The décor of the restaurant is beautiful but it is the food that is the draw. We tried the black sausage and pineapple for a starter. The grilled swordfish was cooked just right. Absolutely delicious.

We had an eight hour wait between flights in Ponta Delagada on our way home to Toronto, and stumbled onto this place while we walked around. That good luck made the long pause worth it! We have eaten at restaurants fancy and plain on four continents but this meal is one we will remember and talk about for a long... More

It was our first night in Ponta Delgata. We were extremely exhausted from travel and decided to keep it simple and eat at the hotel. Good decision! The steak was great, the fish was good, and the collection of vegetables on the table was immense (the greens & cabbage delighted our southern taste buds). Alcides has a wonderful wine selection....

This was my second trip to Ponta Delgada but did not get to this steakhouse on my first trip . I was determined to get there this time. I was very happy with the meal, ambiance and location. I had the 1/2 portion of steak with french fries/chips - delish!! I have read comments from other diners regarding having to... More

This is the place to go if you like a good steak with lots of garlic on it. They also serve other dishes, that others in our group thought were very good. You can get a bottle of local wine for around ten euros. Very good desserts as well.

We had a dinner on a rainy evening and expected original and well cooked fish from the Azores. We have been rather disappointed. The fish of the day was not very tasty, vegetables - mostly broccoli - were cooked without imagination and needed much salt to get any taste. Service was slow and not enthusiastic. All in all, a disappointing... More

We had the regional cheeses, forkhead fish and the beef stew. Large portions and very well prepared. However we were to full for dessert. The prices where very fair. We will definately be back.

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
