Good food, good setting, good service

We went twice, concentrating on seaffod (superb shellfish starters - try the garlic 'shrimps' or prawns as the English would call them, the fresh tuna steaks which weere the best we'd ever tasted, and the crab). Service was friendly and informative. You can eat more cheaply in Ponta Delgada, but... read more

Generous portions of seafood near the cruise port-- children's portions with soup, main entree and dessert were unbelievable. Swordfish was also an excellent choice. Ambiance and service were excellent. We appreciated that they were open on Mardi Gras Tuesday.

We had tuna steak that was simply great - both the one we ordered well done as well as their standard medium. The staff was very friendly.

This place is great for a "social" meal, a lovely atmosphere and a fantastic menu! We went here on consecutive nights and sampled contrasting but excellent food and drink. On the first occasion we went for "Paella and Sangria" ( I know not very Azorian!) as we wanted something reasonably light. The Paella was as good as I had anywhere... More

Yum! Yum! Yum! A great dinner with great Sangria. Thought the Sangria was a bit pricey but it complemented the great dinner and company.

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.
