We stopped to eat lunch at Os Moinhos during our tour of the Terceira Island. We had Alcatra, a traditional meal in Terceira made of various types of meat. Excellent. We were close to 80 people. What a great meal with had.

We visited this restaurant recently. We were served a local version of roast beef that was absolutely delicious. In addition we had local cheese's as appetizers with a nice soup. The meal was accompanied by potatoes and local veggies that were perfectly done. The desert was a local cake made with honey and ginger. Very good meal.

Good restaurant, struggles to stand out in the crowd of similar restaurants on the island. Great ambience in a restored old millhouse.

On our honeymoon in the Azores had wanted to try for dinner and found ourselves in the area unexpectedly, hungry for lunch. Stopped in and it seemed like they were just opening. Very accommodating. The food was incredible, especially the seafood bisque that comes served in the traditional clay roof tiles of the islands. Good wines. Definitely will try for... More

After watching a couple of bulls at the Fonte, we walked around the corner, down the hill a bit and enjoyed a fabulous seafood dinner. Grilled lidio and the lidio shish kabob both served with potatoes and a refreshing salad with peaches, nuts and seeds. Dona Amelia for dessert. Delicious! Friendly staff, great ambiance. Highly recommended.

Very good restaurant. Not very easy to find, but be sure to give it a try. Had some beautiful meat with bacon around it, fingerlicking delicious. Friendly staff and the place is very traditional.

Recommended. Great fish and seafood. Ask for the fish of the day. Wine list is long. Friendly staff. Worth the drive!

The Old Mill restaurant is the perfect place to bring friends to give them an appreciation of the island's rich history. Located in the oldest village, São Sebastião, the mother-in-law soup should be your starting point.
