Great traditional cuiseine with a twist

Went here with my husband and daughters and really enjoyed the ambiance and food. Well presented, but we found it a bit expensive.

We really enjoyed our meal here. We were there early, so we actually had the entire dining area to ourselves. The menu was quite varied, with lots of different options. I had the curried beef, and my husband had black pepper steak. We both really enjoyed our meals, and the servings were a great size. We tried the pineapple for... More

We tried this as a change from A Colmeia during a short visit to Ponta Delgada. Mistake for us. Not really their fault as we had to share with a large and very noisy north American celebration party. No objection to that - just didn't want to have to shout in a rather stuffy upstairs room with bad accoustics. Service... More

The restaurant meets the highest standards of any capital of Europe. The menu lists meals made of seasonal local ingredients. The meals are based on traditional Azorean recipes, yet made with the latest gastronomic technologies, and served in up-to-date way. The fish they serve is always fresh, they don't use frozen ingredients. The staff is very polite, and well-prepared. The... More

My advise would be to take the octopus. This dish is delicious, very well cooked and traditional. Price is average but well worth paying.

We thought we would try the new restaurant in Ponta Delgada. The worst mistake! The whole experience was a nightmare. From the horrible decor ( the... More
