The food here is just delicious!🍸👏 Combined with some artistic touches, I would say this is gourmet food! Try the codfish and fish of the day - lots of different flavours elegantly presented on a plate. Compared to other famous restaurants, the food here is definitely better in terms of presentation, taste, atmosphere, and most importantly the affordability of the... More

I found A Colmeia to be a nice modern quiet restaurant with good efficient service. Started with a great Margarita, and although I was disappointed they were out of my first 2 fish choices, the fresh fish of the day which I settled for, did not disappoint! It was grilled perfectly – very tasty - and served on a bed... More

Went to this restaurant because of the good reviews on trip advisor. Ordered soups and vegetable/cheese pastries with sides of vegetables as main courses. Both soups and both main dishes were luke warm/cold. The vegetables were burnt, soggy (overcooked), and were not flavorful. We mentioned this to the staff and they were unresponsive. Overall, poor food and service at a... More

We popped in for lunch, and ordered a salad and chicken sandwiches. The salads were great - fresh, light, and not overly covered in sauce. The sandwiches were on fresh buns, and were perfect for a mid-day meal.

Bakery/cafe/restaurant on streetfront at Sol Mar mall, across from harbour. Had the Natas dos Acores, fabulous little tarts filled with passionfruit and pineapple flavoured pastry cream. Nice spot to sit and people watch, drink a coffee and have a pastry.

This restaurant is part of the Hotel do Colegio, once a grand mansion and beautifully preserved. The restaurant is in the modern part of the hotel and the food is seriously good. My wife and I had the fish served over local vegetables. Plus dessert and a bottle of wine it was only EUR10 more than a rather indifferent buffet... More

The restaurant was very quiet when we went. We were the only ones there! As a result we got good attentative service. Nevertheless the food was good. It's slightly more expensive than average but good value. There was a good range of wines and we enjoyed the Kier Royale cocktail made with a local liquor.
