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.

We had a very late lunch on September 23rd. Luanna, our waitress, was wonderful! She spoke excellent English and made our meal memorable. My husband was desperate for some vegetables. She ordered them for us in the kitchen and we ate two large servings of the most delicious roasted vegetables I have ever had. She also served us samples of... More

This place have some serious seafood and we found it from an outdated restaurant guide. We were there early for dinner and catch the beautiful scene. We ordered this local lobster and a seafood rice, with an appetizer and everything was SO yummy!! I love the seafood rice and tried it here in the states, and wanted to order the... More

Venturing a bit further from our local eateries, we were recommended to try Cais 20. We had an excellent table overlooking the sea and the service was excellent, as was the food. But the bacalau (fish stew fro 2 people) we chose was nearly twice as expensive as that served in other restaurants. Otherwise, we were quite content with this... More

Pick a fish to have cooked from the ice in front of the store, get the giant prawns, or ask for a vegetarian dish in foil. Don't miss the deep fried name which a root veggie like yucca with a lovely intense tomato salsa. The desserts are really yummy too. If you want to park in their very small lot,... More

We were here in June also and this little gem by the sea never fails. They will even pick you up and return you to your hotel for free. By Ponta Delgada standards its not cheap but well worth the cost {60 to 85 Euros average}. Service and food don't disappoint. Hope Silvio is your server.

It's an excellent choice if you want to eat something different. Ranging from snails to king crab, crocodile meat or fish egg sallad, they have everything, and most of all rarely is sold out. They have a lot of space, so this won't be a problem. About parking it may be a problem, since they have few spots available in... More
