“Truly reccomended!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

I went to Fornos de Lava with a group of friends for dinner on a foggy evening. Understandbly we couldn't enjoy the view. It took us some time to find the place but we finally managed to spot it amid the azorean night. The room is simple and let's say that they don't waste electricity on unnecessary lighting. We found the staff friendly and the food excellent (not only the fish but also the veal) and would return any day. Truly reccomended!

“Good ingredients makes good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

This restaurant has its own garden with vegetables and herbs. Also the other ingredients are form local organic sources. And you taste the the difference. Good dishes. The service is enthousiastic but sometimes lacks attention.
