Food excellent and plentiful. Waitress very good. Went back again on last night as this was the best one that we had been to all week.

We liked O Giros so much that we went back for a second meal. Our first dinner we had mussels as an appetizer. They were so good that we decided to go back and each order mussels for dinner and a tuna salad. Tuna is fresh (not from a can) Everything was delicious. Service was excellent, which I can't say...

We ate here several times as the food and service was very good. I really enjoyed a delicious spaghetti bolognaise, chicken curry whilst my husband had pork and pineapple. Waiting staff very prompt and friendly but special thanks to Andre who told us what it was like to live in the Azore

both the fish and pasta bolognese were excellent. Good prices and on a pedestrian street. You can eat outside.

Service is very good-but do not try anything with Azorean gravy in as very salty. The puds were super.

By coincidence walking around the city found this place. The lunch buffé was only 7 euro and really worth it. Both fish and meat (I preferred the fish). Seems to be a place where locals come in for lunch. Fast efficient service.

Not our first choice for the evening but we walked out of the Restaurant we intended to go to as no one appeared to show us to a table!!! What a good decision it was to come here, I had the Firemans Sausage to start and then we shared Steak on the Stone, absolutely fabulous, the Steak was succulent and... More

We had just arrived in town and were searching for another restaurant...to no avail. [It takes a few days to learn to navigate in the old city!] We were hungry and decided to go into the first place we found. On a weekday in March we were the only early customers in O Giro...but the service and the meal were... More

This little gem was jam packed at lunchtime. It had a tiny buffet and many locals were eating there. My husband even thought that they had some sort of a loyalty card that many were using. We did not have a buffet (we never do) but sampled omelette and calamares fritos. Food was very good. The rice, which looked very... More
