A Perfect Dining Experience!

My wife and I arrived in Punta Delgada this morning on the red eye (a flight extended by three hours on the runway due to ice delays) and after spending the day getting the lay of the land we went to Rotas to get in line at 630 (they open for dinner at 7) based on the great reviews on... read more

I didn't expect much of a vegetarian restaurant in a city/area that prides itself on beef and fish. I was pleasantly surprised! I had the seitan steak and it was fantastic. Service was good, but could have been faster. I do wish they took credit cards - a lot of places say they do and then don't. But, the food... More

This little restaurant is a gem. We loved the vegetarian fair, each day a different menu of lovingly prepared and well balanced dishes for the discriminating palate, complemented by generous teapots of hot local tea. The atmosphere is informal, enhanced by an eclectic and colourful decor, including grandmother's china cabinet and an ultramodern coffee machine. The staff is young, friendly... More

I am not a vegetarian by any stretch of the imagination, but after reading the reviews, we decided to give it a try. Very glad we did! The food and service was excellent!

Charming atmosphere and staff. The food was delicious. Your non-vegetarian friends will enjoy it, too! They have an incredible chocolate cake. This was a nice change from the standard traditional Azorean fare that is most common in Ponta Delgada.

I dragged my husband to a vegetarian restaurant but he was more than satisfied. He started with the cheese fondue and it was big enough for sharing. He followed that with a second appetizer- Brie and pear samosas. His eyes sparkled at the delicious taste combinations. I had a rosemary and chestnut risotto which was very good but I wished...

We booked for a late sitting and glad we did due to its popularity. We got a little lost finding this restaurant but a kind local couple took pity on us and gave us a lift to the door. I have to confess I am not a vegetarian, nonetheless this was a great meal. The surroundings are a little eclectic... More

Lunch time is always full with local people looking for a nice meal for a very reasonable price... they offer the tea to go with the meal but the wines are also special. At night it is a lovely place to stay and enjoy home made vegetarian food!!!

It's not easy to find a vegetarian meal in the Azores, and that's one of the reasons Rotas is full every day of the week. Booking in advance is the only way to get a table for dinner.
