Lots of food

Our family ate at Cais20 twice. First night was great. Our waiter was entertaining. Not knowing the size of the meals, we ordered appetizers first. The garlic bread was so good, as were the yams. Excellent seafood and steaks. A lot of food. We were talked into dessert and shared their cinnamon... read more

Yes, it sounds nice, they pick you up at he hotel. But sorry to say, that´s all! The service is slow and unfriendly, the food is very ordinary. Probably but together to fit a tourist trap. Thera are so many other nice restaurants in Ponta Delgada, no reason to go to this one! But let´s hope they will improve......

We had the seafood and rice hotpot for 40 euros, it was definitely worth the price - a lot of variety and a lot of lobster.. I also recommend 'absurdo' which is local beer (or similar drink) with few shrimps just for 2,5 EURO! Its a perfect place for quality sea food!

This restaurant is one of the best from Azores for seafood. It has a great view over the ocean. The food is great but in my opinion is quite expensive.

The views and the food are very nice. Excellent choice of seafood and fish in many different variations. Definitely worth a try the cinnamon ice cream. A pity for the service that does not seem to take care of customers nor has a sense of time.

Excellent sea food at the water's edge, dramatic view of the roaring Atlantic Ocean. Smoking is allowed though, that might put off some people.

Tour guide recommended this place and dropped us off after our full day tour. We got there around 4:30pm for a late lunch/ early dinner. We sat by the window and watched the spectacular waves during a windy rain storm - the view is amazing so try to go during daylight hours. The wait staff cannot speak English well but... More

I ate a lot of seafood while in Ponta Delgada but nothing as well prepared and unique as Cais 20! The service was literally door to door! We got picked and dropped off at the hotel by restaurant staff so we wouldn't have to drive. Kudos to our hotel staff at Marina Atlantico for arranging it! We had the seafood... More
