Quinta do Lago, the exclusive heritage resort in the Algarve, has just launched brand new steak restaurant, Bovino Steakhouse - it blends the best in modern Steakhouse with contemporary urban design.
The latest addition to the resort’s already thriving gastro scene offers the best in modern steakhouse dining complemented by contemporary urban design from renowned international designer, Lázaro Roza-Violán.
The chic interiors provide an interesting juxtaposition to the traditional setting - a traditional 200 year old Algarve farmhouse draped in Bougainvillea and enjoying a romantic hilltop setting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
This contemporary space is home to both Bovino Steakhouse and neighbouring restaurant, Casa Velha, in addition to a pool, lounge and bar with stunning views over the lake. Making the most of the typical architecture, the new design by Lázaro is inspired by the use of traditional materials such as coloured tiles and Portuguese ‘calçada’ flooring combined with a contemporary urban approach reflective of styles found in New York’s Manhattan and London’s Shoreditch.
Fine quality meat is at the heart of Bovino’s philosophy, serving up the most tender of steaks in a stunning environment to create the most exclusive steakhouse experience of anywhere in the Algarve. The meat producers, who supply over 100 Michelin starred restaurants throughout Europe, practice a unique method known as Ultra-Tender, to deliver a unique consistency in the tenderness of the beef. It is then dry-aged to enhance flavour and taste.
The latest addition to the gastronomic offering at Quinta do Lago not only marks the continued success of the resort, deemed a benchmark residential development for over 40 years, but also continue to cement Portugal as a European culinary hotspot.
John Dwyer, CEO of Quinta do Lago comments: “This is an exciting summer for Quinta do Lago and will bring our restaurant total from seven to nine. Portugal and the Algarve are increasingly being recognised for their gastronomic excellence and at Quinta do Lago we are at the forefront of this movement. Thanks to our continued programme of investment and strategy for growth we continue to reinvest in the resort allowing us to provide both residents and visitors with the highest quality of facilities, services and of course restaurants offering cuisine from around the world to reflect our global audience. We are delighted to have partnered with a designer as renowned and admired as Lázaro Roza-Violán for this project and the space he has created is truly stunning, breathing a contemporary outlook into a very traditional setting.”
