The menu is fantastic ... tapas and wine ! Delicious bread. Very friendly service with great recommendations for wine. I loved the roasted tomatoes with honey which they recommended for me and even gave me the recipe ! I tried the pata negra for the first time and it was just slightly salty with a silky texture ... worth a... More

Everything you have read about this wonderful establishment is true....a little hard to find but worth the search. My husband and I enjoyed our last meal in Ponta Delgada at Reserva Bar. We were the first to arrive and as such had the pleasure of speaking with our host and waiter Gonzalo about all the incredible wines they have in... More

I had saved this restaurant to come to when we first started planning our vacation months ago. It really is hard to find though! We tried to come here 2 nights and just couldn't find it (we overshot the alleyway both times) but we eventually found it. We tried some delicious local wine, both bottles recommended by the waiter who... More

Charming wine bar -with great selection for all tastes. Knowledgeable staff provided good suggestions. Would recommend for couples that want some ambience off the tourist strip - who happen to love quality meats and wine!

So the restaurant is located in a back alley and looks closed from the outside. The restaurant could really do something about this, but what you need to do is just try the door. :) The place is super cosy and the staff is really knowledgeable about wines. Another thing is that this isn't so much a restaurant, but rather... More

My husband and I loved dining at Reserva. It is a bit difficult to find (it is down a dead end alleyway off a side street), but worth it. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and helped us pick out the perfect wine. The food was excellent (tapas style) and we loved every bite. The pricing was great - we would... More

This hard to find restaurant looked closed from the outside, so the top tip is push the door - as recommended by another TA user - glad I did otherwise I'd have walked away and missed out on a unique and thoroughly enjoyable wine and tapas experience. Our waiter Goncales, was very helpful and attentive and made the experience special.... More

Don't miss this place! It's kind of tricky to find, and we thought it was closed when we got there, but when we opened the door we found a really nice restaurant with amazing tapas and wine. Maybe a bit more expensive than the average restaurant in Ponta Delgada, but believe me, it's worth every cent! And the staff is... More

A hidden gem; a bit hard to find it worth the effort. An extremely knowledgeable waiter, personable and friendly also. Engage in a bit of a conversation about your food and wine interests and he will steer you in the right direction.
