My husband and I were recommended this restaurant by a local. We tried it out for lunch and found it to be amazing. The food is delicious and the service absolutely incredible. We liked it so much we came back from dinner! You have to...try the chicken wings! Being from the US , we have a lot of restaurants that pride on wings and this places is the best tasting wings we’ve had. We also had the seafood risotto which is out of this world! Their home made pineapple mousse is so delicious 🤤 This restaurant is a must in Sao Miguel. You won’t be disappointed!!!!More

Conveniently placed near our hotel, but a walk from the centre on an unassuming road, this family run restaurant is everything other reviewers have said. We hadn’t booked but as it was early we were given a table, though it got busy. Talked through today’s...fish catch but I chose the chicken in cream sauce which came with rice and chips. House red wine is 10euros a bottle and accompanied it nicely.More

This was our first restaurant that we visited in Ponta Delgada - it set the bar high! We were greeted by Sonya. She is so welcoming, warm and friendly. It was like being welcomed into her home:) She had some excellent food suggestions. My husband...had the octopus. He loved it, so flavourful and tender. I had the tuna - delicious as well. She let us try some local white wine from Pico before ordering. It was a nice compliment to the meal but they also had a wide variety of other good Portuguese wines. We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we went back on our last night in the Azores. We had the risotto swordfish. It was a good meal and worth trying. Thanks to Gastronomo and Sonya for your delicious food and excellent hospitality!More

We had dinner at this restaurant and were impressed thoroughly. Sonja and her son introduced themselves to us and made us feel entirely welcome as foreigners visiting Punta Delgada. We had 2 of the daily specials including fried trigger fish and a risotto tuna dish...- both were fabulous. We also had a vegetable cream soon which was also delicious. It felt as if we were visiting family - warm and comfortable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!More

This restaurant was the best meal hands down that we had all week in Azores & Madeira. You walk in and are immediately greeted warmly by Mom & her son and we left having to hug Mom thanking her for such a delicious meal and...experience. Mom explains in detail the different fish, how they are cooked, and what each will taste like. The portions are very generous, the recommended wine was fantastic, and we cannot say enough nice things about the night. The fresh Limpets were out of this world. My wife had me try something I usually don't eat, and I loved it. The restaurant was off the beaten path, and we walked from the Atlantic Marina Hotel no problem. You won't be disappointed.More
