Description: Imagem Following two very succesful decades at Buzio Restaruant, Prainha , Alvor. Chef Gilberto Gato went in search of a new home for his culinary skills. He believes he has found the perfect spot at Hexagone Restaurant. Near to the resort of Carvoeiro and the picturesque fishing village of Ferragudo, Hexagone is a bright, open, spacious restaurant that serves as the perfect background for the modern mediterranean cuisine that features on Hexagone's menu. In keeping with Chef Gilberto's philosophy of using quality fresh ingredients to produce healthy, tasty food, the dishes served at Hexagone allow the elements on the plate to be the star of the show, the true flavours shining through. Hexagone lunch menu features some fabulous salads - colourful, healthy and delicious and packed with locally sourced fresh ingredients. At dinner, choose from the à la carte menu or the Chef's Recommendation - a daily changing Hexagone creation. Our wine list is extensive, featuring excellent Algarve and Portuguese wines.

As previous regulars at Buzio, we were delighted to find the move here has early promise. The high standard we enjoyed at Buzio has been maintained and possibly improved upon. the surroundings are very comfortable, service was very good and the food was well presented, cooked to perfection and there was plenty of choice to suit all tastes. Well worth the short journey from Alvor.

Like many of the reviewers I was a fan of Gilberto's from his previous home in Buzio. Despite not having the breathtaking sunset views over Alvor, Haxagone is still a great experience.

Just outside Carvoeiro in an upmarket area the restaurant building is ideal with a separate bar area should you fancy an aperitif. As always the personal attention is top class, all staff are very knowledgeable and the food was excellent as expected. A unique dining experience.

The owner / chef Gilberto Gato recently moved from Buzio in Alvor having built an excellent reputation in that location. He has transferred all his skills to the new location and offers excellent cusine with friendly staff.

The atmosphere in the restaurant is excellent and the food of the highest standard.House specialiaities include; rack of lamb, for desert strawberry soup! The wine list is extensive and exciting

I would have not hesitation in recommending what is not just excellent food but a fantastic experience.

There's a new kid on the block and where Chef Peter used to reign in the Island Cafe, new Chef and owner Gilberto Gato from Buzio in Alvor has opened a really fine dining experience.
The lunchtime menu is varied and the salads are especially to be recommended.
In the evening we turn more to fine dining but this does not have to cost a fortune as there is a €21.00 menu and a €46.00 menu as well as the really good a la carte where I would highlight both of the prawn main courses as being very special.
The staff are first class - knowledgeable, efficient and friendly.There is plenty of parking around the restaurant. My only possible caveat would be that some of the wine prices are on the steep side but that still leaves a wide affordable selection.

Having been to Buzio on a number occasions and enjoyed both the food and the views, we decided to book the Hexagone to celebrate a family birthday as we hoped that he food would be every bit as special. The location is not as good as Buzio but there are distant views of the sea and the decor is tasteful. The taxi from Alvor was 20 euros each way.

I have to say that the food was even better than I remembered at Buzio - we all opted for the steak for our mains and they were absolutely delicious. We had a great evening and it was well worth the journey.

I wish Gilberto all the very best in his new venture - I'm sure it will be a great success and we will definitely return!
