Brest place to have a drink or 5

Me and my coworkers seam to find ourselves here all the time when we are in the Azores. The waitstaff and bartenders are excellent. They play live music on Saturdays. Everything from Jerry Lee Lewis to the song zombie. Something for everybody. The drinks are reasonably priced. One of the few places... read more

I wouldn't recomend this restaurant... The lapas and the shrimp for starters were quite ok, but the rest was awful. The espetada (fish and shrimps on a stick) were very bad, the fish was not fresh (probably just dried codfish) and the shrimps were so small you could barely see them. When they gave us the recipe they "miscalculated" and... More

This hotel recommendation was just ok. The decor is modern and elegant and they had great live music the night i was there. Not the loud live music, but a wonderful backdrop to our dinner. Our waiter was fine - perhaps new to his role. He forgot our order of clams, and the second order of garlic bread was delivered... More

We went fishing on an excursion and the tour guide recommended that we take the freshly caught fish to this restaurant to cook it for us. They cooked a barracuda and a mackerel and the results were fantastic. In fact, the mackerel was by far the best I've ever had. They even brought out some potatoes for us as well.... More

We have chosen Conves for its wonderful position on the hotel but we didn't know anything about the quality of food...so we were surprised by the flavour of every dish we tried. A very beautiful place with funny people in it.

We stayed right across the marina and the picture of the cavaco brought me to try this place - we were very pleasantly surprised by the great level of service we received - the staff was bi-lingual which always helps - the young lady that works there was great at filtering down food choices after asking what we were in...

The food was really really good, too bad the service was that bad.. It started pretty well with amazing appetizers and Porto, but then employees were overwhelmed : waiters asking several times for orders, more than 1h30 of waiting time to get some food and several mistakes were done in the orders.. Maybe we were there at the wrong time... More
