“One of the most authentic restaurants on the Azores”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

To enjoy the typical Azorean food, there is no better place as Saca-Rolhas.
It's a very cosy restaurant nearby the ocean, frequented bij the locals. Also a lot of famous Azorians like to eat here. Fernando, the boss, is passionated about food and wine. A real professional. Kitchen and everything is very clean. Fantastic peixe del dia (fish of the day) with a good glass of white wine from Pico. What can one wish more ?

“Simply the best”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We have eaten twice at Saca_Rolhas in Telva. Lunch with different cheeses and omelet. We returned for dinner and were served a great appetizer with cheese, ham and bread. The main cource was a perfect fried veal steak with garlic and lemon. The wine too could not have a better choise from the owner. We got a first-class serving from start to end. Starting with a muscatel ande ending with a local liqueur after your choise. We have eaten at many excelent restaurants in Saö Miguel - but none as good af this. Try it !

“Best on Sao Miguel”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Do you enjoy your food experience as much as your travel experience? If you are one of the food lovers - that place is for you! Completely out of the tourist path. One of the freshest secluded seafood on the island. Great dinner experience! With good wine selection (even green wines on the menu). The owner/ waiter was very pleasant, attentive and suggested best from the daily catch. A must!!

“Mandatory visit”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Of you want to try local cuisine, with fresh fish, excellent wine choice and a Chef (Fernando) that knows well his business, than you must visit this restaurant. Liked the entries (cheese and local meat) and had tuna fish that was quite marvelous.

“Absolutely Brilliant - Do not miss this place”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

We found this restaurant by accident as we were walking from Porta Delgarda to Relva via the coastal road. What a find!!!! We just went there for a beer to start as we were quite tired but from the look of the menu we decided to book a table for that evening.

My husband had mackerel to start and i went for the smoked ham!! What a delight. Then we went for the Rice with shrimp, never to be forgotten. It was unlike anything we have ever had and there was so much of it. There was 6 different types of fish as well as shrimp and it was served with the delight of Fernando. The wine was excellent as well and complimented the whole meal. It also wasn't that expensive. We had such a great time we went back again the day afterwards.

And that was just as memorable. I would urge you all to go and visit Fernando and his wife (the chef) and experience a fantastic meal. No wonder the locals flock to it
