We had lunch at Beora Mar Sao Mateus a couple times and the food was good both times. The restaurant always seems busy and the second visit we dined in the small room next to the restaurant which was fine as it was less crowded...therefore less noisyMore

The restaurant is near the seaside and there’s a beautiful landscape, we went here without a reservation and we waited for 20 minutes but it was thursday so i recommend to book it. The food was delicious and we waited for it just 15 minutes,...there is a huge choice and the waiter is friendly and available. If you are in Terceira you should definitely try it.More

This restaurant was highly recommended to us, and with reason. We both ate fish, it was very fresh, and well done.

Fresh fish, friendly service, nice view to the peer, fair prices. PS - the restaurant Quebra Mar has the same owner and even the menus are identical, identical food quality

With a group of 16 people we really had the best fish, different ones, everyone tasted many fish, shrimps, octopus. Price was kind of funny, drinks included up to 20e each. Highly recommended

A cozy and welcoming place with greatest sea food I have ever tasted in Portugal and outside. The fish and sea fruits are fresh and delicious, the bread is very tasty, wine is great and the service is extraordinarily friendly. The sea view with the...fishermen boats adds charm to make it just a perfect spot for the most wonderful time during the meal. I loved every plate I had, went there to have lunch and dinner during all my stay in Terceira: lapas, fish, veges and potatoes! I will miss it and recommend everyone who appreciate a great sea food meal and good service to visit Beira Mar right away.More

We had dinner at this fabulous restaurant and we were completely satisfied! I had the wreckers and my boyfriend the "chefs steak" both were simply amazing. The fish was super fresh and perfectly cooked. The view from the balcony is also very beautiful and makes...the experience even better. Great service too! Absolutely recommended!More

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
