Alcides restaurant belongs to the hotel with the same name. It is a family run restaurant that serves good traditional food. The price-quality ratio is good. It is advisable to make reservation for dinner or get there early.

We heard something about the stakes and went to the dinner there. Everything was just perfect, if you are at Azores you need to try the best stake in the city.

My husband and I had the fish, I had mahi Mahi which was very disappointing and he had swordfish which he liked. I am Portuguese and thought it was totally unrepresentative of good typical Portuguese cooking. Wine recommendations where good and we had pineapple for dessert excellent

Just like the namesake hotel where we stayed, the restaurant's staff is incredibly friendly. While not cheap, the price is fair and similar to other restaurants in town. The food is awesome. Very good quality, indeed. The place itself, part of the hotel, is quite comfortable.

Locals have known for many years how good the steak is; traditionally, it's made of matured beef, a practice that relates to the original owner, a gentleman called Alcides. Along the years a number of things have changed but, nothing drastic, just to comply with current law demands and, generally speaking it's been for the better. The restaurant is famous... More

Nice interior, friendly staff, that's really quick (at least in my case). I had food served within maximum ten minutes, and it was heaven! I had beef de Alcides, which was really tender and juicy, grilled just as i asked for. Interesting addition was salted red pepper, which alone wouldn't be edible, but was a good with the steak. Full... More

The atmosphere is cozy and the service is good. We shared a tenderloin steak for two that was delicious. Restaurant is part of the hotel and directly across from the Casa Hinze Ribeiro Boutique hotel.

Our group of seven enjoyed a very relaxing meal here - attractive interior, friendly, attentive staff and a great location, central to shopping/touring Ponta Delgada. The ones that followed our server's suggestion regarding the steaks were extremely pleased with the tenderness/flavour, as was my husband who said the roast pork dish was succulent and flavourful. The side dishes were very... More

usually when I am in Ponta Delgada I always have a steak. This time I decided not to check tripadvisor and asked at the Hotel for some advice. They mentioned Alcides. When I got there I should have left immediately when they rudely said i had to wait an hour to be sited. But I guessed the food should be... More

Famous for the "Alcides steak" our experience confirms it .. Good quality , tender and tasty steak with excellent taste profile . The downside the service organizations is not good enough .. We waited 10 min to get the side dish which is not ideal for a steak meal.
