Private Chef Experience

For small groups (4-10 guests) we offer lunches and dinners in a romantic atmosphere. If you are looking for a special location to have a lovely afternoon or evening we are the place to be!

When with us you can expect beautiful decorations, healthy vegetarian and local ingredients served with much love and attention.


When possible you will sit outside in the magical and shady garden or on the romantic courtyard. When the temperatures drop it is lovely inside our beautifully renovated Portuguese Quinta.


Michelle is also available to cook for you and your family and friends on location and is available to hire as a private chef during retreats. She specializes in balanced and healthy vegetarian and vegan cuisine.

Please contact Michelle for more information or to make an appointment to come and meet us at our creative space first 🤍

As Mentioned In:

Michelle was recently named one of 6 Vegetarian Restaurants in the East Algarve you should definitely visit. You can read the full article to the right. As it is written in Dutch, we wanted to share a translation for you: 

"Would you like a completely new experience at a special venue? Then go for Michelle's Private Chef Experience at O Tartufo in a beautiful rural setting near Moncarapacho.

For small groups, she prepares delicious healthy vegetarian private lunches and dinners with local and organic ingredients with great love and attention. With good weather you can eat outside in the magical and shady garden or on the romantic courtyard. If it is a bit cooler, you can sit comfortably inside by the fireplace in the attractively renovated old Portuguese Quinta.

My lunch consisted of a homemade sourdough bread with delicious parsley pesto and a tahini leek dip for starters. The main course was a chickpea pancake with many flavors such as tahini, parsley, red pepper, lemon, chia seeds, capers along with spiced rice and coleslaw.


For dessert, a delicious vegan chocolate cake with a red currant coulis and a glass of port."
