With over 20 years’ experience in the hospitality industry under his belt, Antonio Silva leads the team at the Blue Sea Restaurant, which he opened on the 21st June 2017.
Inspired by his Portuguese heritage and the flavours of his childhood island home of Madeira, Antonio seeks to bring the tastes of Portugal to the wider British public with a menu that showcases the very best Portuguese cookery has to offer.
Assisted by his team of expert chefs and experienced waiting staff, Antonio strives for excellence in providing his guests with the best food and customer service in an intimate, romantic environment that makes for the ultimate Portuguese fine dining experience.
Although Portugal relies on the Atlantic Ocean for sustenance due to its western geographical location on the Iberian Peninsula, its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea has had a profound influence on Portuguese cuisine, which is widely seen as being Mediterranean.
Of the appetizing array of options on offer at The Blue Sea Restaurant, many of them with a contemporary twist on traditional Portuguese fare, we suggest you try our Cataplana de Marisco, a shellfish stew served in a traditional Portuguese copper dish; our Filete de Peixe Espada Preto, a traditional black scabbard fish dish from the island of Madeira, or Camarão Tigre com Molho de Tomate Picante, juicy Extra Large Tiger Prawns in a flavoursome tomato and chilli sauce.
If meat is more your thing, why not go for Espetada de Lombo de Vaca Tradicional, tender, mouth-watering chunks of charcoal grilled beef served on a large skewer at your table?
Then choose from our fine selection of Portuguese red and white wines to add a final mellowing note to an unforgettable meal.
