Tasty and cheap

Lots of local dishes to try. It's self service and all you can. Incredibly good value and a good way to try dishes you probably wouldn't order in a restaurant. Deserts were good too at an extra cost of about 2.5 euros. Very friendly and helpful proprietress.

I went here as part of a group but having looked at the prices, it obviously provides great value. Traditional Portuguese food and as much as you can eat with some great desserts. Cosy atmosphere. Very friendly proprietor and within easy walking distance of the ferry terminal. I'd definitely go back.

I like tasting many local dishes and this buffet offered that in one meal, for lunch, at only seven Euros, adding another three Euros for dessert. Mmmm.

Árvore Restaurant is the best place in Faial for traditional azorean food. The menu is varied but allways with a clear "home cooking" feel. The restaurant works with an open table, sel-service, meaning that you can eat as much as you want, second, third and more servings are encourajed by the owner / Chef / Waiter, which is very nice,...

We went here for dinner during low season and I think we were the only 2 customers the nice gentleman had all night. The dinner buffet was a mix of 10 or 12 dishes from beef stew to fish to pork. There is rice and salad too Bread is available as well as several desserts on a separate table. The... More

I stayed three nights in Horta, and I had dinner twice here. This restaurant, placed near the central area of Horta, few walking steps from the marina, is just what you need for having a good and decent dinner in Horta, which is not an easy place where finding good restaurants. This restaurant is a self service, and you can... More

Go for the lunchtime buffet. The Owner is "a character" who loves his work, loves cooking and wants his customers to enjoy what has been prepared. The buffet was a choice of about 10 hot dishes and you can eat as much as you want for 7.50€. Choice of homemade desserts for 2.50€ each. Evenings is again the buffet but... More

This a nice place to go to try some local cuisine. It's like eating at a friend's house, the atmosphere is clean and cute. The meal is 7Euro pp and 2.50 Euro pp for dessert with drinks extra so it's definitely a steal as far as price. The owner is very friendly and explains all the dishes. There isn't many... More

I discovered this restaurant during my second visit in Horta. It is perhaps the best valued reastaurant in town. They serve a la carte for dinner but they are mostly popular for their superb buffet lunch. For 7€ (drinks and sweets not included) a broad choice of meat, fish, stews, vegetables is served. The atmosphere is irresistibly azorean. Recommended
