Great food and reasonably-priced!

Mariserra is delicious... as a fish and seafood lover, I can tell you that here you will get all of that at it's top freshness and perfect serve! Try the typical: octopus, grilled ocean fresh fish, the amazing limpets! The charcoal grilled meats are a surprise too! If you are in Ponta Delgada... read more

I would not be in a hurry to come back .On arrival the welcome was nonexistent ,very brusque service ,the monkfish with pasta dish had about six pieces of monkfish in total . At the end of the meal two bottles were plonked on the table by way of a complimentary digestive ,one bore a close resemblance to "moonshine "... More

The food was excellent - fresh and very tasty. We ate fish with a very creamy rice. Wow! The service was also very friendly. Worth a visit.

Car service was provided to and from our hotel to dinner. The view overlooks the sea, you can eat outside or in. The food is local and fresh, farm to table or sea to table. There was a good selection of local wines, the menu was typical of the Portuguese area and cooked to perfection. The dinner was followed by... More

After a wonderful tour of the city our driver took us to this fine local restaurant "Mariserra". We ordered a fish dinner which contained (4) different kinds of local fish, a pot of rice & veggies, and a plate of vegetables. Well, we could not get enough of this delicious meal. The plate was cleaned. Well, we did leave some... More

Do try all the three restaurants in this area. GALEGO for their meat. MARISERRA for seafood and - ARROZ TAMBORIZ - seafood cooked in rice. The portions are very big , so just order for one person. Don't forget to try CAIS 20 too, close by. All three restaurants are 10 minute walk from Ponta Delgada town.

Fresh fish and seafood, salad and veg, gorgeous home made bread and cheese with amazing famous piquant red pepper sauce for starter. Good prices, fab local wine from the island of Pico (apparently some of the best in Portugal). Big portions, definitely recommend it and book or go early as it gets crowded.

This brightly lite place isn't for a romantic dinner, but for great seafood, it's a good place Two of us had Salmon, huge portion, grilled, side potatoes and steamed veggies. Others had Hake, which is kind of like fish-sticks, but flakey and good. Salad was big enough to share.
