Azorean beef steak for lunch

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

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....
