We found this restaurant as we were strolling about. There were a number of locals eating there which seemed like a good sign. We sat outside and had a very pleasant lunch. The menu offered a big variety of food options. The service was a bit on the slow side but very friendly. Four of us had lunch for 48... More

We were looking at a good place for dinner and found ogiro. Portions of pasta were huge and very tastefull. The chocolate cake was probably best I've ever eaten before. Service was ok and it was nice to have opportunity to have dinner outdoors. Prices were reasonable.

The reason why I registered on TripAdvisor just now is to help people find this place. We have spent two weeks on the Asores Islands, and ended having dinner at Giro around 7 times. We tried several other places, none of them was even close. Friendly and attentive staff, surprisingly good quality food, moderate prices. The pictures on their menu... More

Stumbled across this small bar by accident & sat outside for a beer. Decided to eat and the food was utterly delicious. Apparently the 'special menu' which includes local dishes is prepared on different days so ask ahead if you're looking for a particular Sao Miguel dish. Came back with family for a second time and again, the food was... More

Waited an hour for food. Selection was great but both of our choices were mediocre. Had the tuna which was good but the sides were very overlooked.

Nice place, excellent food, very friendly staff, and good prices. We liked it so much, we returned a second time for supper. What I think makes this restaurant over the top, is that most restaurants in Ponta Delgata, will bring you bread (without asking for it), then charge you. Some will even bring cheese (without asking), then charge you too.... More

Great start at our last night, but before our main course arrived, a party of Brazilians did, with a very noisy kid, who scared guests out if the restaurant. Waiters warned arriving guests if the noise, but apparently did nothing to stop it. Even though we were sitting outside, we went as soon as we could. Had a local aperitif... More

I was quite dissappointed when I went here. Very poor vegetarian choices and the food I had was average at best for an Azorian expensive restaurant. Not bad but there are better places to eat in Ponta Delgada

We decided to stroll before dinner and find something new and unique and couldn't have been more pleased that we stumbled upon O Giro! Menu posted outside, and pictures go with each dish to assist in ordering. We decided to stay and enjoyed two wonderful entrees, several glasses of wine and dessert for less than Euro 50. A good bargain,... More
