The Caneta is renowned for its typically Azorean “Alcatra”, a meat dish cooked in a clay pot in a wood stove, and also for its "Polvo" or octopus stew. The restaurant serves superb home-baked bread on the side. Fingerlickingly good. Nice surroundings.

Good atmosphere, great food and affordable prices. Try the "cracas" and the meat in the pan, very good.

I really love this place it reminds me of a steakhouse in Canada but the waiter needs to be more welcoming. When you walk in he looks like he is made to work and does not show that affection and friendly faces that the people from Terceira have.

We stumbled upon this restaurant on the west side of the island. We tried the famous azorean "Alcatra de Carne", "Bife à Casa". This was the last meal after one month in the Azores and this was one of the best. We learned that almost everything that comes to the table is home produced by the restaurant, since they have...

My family and I had dinner here after touring the island by hike. What great food. I had the wreck fish which was flavored to perfection. My sister had the grilled octopus and it was also cooked and floured perfectly. The staff were extremely inviting and courteous. Also noticed all fish and meat was served with pineapple and orange slices.... More

Our meal was perfectly prepared - friends highly recommend the beef of the house and I had a lightly fried fish of the day. All items delicious and perfectly executed!

We had dinner at Caneta after bathing at Biscoitos, on our way back to Angra do Heroismo. The specialty of the house is meat but we went for fish. We add a large plate of delicious sea urchins before a mix of grilled white fish. Cooked to perfection. Regular vegetables but tasty and well prepared. Nice white and red wines... More

Wonderful! Me & 6 family members came in for dinner after a day of hiking. We walked in and were seated right away without having reservations. At first we thought we might be dressed too casual for such an elegant place but the staff quickly made us feel comfortable and welcomed. The food was Divine. Between all of us we... More

We visited this restaurant looking for the famous best steak in the Azores. We tried the famous azorean "Alcatra de Carne", "Bife à Casa" and "Polvo Grelhado".

We had 3 dinners at Caneta during our stay in Terceira, and all of them were amazing. It all started with our wonderful waitress Ana, from her recommendations on dishes and wines to her pleasant attitude. This is the place to go if you want Azorean food of the highest quality, prepared in traditional ways. From local fish to meat... More
