Point at fish and eat

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... read 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

This restaurant was recommended by a local and what a gem we found. The fish was so fresh and tasty it tasted like lobster. I'm not kidding. The owner is also very friendly and very playful with our kids. Price is average for this location. Highly recommend.

Absolutely AMAZING fish. Very welcoming wait-staff and the owner(?) who prepares the fish himself is very helpful and funny. Fantastic restaurant and I would visit again in a heartbeat.

Fresh fish but it didn't taste anything. The vegetables that were served with it were overcooked. Friendly atmosphere can't compensate for booring food.

It's located in a bad area of the outskirts of Ponta delgada, and in the lower floor there is a small bar but after you climb the stairs the environment changes. A big room, very sunny and spacious with the grills and the ever present owner in the back. It's amazing how does not smell fried fish in the restaurant... More

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
