Alabote easily had the best view of any restaurant I went to over the course of my vacation. It has an excellent patio area overlooking the ocean, and if that's not for you, sit inside where it has wall to wall windows with the same view. The service was extremely friendly and food came out promptly. Everyone out of our... More

We had lunch on the terrasse of the Alibote while visiting Ribeiro Grande on June 29. Although it was late (after 2pm) we were received with curtesy. We were facing the sea, on the terrasse. Great service and Great food for the Price. Only négative point: I was expecting a bit of originality in the recipes that are somewhat the... More

Excellent food, great service and enjoyed by all. My family, 3 children, my parents and our niece celebrated our 15th anniversary at Alabote and had a very memorable experience. The view and ambience overlooking the ocean and Ribeira Grande beach is truly one of the best settings for a meal on the island. Five in our party enjoyed seafood and... More

We had very good lunch! Sea food is recommended. Staff is nice, the restaurant is new and very well located with a sea view. We'd recommend it!

The view from the restaurant is amazing, and the fish is really great. An extra plus for the pinapplejam and cheese for starter. But I don't recomend choosing a meat-dish, since the standard of their fish-dishes is so much better!

We first had lunch here that was good and good coffee. It's allowed to smoke in the bar but that doesn't bother me, there is free wifi that's handy. But the second time a few days later we had diner on the terrace overlooking the sea, so the location is nice and easy to find at the end of the... More

This restaurant was located in Ribeira Grande, across from the ocean. We had lunch here and enjoyed a nice meal with our family. We ordered some appetizers for our kids and meals for ourselves which was delicious. The manager was very interested to make sure we were happy with our dinner. A large group came in just as we were... More

After a busy morning of hiking and driving we turned up for a late lunch on a week day. The waiter was efficient and spoke good English. We ordered a fish casserole alabote style (sorry can't remember exact name) for 2. It was of a very generous size, had all types of fish in it and could easily feed a... More

That's what I call excelent! This time, I ate FOLHADO DE CHERNE each bite took me to heaven, it's absolutly divine. I just wanted to double check to give my opinion, since on my last vacation, I had dinner there, and I ate PEIXE NA TELHA, that made me cry, there's no words to explain the pleasure while eating that...
