As the title says, only typical food of excelent quality, try the "prego" the regional steak sandwich or the"picado" chopped meat in squares with French fries in a creamy sauce of mushrooms and garlic, or the always appreciated filete de espada. "black sword fish filet"....More

A nice restaurant next to the Hotel Vila Baleira. Efficient and quick service, and home made food featuring octopus and the famous "chopped" meat. In the usual sunny days has an esplanade. Fundamental to go on a visit to Porto Santo

Our favourite in Porto Santos. Well priced and good food. Also very close to hotel if you get bored of the all inclusive buffet... Wonderful staff and owners. Flexible and great service. Favourite place also for local people. A must to visit!

We went for a quick dinner. But the food was mediocre and boring. We had far better food elsewhere at the same price - with free pick up service. But the staff was very friendly and it was an easy walk from Hotel Vila Baleira.

We just had lunch there. The restaurant is nice, even though located on the street, it's very chalming. The service is friendly, food is great. High quality but cheap anyway, perfect.

A good little corner for a quick meal. Some tables outside but the space is not very big. We recommend the "Picadinho"

Although not in town, this is a very popular place. Classic island food, great choice of wines, and excellent staff. Again we visited several times, and reckon it is one of the best watering holes on the island.

We loved this restaurant. The ambiance is rustic and super neat, the service was fast though the restaurant was almost full and the food was really good. You simply must try the tradicional "bolo do caco" and the "picado"
