In its last project he was awarded with several distinctions as a kitchen leader at Largo do Paço, amongst which 2 Soles from the Guia Repsol, 1 Michelin star, 1 “Garfo D’Ouro” from the Guia Boa Cama Boa Mesa, the 2014 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor and the title for Best European Restaurant by the The European 50 Best.com Guide.
