This restaurant was recommended by local, if locals dine here it must be good, and it was. The service was quick and our waiter was very attentive even on a very busy Saturday night. Really enjoyed all of our dishes we had the codfish, steak and octopus. Prices are reasonable overall experience was very good and would return.

Good food, good price, very friendly waiter. They have a tourist translated menu in multiple languages. If you know Portuguese, take the portuguese menu, cause it has extra items, not on the translated menu.

Two very good meals at Restaurant Nacional Staff friendly and efficient and tolerated my poor Portuguese although they spoke perfect English to others. Good quality food well cooked. Good local (Pico) wines. Great cheese with banana for desert. I love the serving of "quejo fresco" (white goats cheese) with a spicey pepper sauce as an appetiser - appears to be... More

We ate here one night and both of us had fish. The meal was ok, a little over cooked and very typical of what we could get at pretty much any of the seafood restaurants in town. Prices seemed average for this type of restaurant.
