Nice spot although a bit hard to find because it is on the West side of the marina. Nice ambiance, attentive staff. The menu was a bit limited but the food was good. The fish rice was spectacular, but the halibut was a bit meh....The cocktail was wonderful as was the dessert which was one of the best Crème Brule we’ve had anywhereMore

A very well located restaurant with excellent views. The food and beverages menu is limited but promising. However, the quality of food that I experienced was below par. There are a number of interns under training who are part of the experience - but that...is not what I paid for. I would go here for a snack or a drink, and not for a meal.More

All around inexpensive excellent experience. A little hard to find the restaurant as it's tucked into a big building that looks deserted (ferry terminal?). We were welcomed by several pleasant servers. We had Squid tempura for our starter, Parrot fish Pad entree, dark chocolate brownie...for dessert and a bottle of wine from a great wine list. All the food was excellent. Because of all the attention we asked how they had so much help and were told they are a teaching restaurant. Excellent!More

This place is NOT expensive and it's located in a lovely, quiet position overlooking the harbour. It feels romantic, modern and the staff are very attentive. It is very peaceful and chilled.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. It is not obvious, being on the top floor of a building at the end of a pier in the harbour, with no large sign to advertise it. Our dinner was very good, and very good value. Indeed the starter...of tuna and squid was worthy of 2 Michelin stars. Tables are well spaced, in stark contrast to most other restaurants in town which seemed to be overwhelmed during the tourist season. Service was also of a high standard, undertaken by students at a catering school, with supervision.More

We stopped here twice during our stay in the Azores. The food and service is incredible! We met the manager, Hermano, who showed us around the space and took great care of us all night. The service is spectacular and the food is great, and...the views aren’t too bad either. Definitely worth a visit if you’re staying in Ponta Delgado!More

When it comes to fish, I'm apprehensive. However, this restaurant's pan seared swordfish was excellent, with terrific sauce and well complemented by chorizo polenta and fresh vegetables. Their mixed iced tea and lemonade was very sour, however, because the lemonade was unsweetened.More

Great little restaurant on the wharf in downtown Ponta Delgado. You should make a reservation, but we were the only ones there when we went. Great service and friendly staff. Our waiter told us that the kitchen was staffed by culinary students at the school...nearby. They delivered in a big way with flavors and presentation! We had ceviche and fish soup for appetizers. Short ribs and pasta for main course. Finished off with azorean orange cake and apple pie for dessert. 10/10 would recommend and visit again!More

We stayed one week at Sao Miguel, and dined at 6 different restaurants. In general all places served (surprisingly) good food at reasonable prices - only minus is that we needed to book a table in advance at most places (so no spontaneity there). But...the food at Anfiteatro was simply at a higher level than the other places. The dishes had that extra twist that made it a memorable (International) experience. We will come back.

Pedro took care of us. The drinks and dinner were a culinary experience. Octopus salad and ceviche apps were amazing and we had some of the best cocktails I have ever had in my life.

This is still a good choice for shrimp caesar salad, hamburger de novilho, milho frito, and lemonade. We were sad to see the ten euro "peixe anfiteatro" disappear from the new menu, being replaced by the seventeen euro bacalhau and the fifteen euro tuna. Seeing...the return of ceviche was exciting, but not this bland version, which in no way compares to the excellent ceviche which was my favorite menu item when I first reviewed this restaurant more than a year ago. We have been coming here 2-3 times per week but a monthly visit will likely be enough in the future.More

Right from the start, a thing must be said about the staff: they are incredible — very professional, attentive and not intrusive. They're also very smart and nice to talk to. The food was amazing, made with knowledge and respect for each ingredient on the...plate. The dessert with mature São Miguel cheese was glorious and I've no words to describe it.More
