Good food in the middle of the night

Open late... Very late... Every night. So if you are a night owl you can still get good food after 22:00. Good variety of food from snacks to full meals even in the middle of the night.

A bit overcrowded. The food is definitely good, but nothing special. I've had better. Slow service and not very friendly staff.

among the best venues on Sao Miguel to enjoy local seafood specialties. Had the white grouper, which comes usually frozen in Portugal but is fresh here...wonderful lunch experience at a reasonable price. If possible, try to get tables with ocean view. Highly recommended

The water front location is superb. Our table was right at the window overlooking the ocean. Food was delicious. Our table of 6 ordered both fish and beef. The local wreckfish was very tasty. The cod was flaky. The beef cooked to order perfectly. Silvio our waiter made our evening very enjoyable. He spoke English very well and offered very... More

This place offers a lot of different dishes and delicacies, regional and otherwise, I was recommended to order small amounts of various dishes to try different things, some of which were good, but not above average. It is open until very late, so that can come in handy. I thought it was a bit expensive considering what we ordered. Maybe... More

This restaurant was amazing. We ended up walking their from Sao roque when another restaurant was closed. They were open and welcomed us in. Rui and the other waiter explained the menu and recommended some dishes for us to try. They were very personable and made our dinner enjoyable. Everything was amazing, especially the fried octopus. They then took us... 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

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 a reservation. The view of the sea is awesome (in... More
