Small family restaurant that started in 1984, being the first burguerhouse in the island it is widely known for it, but not only, as we offer a variety of quality fish, meat, fresh salads, with that homemade touch from a team with almost 40 years of exper
A simple place to eat but a good selection ranging from hamburgers to grilled tuna and swordfish. The tuna was fantastic. Fresh soup of the day was vegetable and hit the spot. Adventure out and try the fresh cheese!. Service was leisurely and friendly. Hard to beat for the price.

Restaurante TN, the emblematic restaurant of Terra Nostra Garden Hotel, located in Terra Nostra Garden with unique surroundings in Furnas Valley, is a real Azorean pleasure. Let yourself be guided by the hands of our Chef Vitor Veloso and its extraordinar
Our VERY GOOD experience would have been an EXCELLENT experience if the restaurant staff had taken care of the little details. Fortunately for us, my pre-trip research and direct approach paid off. FOOD: After reading more than 100 reviews of the various restaurants in Furnas that serve cozido, I decided to reserve a lunch table several weeks in advance. Terra Nostra Garden offers traditional cozido, vegetarian cozido with couscous and non-cozido options such as steak and seafood. I pre-ordered 1 cozido meal and specified that my dining partner would be ordering from the Ã la carte menu. In this way, we would both be able to taste cozido while enjoying other dishes. After all, when we go to other restaurants, we donât all order the same items. Itâs more fun to share.COZIDO: It was delicious! The meat was smoky and tender (beef brisket, chicken, blood sausage, chorizo and pork trotter). The vegetables were scrumptious (collard greens, cabbage, sweet potato, potato, taro and carrot). The accompanying broth was flavourful. I could have drank a cup of it! After finishing my plate, I asked for seconds of the vegetables and the pork trotter. According to the fine print on the menu, customers can ask for additional servings of cozido. Other restaurants bring a mountain of food that becomes less appetizing as it cools down. So much is wasted. A LA CARTE: My dining partner chose fish soup and the forkbeard fish fillets. The soup was dark and deeply aromatic - better than the bouillabaisse I had in Marseille.FREE TICKETS to the botanical garden and thermal pools: According to the fine print on the menu, ordering a minimum of 30â¬ entitles each diner to a free ticket. Our bill came to 64â¬ for the 2 of us. When the manager swiped my credit card, he did not mention the tickets but I overheard him telling another table about it. He even brought some tickets to their table. As we got up to leave, I asked him about the tickets and he pointed me to the front desk. Preferential treatment? BOTANICAL GARDEN AND THERMAL POOLS: Using the free tickets, we were able to save 8â¬ per person and skip the queue for entrance to the garden and pools. The garden is so beautiful! I only wish there were some lockers or more benches to put oneâs belongings. I can imagine how pleasant it must be to stay in the hotel and stroll to the thermal pool in the early morning.
We stumbled upon A Quinta one afternoon and decided to have dinner there too. The location is surprising and the gardens lovely. Max was so helpful and passionate about the wines, and helped us make some really excellent choices which complimented the lovely food we had too. We also had the opportunity to try his own beer, which was just delicious. We also loved the fact that the wines were available to take away and wished we'd got more. If your ever in Furnas and you love wine, this is a must, and say hello to Max.
THE GARDENER is a fusion between garden, park, hotel, bar and terrace. A constant sharing of sensations and emotions between spaces, a yin and yang of unique experiences and moments.
So, where to start! Jess and I have spent the last two weeks here on Sao Miguel celebrating our honeymoon! We have been staying at the Terra Nostra hotel, home of the Gardener bar. It has been our favoured haunt in the evenings and a great place for light lunch or a late breakfast during the day. Over the last two weeks Jess and I have tried most of their menu and can honestly say there have been NO bad choices! The staff are possibly the most friendly bar staff we've ever met, always up for a chat and very knowledgable! I must admit the silver service style treatment took me some time to get used to...but after talking about the importance of tourism to the island I have softened to the idea of being waited on. As an Englishman it has been very different to the norm....everything is order at the bar back home!On the island as a whole, we cannot recommend the Azores enough. From our first night listening to crickets as we drove to the hotel to hiking the craters of a volcano and kayaking the lakes within...we have so many memories from these two short weeks! We dont know when it will be, but we have already begun planning for our return as there is so much we haven't seen...and we know the Terra Nostra hotel and their Gardener Bar will be central to our return!Lewis and JessHappy HoneymoonersN.B. the photos include views from elsewhere on the island.
