Knowing that cozido is gastronomically nothing much different than a New England boiled dinner, we still had to try it at Tony's since we wanted the experience of knowing that we had eaten a meal cooked in a fumarole. If you like New England boiled dinner, then you'll like the food. It is bland and 'overcooked' but that is what... More

We wanted to try traditional cozido after watching it being pulled out of the ground in Furnas. There portions were huge! It has large pieces of pork, chicken, beef and blood sausage over rice it was tender and very good. My husband had fried steak which was terrible. There cheese appetizer was wonderful but the wait staff isn't great. Actually... More

Tony's serves authentic stew cooked in the nearby volcanic hot springs (cozido). Cozido consists of a variety of meats, sausages and vegetables. These are baked in crock pots buried in the volcanic mud for about 8 hrs. Generous portion for two is 19euros, good selection of reasonably priced wines.

We were not with a guide group...and just stoped in for lunch...it was alright...the food was pretty bland (maybe they do that on purpose so you can taste the flavor?). Got a portion for one and a salad and that was more than enough for my wife and I....a little pricey but they do have to cook the food in... More

On our trip to Sao Miguel we had to try to the cozida while we were there! Our tour guide, Roberto, made reservations here as it is where he and his wife had their wedding reception many years ago! We had the meat cozida and it was very good...veggies cooked nicely and many kinds of meat. They had us order... More

This is a bustling, fun restaurant. Don't think pretentious. We had the Cozida that we helped pull out of the of the hot springs ourselves (as arranged by our guide.) The food was hearty and flavorful - not complex, but very tasty. We thought this was very fun - and very different. It may be a bit "touristy", but I... More

Just what the local eats, Bifana and such, you will get it from them. It is what it is, not top notch I am not sure if I would starve or eat from them. There are more decent place for local food there if you want the same thing.

Ate here for lunch once and dinner once. We were confused about the layouts. We went upstairs to wait for a table, then were sent back downstairs. Second time we went downstairs and were sent up. Don't think we'll ever understand this dynamic, but whatever...the food was great. For lunch one day, I got the barbecued squid, wife had the... More

We went there following a recommendation from our hotel and we were really happy we followed it. Service was nice, warm, homey. Naturally, we ordered the cozido and was super happy and filled up! Great value for money, delicious, really a nice experience. If in Furnas, dine here to have a taste of the food cooked using the thermal springs.

The food had been cooked in the nearby thermal springs in huge containers. When the dish arrived for 4 people we were amazed at the amount on the platter. The wine flowed freely and the service was fast, friendly and efficient. And all for €15
