“Great meal and location”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant on a quiet Sunday night on a recommendation from where we were staying in Faja Grande, the next town. Sadly we were the only customers all evening but that did not detract from the food which was excellent. Shared the usual Azores bread/cheese/jam then for mains we had the roasted tuna and the veal with chestnuts (which seemed more like a slow braised beef to us but it was delicious nonetheless). Shared a dessert and a bottle of Pico wine, think we paid 50 euros including tip. A word of warning about location - unless you have a car plan your transport very carefully. We got a lift there from the owner of our guesthouse but struggled to find a taxi back (they are all in Santa Cruz anyway but all were busy) and ended up getting a lift from some friends of the owners! Definitely give this place a try though if you are on Flores and able to get there.

“Very good food for a decent price”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

We ate twice in this restaurant and we found it very honest with a high value for money. The decoration is nice (I remember an old bedspread very rich with a contemporary look). We loved the grilled fish - really fresh and pricisely cooked. And the views over the ocean at sunset were just perfet.

“Really nice typical restaurant”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

In Flores we had a lot of difficulties to find restaurants. A lot of them were, we thought, too casual or simply didn't look that well. This one wasn't pretentious either but it was a fair price for nice food! The location is really nice, it is obviously a bit far away from everything but that's quite the charm of it too! I really enjoyed this place and its atmosphere! I would definitely do the ride with the car again to come here, it is quite an experience. There was only one waiter though so it didn't go that fast, but it didn't go slower than in any other azorean restaurant. In the Azores, you should keep in mind that the service in restaurant usually takes a while.

“One of the best locations in Europe”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

The restaurant offers a unique scenario on the sunset; be sure to go there in a uncloudy day and to seat outside if possible. The food is great, original, tasty and fairly priced.

“Locals say it's the best on island”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

We visited family in Flores a couple of weeks ago, and everyone was in agreement that this was by far the best place to eat on the island. We agreed completely after a terrific lunch. Everything is locally grown and prepared in an authentic manner. The food was extremely fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is just beautiful, and the decor inviting. Service was wonderful. It was one of the very best meals during our three week visit to 4 islands. Highest recommendations!!
