Excellent food and good service. Probably the upper range of the restaurants. They charge you for the bread that goes with the soup though which is rather irritating. With one glass of wine and coffee/tea and two courses the bill was ca 50 Euros. But the food was very good.

Location is perfect right at the harbour. Food is good and homemade, unlike commercial food served in other places. Pastries are fabulous and service excellent.

An elegant dining room and beautifully presented, perfectly prepared dishes. Spendy by Ponta Dlgada, a screaming bargain by any other. We had a lovely evening here.

Staying at the attached Hotel do Colegio, ate dinner here 2 of 3 nights in Ponta Delgada. Service was wonderful, food was excellent and reasonably priced for a 3-4 star restaurant in Europe. Wife had Duck with Olives one night and Braised Pork the 2nd; I had catch of the day fish -- Tuna steak one night, some meaty white fish the 2nd -- all excellent both nights. Desserts & appetizers good as well; trusted the maitre d' to pick wines for our meals, no complaints with the wines and again reasonably priced. A couple of reviewers mention language barriers -- well it's not US/UK/Canada, but menus were bilingual and wait staff all spoke at least some English (common in Sao Miguel). Lots of restaurants in P.D., eat at least one meal here!
