Barracuda and Tuna entrees with octopus salads. The crepe, cupcake, and pineapple cake for dessert. Bottle of Kasta vinho blanc and a great tap beer. Top ten seafood meals ever! Dessert was top 20. Got there at opening, just good timing. Crowd was handled good, with very knowledgable service. A little bit snippy in that European way a American might... More

Great meal on the 2nd floor balcony, good service, great food and wine. We both had meat - regional steak and skewer - and they were cooked perfectly. I have an allergy to dairy products and they were helpful in reassuring me of the exact contents of the steak sauce so I could enjoy it worry-free!

Rude waiter, mediocre food (at best) and a wine from a box = avoid! We had a fish soup which was inedible - rice and artificial flavorings killed it. Afterwards we had octopus salad - octopus wasn't cleaned property. Also, a very sad dish of sautéed squid and shrimp. This place needs to get better asap.

Read rave reviews about this place. Cute enough with a couple of floors. Has the ambience part, I agree.. looking out onto the harbor. It was a rainy night , so we sat on the 2nd floor ( European 1st floor) which is a floor below the terrace. The fish soup was rather poor. It was lukewarm ram and had... More

The food here is top notch, the views are lovely from the balcony and the staff are friendly and helpful. We had a fun and playful rapport with out server who made many suggestions throughout the night, all of which were spot on. The fish stew for two was more than we could eat, but we gave it our all!... More

We arrived in Villa Franca and during our first walk along the port noticed the restaurant and made dinner reservations for the following day. We had a wonderful dinner at the roof top patio. In total there were 7 of us and we all ordered different dishes, all delicious, but my favourite was the grilled cod fish. I tried it... More

We ate here on our last evening in the Azores and had a great meal. We pre-booked so had a table on the top floor balcony overlooking the harbour and island. The waiter was great, funny and helpful. The starters we're good (limpets are tasty but chewy) and the black pudding & pineapple was interesting. The grilled tuna was the... More

We ate on the balcony and had an amazing view. Nice waiter, I asked him what he recommended and he said the tuna (a little pricey, 15 Euro I think but I was willing to splurge anyway); he did not fail me! I swear it's the best tuna I've ever had in my life, I had it done medium and... More

The food here is good and what could have been a really great dining experience was marred by the surly and unfriendly attitude of the 2 male waiters that were on duty. Why work in the hospitality trade if you can't even raise a smile once in a while? Cheer up, for goodness sake.
