“Very good local cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

The menu is quite diverse - the food quality is great - waiters are very kind - you can either eat inside or in the terrace. Prices are average for Sao Miguel island. Very good place for a dinner

“Great authentic local cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

I've eaten here several times over the last few years, and was glad to finally find the restaurant on Trip Advisor. I have sent in a corrected location, as this restaurant is located in the city of Vila Franca do Campo on the island of San Miguel in the Azores. There are a couple of better places to go for seafood with a view in town, but the Universo does the best job with meat dishes. They offer a couple of combination meat selections that are just wonderful. If you'd like to try several local meats, this is a great place that is consistently good.

The restaurant is located near the St. Michaels' church (the Matriz) , right next door to the Francisco Martins Travel Agency. This is a great place for just a snack or drink, but does serve really delicious meals. The service is terrific and English is spoken. Plus, they have really good free wifi so it's a nice place to hang out for a coffee, wine, beer, or cocktail. We were back recently and glad to see that it's as terrific as ever.

“much better restaurants in town”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Asked for prawns and was told none available only to see a party of locals who came in later get some.
This was the only restaurant where the fish came in batter which covered a very bony piece of hake. A disappointing meal.
