Ver nice restaurant, steak was amazing!

We had lunch at Alcides while on the Island, and it was so good! It was very filling as the portions are large and very satisfying. Started with the tomatoe soup which was literally alphabet soup, but the the yummy breads and cheeses and steak and fries totally made up for it!

As with most restaurants here, very simple, no frills. Meat here is some of the best on the Island. Steak was very good as was the lamb. Selection of local cheeses to start was excellent.

The food is excellent, the steak, we just found better in the "Associação Agricola de São Miguel". The desserts, fantastics, with emphasis on the white lemon pie! An experience we wanted to repeat in our stay in São Miguel, because the menu is attractive (we wanted to try the fried Morea on another visit). Unfortunately unlike most restaurants in the... More

We read the menu outside of the restaurant and decided to try it. One attempt - fully booked. Second attempt - we made a reservation for our last night at ponta Delgada. Yay! I always try to be reasonable, but... I ordered eel without potato and with the salad. It came with the the potato and no salad- well I... More

Maybe it was the wine (delicious inexpensive douro red), maybe it was the meal (best steak I've had ever) or maybe it was my new wife sitting next to me, but this was one of the best meals we've ever had. And to be honest....it was the food and wine that made it so. Staff is fine, ambiance is fine.... More

Best steak I had in Sao Miguel.I ordered the traditional Azorean steak and it was the best I have ever had. The meat was very tender and flavorful. It tasted as if it were aged beef I don't know maybe it was. I am not sure how anything else tastes on their menu but they have perfected this dish. Do... More
