I ate the famous Alcides steak and I just don't get it why it is famous. It was hard to chew and I think it was cut wrongly. The side dish was nothing special either. The bread and butter which they bring without asking are not complimentary, so you can send them back if you don't want them. I don't... More

We were excited about the steak at this place, having been recommended by our hotel as well as seeing good reviews. To be honest, we were a bit disappointed, it was a good size portion of steak served in tasty but oily gravy but was not cooked as we'd requested, and the chips were average. The desert was also not... More

Having eaten in a number of places in the Azores we are confident that this is the best place that we have eaten in so far. The steak was superb – it was very large, cooked exactly as I wanted it and the meat was so tender. My wife also had a very large piece of excellent cooked tuna. The... More

Maybe its because I ordered seafood instead of their famed beef? Our last dinner on Sao Miguel was at this restaurant. We were the second table to arrive after opening. Staff basically threw food down infront of us, cut us off while we were ordering, it was like they were running around with their heads cut off..... but they still... More

I'd strongly recommend this restaurant for their meat! The meat was cooked perfectly and served simply with chips and salad so the main focus remains on the steak. The wine recommended by the waiter was great and complimented the meat quite well. We started with some limpets and some Vinho Verde which were delicious too. The only down was the... More

On a 1st night arrival, we were suggested excellent local (Pico) wine and dishes. Steak was excellent as was fish dinner. Staff very helpful. Go earlier as they can run out of dishes, indicating that dishes are always fresh

Good service and nice ambience located in downtown Ponta Delgada. Azorian meat is very tasty, so ask for the steak that comes with "pimenta da terra" - a hot pepper used alot in the Azores and a side of fries. While you wait for your meal ask for a choice of local cheeses and marmelade. Enjoy!

We stayed at the Alcides hotel and, as we arrived pretty late from the airport, we decided to give it a go. Even if we didn't have a reservation and it was a wee bit late, they didn't have a problem to immediately find us a table (the restaurant was pretty busy that evening). They brought us some local bread... More
