What a great restaurant indeed. Many restaurants to choose from however, many were very quiet and lacked atmosphere, mainly becuase we were just coming to the end of the tourist season. Joao, the owner was so passionate about his Island and his restaurant and boy did it show.

From the moment we stepped inside we were welcomed with genuine enthusiasm and a warm reception. The layout was great and the walls were decorated with photgraphic art of scenic shots of the island of Sao Miguel. Furthermore a flat screen tv showing a wonderful dvd with fabulous scenic shots taken by Jao added extra interest.

The menu choice is superb with lots of different choices. I had the Mestre Dias Steak which is fried, with melted cheese, peppers,salty, garlic and sliced fried potatoes. Delicious and the best I have ever had. I want the recipe.....

The ambience, service and food were top notch. In fact it was so good we recommended fellow Brits to this island delight and were pleased to hear that they also enjoyed their dining experience just as much as us.

If staying in Ponta Delgada, you have to try thi place. Simply amazing.

Our travel guide Ricardo from Amazing Tours took us to Sao Pedro on our first visit to Sao Miguel in the Azores and we have returned on every visit.
The restaurant is just up the hill from the Avenida and the newly renovated harbor district. Along with its convenient location, the food,wait- staff and ambience are wonderful! English is spoken and the extensive menu is offered in more than one language. My beef -loving granddaughter ordered the Steak on a Stone which consisted of several tender beef slices that she "cooked" to her liking. Accompanied by potatoes, vegetables and a variety of sauces it was a lovely meal. Each of our dinners was delicous, no doggie bags for our table! When in Ponta Delgada, Restaurant Sao Pedro is not to be missed!

Definitely the best in town. Fills up quickly so best to book. People were prepared to wait outside for half an hour or more to get a table - a testament to their excellent food. We had good service with helpful staff. They told us where to buy the lovely Azorian cheeses they had. There is a sizeable menu but the beef, seafood and cheeses are local specialities. The wine recommended was also excellent. Good value all round.

The owners of tyhis restaurant have got everything just right. Good food and wine reasonably priced. Wonderful ambience with stunning photographs of the Island displayed around the restaurant. They also display a running DVD on screens which show the places to visit - done very well and does not overpower the restaurant. The staff are exceptional and this is really a place not to miss.

This is a small restaurant in size but large in great food and hospitality. The wine selection is good as is the wine. Portions are sufficient and very tasty. Though it is a few blocks from the sea the walk up is worth it if you want to have an intimate dinner and experience the Azores.
