OK but not the best

Enjoyed eating here, friendly staff and food was acceptable. Price was about average. On the evening we ate here it was frequented entirely by tourists. It was a nice restaurant and the decor was OK. My wife complained that the ladies toilet had been designed by a man.

O Corsico is a great little restaurant on a narrow street one block above and to the left of the city gates plaza. We searched for it a couple of days before finding it...but it was worth the hunt. The food was first quality and the waiters enjoyed using their English skills to joke with these off-season American tourists. A... More

Great service, and great food. We enjoyed the food, and the service, and the price is right. A great place for an authentic Azores meal.

Visited the restaurant during Christmas and rate it overall as a tourist trap. Food average including veggies from freezer. Nicer restaurants nearby.

We had a fantastic experience at this restaurant! We were greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne, and our server assisted us by recommending wine and entrees. The steak was amazing, as were the desserts and wine from Faria's vineyard. The architecture and atmosphere was gorgeous.

Excellent ambiance. Excellent service. Excellent meal. We had noticed this little restaurant in town and planned to go back to have dinner there - and I'm so glad we did! We were welcomed with a complimentary drink. We had so much help from the proprietor in choosing our meals and desserts because we were both interested in tasting local flavours.... More

this nice restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. The staff is very friendly. The menu has a variety of dishes for meat and fish lovers. The cod fish is excellent.
