Consistent, delicious and always perfect.

The best place in São Miguel Island to try seasonal products coocked with passion. Great service and delicious food. The "Bistrô Menu" is always a surprise and never disappoints.

Very service oriented. The food was very good. Very elegant place on the marina. A little expensive but worth it.

This eating establishment is on two levels and difficult to find but well worth seeking out. It is tucked away under the amphitheatre on the sea front close to the cruise ship terminal. It is a hospitality training school both for waiting staff and chefs. My wife and I eat there on three occasions. Twice in the restaurant in the... More

Perhaps it is just me but I don't appreciate witnessing arrogant waitresses with the personality of dishrags reprimanding the busboys in training in front of me even if I don't understand the language, I get it.

Interesting combination of flavor palates: creamy watercress soup with mackerel tempura, pan seared blue mouth rockfish, Sao Jorge cheese ice cream, local roasted beef roll and lemon crime brûlée. Outstanding regional Portuguese wine. Nice ambience.

1) The service: Considering the staff are all young people still being trained, the service is good. They are polite, very good at English and try hard to make you feel welcome. Sometimes the wording may seem a little unrefined, which you can easily chalk up to a certain lack of experience. We also got a free starter. So overall,... More

This restaurant is a school restaurant and, therefore, I always expect a better service. However, everytime I go there, I always end up being disappointed: there`s always something in the menu that it isn`t available; very slow service; courtesy isn`t always there ant often the reservation made by telephone is lost...

This restaurant is a culinary school by day. We had the culinary tour which was a multi-course meal paired with the BEST wines we had the entire week. Just the wine was worth the $65 price as we each had 2 glasses of red and 2 of white and they were superb. The meal was most interesting as it was... More
