Santa Barbara Restaurant

Reviewed By O814PFsarahl

Our concierge reserved for us and as it is a small restaurant reserve so you are not disappointed. Very cool/chic bungalow hotel on the unspoiled North sound of island with a rare beach. Contemporary decor and interior design using sustainable materials from the island (basalt stone, cane, cedar). Relaxed, cool vibe and excellent, friendly service (in English). We had the fresh sushi/sashimi (including parrotfish) with a white Alentejo wine and it was delicious. Live music playing, watching a pink sky sunset made our dinner perfect!

We had a fantastic and delicious dinner. They were very accommodating to our dietary requests, and also accommodating to anything we needed to keep our two-year-old from causing too much trouble. The food was phenomenal, interesting, thoughtful, well-plated. The restaurant itself is cute, and it really feels like you are eating a home-cooked meal from the hosts. A lovely and wonderful experience, and our best meal in the entire Azores.

Ribeiramar Restaurante

In this wonderful location, overlooking the sea and looking at the wonderful North coast of the island of São Miguel from Ribeira Grande, we have created for you a unique regional menu, such as the Fish Stew made inside the Volcano.

Reviewed By globetrottingYankee

Good location, dining on a balcony with a sea view. Short menu, albeit not remarkable. We ordered the 4-piece sample appetizer(4Q), which turned to be olives, quality eggs, a pork pate and guess what—tiny packs of butter!!! Since when is butter an appetizer? — Bread was extra 2Euros!!! We ordered the 3-fish special for two. It was suppose to be served with hollandaise sauce but, no, we were served melted butter. While the fish were grilled well, the side vegs was the iceberg lettuce that I detest (useless veg without nutrients) and the a bowl of boiled potatoes. For the price, even for the Azores, we could have a better dinner elsewhere. In short—-NOT recommended.Hello @globetrottingYankee! We value every review and we thank you for sharing your opinion. We're happy the fish was great, we naturally want to give every customer the best possible experience but we understand that we cannot satisfy everyone. For instance, we would like to have known that you detested that specific lettuce, we would have changed it for something more of your preference.

Maria Pic-nic

Maria Pic-nic its a family-friend take away restaurant that creates unique and traditional Azorean picnics for you to take-away and enjoy at your own leisure. Picnics are a popular practice in the Azores. Our nature has unforgettable places for picnics, s

Reviewed By Fran D

First day we were scheduled for a pic nic in the Sete Cidades area by the lake and it was raining, but she found the only covered picnic spot and is was a magical place in a moss covered forest by the beautiful lake. Then oh my what a spread of local Azorean delicacies we had never had before, pineapple and bean pastry, tuna stuffed deviled eggs, the king of cheeses, fava beans and spicy chorizo, cinnamon bread, so much more and local line.Then the next day we met her at the Ponta Delgado market, picked out fish, beef, herbs, veg, potatoes, cheeses, then went to her new house in Fenais de Luz for a cooking class. We toured her new fabulous garden, made a lunch of all Azorean specialties, like Abrogado fish soup and a fish and potato stew, beef with cinnamon and chorizo, rice pudding and more. Sampled liqueurs, made by her parents. Felt like we were eating at a friends house.This was so special, best experience of our whole Portugal trip.I highly reccomend Maria for whatever you are looking for in the culinary department!Thank you so much for charing your time in the Açores with me. It was a pleaseur to have you in my house, where i could listen to your beautifulls stories.I wish you all the best!Maria

Restaurante Monte Verde

Reviewed By jamie r

If you want to play the mysterious fish weight vs portion unknown cost game; go here... no menu, pick fish of a board as you walk in feeling slightly deceived and confused by your waiter over portions and fish types, sit at a table with tiny windows and a slight glimpse of the sea past the drinks fridge, TV on and radio blaring in the corner. Get bill and realise the whole fish you bought is in fact 2 portions... not 1 as it is conveyed on the board... see other similar reviews in this thread. Whilst the fish was ok, misleading customers does not work in the long run... you’re better off at cervejaria cascata nearby where honesty prevails...

Alabote was a nice stop for an early dinner in Ribeira Grande. Its a busy waterfront/beach area but Alabote was a great Oasis. The fish was nicely prepared and the service was good. We enjoyed the outdoor patio.Thank you for your review. We're glad you liked your experience in our restaurant. We hope to see you again!Best regards,Alabote Restaurant

Boteco do Miguel

We inform our clients that we will be closed from the 19th to the 27th of October. Thank you for preference and understanding.

Reviewed By Mardilly

This was absolutely fine for a basic meal or if you want to keep it cheap, but not sure why all the five star reviews. Service is great and both owner and staff are super friendly. Pizza was ok but nothing special. Rated average in a good way, just not enough to be classed very good.

Restaurante da Associacao Agricola de Sao Miguel

Reviewed By globetrottingYankee

It’s an upscale eatery, the place to go for meat dishes after the daily fares of fish/seafood on the island. Truly a place for carnivores, huge servings of meat between 200g (7 oz) to 400g (14 oz). The morcella con ananas starter was terrific, smoky black pudding with fresh pineapple. We then had Bife pimientas perfectly cooked served with brandy sauce, and the hamburguesa associacao perfect grilled medium, bread less serve with two sunny side eggs, grilled slightly hot pepper, grilled garlic cloves and thin sauce. Both went so well with two reserva wines. Finish off with espressos. Great service. Very inexpensive.

Paladares da quinta

Reviewed By Peter V

We had several times dinner in this fancy restaurant. The menu card is an iPad,You can choose yourself the language. Every evening there are different choices for fish and shellfish, meat (pork, lamb, beef, goat and even rabbit) and even a good choice in vegetarian dishes.You make your choices and this is directly send to the kitchen. Service was amicable and quick but with poor English knowledge. All the dishes we tried were at least as good as expected, the rabbit is a real recommendation.
