Slightly off the beaten path neighbourhood gem

We had walked past this restaurant several times, saw the Tourist Menu sign which I normally find off-putting. After being recommended by our local tour guides, we decided to try it and had a delightful dining experience.

Had a lovely meal here during my stay. The waiting staff were fabulous, very friendly and chatty. The food was nice as was the wine they recommended for us. It was quiet on the night we were there so didn't experience any long wait. There is a small bar next to the restaurant where you can have an aperitif before... More

Friendly staff but most ordinary food. Not worth the price. We waited more than an hour after ordering with little clarification ("two more minutes" - a common lie ment 20 minutes). You find better Portuguese food elsewhere in the town at comparable or lower prices and without the waiting.

The jumbo shrimp sauteed in garlic oil served in individual iron skillets was the most delicious I've ever had! The red snapper dinner was also fresh and delicious. Don't miss this dinner hot spot.

Had dinner here in early, we choose it as the restaurant was close to where we were staying. There was verry little outstanding about this food or service. Sure there is better for the same price

Ate here several times during week long stay. Azorian style beef steak was great. Service was top notch. Price was right. If you are in Ponta Delgada, eat here.

The waiter was very helpful and the food terrific. I had the special of roast pork which came with rice, potatoes and salad while my husband chose sirloin stroganoff... More

O Corisco was recommended by a local. The hotel had given us the wrong location on the map so my friend and I stopped to ask a young couple if they knew where O Corisco was located. They both knew the restaurant and then proceeded to walk us there (a five minute walk!). This gesture typified the kind of graciousness... More

Visited this restaurant when we stopped in port for the day. Only had a beer and a sandwich, but was very nice, bread was lovely. Waiter friendly. We sat outside in the sun. The bar is in a quiet side street away from the crowds. Had a look inside, it's a very nice restaurant. The menu looked good.
