This restaurant is much nicer inside than you would imagine from the road. It was also quite busy mid week in October, so probably a good idea to book ahead. The fish menu is extensive, but they only had 3 options available, all on ice...More

We went for a late lunch and had the bluemouth rockfish and chicken, both on the grill. Both were delicious and reasonably priced. The service was also fantastic. A great find in Horta.

This is a great restaurant if one is interested in fish or seafood, you can actually see the cook picking up your fish from the ice next to the kitchen window. Very nice design and arrangement, fast service and not expensive. Booking is advised. Easy...More

The service was average for the Azores. My husband had sausage, which he really enjoyed. I had the vegetarian plate, which included grilled vegetables, salad, potatoes, cheese, garlic bread, and a hard-boiled egg. My only complaint is that the vegetables tasted very meaty to me...More
