this is a very tiny restaurant that is only open for lunch and it is so inexpensive. sandwiches can cost as low as $1.95 Euro. Best deal for your Euro!!!

Went here to try some local dishes. Fully satisfied with the food. Staff with great sense of humour. Had black sausage with pineapple for a starter, and that was really tasty. Sirloin steak served with a fried egg, French fries (and the smallest salad ever seen) for the main, and that was an OK dish. Got a nice place in... More

One of our first and best meals that we had in Ponta Delgada,we received an "on the house" drink as soon as we sat down and with a very friendly and helpful waiter had a wonderful meal. We both had Fish and we were not disappointed-excellent!

We found this restaurant two years ago and returned to it on this visit. The staff are very helpful and friendly. They even remembered us from our previous visit and knew when it was. The food is good and reasonably priced. Will definitely return if we visit Ponta Delgada again.

On the way back to our Hotel, we stopped for a breather, looked at the menu and were a little concerned that a server might have "Roped us in" - NOT AT ALL> We were seated, chose a light bite for 1, and an entree for the other - no pressure, but GREAT discussion of the menu, what they offered...

The tourist menu is great value although to be honest I didn't find it as tasty as I thought? Perhaps it's just my taste buds but I find the food under seasoned ? The service though an it's location an atmosphere made it worth a visit an I would go back.

We visited this restaurant 3 times, its great value, the staff are very welcoming and helpful and the food is wonderful. We visited some restaurants again as on our first visit we had such a great time. This was the only restaurant that the service and food were consistent. The restaurant offers a tourist offer - 15 Euros for soup... More

Excellent food, even better service. The outside is very unassuming but it's pretty fancy on the inside. We got the 4-course tourist menu and we were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and incredibly helpful. I would definitely recommend it!

Stopped here because it always seemed busy (usually a good sign) and they had an interesting "tourist" menu, similar to a table d'hote back home (the waiter laughingly assured me that it was also available to locals). We did not see this elsewhere in the Azores. For a fixed 15 Euros each, you get a soup to start, your choice... More
