Summer Breeze

Reviewed By Julie P - Portsmouth, United Kingdom

One of our favourite hang outs during our stay in Furnas. We visited here 3 times during our stay. The staff were so warm and welcoming. We immediately felt relaxed. They have an excellent selection of beers and wines. We tried the steak Sandwich, chicken Sandwich and a burger. All of which were delicious. Definitely order fries too! A warning though...The portions are huge so you definitely won't need to eat for the rest of the day! If you want a relaxed, friendly atmosphere with amazing food then this is the place to go!

O Miroma

Speciality "Cozido da Furnas".

Reviewed By Ivana P

We went to this restaurant in hopes to check out the local food Cozido das Furnas for a good price. Mistake. The food came already cold, half of the plate were bones and parts of meat were dry. In my opinion, for 13,50€ it was very overpriced. However, luckily we stuffed on carrot soup and goat's cheese so we didn't stay hungry. The staff was professional but cold without a hint of smile.

Restaurante Tonys

Reviewed By Julie P - Portsmouth, United Kingdom

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Furnas. The first visit we wanted to try the Cozido which is the traditional dish cooked underground. This however was not possible as we were unaware you must order this 24 hours in advance. We decided to stay and order something else. I had fish which came with lots of vegetables. We also tried the limpets to start. The portions were large. The second time we visited we had the Cozido. It was delicious. However, I would prefer more vegetables as there was a lot of meat. Overall, both meals were good and the service was great.

Reviewed By David H - Hope, Maine

Dinner here was a superb reward for 14 km of trekking around Furman. The atmosphere is quiet and pleasant. Service was prompt and above average. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. My grilled ribs were tender and excellent. My wife had Pico de Gallo and it too was excellent.
My only complaint is not specific to this restaurant; why do all restaurant s in Sao Miguel have a TV screen on? Fortunately this restaurant had no sound with the TV and Did have very pleasant background music st low volume.

Reviewed By RodMcLeod - San Francisco, California

There are apparently 2 of these restaurants in Furnas. We ate lunch at #1. We of course came for the "cozido das Furnas", the local stew cooked in the hot springs of the Caldera nearby.
The stew was delicious and filling. It is comprised of pork, beef, chicken, sausage, cabbage, potatoes, yams and carrots, all cooked together. It goes down well with the local draft beer.
One serving is more than enough for two people. The service was fine.

Reviewed By Nadiya K - Kiev, Ukraine

The restaurant serves a traditional Furnas food (cozido) of a very good quality. It is delicious and the portion is quite big, more than for 1 person. The only thing - you have to book a place in this restaurant beforehand.
