Had a bruschetta trio (3 different pieces w. 3 topping combos), eggplant cannelloni main, wife had risotto, tomato compote salad. All things were delicious and well presented. Also had the local Sauvignon blanc and it was also pretty good, not amazing but... More

Traveling as a vegan is not without its challenges (I typically bring food with me!), so when I find a vegetarian restaurant it's a real treat.

While the food is great in the Azores, there aren't many vegetables so to come across this little gem was a treat! Thanks Cape Cod couple for recommending it. The atmosphere is quaint, staff friend and of course the food was great. Too bad we discovered it at the end of the trip.

My wife and I are not vegetarians, but we enjoyed our delicious meals, each bite bursting with flavors that we couldn't help ourselves from eating at the restaurant 3 consecutive nights. We felt at home, the staff was terrific, friendly, honest and knowledgeable, the wine list was excellent. The entire experience was wonderful, together we had 6 entrees, all fantastic,... More

This is a spot you don't want to miss. The dishes are amazingly prepared being a tribute to taste. All the rooms make you feel like you're at home, with shelters full of imagination. Even non vegetarian will find it amazing. Enjoy!

Quirky Restaurent. Town house converted to a restaurant on ground floor. Need to book in high season. Good food & wine. Would recommend even if not a veggie.
