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.

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

Everything is amazing and im not gonna waste my time talking about the food service etc. Everything was 5*. But its unacceptible in the 21th century to be forced to inhale other peoples smoke while you dine. They were right next to our table too close to a smoke free zone. The employee told me it was ok to smoke... More

Always wanted to try this restaurant and this time, finally did. Loved the atmosphere - old world charm and the food was amazing. Started off the afternoon with delicious appetizers (assortment of cheeses) and a fine bottle of red wine. Lunch was their famous steak dish with french fries garnished with pepper and garlic. Mouthwatering! Followed by a variety of... More
