My family loves this restaurant! Food and service is excellent. Can't wait to return. I recommend any soup, the chicken dinner, octopus, and limpets. All of these dishes are amazing.

We had the shrimp and the octopus, the bill was around 25EUR. The octopus was to die for, everyone in the restaurant was ordering it, it’s their most popular dish.

The seafood here was quite exceptional - particularly the octopus and shrimp. Don't go here for atmosphere or ambiance or service though. The waitresses were inattentive and unfriendly.

After swimming in the thermal hot springs in the ocean we went here for lunch. It’s popular but you can put your name in if there are no tables and then take a walk down to the ocean to photograph the rock formations. Good burgers,...More

Our US family has been on Sao Miguel for a few days, specifically Mosteiros. We walked to this restaurant today after reading reviews and getting the facts from a local. Very casual, very rustic open for lunch, then closes and reopens for dinner. Check hours...More
