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

After that they forgot the fries which were supposed to come along with... More

Avoid this place. Everybody is smoking at their table. After our average meal we were charged 8 euro for 1 tiny slice of cheese, 2 euro for 2 slices of bread and also 1 drink was accidently charged 50 cents extra. This was corrected thanks to my Portuguese wife and it made 10 euros difference on bill.

We first went to this restaurant 2 years ago. The steak then was excellent and it was on my "must do" list for our second trip. On our first night we went back there and were not disappointed. I had a starter of the mixed sausages (chorizo and blood sausage). Well cooked and good value. Main course was the steak.... More

We went here after a recommendation from our guide on a jeep tour. Very good advice - meal was excellent and it too expensive either. Also is one of the establishments that seems to have mastered the concept of delivering the meals all at the same time!!

We went there recommended by another restaurant that was full, which seems to be normal. Reservations are always good. The place itself is nice, the food is good. We liked the small cheese table. The sirloin was also very good, with flambe pineapple. Cheesecake to finish was a good choice. Extremely nice and helpful staff! It got slightly hot inside... More

This restaurant it's a mandatory to visit in S. Miguel. It has confirmed that Açores is a beautiful place where we can eat good steaks. The place is nice, the mistress are kind, the service was fast and a very decent price.
