Tough to find

Wife had the pork and I had the bonito. Both were quite nice. Service was good. You can't go wrong with the local wine. Let the staff recommend a pairing.

The food was really, really good. We both had meat and it was delicious, a single dish enough for a two people, complemented with dessert and the likes. Staff was pretty nice as was the restaurant itself. Not cheap, but not that expensive either. A fine restaurant for a casual meal, will go back again.

Unlike most of the other reviews, I was sorely disappointed. We had a reservation for four. Were seated immediately upon our arrival, but did not have a server visit for 20 minutes. And there were only 2 or 3 other tables occupied. Of the 20+ items on the menu, at least 6 or 7 of them were "out" or "take... More

It looked busy so we decided to try it. However the tables are organized in such a way that you feel too close to the other dinners and can't enjoy a more private experience. The food was just okay. It seemed that they were tryi to create a fine dining experience but fell short. We wouldn't go back as it... More

We went to dine there and in spite the fact that the service was quick, we do not recommend it, because: -you can smoke in this restaurant (they have a small official sign stating this at the entrance), so for non smokers as our selves is very bad (everybody in the same lounge); -the meat was overcooked and burned; -the...

If you want "real steak" that is cooked to order, this is definitely the place. Most places in the Azores overcook meat and when you say "medium" it's always well-done. This is a place known for meat quality and doing it right, so kudos for that! I deducted one star here because they allow smoking INSIDE!!! While I understand the... More

We had beef filet at this restaurant on March 27. The service was very attentive and the waiter adjusted the menu so that we could share one large filet between us. The beef was delicious with an excellent wine recommendation. A very worthwhile visit!

Was recommended to us as the best Azorean beef steak restaurant in the area and it lived up to its reputation. We suggest that you order the Alcides steak. It is tender and comes with fries. One 18 Euro portion feeds two.

Need to try the Azorean beef steaks? Try Alcides restaurant in Ponta Delgada. The service is perfect every time we go. They are very attentive to serving you quickly. We eat the best steak they have and never disappointed. It comes with fires and we always ask for a salad on the side. Have a dark red wine and just... More
