Busy place.

We had a nice meal. The food was very good with a European flair. The place was busy but service was very fast. Must have a well organised kitchen staff! The only downside was the over zealous server; nice but just too much!

I know that "pretty good" sounds like faint praise, but actually, for Gloucester, it's great. I haven't found good restaurants there except for one that isn't open for dinner and another that is too expensive. So I would definitely go back to Azorean even if it wasn't stellar. It was an unusual menu (Portuguese, for the most part, lots of... More

I'm so sorry we didn't discover this wonderful place until our last night in Gloucester. Mom was hankering for a filet mignon, and when I googled, this Portuguese restaurant came up first, so we struck out ready for a break from all the more typical seafood restaurants of the past eight days. From two filet mignon choices on the menu,... More

Great, fast service. Delicious Portuguese soup, codfish cakes and calimari! Family members loved their lobster rolls too.

I was reluctant to try the grilled octopus as my previous experience is that it can be very chewy. The waitress highly recommended it so i went with her suggestion. The dish was grilled perfectly and melted in my mouth. The sauce that it was prepared in enhances the flavors of the octopus. This is a restaurant that you will... More

We came early s we had a theater to go to. Service was prompt but not intrusive. I had the seafood diablo, requested medium heat, but I felt it came in at mild - not a big deal.
