Hans Neuner | Fine Wines & Food Fair


Hans Neuner

2 Michelin Stars

Ocean Restaurant

VILA VITA Parc, Portugal

Whilst Hans Neuner’s mantra of ‘keep it simple’ might initially seem at odds with the normal Michelin philosophy, his seasonally changing menu is technically perfect and exacting, and showcases a remarkable and incredibly distinctive light touch.

Austrian-born Hans worked at leading hotels such as the Carlton in St. Moritz and the Dorchester in London, together with Restaurant Tristan in Mallorca, before joining his mentor Karlheinz Hauser in Germany, first at the Hotel Adlon in Berlin and then at the Süllberg in Hamburg. With the aim of achieving recognition in his own right, Hans came to VILA VITA Parc in Portugal as Ocean’s Executive Chef in 2007, setting the restaurant on the path to Michelin success.

Ocean won its first Michelin star in November 2009, followed in November 2011 by its second star, which made it one of only two restaurants in Portugal to hold the honour of two Michelin stars.

Hans prides himself on creating light, modern, fresh and individual food with a local signature, placing a strong focus on fish and seafood from the Atlantic, and fruit, vegetables, meat, game and wines from the heartland of Portugal, as well as the resort´s own wines and organic produce from the Herdade dos Grous estate in the Alentejo, just over an hour´s drive from the resort.

Hans has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, travel, experimentation and innovation. The future looks exceedingly bright for this exceptional talent.
