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

Cais 20 is a Portugese restaurant located right on the Atlantic Ocean. The tables have a beautiful beach view. The service is beyond excellent. They pick you up and drop you off to from your hotel to the restaurant. The staff is super friendly and attentive. The fish is fresh and tasty. I tried the clams which were fresh as... More

Rui Medeiros from Azores Private Tours , took us to this place after I asked him that we would like to experience the local flavours of this beautiful island . We arrived at about 3.00 and the place was already busy with locals . We were certainly not disappointed at all with the large menu , the service was fast... More

Cais 20 was recommended as a lunch stop on our day long tour of the island. Wow, we loved this place. We picked the fish from the display of fresh catch on ice at the front of the restaurant. The server took the fish to the kitchen to cook up. Both were fantastic as was the side of grilled vegetables... More

We should have know it was going to be a special dinner when we realized that the driver who picked our party of 6 up from the hotel was also our waiter for the evening...but it was when he brought the raw, fresh fish to our table to choose our own entrees that I truly understood what kind of night...

Allow fifteen minutes just to read through the menu! It's quite large. The location is away from downtown, although we did walk the 40 minutes to it since the walk was along the water. Our hotel had also called ahead to reserve a table with a view for us. My son had razor clams, my husband had fried octopus and... More
