Great view over The beach and good fish dishes. The online complaint i have is that we asked to simple grill a fish with no saúce since my youngest is alérgic to dairy and we had to send it back once and The second time was a bit dry. Só my advice stick to The menu.

Tagliatelle with (6) shrimp was horrible. Overcooked pasta, bad flavour, shrimp not cleaned, bathing in juice.
The server did propose to get another dish though.
Don't understand how they can miss such a simple dish with all ingredients at hand.
Mojito was not properly prepared either.

I have always gone here for lunch , on warm days and sat on the terrace over looking the ocean, a bit of fish, a glass of white wine, and a view across the northern coast line. Really relaxing.
They do good grilled fish, don't over cook it too much, tasty cataplana (fish stew) and paella, ( local version not like the Spanish) By local standards this is a good place, and the service is excellent and attentive. I will be going back

We went there with a Portuguese friend who knew the restaurant. It is really delicious. The sea view is fantastic, the service is really good and the food... just amazing! You really have to go at least once during your stay in Sao Miguel. You need a car to get but a taxi is also fine and it is well worth it! Enjoy your visit to Alabote, you won´t regret it!
