Restaurante Bon Bon
Rui Silvestre was born in Valongo, in the north of Portugal, but has been living in the Algarve since he was 10 years old. He worked at French, Swiss and Hungarian restaurants for 7 years, highlighting Christophe Bacquié's restaurant. He's been at the Bon Bon since 2014, a 25 year old restaurant located at Carvoeiro in the Algarve, where he attained his first Michelin Star in 2015.
Although most of his career has been spent abroad, with some experience alongside the Michelin Stared Ferme Saint Simion and Christophe Bacquié, both French, and the Costes in Budapest, lead by Miguel Rocha Vieira. Rui Silvestre's cooking honors the national flavors, inspired by the natural ingredients closer to him: the Algarve's fish and seafood.
