    Stylish and good restaurant. Because of COVID it lacked a bit of atmosphere, distances tables etc. Food was really good as for Portuguese kitchen. I would even describe the service as a little bit to sophisticated as for such restaurant. As bringing every dish on o trolley seems to much for us. Quite strange but the simple home made bread with butter was the best part of the dinner ;-)

    This restaurant is not in the centre of the town, so it took us a while to find it. We were pleased we didnt give up though. Its a very nice restaurant, although, for us, the lighting was a little too bright, and the walls a bit stark. However, the food was really good. An original menu, and we were offered free tastes of their homemade bread, and a delicious dessert. The staff were really pleasant, and a nice touch at the end was a gift for the ladies.

    So far the best restaurant from São Miguel: excellent food, great vibe, nice and caring waiters, and really good quality on price. The beef and tunas were perfectly cooked and seasoned, the flavors were definitely inventive, local, aesthetic in a some exotic azorean-Asian fusion cuisine.

    excellent food. I had a starter, main and dessert, all were amazing. Even the bread is homemade, and totally worth it. 100% will go again, might even be worth the return flight from Lisbon ????

    My girlfriend and I had a very tasty dinner at this restaurant. The quality of the food was great (we had black sausage, squid salad, mackerel and tuna) and the dessert (pineapple roll cake and chocolate tart) were outstanding. Also, the waiters are very kind and friendly. Thank you!

    The space is modern and clean. At first I thought the service was very good, but then our waiter forgot to put in one of our appetizers. When we ordered he said it would take 25 minutes to cook the pot pie appetizer, we said that was fine, because we were ordering 2 appetizers. The first one came, and we waited and waited, meanwhile I ordered 1 main dish. When our main dish came out, we asked where is the pot pie. He was absolutely dumbfounded! Plus, the 2 dishes we did get were not hot, not even lukewarm. Seriously, COOK the food and serve it HOT!!! The raviolis were completely under cooked and the tuna was over cooked, I had asked for the tuna, mal passado, which is rare, it was not. Also, there was a very large group having their holiday party there, but they were eating from a buffet table. We were the only other table, you think the kitchen (all the buffet food was out and in serving dishes) would have gotten the food cooked correctly.

    Great food with roots in the region and a gourmet touch; I tried Santa Maria sausage with garlic, peppers, a poached egg and edible flowers with some of their homebaked bread - lovely!

    The restaurant is nice, nevertheless the portions rather small and a bit overpriced. We had bread and Ceviche to start with, excellent but little. The Tuna was amazing! It practically fell apart in the mouth and the sesame crust was intense and a taste explosion. For dessert we had the local bread pudding and the chocolate tart-the best dessert we have had all of our stay in Sao Miguel! It is nice that the restaurant was not too full, that way we were in and out within the hour. Overall we had a good time at the restaurant, with delicious food and a good experience!

    We had an excellent dinner with an exceptional tuna dish and slow cooked pork belly. The waiter was really caring and recommended a suitable wine.
