I had booked a table here for four people to celebrate my mother's birthday. Looking at their website and their calendar, I had chosen a day (a Tuesday) in which there was supposed to be live jazz, as it is a passion of my mother's.
So we get in on the Tuesday, and at first they say that they only have a reservation for two people, and they don't have space for four. I was annoyed and insisted that I had booked for four, so that they eventually agreed and gave us a 4-person table (I didn't understand their initial reticence, as they had more than enough space).
As it turns out there was no live music. I asked why that was the case and they apologised saying that their website is out of date since one or two years and they changed the schedule of the live music. Seriously?? The website specifically said that on that date (not just every Tuesday), there was supposed to be live music.

All in all the food was good and kind of refined, but very expensive relative to the prices in the island, and given the great (cheap) food we ate in other places, I don't think this place offers great value.
I recommend this place only in case you're looking for fancy food, but make sure they get your reservation right, and that you directly ask when they're playing live music..

Really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was excellent, especially the dessert. Also tried a Portuguese wine on the waiters recommendation which was great and went really well with the food. The place also had a nice atmosphere with live music

This is a nice and trendy restaurant in ponta delgada. Probably one of the few places with a diferent ambiance in the city (with live music). The food is good and the cuisine is creative. The price is a little higher, but reasonable.

We went here on a whim, and did`t regret it. The atmosphere was nice, and they even had live piano and singing, the musician was good, and the music not too loud. The food and wine was amazing. In stead of getting the main courses we had four of the starters (for two to share), The food was great, from the beetroot salad with chevre and roasted hazelnuts, the beef carpaccio, the ceviche to the seafood bruschetta. All delicious! And they could even recommend a great wine. The price is good, it`s not cheap nor too expensive, and the food is more than worth the price you pay for it. I would`t mind going back here again.

The restaurant is a mess. Dirty and instruments lying around in the middle of the place. Had to wait 10 minutes to get served a glass of wine at the bar...A glass of local wine for 5 euro.. go elsewhere!
