Great after hour food

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.

I really enjoy fine food, ambiance and great service. This restaurant was the best on my 11 day trip. So much so I ate 4 dinners there. They will pickup and drop you at your hotel for no fee. It is not hard to find as it is adjacent to the huge rock just off the shore in the city.... More

This place was great! The service was understandably slow when we dined considering it was extremely busy. The food was very much worth the wait!My wife and I shared the cold shrimp plate with the local Especial beer and an order of Lapas. The shrimps were huge and salted with just enough attention. The beers were ice cold and washed... More

My family and I went to Cais 20 on the recommendation of our Concierge. A great choice! With beautiful views of the ocean, great service and wonderful food we thoroughly enjoyed it. They even picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. While the decor was very plain, it did not detract from the experience. We recommend it... More

We live in the Azores and know what good seafood is like and priced. Cais 20 is "no big deal" except for the view from the smoking section (typical of Europe and Portugal. We ordered, lapas(tough and over garlicked) the chicharros (poorly fried), bread butter...ahhh ok, the caracois were good but small portion. The seafood and rice was served in... More

We had a great dinner here on our first night on Sao Miguel. We had a traditional portuguese dish of shellfish and rice. The food was delicious, the wait staff friendly and the view beautiful. It was a perfect introduction to our week on the incredible island of Sao Miguel.

The grilled octopus was so tender and delicious, the best so far in Azores/Portugal. Also to Mussels Escabeche was the best preparation on mussels I have ever had and I have had them alot! The service was friendly and efficient. The overall menu is quite extensive. Highly recommend oh and there is a view as well.
