It can be translated as “The Bee Hive”, but don’t let the name fool you. “Cantina do Colégio” is a new restaurant in Ponta Delgada. It introduces a new approach to the traditional Azorean cuisine, with dishes made to share.
The space itself is familiar to the Azoreans, acclaimed by the critics and with a pioneer gastronomic style, it was a reference in Ponta Delgada. 15 years later, a change was required, following the full renovation of Hotel do Colégio.
What A Colmeia has to offer is equally daring and innovating. The timeless gastronomic creations go hand in hand with innovation and creativity, in a diversified menu, that highlights the local products and traditions. It’s not only about what you can taste but also about the stories behind each dish, related to the Azorean folklore.
Cantina do Colégio is open for dinner, with service à la carte, from 7 pm to 11 pm.
