The establishment in situated on the harbour front overlooking the sea Lages is the whale watching hub of the Island and you can tell they are proud of their heritage. Great care is taken to make the village look its best and it has a completely different feel and look to the other villages on the Island.
The Whale'come ao Pico is a hotel too but we only had lunch here so cannot comment on the accommodation but if it is as good as teh food then you will not be disappointed.
We popped in for lunch and were greeted with a wonderful clean and modern decor, friendly staff and an extensive menu.
We orders Azorean Beef which are large chunks of shin in a cinnamon gravy and potatoes, sounds odd but tasted amazing. The Quiche was made with the tastiest shortcrust pastry I had ever eaten, the quality and value was outstanding and would highly recommend a visit.
