Killing time between flights.

We had about four hours until departure to Boston. Took a taxi from the airport to town. The driver suggested a couple places - and we went to Cais 20. Great service. My wife had the octopus (served whole) with excellent roasted potatoes; very good dish. I had the house steak; it was tender... read more

This place was packed and reservations are needed. Wait staff friendly and the food, giant gambas and foil cooked vegetables were outstanding. I saw towers of gorgeous seafood and I am sure they were fresh and delicious as they were devoured. The view is also great. Try to get a table by the window... such a sight.

Food was good, service was good. Nothing on the bright of bad side to mention. The only thing is the smoking place which happens to be the entire terrace. Food could be less oily I think. Price good too.

Even late in the night you can have a great white grouper's cataplana!! Combined with a nice service staff makes you want to be late for dinner ;)

The food here was amazing! We ordered the seafood rice by our waiter's recommendation and it did not disappoint! The view out to the water was lovely. We asked if they could call us a taxi, and they had a courtesy bus and drove us back to our hotel! We will definitely be going back!

During my families trip to the Azores we went to Cais20 three times. Two of the times the service was great. My brother got ill (had nothing to do with the food) and they drove him back to the hotell for free (just pure good will). The food was really good. The Swordfish perhaps was cooked 30 seconds to long.... More

It is a place with very good food. A bit pricey but worth for the quality of the food. It is also one of the few places that have meals until late hours. If it is your first time in the city it is worth the visit.

Went for a caldeirada, was told that it would have at least 5 differnent types of fish in it. When we started to eat it we found out that it was 90% potato and two types of fish. We complained but to no avail. You can buy a lot of potatos for 40 euros.
