Nothing like a welcome drink!

Very reasonable prices. Very good food. Very attentive wait staff. Let the wait staff choose your wines they will not steer you wrong.

Warm welcome by waiters, with a free glass of sparkling wine, pate and bread. Very well informed staff who guided us well on wine and the choice of food. Friendly and happy staff, wish we had found this place on our first night rather than the last night. 10/10 for everything .

My wife and I visited this restaurant on March 28. The waiter pushed us into what turned out to be a mediocre inclusive fish dinner. Service was not attentive. We would not return.

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.
