Cosy restaurant, also frequented by local people. Good explanation (with the help of a book about the fish of the Azores) about the food. Friendly staff.

Opposite the Santander Totta bank, this restaurant offers good, friendly service and excellent local produce with a wide choice of fish and meat. Tourists are given a book on Azorean fish to help decipher the menu.

We made a special effort to track down this restaurant because it was billed as really great Portuguese food. We tried to book by phone but no-one ever answered, so we took a chance and walked to that end of town.
Imagine our disappointment when we stood in the doorway for a full 5 minutes with waiters and staff going to and fro in front of us (its small) all of whom completely ignored us. We found ourselves back on the street and headed off to find dinner elsewhere.
Very disappointing.

Service was fast and good, the location is nice and the room felt welcoming, though walking between the tables was really not easy. The restaurant filled quickly. Prices are very good and portions are huge!
The starter, fried mackerels, was absolutely delicious!
Our main dishes, Albacore tuna and trigger-fish, were completely disappointing: the tuna was really dry and overcooked, the trigger-fish was deep-fried but the outer layer was not crunchy. What a waste of the fish!
