Pretty average seafood restaurant, fish was either tasteless, either it swam in a bath of olive oil. The octopus stew was absolutely upsetting and almost inedible.

Ancoradouro is the best place to eat in Pico. It was out third time at Pico, clearly the restaurant offer has improved in the last years but ancoradouro remains the best place - great Portuguese dishes , great Pico wine and friendly service

Enchanting location, breathtaking Sunsets. Nicely furnished, all waiters are kind in spite of being very very busy. Good wines but especially very good dishes (especially fish). I went everynight during my staying in Pico and enjoyed each time more!!!
