About Us

Our Hosts

Welcome to Diplomático Restaurant Boutique & Bar, a culinary haven born from the shared dreams of two sisters, Sofia Mexia and Filipa Pereira. United by a passion for preserving Portuguese tradition while infusing it with a modern twist, they embarked on a journey to create a restaurant that pays homage to the special dishes of their new grandmothers.

Our Story

Sofia, brings her expertise in management to the table, with a deep-seated love for the kitchen that has always been reserved for welcoming friends into her home. On the other hand, Filipa, well-versed in the restaurant industry, boasts extensive experience managing various establishments in Vilamoura. Her loyal clientele follows her wherever she goes, a testament to her commitment to delivering exceptional dining experiences.

Bound by a shared appreciation for communication, refinement, and quality, the sisters carefully curated “Diplomático” to offer the best of traditional Portuguese cuisine. They prioritize the selection of top-notch products from local producers, ensuring that freshness and quality are never compromised.

Diplomático is a dream meant to be shared with all lovers of good food and impeccable service. Our space is designed to be comfortable, exuding a welcoming atmosphere for everyone who walks through our doors. We’ve seamlessly integrated three concepts into our establishment: the restaurant section, where we serve a curated selection of traditional Portuguese dishes; our “Boutique,” showcasing the finest items for sale to support local producers; and our Bar, a relaxed setting where you can savor a drink or indulge in a delectable starter from our menu.

At the heart of our kitchen is Chef Janine, a culinary maestro with boundless experience and an unwavering love for the art of cooking. We are confident that she will craft a gastronomic experience for our guests that will leave an indelible mark on their palates.

We invite you to visit Diplomático and witness firsthand that the kitchen is a place where love and quality converge. Join us on this culinary adventure, where every dish is a celebration of tradition, innovation, and, above all, love.
