This restaurant was our absolute favorite here on the island. I've already written a review in German, but after four other visits it's time for an English review. That also gives me the opportunity to comment on some of the other reviews here.
The interieur of the restaurant is pretty modern, you wouldn't expect that when standing before the building. There's enough space between the big tables , so all in all it looks more than a gourmet restaurant. But the overall atmosphere is really relaxed!
I don't know if the restaurant offers other food than fish - we've never read the menue, have always selected our meals from the table with fresh fish! This than will be prepared to perfection by the cook, a former fisherman. You can watch the whole process since the grill is intergrated into the guest room (real show-cooking).
Independent on your selection, you always will receive a huge piece of perfectly prepared fish (if wished, the cook removes the fish bones for you). For some of the fish, e.g. the tuna steak, you have the selection: medium or well done. The side dishes are not too much (potatoes and salad), what is good - otherwise you wouldn't have the chance to eat the whole fish! We've seen other side dishes (vegetables) on one of the other tables, obviously you can order them if wished. The price for the meals varies depending on the type of fish - currently from EUR 10 to EUR 18. That maybe is the reason for some comments here on the bargain. When you - by random - select a meal for just EUR 10 (like we had the first time - each of us got two perfect tuna steaks), you won't beleave the bill (just EUR 36, including a bottle of the best available local white wine). The next day, we had another fish - and payed EUR 54. That no longer sounds like a good bargain - but shows that the difference just comes from the selected fish. So if you want to have a cheap meal, you should check the price of the different fishes - we just selected the best available fish (follow the recommendations!) and were always absolute happy with the selection as well as with the bill. At our last (fifth) visit, we (two people) hat a fish of two kilograms and paid just EUR 24 - together! I gave the higest tip ever and had the feeling that this was not enough…
To your information: The location is wrongly shown on TripAdvisor! I've already reported this, but obviously a change is not trivial. You'll find the restaurant in Ponta Delgada (not, as shown, in Remedios). The Casa Marisca is not far away, from there just go 300 meters to the east (in a small road to the left). In Google Maps, it's correctly located.
