As partners and supporters of the local economy preference always is given to local producers and suppliers. The agricultural products used are provided by a small local producers whose product quality and consistency meets Chef Paulo Mendonça Costa quality standards. Meat and fish have to undergo the same process and it is the Chef himself who personally takes care of the meat and fish preparation. All fish fillets that arrive at our customers table were carefully cut and prepared by the hands of the head Chef.
Cheese, bread and wine selections have to meet Vitor Mendonça Costa high standards, as head host at Caldeiras&Vulcões. They always have a modest selection of fresh as well as cured local cheeses, to be paired with some regional wines (Pico, Graciosa, Terceira and São Miguel). São Miguel island natural mineral waters are a constant presence and the wine list is enriched with the presence of wines from renowned Portuguese wineries.
