I had the grilled limpets, salad and the delicious, hearty bread. My husband opted for a hamburger😫 everything was delicious. I am dying to go back to try the polvo asada (octopus stew) that EVERYONE was eating!

While no ocean view, we quite enjoyed the house octopus special, started with limpets and wine. What a wonderful way to spend the day on the west coast of Sao Miguel. An easy drive from Ponta Delgada going through the heart of the Sete Cidades....More

We went twice because we came in late the first time and they didn’t have their signature octopus dish available. We tried limpits, mussels, fish fillet, shrimp, and octopus. All were so good and reasonable price. Servers very friendly.

It is a small bar. Speciality is octopussy, very soft and tasty. Very short menu. It is mandatory to book in advance, at least in high season.

It's quite difficult to find a restaurant in the Azores! But damn, once we find this one we didn't want to leave. The food was great and very well priced.
