great lunch

Very good lunch, at a more than decent price. I was a bit worried when we were served Sao Jorge cheese and fresh cheese with confite pineapple and pepper puree, the large glass of very good red wine (without having seen a wine list) and I was ready to pay a higher price than usual. Not at all... read more

Excellent restaurant! Great view on the sea is just an extra addition to the delicious food. I had for lunch octopus "Alabote" style - just fabulous, accompanied by a glass of great Portuguese wine. A restaurant not to miss during visit in Ribeira Grande.

We went for dinner; sat on the terrace, great sunset view across the bay. Great service, nothing too much trouble. We asked for an octopus salad starter and chef was quite happy to come up with something really special despite it not being on the menu. Mains were superb and desserts, also off menu, amazing. During the evening the restaurant... More

We took 14 days to tour the island and found Alabote half way through. It was the best decision we made! Great sunset views over the ocean and mountain tops as well as great food. If the waiter suggests a meal, take it! He told us to get the cod dinner with chorizo and bacon - delicious! Service did take... More

We got a bit tired of the Terra Nostra Garden Hotel Restaurant after a few days, so we decided to try somewhere else. After some research on a restaurant with a decent setting and table cloth, this one came on top of our list within a reasonable driving distance from Furnas where we stayed. We were not disappointed. It is... More

After going back to Sao Miguel for 11 years, my family and I always make a point to head over to Alabote during our vacation at least once if not more then that. Its in an ideal location and has the most amazing views of the ocean. I love sitting on their patio for drinks and some appetizers and of... More

Its a wonderful place to be with friends and family! The food is good, the service is great! Everybody is professional and you will receive a warming greeting. You will have a beautiful view to the ocean that will turn your meal even better and more delicious.

Alabote is a very nice place to have dinner and enjoy the Sunset. I recommend the Beef or "Cataplana".
