The restaurant is on the sea, and the sight is amazing. The fish is fresh, very well cooked and tasty. Prices are very reasonable and portions big. The waiter and the owner are very kind and attentive. Very much recommended. Try the fish and chips!

In Horta it is difficult to choose anything other than seafood to eat and at Genuino's you will not be disappointed. The swordfish and the fish rice are two such dishes to be recommended. Prices are about €30 per head, for two course with drinks
