The fish we had was so good and fresh. We’d been told they had the best seafood in the island and it was quite good. Helpful staff. Need to make a reservation as it’s very busy!

Dear Richard, I think you messed things up a little bit, because I do not run a restaurant on Terceira. Probably you read one of my restaurant reviews from 2016. Good luck, Marcel
