On arrival we were presented with a welcome drink at the restaurant. After the table being indicated, it was with a lighted candle and a flower. Very nice touch. The service was always very professional and attentive. Menu was readily available, with the restaurant to 60%. Ambient sound to a very acceptable volume that can have a conversation without shouting.... More

We ate here twice, indoor seating only, as there is no outdoor space, but we didn't mind, although it does make it a quieter restaurant. Very jolly waiters who engaged well with the children. Food varied and effeciaent service. Nice little free aperitif to start with too. The only little downside was the tv......nightmare for a family meal (although some... More

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.
