Where to eat in São Miguel in a medium price?

Nowadays, the island of São Miguel already has a diverse offer of good places to eat. Much because of the growing tourism that is felt throughout the Azores archipelago. So, it’s very convenient to call the chosen restaurant in advance and reserve your table.

Here are my suggestions:


The epithet of regional beef steak. A restaurant for true meat lovers, the only delicacy served here. A tribute to Azorean meat.

Address: Recinto da Feira, Campo de Santana , Santana, Ribeira Grande, Ilha de São Miguel

Phone number: (+351) 296490001



A historic space in the heart of the city of Ponta Delgada that has already undergone some transformations. Currently, under the management of Grupo Anjos, Café Central offers an alternative with an excellent price/quality ratio.

The Cais 20 restaurant has a long history on the island of São Miguel and quickly became a reference in the area of seafood and snacks. It is with pleasure that we have followed the success of this restaurant, which has already increased its space several times, in order to meet the number of people who seek Cais 20 every day.

Located in São Roque, this is the ideal place to try seafood from the Azores or have a dinner just with snacks. But if that’s not your thing, no problem, there’s a long list of typical dishes to choose from.

Suplexio is an artisanal hamburger restaurant, located in a hipster area of the city of Ponta Delgada. This restaurant is quite small with few seats available and does not take reservations. The trick is to go at opening time and even then you might already find a small queue to get in.

There are hamburgers on bread for all tastes, including some vegetarian and vegan options and this space also has artisanal beer.

The fame of the restaurant A Tasca has already crossed borders. I would say that A Tasca was the pioneer restaurant in this new wave of restaurants that emerged on the island of São Miguel, more attentive to the customer, the environment of the space, quality of the cuisine and plating.

In my opinion, it is a must-see for any passerby. Follow the tip strictly to reserve a table days in advance.

Here you will find a menu of snacks, fish and meat dishes. Everything will be great!
