We headed here for our first lunch, and although the beer was cold(!) the food was disappointing. We were given cheese, olives and bread with our beer which we didn't ask for, and which was very nice but not cheap. The limpets were good too, but that was where it ended. The main courses of tuna and fish of the... More

Welcoming restaurant serving reasonable quality local food and wine at a good price. I had fish of the day, which was delicious but not too much fish once the bone was removed. Delicious coconut cake for dessert.

Well I should have trusted my instinct, but I didn't, to my regret. The menu outside featured a tourist menu (hint #1). A waiter came outside to entice us in (hint#2). He had a rather charming joking manner - bit of a nod and a wink, too friendly for my taste. (Hint # 3). But as I said I did... More

Nice surprise down one of the side streets not far from our hotel. We were welcomed with a small glass of fizz, the waiters were very helpful and spoke good English. Our meal was excellent, tuna and squid followed by pineapple cake and liqueur. Delicious.

My neighbors just returned from Sao Miguel and said this was their favorite restaurant in the area. We decided to go here for dinner tonight and knew why they loved it so much. The waiters were very friendly and super helpful. They made our dining experience awesome! We all had fresh fish that came with potatoes or rice with mixed... More

This restaurant was recommend to us by Ricardo from Amazing Tours. The decor and atmosphere were romantic, rustic, and the dining room dimly lit. We had a great vinho branco to complement our orders of swordfish and white beard fish. The mains were perfectly cooked and seasoned and even the sides were quite tasty. The bread and olives served at... More

Restaurant was in the center of Ponta Delgada and offers delicious Portuguese cuisine. The wait staff was friendly and everyone spoke English. Highly recommend the Portuguese steak and the grilled lapas.

We had dinner at this restaurant twice while we were in Ponta Delgada. The ambient is quiet and traditional rustic. Very nice and unassuming. We were four of us, 2 adults and 2 kids. We started with lapas grelhadas, which were amazing, well grilled, lots of garlic and wine taste. Love the starter cheese. My wife had the fish (bacalhau)... More
