After searching many restaurants in the area, the server, Jessica, immediately understood my celiac, gluten-free needs with outstanding ability. Her service was kind and interactive. My meal was delicious as well as my partners, that did not require gluten free. The atmosphere was very comfortable and we would return again.

I found this restaurant while strolling from my studio towards the harbor and liked the menu and ambiance. I ordered grilled swordfish with 2 kinds of salads and all was fresh and delicious. The server was friendly and her service excellent. Inside they have a little cave-like dining area which was perfect for me to sit as a solo traveler.

O Giro is a quaint little cafe/restaurant filled with locals. The service was fabulous and the drink selection great as well. We ordered the Garlic Prawns, Mussels and Garlic Bread...everything was delicious. The garlic bread made with real garlic and fresh local cheese. The mussels and prawns were a touch overdone but we still enjoyed them. Afterwards we were given... More

Was looking for somewhere convenient to the Hotel Talisman where I was staying. Menu looked ok so gave it a go. Not sure about during the daylight but much nicer inside than it seems from the outside at night. Service good, food good, complimentary drink afterwards. Really can't complain.

Stopped in today for the buffet. Great selection of fish, octopus, pork, chicken, salads and other potato/ plantain. Lots of locals eating here so a good sign. 7€ per person

We were staying in Ponta Delgada for just a few days and we discovered this restaurant on our walk around the back streets of Ponta Delgada. As it was about lunch time, and we did not like the food at our hotel, we decided to try it as it has 2 veal dishes on the menu. Wonderful, a great find... More

This restaurant was located right around the corner from our hotel. The food and drink was delicious, and was filled with locals. They offered indoor and outdoor dining.

It's a very nice restaurant with very good food. We ate lipets and fried squits and it was both great.

Stumbled on this restaurant on our way from our hotel to the marina restaurants, but decided not to go any further - so glad we stopped there as we were impressed with our meal. It's on a quiet pedestrian side street & near to a few other restaurants, so there was no road noise & had a good atmosphere. We... More
