Went to this restaurant because of the good reviews on trip advisor. Ordered soups and vegetable/cheese pastries with sides of vegetables as main courses. Both soups and both main dishes were luke warm/cold. The vegetables were burnt, soggy (overcooked), and were not flavorful. We mentioned this to the staff and they were unresponsive. Overall, poor food and service at a... More

We popped in for lunch, and ordered a salad and chicken sandwiches. The salads were great - fresh, light, and not overly covered in sauce. The sandwiches were on fresh buns, and were perfect for a mid-day meal.

Bakery/cafe/restaurant on streetfront at Sol Mar mall, across from harbour. Had the Natas dos Acores, fabulous little tarts filled with passionfruit and pineapple flavoured pastry cream. Nice spot to sit and people watch, drink a coffee and have a pastry.

This restaurant is part of the Hotel do Colegio, once a grand mansion and beautifully preserved. The restaurant is in the modern part of the hotel and the food is seriously good. My wife and I had the fish served over local vegetables. Plus dessert and a bottle of wine it was only EUR10 more than a rather indifferent buffet... More

The food is ok, but nothing fancy. The staff is friendly. Sometimes the service is very slow. The menu has azorean, italian and japonese food.

Thank you for your review! Since you mention the diversity of the dishes, you're probably refering to the restaurant located at Infante D. Henrique Avenue. We hope to receive you as well at Carvalho Araújo Street, near Hotel do Colégio. Best regards, Colmeia Staff More

I had a delicious squid ink pasta with shrimp and smoked salmon that was one of the most delicious things I ate all week.

This was our best dinner in Ponta Delgada! A hidden gem located in the Colégio Hotel. We had grouper and salmon which was prepared to perfection and served over local vegetables.
