We went to this restaurant not expecting much and had a lovely dinner. The buffet options are a bit limited, about 8 choices and nothing was particularly hot other than the piripiri sauce but the place is interesting, the food was not bad, the owner is very charming with limited English, and it is a great deal, dinner for 2,...

BEST FOOD in all Azores. Buffet style- every dish a winner. Owner shares his love, pride, stories of local and natural food. Reads poetry. Recounts the all day process for making rice pudding - simply delicious!

This restaurant is a bit outside of the harbor area that most visitors of Horta explore, but it is within walking distance and truly a hidden gem. The buffet offers a selection of 8-10 typical dishes and is exceptionally good value for money (7 euros without, 9.50 euros with desserts). We loved everything, from homemade cabbage with sausages to beef... More

7 euros buffer per person = best deal in Horta! We appreciate the colourful decor and cozy/ comfortable atmosphere. Owner is a friendly gentleman, and the place is frequented by both locals and tourists. There are many choices of delicious home-cooked Azorean dishes. Mainly meats (beef, pork, different types of sausages), veggies, potatoes and rice. I loved the cabbage and... More

If you want experience a true "cozido" after a all day trecking on nature, try this cosy restaurant and you will be marveled with the family ambiance and the good food...it's boufet style and it's a very good price.

Home made dishes made with love. All you can eat buffet for 7 Euros. Meet dishes dominate but finally no french fries but vegetable (boiled cabbage, sweet potatoes, potatoes, simple green salad, chickpeas salad,...). Very nice 4 types of sausages (vegetarian, basic, typical Azorean blood sausage and a sausage with red wine), boiled beef with potatoes, pork meat, meet pudding,... More

If you want real traditional Azorian food, food that people make in their homes, this is the place. If you want a fine dining experience stay away. The host is gracious and personable, we had a great time chatting with him as we ate. The food was great, very tasty basic dishes that were well prepared. Price are low and... More
