Each month we select the best products, and we design a menu combining our latest creations with dishes that in previous stages of Sergi's career have enjoyed the complicity of our guests...

The new proposals provide a renewed freshness to the menu and the recovered dishes provide strength, consistency and balance and are designed to make diners complicit in our kitchen.

The Concept

The idea of LAB by Sergi Arola was a natural progression, after 7 years of the Chef’s presence at Penha Longa Resort, with the successful Arola Restaurant and his worldwide experience.

The restaurant is inspired by the fusion of fresh ingredients, highly-innovative and emotional gastronomy, where each single component is refined to provide a unique and memorable culinary experience.

The Chef

Sergi Arola’s early career was guided by his mentor and renowned Chef - Ferrán Adriá - who won the title of Best Chef in the world for his restaurant "el Bulli", a title it maintained for five consecutive years. Our Chef also gained inspiration from Pierre Gagnaire and was greatly influenced by other well-known chefs such as Raymond Blanc and Jacques Maximin. Like other professionals, Sergi’s passion for food was fostered during his childhood, in his grandfather’s kitchen. At the young age of twelve, he had already discovered his vocation.

Since LAB’s launch, Sergi Arola has relied on the unique talent and creativity of his righthand man Vlademir Veiga. As Head Chef at LAB, Vlademir is in charge of the whole kitchen, ensuring Sergi’s standards are kept and showcasing fine dining at its very best.
