The fish is fresh and delicious and the limpets were amazing with a bit of limon. The recommended wine from Azores... read more

Although the fish is not grilled on charcoal (apparently a local thing) it is very fresh and well prepared. Seafood is also of very good quality. Can't really miss on this one.

Excellent food, good, friendly service and good prices. It is very popular so make reservations or get there early. The best tables overlook the harbour.

Great food, we had shrimp, lampish, and swordfish, and it was delicious! Service was excellent. I think they serve the best seafood on the island

So you've landed on Terceira, a beautiful member of the Archipelago of the Azores...you should immediately begin searching for a seafood restaurant. Do not pass go, proceed directly to the beautiful fisherman's port of São Mateus and the Restaurante Beira Mar. Order the Sopa do Mar, a plate full of barnacles (cracias) and you've begun the best seafood dinner of... More

we ate here on March 21. The fish was fresh from the ocean and nicely prepared. The restaurant is deservedly popular, but the service was very rushed. Our main course was delivered when I had barely started my soup. Not a relaxed meal! Another consideration is that the restaurant, while overlooking a fishing harbour is difficult to reach from Angra... More

We've lived on Tercira Island for over two years. Traditional Portuguese food on the island, on the wholle, is delicious but Beira Mar is consistently our favorite. It is a family run business and very popular with the locals (always a good sign!) So booking a table ahead is sensible. Not open on a Monday. Located on a delightful fishing... More
