SURPRISING COMBINATIONS . ..

Avista Ásia is the new restaurant at Les Suites at The Cliff Bay [Madeira, Portugal].
The creations of Chef Rui Pinto offer a gastronomic experience that combines techniques and ingredients from Asian cuisine with produce from the island of Madeira.

Located on a headland near Pirates Bay in Funchal, the Avista and the Avista Asia share the same building in an exclusive establishment that offers a dream setting where sky and Atlantic ocean meet. Its proximity to the sea and unobstructed views give character and renown to the new PortoBay group restaurant.

THE CHEF

rui pinto

He thought about being a doctor or an engineer, but chose to follow his dream of being a cook.
Rui Pinto started out as an intern at The Cliff Bay hotel, during the years he studied at the Professional School of Hospitality and Tourism in Madeira. After completing the course, he returned to this hotel where he worked in the kitchen of the restaurant Il Gallo d’Oro (2 Michelin stars). A self-confessed Madeiran, despite being born in Coimbra, he decided to travel to the world.

He worked in Sydney-Australia-, in London and, for 4 years, at the Ocean restaurant (2 Michelin stars), in the Algarve.

 

The Covid-19 pandemic brought him back to Madeira to lead the Avista Asia team, where he combines all the experience acquired with the flavors of the island.

 

Rui Pinto leads the kitchen at Avista Asia daily, under the tutelage of Chefs Benoît Sithon (Il Gallo d’Oro - 2 Michelin stars) and João Luz (Avista).
