“Can"t believe so well rated”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We ordered fish of the day as recommended by owner/waiter . Long time in coming , the restaurant seemed to be run by just one man doing everything . Very earnest in efforts but foods was really diisaapointing compatred to other restaurants on Horta . Large portions , too over facing . Veg totally bland and overcooked ,fish very bony , if properly filleted it would have helped .
Offered a liquor to finish , waited ages for it to surface .
One man trying to do too much .
It was not an expensive meal but I would not go there again .

“Great birthday dinner”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

We went to Capitolio to celebrate birthday dinner and didn't have to regret. We were early enough to get a table without reservation. To start with we took Ameijoas Bulhao Pato, very tasty traditional mussels. The waiter kindly showed us from a book the different fishes that we could choose from for our main course. Our choice, red fish Cantaro, grilled, was the best fish we ate in the Azores. Accompanied by Pico white wine Frei Gigante, excellent. For dessert we had homemade icecream, more like parfait, delicious. To finish the meal,our waiter offered us bagacos (eau de vie) with our espressos. We really enjoyed our dinner.

“Truly Enjoyable”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Had a wonderful evening here. Two young men working were extremely helpful and spoke excellent English. Food was delicious and portion sizes very large. Recommend you order the fish of the day - fresh catch. 5 stars from us. Reasonable prices. Good service.

“Great food, efficient service, OK atmosphere”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

The value-for-money equation is terrific. The fish we had was just off the boat, substantial, and well prepared, with abundant sides. Nothing fancy, just good ingredients thoughtfully prepared. The wine is local and not expensive. We were even offered, gratis, tastes of four different local liqueurs. Service was in English, and the offerings were well explained -- esp. the fish. An ocean guide was used. Easy to find, right downtown. The presence of several locals was a good sign.

“Very delicious meat”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

We went here based on the TripAdvisor reviews since they appeared to be more accurate than our guide. Again we were satisfied. Very tasty steak, delicious mushroom sauce and some fresh vegetables. We were completely full when we left.
