The views, huge menu, wide assortment of local wines and friendly service sell this place. OK, it's a tourist restaurant, but it has good food, large portions, a killer location and helpful, fun staff. It's a Must Visit in the area.

It is a good place for a snack or to make a complete meal. The menu is huge with local and also international options. We've proved local dishes: boiled shrimp (the dish is called "absurd", which includes half a dozen shrimp and a beer for 2.5 euros); Grilled Mussels (magnificent); Black pudding with pineapple (amazing) and fried yam with villain...

Decent food, but the view of the ocean really sells this restaurant. Aim for a table by the window to feel the breeze in your face and really enjoy the ocean. Very helpful wait-staff. Great experience overall.

The seafood here is absolutely tasty and fresh. The grilled octopus was the best I have eaten. Service was very good too and the staff would accommodate any request you had, which is the reason for me giving it only four stars as they allowed other patrons to smoke even in non smoking areas. This would not have bothered me... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch, having seen it in our visitors map. It is a little out of Ponta Delgada but a nice 20 minute walk along the sea front to it. We received a very warm welcome on arrival and was given a lovely table over looking the sea. The waitress who was very attentive, helpful and friendly... More

This is a restaurant that gave us mix feelings.... Very interesting sea view (keep in mind when booking that it is only available in the smoking zone - that actually smells a lot to smoke ....). In the menu one can find a huge variety of regional and international dishes and the wine menu is very complete. In the menu... More

Amazing view, amazing food, slightly pricey. And sympathy reins there! We had seafood, Cracas and Clams for a light lunch, all very very fresh. Both of us enjoyed a lot. I also noted that other people having lunch there were enjoying a lot their meals. Most we're having seafood as starter, then Swordfish as main dish. Everybody was loving there.... More
