Had a fantastic meal at Reserva recently. The place is small, only a few tables, but the service and the food are flawless. Went with a party of 4 (definitely make a reservation as they seem to only seat eat table once a night.) We shared 2 bottles of wine over the course of the meal - both Portuguese and selected by Bruno based on our interests. Both were very good. We shared a cheese platter, bread basket and small portion of chorizo to start. The bread/buns were some of the best I have had. we followed with the fresh mushrooms, tomatoes roasted in honey and salad. Then finished with 2 desserts shared (which was plenty.) I would recommend Reserva to anyone visiting Ponta Delgada.

As stated above, I couldn't fault the place. Great food, prepared well and all explained to you at the table.

A great selection of wines also available, all served in cosy and inviting surroundings. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, a great place to visit if you are in the mood for Tapas.

A little tricky to find (for me anyway) but definitely worth seeking out if you are in the area.

Obligada !

What a wonderful find in Ponte Delgada. Bruno's passion for showcasing the best Portuguese food and wine is a joy to experience. His knowledge and very friendly personality combine to make a great dining experience. His concept of keeping the food simple and matching it with excellent wines is a winning combination. Lovers of cold meats, cheese and wine won't be dissapointed.

This is a small wine bar that prides itself on attention to detail. The waiter will ask you what type of wine you like and your budget, he will then bring you a matching wine and explain its origin. However there is no pretentiousness, it's not a wine lesson it is just a man with a passion for wine who wants you to enjoy yourself. The tapas is also exceptional. We had the mixed meat and cheese board and it was more than enough for two, we took some of our hams and sausages home!! If you want to try exceptional local food and wine in a cosy intimate setting then you should visit this restaurant.

We were blown away by the food, wine, service and ambience. The meat and cheese platter is so much more than you would get in North America in diversity, taste and quantity. The side dishes were all delicious Too bad our appetites could not accommodate more. The server was extremely knowledgeable about wines and helped us to choose the right ones for each of us. This restaurant was truly a unique experience.
