You have to order for two minimum. The stew was slightly sulphurous in taste which is only to... read more

Although we intended to try several different restaurants in Furnas, we could not resist going back to Tony's for a cozido. It was incredibly delicious. Best of all was our waiter who took terrific care of us both nights! Cheers!

Also in our travel guide it was said we had to try the cozido (the local dish). That morning we visited the warm water "pools" where the cozido's are being prepared. We arrived there, but they were still closed for diner, so we decided to come later. As we came back, in the restaurant were a few other people. Off... More

For all of you, who don't know, the regional stewed, its a regional dish where several sorts of meat and vegetables with potatoes, sweet potatoes and also yam, are boiled in a hole on the ground and using the geothermal heat for cooking. This restaurant its a nice place to try the regional dish.

We made a bee line for Tony's after checking into our hotel in Furnas. We were very hungry, and asked if we could get the Cozida for 2 despite not having reserved. Luckily they had extra. It came out practically right away. There is probably enough food for 3 or 4 people on the plate. I liked some parts more... More

During our week in Furnas,We had two great meals at Tony's. The first dish was the cozidos: a wonderful, fragrant mixture of meats and vegetables cooked underground by the Lake. ( Need to order at least 12 hours before) Tony explained the method and the ingredients very well, and .suggested a good local wine to accompany. The second time we... More

Eating a meal cooked in a volcano is a unique dining experience. We loved watching our food come out of a volcano and then going to the restaurant to eat it. Portion sizes are generous.

After a day of golfing and a soak in the mineral springs, we went here for the highly rated lunch which is cooked in the ground. We were very surprised at how tasty the food was - VERY large portions....and the rice is awesome too. Sat on the balcony and watched the world go by below

We found the food and service at Tony's to be very average, and average is good. Most of the patrons were locals, so we felt confident that the food would be good and we were getting a real taste of life in Furnas.
