Nine new Michelin Stars in Portugal in 2017 for 23 total

Portugal has nine new Michelin Stars for 2017, almost doubling the 14 from 2016. Two eateries, the Yeatman in Porto and Il Gallo d’ora on Madeira, got a second Michelin stars from the famous red dining guide.  

The two star restaurants include Belcanto in Lisbon and Vila Joya in the Algarve. New single stars went to the Casa de Chá da Boa Nova and Antique in Porto, Loco in Lisbon,  LAB in Sintra and  William in Funchal.  L’And in the Alentejo rejoins the list.  

Michelin stars are a rating system used by the red Michelin Guide for restaurants on quality. The guide was developed in 1900 to help French drivers. According to the Guide, one star signifies "a very good restaurant", two stars are "excellent cooking that is worth a detour." The listings restaurants are updated once a year.
