...but the steak is incredible! Ask for half portion but you will enjoy definitely! The house was renovated some years ago and the waiters are very friendly and efficient. Not cheap but at lunch they have specially lunch dishes with cheap prices. The chocolate mousse is great.

The meat is great but expensive (you can find the same quality steak in Aliança Restaurant a few meters away). The wine list is short. The service is bad: they uncork an expensive 25 EUR bottle of wine NOT in front of you but somewhere at the bar. Totally unacceptable for a restaurant that thinks to be in the upper... More

This place was recommended by our tour guide. He also mentioned that restaurants in Sao Miguel are categorized in specializing seafood or meat. He doesn't recommend ordering fish in a meat restaurant. We ordered their beef steak and black pork steak. Both of them are high quality and grilled to perfect. The waiter brought us their cheese plate which was... More

Alcides restaurant belongs to the hotel with the same name. It is a family run restaurant that serves good traditional food. The price-quality ratio is good. It is advisable to make reservation for dinner or get there early.

We heard something about the stakes and went to the dinner there. Everything was just perfect, if you are at Azores you need to try the best stake in the city.

My husband and I had the fish, I had mahi Mahi which was very disappointing and he had swordfish which he liked. I am Portuguese and thought it was totally unrepresentative of good typical Portuguese cooking. Wine recommendations where good and we had pineapple for dessert excellent

Just like the namesake hotel where we stayed, the restaurant's staff is incredibly friendly. While not cheap, the price is fair and similar to other restaurants in town. The food is awesome. Very good quality, indeed. The place itself, part of the hotel, is quite comfortable.

Locals have known for many years how good the steak is; traditionally, it's made of matured beef, a practice that relates to the original owner, a gentleman called Alcides. Along the years a number of things have changed but, nothing drastic, just to comply with current law demands and, generally speaking it's been for the better. The restaurant is famous... More

Nice interior, friendly staff, that's really quick (at least in my case). I had food served within maximum ten minutes, and it was heaven! I had beef de Alcides, which was really tender and juicy, grilled just as i asked for. Interesting addition was salted red pepper, which alone wouldn't be edible, but was a good with the steak.

The atmosphere is cozy and the service is good. We shared a tenderloin steak for two that was delicious. Restaurant is part of the hotel and directly across from the Casa Hinze Ribeiro Boutique hotel.
