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

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
