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

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

Absolutely wonderful mouthwatering steaks, served in a nice atmosphere. Not to be missed. Situated in the town centre.
