Greatest food on Sao Miguel

We stayed on Sao Miguel for a week and enjoyed some great food. But nothing was as good as the fish stew and cinnamon ice cream at Cais 20. We wish we could give them six stars!!!

Great atmosphere, great fresh seafood, and tremendous service await u at Cais 20. The menu is vast and the quality superb. From start to finish, Cais 20 delivered. The fresh clam starter, followed up by fried octopus and assorda were to die for. Looking around at what other tables ordered have me thinking of a way to come back before... More

We liked this place a lot, but it was overpriced for what you got. Nothing particularly innovative here, but it is clearly popular with locals, and the food is very good quality and delicious. We loved out waiter, Silvio. One nice perk is that they will pick you up and drop you back off at your hotel, which is quite... More

It was amazing place for dinner. The restaurant can suggest you a dozen delicious dishes like fresh seafood (octopus, lobsters, shrimps, etc), meat and side dishes. We tried seafood and it was perfect. A car from the restaurant can pick you up and take you back to your hotel - it's complimentary.

This restaurant had a service that picked you up at your hotel and took you home, so I was expecting a tourist trap. Boy, was I wrong as I probably had the best steak of my life. Service was friendly and helpful. Food was not that expensive and I really enjoyed it.

Not a cheap restaurant. Free parking for cars. Smoking and non-smoking spaces. Very nice staff. More expensive than other restaurant fish and wine. 5 minutes ride from the center of Ponta Delgada. Excellent fish.

This restaurant was suggested by our hotel and what a great suggestion it was! I ordered the octopus fried with potatoes, peppers and onions. It was perfectly seasoned and the most tender octopus I've ever eaten. And such a large portion! My husband's squid kabobs looked equally delish. I was lucky enough to steal a bite and it tasted as... More

We ate here on our first night on the basis of a recommendation from our Guest House. We chose 2 fish from the ice display at the front door. Served in foil with a medley of vegetables. Most enjoyable. Appetisers of Garlic Bread and chicken wings were enjoyed, washed down with a nice bottle of Terras de Lava. Good value... More

Service was very good, and based on the recommendations we got for this restaurant from multiple sources, it delivered! My plate was full of some of the largest mussels I've ever seen, and the vegetable sides were superb. The atmosphere is nice, busy but not too loud at lunch, and the view of the waves is hypnotic. Some menu items... More

Best dish choices of fresh fish on the island of Sao Miguel. We have been here twice recently and each time the service , food and ambiance is great. If you go at 7pm before the locals, you can enjoy the ocean view side with out a smoker nearby.
