To be fair we were part of a group of 28. The service was very slow; in fact the waiters didn't come any where near us until some of us got up and went to the bar to order drinks when the boss man sent the waiters across. The food can best be described as average although the cheese was... More

Spent an afternoon in Ribiera Grande, and walked by this place for lunch. Weren't quite hungry so we followed up the promenade and returned about 30 minutes later. There was a tour group hogging the restaurant, so they warned us it'd be about 20 min for a table. We hung out and then were seated. Ordered the following: Grilled Limpits:... More

We came across this restaurante when visiting Ribeira Grande. We had a very good dinner experience and enjoyed magnificent sunset view. Food was very good and they have great dishes for every pocket. The service was surprisingly fast and excellent. We'll be back!

The service was very good. The view was beautiful. The food was not out of this world but it still was very good. We had the steak Sao Miguel style, it was good but we wished it had more of the Sao Miguel spices. Overall we really liked and recommend eating here.

Came here due to recommendations by tripadvisor. We had to wait for a seat which is ok since it was tourist season. We finally got a seat but it started to rain so we had to go inside (no nice view for us). Food was quite average I had the codfish which was nice but nothing special and my wife... More

We were recommended this place by our hotel and from the reviews thought that the restaurant would produce good fresh fish dishes. Sadly we left feeling very disappointed with the quality of the food, the cleanliness of the rest rooms and it was very expensive. The best that can be said about the place is that the view of the...

Had a great meal here with my wife last night. Really good food, best view and good crowd. Very reasonable prices. Best steak I've had in San Miguel. I had chourico starter which was great. I know there's a better local name for it, but my wife had blood pudding and local pineapple that was fantastic. You could walk past... More

Great restaurant for fish with an awesome view. Try the "folhado de cherne" (their specialty). Wait for the sunset to get an awesome view.
