Ponta Delgada is a seafood lover's paradice so one expects fresh fish and molluscs everywhere. Cais 20 exceeds this expectation by the variety of offerings, the service, ambiance, and an excellent local wine list. Cais 20 is about 10 minutes drive from downtown and very popular with locals so make... read more

It doesn't promise anything from the outside and it is tucked away but you must eat here! Anything from the sea served in their true flavours, good wine and service just makes you go very quiet :). The only sad thing about this gem? It is just too far away from where we live.

Disagreeable Waiter spoilt the whole meal. I most definitely ordered a different meal from my husband, but two of the same was served to us. I did not wish to see waste so I ate it. Briefly he did offer to fetch me my original order, but by then I would have been eating alone. He knew he had messed... More

Enjoyed this experience enough to try it more than once. There are so many choices on the menu, it was difficult to try a lot of things in one visit. The regional steak was delicious- it melted in my mouth. The portions were very generous and one entree could easily feed two (with appetizers and the wonderful garlic bread). Appetizers... More

We went there because a friend recommended us, and despite being a seafood restaurant I think the slightly higher prices. The view is fantastic, the food is great and the service too, but although seafood is normally expensive, the starters and the deserts were ridiculously overpriced. We had the fish soup and the beef chateaubriand which were both very good!... More

Right on the water. A great view. We enoyed watching the running on the walking path just outside of the window. A few people arrived that way. When we first arrived we thought that it looked like a typical NewEngland tourist seafood restaurant.. So wrong about that when it came to food. I had wreck fish, which is native here,... More

Enjoyed our experience very much, food was great and so was our waiter. I have seen reviews saying it was over priced but I disagree. Tried the local clams and all I can say is OMG!!! We went back for more. We couldn't eat all that we got....luckily our hotel had mini frigs in the rooms to store it. So... More

This is a nice place but the food is over priced for what you get. It is right on the water so the view is nice but not worth the extra money. I had seafood and had indigestion for a couple of hours afterwards,no problem at any of the other places I went to. Not sure why, but I will... More

Having spent 3 days wandering the island, we opted to go to dinner in town, and the hotel staff recommended going to Cais 20. Let's just say that we were blown away by how good everything was. We had the standalone veggies, chicken, and garlic bread for apps and the octopus between the two of us. Let's just say that... More
