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.

“Hexagone delivers on excellence!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

We had an evening meal at Hexagone and it was after sunset so are not able to judge the view but the restaurant was situated high in the hillside. On arrival the ambiance was luxurious and the bar very enticing. We sat at our table and immediately offered a cocktail and an appetiser to get the taste buds expectant of things to come. Six at our table and all were treated to a meal full of superbly blended flavours. Gilberto when asked gave us his advice on wine. Gilberto's waiters were quiet and efficient. We are dining at Hexagone this evening and have no doubt we will receive another extraordinary meal.

“The best restaurant in Carvoeiro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

What can I say? Elegant table settings, beautiful surroundings, mouth watering menu and excellent service.
We arrived without a reservation and were warmly welcomed by the maître d and seated at a beautiful table on the terrace. The menu boasts crab meat and avocado salad, Roast duck with poached pear and balsamic shallots, Mushroom risotto, the choices are too many to mention but the chef's recommendations change daily and include various freshly caught fish. The children's menu is far removed from the usual offerings of nuggets and chips. My two ate the chicken in a mustard sauce (we were reassured, correctly that children love this sauce) with rice and fresh vegetables and a smoked salmon salad with fresh fruit.
Hot bread arrived quickly to the table and all 4 of us, little people included, received a delicious amuse bouche. This is a top end restaurant that really knows how to treat children. The excellent sommelier was on hand to give advice regarding the Portuguese wines on offer.
I had the duck as a main- it was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth, I can honestly say that the poached pear and balsamic shallots were the perfect accompaniment. I would rate it as one of my best dining experiences.
The staff here are professionals and extremely helpful.
Last recommendation- don't leave without trying the strawberry soup- Devine!!!!!

“Great experience! Gran Experiencia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

In our first visit to Algarve we hace found a lot of bulk (really poor) restaurants. Fortunately for the last dinner of this trip we were told about Hexagone. It is a really good experience we will repeat for sure in the future (following what we have seen and tasted, this restaurant is a must in Algarve and really worth the visit). The price is not cheap for Algarve (45-55 euros each), but it is much cheaper than its equivalents in Spain, for example).

Después de conocer muchos restaurantes mediocres en nuestro primer viaje al Algarve, hemos tenido la suerte de visitar Hexagone. Se trata de una experiencia culinaria muy buena (atención y servicio, sumiller, comida -variedad y calidad de platos-, comida para niños, etc.). Sinceramente, merece la pena la visita, aunque esta en las afueras de Carvoeiro y parece estar a desmano). Muy recomendable!

“Fabulous restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

Just a few minutes stroll from our villa this was a lovely restaurant both for lunch and dinner with very different menus for each. Came here several times and every time the meal was great. From the different daily cocktail to the range of seafood and meat dishes, none disappointed. The owner Gilberto and his merry band of waiters were always attentive and recommended some excellent wines. I had the rack of lamb twice as it was outstandingly delicious, probably the best I have ever had.
Looking forward to hopefully coming back here soon.

“Michelin star standard without the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

I have dined in alot michelin starred locations and this is every bit as good. Found this place almost by accident and sat down 15 mins before open time. Was pleased to see 5 or 6 chefs around one of the tables planning out the evening prior to open, it was a very good sign!. You can either order al a carte from the menu, have the daily set 3 course menu or a more expensive tasting 5 course menu. Everything we tried over the couse of two visits was outstanding and special mention should be made to how friendly the staff were. Worth going out of your way for trust me!
