We stopped in on 12 Jan, 2015 for a late lunch/early dinner and we pleasantly surprised . The cuisine was superb and the service was the best on the island. The view is spectacular and we were not rushed. The owner even came out twice to greet us and ask if everything was fine. I highly recommend it and would... More

Upon a recommendation, we decided to try Alabote for lunch. We loved how cute the restaurant was from the outside, and it was just as stylish on the inside. We ordered the Casserole "Alabote" Style, which said it was big enough for two to share. It really would have fed four! It was basically a mixture of fish, prawns/shrimp, clams,... More

What a pleasure to open a menu in an Azorean restaurant and see some different creative dishes! They have the traditional ones -- bacalhau, bisteca etc if that's what you are in the mood for, and their swordfish was delicious. Do not miss the wreckfish in puff pastry, which was amazingly flavorful and rich and served with a delicious applesauce... More

We came in between lunch and dinner with 5 adults and one baby and they really went out of their way and made us have a great time. Perfect service and good food, a very good wine selection made this a perfect late lunch.

The fish stew was marvelous and there we sat overlooking waves crashing just down below us. The sun shone brightly on the patio and we felt very relaxed.

This was a passing by choice who reveals some of the good things of the restaurant. The great view over the ocean even with the windows with less visibility due to ocean humidity. The food seemed to be not fresh and this is why I am giving a 3.

During our tour of Sao Miguel after our visit to the liquor factory, our tour guide brought us here for a late lunch as we had mentioned we wanted to try the steak Azorean style. Food was very good and view was beautiful on a nice sunny day in September. I would not have chosen the steak with the fried... More

We stopped in Ribeira Grande to check out the liquor factory and happened to find this restaurant for lunch. The menu had options that we hadn't seen at other restaurants in the area. There were the traditional plates ... meat with fries and rice ... but we opted for the curry rice with vegetables and the grilled chicken. We started... More
