There are three one star Michelin restaurants in Portugal: A Feitoria in Belem, The Yeatman in Porto and Il Gallo d'Oro in Funchal. We only happened to visit Il Gallo d'Oro, but this was our best Michelin restaurant experience and also our best meal in Portugal. The time commitment for the tasting menu was quite large: 7:30pm until 11:30pm, but it was a perfect way to end our stay in Porto. The sommelier was always knowledgeable and did not hesitate to go and find a response to our questions. Of course, being Portugal, everyone speaks flawless English. The dining room was not crowded, so there was an atmosphere that felt cozy, but never impersonal as can happen with too many diners. Tip: get there before your reservation and enjoy the sunset on Porto (see photos).
