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

Spent some time enjoying the waves. The food was really good. One of the menu had pictures which made it easier to decide what to eat. The staff could have been a bit friendlier but maybe it was the languish barrier. Good thing we didn't need any thing as we were left alone for a long time without any one... More

We just hit a few restaurants on a guide that we downloaded but there were either shut down or having really bad food and after 2 hours of searching around, we ended up here and I am so glad we came because this place has just totally great seafood. We were the last table at 3pm and there was only... More

Great food, try the Cataplana "Alabote". Great wine, try the White "Caiado". Great service. Prices affordable and the view is something out of this world.

To be fair we were part of a group of 28. The service was very slow; in fact the waiters didn't come any where near us until some of us got up and went to the bar to order drinks when the boss man sent the waiters across. The food can best be described as average although the cheese was... More

Spent an afternoon in Ribiera Grande, and walked by this place for lunch. Weren't quite hungry so we followed up the promenade and returned about 30 minutes later. There was a tour group hogging the restaurant, so they warned us it'd be about 20 min for a table. We hung out and then were seated. Ordered the following: Grilled Limpits:... More
