Often when we are wanting to go out with friends for the evening, we choose this restaurant for the fresh fish and the hospitality that the cook always gives us. In the end, I think he really does choose the fish, but that is ok, we know it will always be good. He guarantees that there will be no bonés... More

For tourists that are open to explore local neighborhoods, this place is the best! It offers freshest daily catch fish selection that is prepared in front of you with simple yet delicious sides and wines!

Had extreme difficulty finding restaurant particularly as Trip Advisor map is wrong. Restaurants location coordinates are 37.743206,-25.652027. Its at the East end of the town just away from the coast. Having found it we went back again two nights later. The fresh fish was excellent simply grilled. The accompaniments were very simple - boiled potatoes, salad or rice. Desserts were... More

This restaurant was our absolute favorite here on the island. I've already written a review in German, but after four other visits it's time for an English review. That also gives me the opportunity to comment on some of the other reviews here. The interieur of the restaurant is pretty modern, you wouldn't expect that when standing before the building.... More

We were so impressed with our meal here that we went again the next night - only sorry we didn't discover it earler. The surrounding area is not great - we walked there and back both times but if you are of a nervous disposition, you may feel more comfortable in a cab. You turn up and head upstairs (the... More

The grilled fish here is amazing, fresh and served with no fish-bones. The owner is very nice and funny. I recommend this restaurant.

This great bright and airy Portuguese seafood restaurant in Ponta Delgada sits on a second floor over a bar, but creates a new meaning for the words "fresh fish". You can order either from a menu with pictures of a huge variety of fresh seafood or step to the rear of the restaurant and pick out your own from the... More

If you want fish and only fish this is the place to go. The mustached man cooking seems to be a true fisherman. Anything else on the menu is cooked from frozen.

This is one of the best seafood restaurants in Ponta Delgada, and this is saying a lot for the island of Sao Miguel where even the smallest cafés serve the freshest catch of the day without fault. You choose your own fish out of what is available, as it is laid out on ice at the corner of the dining... More
