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 place is overated. The food is not prepared correctly. I was served shrimp that was not cleaned correctly and the food description eid not match the menu. They don't cater to their clients needs. They couldn't give me a coffee with fat free milk but the place downtown plaza did! Just go there instead the food is much better!!!!

We started off with lapas (limpets). Delicious! We were told that for seafood, they were the best. I had the fried abrotia fillets. Very good!

My husband and I have eaten here several times since we have lived on the island. The view of the marina is fabulous and the seafood is always fresh! We have tried multiple items on the menu and have never been disappointed!

If you stop by Terceira you can`t miss this restaurant. It`s always busy!! It`s focus is on grilled fish. It has a wonderful soup which is served in a bread.

It's not in ANgra, but in a small village close by. We had fish soup, cracas, lapas and seafood and fish skewers.... SUPERB! The best fish we ate in Terceira. Friendly and fast staff, fair price. Don't miss it!
