We love this place! The seafood is fresh and the view is amazing. Some of our favorites are the grilled squid, grilled octopus, grilled alfonsino (this is served whole so if you are a bit squeamish then keep that in mind) , and the limpets!

The food was good. I enjoyed the scenery and it has some of the best seafood on the island. I had swordfish for the first time ever; it was great. Highly recommend the restaurant.

We've eaten here three times over to vacations now and have loved it every time. Pros: - Great food - Great location - Great service (FYI it's not fine dining, but everything runs like clockwork here regardless how busy) - Good price Cons: - can be very crowded and hot inside. If it's busy try to sit on the balcony.

I love this restaurant and the quality and service is consistent from year to year - I've been visiting for 4 years! Try both types of lobsters - the slipper is my favorite - their fish is fresh and cooked perfectly, limpets this is the only place I eat them and it's a great place to take a small party.... More

We had a delicious dinner on the terrace of Beira Mar in Sao Mateus on a Saturday night. The staff was kind enough to find a small table - we had no reservation. The light was so special, the all scene was illuminated by golden colors of the sunset projected against a stormy sky. We had sea urchins - delightful... More

We make sure to go here every year when we visit family in Terceira!!! The food is delicious, the people are great, and the view from outside is beautiful! One of my favourite places on the island.

Excellent value for money and amazing bay. Book early though and be prepared to wait as they take a bit to get the food to you but it is worth the wait

This restaurant is not to be confused with the one with the same name on the front in Angra do Heroisma itself. This one is is a very good local fish restaurant with nice views over the harbour at Sao Mateus, which is a village/suburb of Angra. We had lunch there one Sunday. It was busy but we were lucky...

Beira Mar is probably most famous for their view not their food and I would agree. Although not bad, the seafood that came so highly rated was a bit if any above average. The shrimp were large and served head-on which is great...more flavor! The lapas we got for an appetizer were a little over-cooked and were quite chewy although... More
