Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely, lively typical local fish restaurant. Everything really fresh, service attentive and fun. Decent local wine selection. Evening was made all the more fun by a large group of local 70 year olds having a whale of a time. Definitely worth visiting.

Typical fish restaurant. Friendly staff, good menu and fast. Super fast service. And the food was very, very good. And it was not even very expensive. Perhaps one of the best restaurants in the island of Terceira! A must!

Seeing so many good reviews I was thinking if worth giving a bad review, but wanted to share my experience. First of all, I must say the place is very nice. But in my opinion if you need to call the waiter many times, service...is not good. We order an entree to share and had to ask for it after a long wait. And it was cheese, nothing to cook. As main, we order two plates but only one came. After waiting a long time we realised it was not going to come and asked to cancel it. After dinner, we waited for a long time to clean the table or ask for désert. Nobody come even if some people were wanting to take our place. In fact we were thinking about comming back but we will not.More

Delicious, fresh fish. I tried the limpets ( brave!) - they were very tasty. A good wine to go with it too. As a solo traveller, difficult to get small portions as many of the day's catches are sold as whole fish - but they...found me a small red snapper which was great - and cooked to perfection. Simple sides lets the fish do the talking.More

Recommended by two locals. We didn't have reservations but got there right when it opened so we were able to get seated. Great seafood selection, the portions are big and delicious, good wine, and friendly staff. Our second time we didn't have reservations, got there...before they opened and were seated if we promised to be done before 2 hrs. YES!! Grilled octopus, shrimp and squid skewers are great. You need to go!More

Truly outstanding, unpretentious seafood restaurant. Highlights were the seafood kabob (skewer) which was one of the best bites on our Azores trip. The full grilled fish was also superb. The waiters were very kind here and actually alerted us when things might cost more than...expected -- a sign of good service in my estimation. Clientele is mostly locals which speaks to the quality here. Would definitely want to come back again. Reservations recommended.More

The fish is very fresh and good and our waitress was so nice and friendly. We were seated outside so the view on the small harbour was cute. The wine selection was good also with local choices. The only issue has been with the table...reserved for which we had to wait because it was given to another couple, after a small wait we have been seated.More

Good restaurant with typical atmosphere. The fish was good but nothing so exceptional as local people mention. Still, a good place for a dinner. Excellent service.

Unfriendly and mediocre food… all the reviews are good on TripAdvisor but I don’t know what people are talking about. The sister restaurant O Chico is much better and, if you want a great restaurant, go to Robertos

Recommended to us for dinner, but no reservation available for us. We went anyway and they eventually found a table for us. Long story, but we had a great time. Food was great and the staff was excellent. Our host Roberto was very engaging with...a good sense of humor. Entire staff was outstanding. We made a reservation to come back for dinner a couple nights later to try the fish stew. Worth the trip, it was excellent also. Everything we tried was wonderful, even the house wine. Totally recommend this restaurant.More
