This was a cozy little restaurant downtown that was recommended to us by the hotel staff. We really enjoyed the large, tasty serving of Pampo - a fish with which I was not familiar. The service was attentive and the menu was clear and precise. It seemed like a family place, it was busy and there was lots of talking... More

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.

We arrived around 6 PM and the restaurant was empty. My husband ordered the calamari and I had a local red fish, both were very good. The fish was served whole, with bones and head. The vegetables were overcooked, but it was nice to have something served with the entree. There were rice and potatoes as well. Our meals were... More

I had read many reviews raving about the squid served in this restaurant. I actually thought it was a little chewy but the meal overall was very good. My partners steak dish was excellent. Staff very attentive

We were early, no reservation, but no problem getting a table. I found our waiter to be very friendly and spoke English perfectly. I had the beef on a stick (kebob) with pineapple and my son had a beef & mushroom dish. Both were very good. Prices were reasonable.
