dishes at regular intervals, both starters, mains and desserts, these mouth-watering dishes are most definitely worth a try.
