“Shark stake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

This was the only restaurant on Sao Miguel where we actually returned - ate there our first night on the island and the last one.
Both times we had a shark stake, which was delicious. We returned because it was only place on the whole island that managed to impress us with the food.
It was also cheap and really close to our hotel.
Nothing fancy, but honest, simple, cheap food which tasted good.

This restaurant is very appropriate to eat traditionnal portuguese dishes. Food is tasty, waiters friendly and it's not expensive.

One of the nicest restaurants I've experienced. Small and intimate, attentive service, wonderful food. My first choice in Ponta Delgada.

“Very friendly...and excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Stumbled across this almost empty restaurant on our first evening on the island, and we were on our own for all of 10 minutes! Then the place started to fill up and we congratulated ourselves on arriving at the right time.

We ate two excellent two course meals which, with a bottle of (better than house) wine and coffee brandy, totalled around 40 Euros.....good value for the quality.

Perhaps, all I need have said is that we were unable to get a seat on either of the next two nights as the place was totally full (some groups, some couples). They are very obviously doing something right!
