We walked up to the Vigia da Baleia and decided to lunch here on the way back... We enjoyed it so much that we came back for the following two nights and always had different dishes and desserts and we loved all of them. The owner is another Italian, very nice person. The selection of the house as an entree... More

Really nice place, with mostly vegetarian cuisine made with fresh ingredients! I went there for dinner with my partner and we both really enjoyed the food, the place and the service! The owner is a really nice lady from Italy (like us) and it has been really nice talking to her. I really recommend it!

The only restaurant in the Azores where you can eat some healthy and vegetarian food! Sometimes you can get also meat or fish, it depends if any cow has been recently killed or any fisherman went to catch any fish, but for sure you won't get any frozen food! The menu include also some oriental dishes, we where very happy... More

The restaurant is owned by an Italian lady but the food is far far away from Italian standards. It is mainly a vegetarian restaurant (so if you are vegetarian you may like it) but my low rating is not related to this. If served in Italy most of the food would be returned back to the chef. Considering the average... More

The first night in Faja Grande we went to this restaurant. It's located in a small cosy house in the outskirts of the village. The interior is also very nice. But it stops there! The service was very slow and not very welcoming. We ordered pancakes as out first course. We got some tiny "things" which looked like an old... More

we went to this place following the enthusiastic reviews. The place is indeed nice and cosy, but the food is quite disappointing. First of all, almost everything on Flores is bio, so not a big deal; second, the food was really basic and overpriced (eg a small bowl of soup made of carrot and cabbage and probably nothing else costs...

A small place where the owner serves mainly vegetarian food of really good quality. We came here 2 nights in a row and had great food both times. If you are on the island you must visit.

I ate here three nights in a row (there aren't many places to choose from, but even so, this place really stood out). Monica is a very welcoming host, who does everything, from showing you to your table, to taking your order, to cooking your meal and doing the washing up! Italian influenced cooking with local ingredients - exceptionally fresh... More

This was the really best restaurant we had in Azores! Only fresh & local products, all was very fresh, it was perfect! We went twice, and you should taste the "segreto di dama", so great desert!
