A pleasant surprise.

Looking for somewhere to enjoy an anniversary meal, we decided to take a chance on this restaurant. It was Saturday evening and we were told the only food was a buffet of typical Azorean dishes.

I headed to Sao Jorge for a quick day trip and went around the island. The end of the day my parents and I headed here on the recommendation of our taxi driver. Am I glad he told us about this place! I got the Camarao Bebedo (Drunk Shrimp) and it was not only one of the tastiest meals of... More

We have eaten twice here, as they are not many possibilities in Velas. The service was rather slow, but this was due to the many work for the waiters! We waited the first time a bit long, but they appologized gentely! So no problem at all! The fish was great made! The seafood as well! The meat with cheese on... More

Most of restaurants in Velas were closed on Sunday therefore we stopped here. Not a good idea if you are hungry.. We ordered pasta snd salad to get something quick, but have been waiting hour and a half. This was also the worst dinner we had in Azores.

The clams were served to us and a couple of them were cold I ate them trusting the restaurant would cook a local specialty properly - became quite sick later that evening for over 24 hours. I would stay away, and I don't usually complain about restaurants. We even have it a second chance, I had veg soup which was... More

Appearances are deceptive. Plain exterior but good food served by friendly staff. Lunchtime worth going for the "Pratas da Dia" option comprising soup (excellant) choice of 3 or 4 main courses, coffee and a drink all for 6 euros. Quick service but slow if you choose from the menu.

After some other experiences with the restaurants in Velas we tried this one. We had to wait for ages to be served. We ordered bread and cheese. The cheese was nice but not spectacular as you might expect on São Jorge but the bread was far from fresh. We ordered squid. Well this was the worst squid we ever had.... More

We were two and we had to wait a long while to be served. We ordered a local meat dish, "Alcatra", which was ok and a fish soup, which was really terrible, we even had to send it back to the kitchen.

We had fresh fish that was good. The Tuna dish was very good with a delicious sauce. We ate there twice.
