My second visit. The place is under refurbishment these days. Food is good but not nothing special. Good variety of snacks, shellfish and main courses offered are okay. The "prego" is the best to try. Expensive regional wines. Service is courteous but there is a lack of attention. Parking would be a problem. It seems that all island is trying... More

We went there for dinner and some days later for lunch (it´s that good). The shelfish is very good, very fresh and well made. The meat is very good too (tender as butter, it melts on the mouth). I tryed dessert and it was ok, nothing remarkable. The service is ok. The price is not for a daily basis.

Recommended by my Hotel. Filled with locals. Nice walk along the coast to the restaurant or they will pick you up! Looked like loads of fresh seafood. The garlic bread was amazing. The limpets came out sizzling and the cinnamon ice cream is a little piece of heaven. My waiter was quick and very entertaining. My only reservation is that... More

I have been twice to this restaurant but i need to say that we had a good meal both times. However for the price paid we should get better quality...... diversity is quality... For the same money in the mainland we could get much better food. I guess that it's due to lack of competition.....

We followed the advise of our tour guide and gave this restaurant a try. There is a free pick up from our hotel which is really handy if you stay in ponta Delgada. The driver was very helpful and friendly and gave us some recommendations on what to try. The selection of seafood is enormous and the lobster I had... More

We went for a late lunch and order deep fried sardines, shrimps and fish of the day. This place was recommended by locals as "one of the best seafood restaurant on the island". The view from the restaurant is awesome as their food. I'll let the photos speak for the rest.

We ate dinner here and were very pleased with our meal. We had Wreckfish which I had never heard of. The plate of food was enormous with fruit and vegetables plus a packet with steamed vegetables. The lemon pie for dessert was one of the best I've ever tasted. Food was hot, cooked to perfection. The menu offers a wide... More

The place is famous for its seafood but one must not forget that in the Azores the meat is first rate. I had the best "prego" I have ever had! If you don't know what that is, it just means that you have to go there and taste it...

On our first night in the Azores we had this restaurant recommended to us. The owner came and picked us up and brought as back which made the visit even better. We had squid and wreckfish and both were soooo good. Very health portions and fantastic staff with a great sense of humour. Definitely a recommendation!
