Wandered in here not knowing it would be a super authentic and affordable meal. I got the fresh cheese and linguisa plate with yam. And a bottle of delicious Faria's wine. Highly recommend!

Excellent food, slow pace, great service. Take your time to enjoy a bottle or 2 of wine while the cook creates a very special meal. Be ready to see to enjoy an authentic meal of native fish!

We ordered the soup of the day and grilled fresh fish from the island. It was great. The restaurant is very small and Cozy, staff are all very helpful and they speak English enough to explain the menu. We are going there again

returning after a 6 year gap, the food is still homely and tasty and the staff still friendly, service is still slow albeit on a winter night with few patrons

The best price/quality in Town! You must try the quails with lemon, the blood sausages with pineapples and the "fried moray": delicious!! A place to go during your stay in Horta.

I have been here for dinner as it was recommended by local people as the only one restaurant in Horta cooking codfish based on the Portuguese tradition. Restaurant is often full so I had to reserve a table. The table reserved had only two stools...More
