Join Chef Joana for her Sushi Dinner in Senhor Raposas Secret Drinking Den

Join Chef Joana for an unforgettable sushi experience served in our exclusive, invitation-only speakeasy, Senhor Raposa’s Secret Drinking Den. Considered the best sushi chef on São Miguel, Chef Joana will impress you with her unique and exquisite approach to sushi, blending typical Azorean flavours with sustainable fish from the local waters. Our omakase-style dinner means you put your trust in Chef Joana to handpick the freshest seasonal products to create delicious and artistic dishes. Vegetarian and vegan options are available upon request at the time of booking.

Chef Joana was born and raised on São Miguel, and has grown up around fishermen and the fish they catch from the Atlantic Ocean surrounding the island. As a young adult, she discovered her passion for using this fish to create sushi.


Located at The Solar Branco Eco Estate, Senhor Raposa’s Secret Drinking Den is an intimate space designed for up to a dozen diners (or up to 18 for a private group). You will usually be seated at the Chef’s table, sharing the experience with other diners.

To avoid food waste from no-shows, you will be asked to pay a deposit of €30 per person to reserve your place. (This is non-refundable if you cancel your booking with less than 7 days notice.)  The balance of €30 plus the cost of any drinks will be charged at the end of your meal.
