We went here just for a snack and ended up enjoying their grilled "lampas" (limpets) a kind of shells that used to be poor man's food once. Now they taste lovely with oil and garlic, almost like French escargots. Heaven with green or red wine. We had some good local cheese on the side (Sao Jorge). My wife had a... More

The Marina is a beautiful part of the Harbour with restaurants and shops around it. The shops have local souvenirs which are well worth visiting.

We had wonderful fish soup at O Marineiro. We had other dishes that were good, one of which was not to our taste. Service was excellent when they were not too busy, but it slowed considerably when they were crowded. There were only two waiters for the entire restaurant. Both were pleasant.

The restaurant was recommended to us by staff at our hotel and we were not disappointed. Very good selection of fish and seafood and the portions were very generous. Nice location by the water too.

We have been touring all over for a week now and my favorite meal was here. Also, the best potatoes I've had. Cooked just right, nicely carved into a barrel shape common to much of the island, and a wonderful saffron color.

We found this restaurant very close to our cruise ship and were pleased with the freshness of our meal and how tasty it was. I got to pick out the fish I wanted to be grilled as it was on display on ice. There service was as good as the meal.

Like a few other reviewers, we found the location great, the food very good but the service was just average, which was a shame.

I had two meals there. The location is perfect, prices are reasonable and food is good. Especially if you are looking for fresh sea food than you should consider visiting this place. But the service could be improved. I was left waiting for a few times during my visit. They have a lot of waiters and for every meal somebody... More
