The steack on the stove is a must! The meat is so tender and very tasty. We really enjoyed the owner. He is super friendly and was super happy the entire time. A restaurant to visit for sure in Terceira.

The owner Frank was happy and friendly all the way up until the end. Don’t get me wrong, the food was great, once you found something you wanted from the menu that they actually had. We waited an hour and a half to even get...our appetizers and almost left (We wish we had). There is no drink menu and the “house” wine is only good for half the bottle. When it comes time to pay, Frank gets very irritated and starts berating you to come up and pay him. (Cash only) He will write everything out and not give you a receipt so that he doesn’t have to pay any taxes. My groups bill alone was 301€. We made sure that he took one of our tax numbers to make sure he claimed it. When we did this he got extremely angry and said that we must be government workers. This place is not worth your time, money or patience!More

Great place to eat, but make sure you have a reservation or come late after 21.30. The steak on stone is absolutely fabulous! They also have fresh fish caught on the day itself if you don’t like meat. There is an impressive Gin collection you...can choose from aswell. Dont skip because of the interior ;)More

Never ever tasted something like this. The apetizer was great, the beef was just...life changing. The meat was incredible. The staff was absolutely tons and tons of fun and instantaneously you feel like you know them from a long time. A visit to this restaurant...is worth the flight to the Azores alone. If you get your ass to the Azores, do not skip this place at any freaking cost.More

We came for food and i blacked out when i got my stone stake. For 5-10min i totally ignored my friends and devoted my full atenntion to the meat porn before me. Best service and food hands down. The experience of cooking a stake on...a hot stone by myself was a once in a lifetime experience. Also the owner was entertaining af. Verynice.More

Joined some friends for dinner here while visiting the island. The steak was excellent. I particularly like the part where he (or his son) serves you the first bite. The owner is a charcter, looking forward to returning and trying to get him to serve...me the gin I actually ordered.More

Yeah I agree with the other folks. Just show up. No problem, especially if you're relatively early. You'll love it. No website? Part of its charm.
