We came here on our last night in Ponta Delgada. A restaurant that collaborates with a hotel school in the area. Service was very fast and nice. One of us had a lot of intolerances: they did everyting they could to choose the right dish that was possible to make with all the changes that were necessary. Overal a great... More

We ate here as a family of 7, age 11 to 70+ on the last night of our holiday. 3 of our party ordered sushi and were really pleasantly surprised at the quality and taste of the meal. My son ordered the children's burger, which was more like a steak, beautifully cooked and quality meat. The remainder of us ordered... More

This is a lovely place to go in Ponta Delgata. We had the tasting menu and it was delicious. The young waiters-in-training are very competent though shy some of them. The best food experience for us in town.

This place is a bit surreal. On the plus side, the setting is quite nice: great view on the harbor and modern decoration. Food was generally quite good and creative, a clear standard above your local eatery. On the minus side, service was very uneven to be kind. My wife's fish was overlooked and her desert more good looking than... More

This hidden gem has a great view right to the harbour. There are no signs directing you to this place so you just have to know where to look. Once you're inside you'll appreciate the clean and professional look of the place. Waiter/waitress trainees were friendly and spoke decent english. They were happy to explain what was in the dishes.... More

First of all it is a bit hard to find. The resturant is placed under the big stone stance between the two marinas. The diffrence in price from eating an avrage meal in town and eating their 5 course tasting menu is not that big. The places we eat at a dinner was 10-15 euro and this resturant take 25... More

We had the same trouble others had; made a reservation that didn't make it to the restaurant. We don't speak Portuguese and the hostess dos not really speak English. The place was *empty* at 8p (the time of our reservation) and we the hostess kept asking about our reservation even though we showed her the confirmation. And the place was... More

An experience like no other, this review will not do it justice! We chose the 8 course tasting menu over the two 5 course menus as neither of us do octopus or squid which were on those. The portions are small enough that after all the courses you should just feel comfortable they told us, my husband did but I... More
