my 2nd time in this popular place which isnot in Angra (20km in Altares) and I was a bit surprise reading the menu that they practically almost doubled the prices since 2013 (the kebap stick was 11€ last year, this year 18€!!!) but nothing has improved: service is still slow (it took 20min to bring us "Aceitonas preto" which were not black but green (the small ones) though very good.

What I really don't understand is why they are - compared to usual Portugese habits - extremely stingy with side dishes. Our 18€ Filet stick had excellent Angus beef but it was a spoonful rice and a handful french fries (which looked like from McDonald's I suppose not homemade) - no vegetables. I'd expect more for 18€ guys!!

The waiter brought a (small!!!) salada mista (charged extra 1,5€) by my request. Also the doce vinagrete (?) was very nice but sooooo small. I really don't understand? "Material" prices are low also on the island....

If I ever return to Tereceira, I'd NOT return to this place even the meat is excellent.

This local village restaurant has old world charm. The furnishings are Azorian antiques. They raise their own beef. The angus steak hanging on a skewer with herb butter is amazing . Also the squid in garlic is fantastic . It's unusual to find such a nice restaurant is a small village .

The Black angus steak is AMAZING! and so is the beef kabob (comes on a metal skewer and once they set it up at your table they wrap a dollop of butter onto the still blazing hot metal so it melts and drips down over your steak and makes it OH SO YUMMY!). I love going in the warmer weather and eating in the courtyard because WHY NOT! it's a beautiful area and when the mimosa tree is blooming it smells heavenly.
