A outstanding place to dine for fish lovers

This was the best meal I had during my two week stay on the Island. The food was unbelievable, and the staff amazing. Thank you Nuno for making it such an enjoyable evening.

Family of 9 decided to have fish for dinner at "Delícias do Mar". The meal as fabulous but we made a huge mistake by not asking the price first and terefore we paid the most expensive meal of the holiday! Excelente qualidade de peixe, mas a refeição mais cara das nossas férias! Acima de 20 Euros pp Familia Alves, Almeida... More

We decided to go to this restaurant based on other review. We were not disappointed! We arrived at the restaurant at 6:15 because the taxi driver told us it opened at 6pm. When we walked in, the owner said we open at 7. I told him our driver had given us the wrong time. He then proceeded to open the... More

This spot was suggested by our tour guide and we likely wouldn't have found it otherwise. I glad we did! It is a very simple place with a mustachioed chef who looks like he could have spent the day out at sea just to catch your dinner. Fish is displayed in a case packed in ice and is incredibly fresh.... More

We wandered into this restaurant after the trip advisor reviews and our tour guide also suggested it. If the locals love it, it's always good to give it a try. On a quiet street on a Tuesday evening we found this place, no one was inside and going into the front door there were a couple of people watching a... More

This place is just on the outskirts of the eastside of town on a street parallel to the main highway in town! It was a long walk from our hotel, but absolutely worth the trip! Make this a must stop, maybe even more than once!

Quiet neighborhood, off the beaten path, but worth the trip. Upon entering we questioned if we were in the right place. We were directed to a table upstairs, where we entered a very clean and informal dining area. We were then directed to choose our fish for dinner. We were taken to a cooler full of iced down fresh fish.... More

A local resident suggested us this restaurant for good fresh fish and we were satisfied. We had a car, so it was not difficult to find it: it is just out of the town centre, 5 min from Ponta Delgada eastbound (towards Lagoa) on a road along a canal. Up the stairs, you are welcomed to choose your own fish... More
