Modest restaurant. We had one dinner and we went for petiscos - small portions, so we tried more dishes. Clams, pica pau (pieces of meat with some veggies), garlic prawns. OK, but nothing extraordinary. Very good wine - Terras de Lava. Not expensive.

We had lunch here on our first day in Horta. Local cuisine an all you can eat serve yourself menu and a very reasonable (cheap) price. Great place for lunch. Had a very local feel to it.

Maybe today was a bit of a a lesser day if I compare our choices to some of the photos I've seen here. But I got to taste some local things and the food was well prepared. The desert was quite tasty. The only thing...really subpar was the presentation which is much like the entire place dated. But then again you don't come here for contemporary fusion cuisine. The best of all is the price. After our meal the owner made the addition with a pen on the paper table rug...More

Cozy restaurant with lovely host. Dining here, really feels like visiting the owner/cook at his home and enjoying his Azorian dishes. On a sunday evening, we were offered a buffet consisting of beef, three types of pork, red and white wine salsiccia, potatoes, sweet potatoes,...cabbage, carrots, rice and the house specialty fahina sausages. All you can eat for just seven euros. Drinks are super cheap too! Great value!!More

A Arvore is a buffetrestaurant, with a small buffet with a range of tasty, local food. We enjoyed our evening and meal. Friendly owner. The restaurant is something different from the classic resto's. Good to go there once, but for us, not every evening.

Buffet of pork, beef, chicken and sausage dishes with boiled rice. A token vegetable brew. Food well prepared . No menu . Wine available on request - red or white. No english from a miserable waiter who was keen to hurry us up eating, and...wrote the bill on the tablecloth while we were still drinking our bottle of wine. 24 euro for two, with wine and water.More

A lovely place to enjoy traditional food for a great price. A lovely gentleman showed us the buffet and poured large glasses of wine and was very kind to my sister and I.

Even if the environment doesn't give any clue to this, this is a piece of wonder in there if you are aware that you will have a buffet : welcoming is very pleasant and kind, quality is there and you feel like home as you...serve yourself with the quantity you need. Even at the end of service there still is more choice than expected and you are the most welcome. Go there at least once to meet the true people of this archipel.More

This small unassuming restaurant serves up home made local dishes in buffet. Everything tasted very nice and the owner was always ready to help us have a good meal. Don't forget to have desert too!

Uncomplicated, authentic and really reasonably prieced food. The super friendly host serves a buffet of different local specialities. You pay for the plate and can try everything. If you wish twice or more, very dangerous ;) And a glass of wine really is a glass...full of wine!More

It was all you can eat and the food was typical and home-made, delicious and good value for money. The owner was a very nice guy and very helpful, offered a very good service. Don't expect anything fancy from this place but if you are...looking for a place to taste some true Azorean /Portuguese cuisine, keep the bill low with a great service this is the place, don't miss it.More

This place was a real find. Up to this point we had spent far too much money on fairly average restaurants and we were curious to see what 7.50 Euros could buy (it certainly couldn't be any worse than some places where we'd spent 20...to 30 Euros each): particularly since it is a little way out of town. We were pleasantly surprised. Luckily we arrived shortly before a large party and so we caught the buffet at its best. For just 21 Euros we had all that we could eat plus a bottle of wine. We were even provided with a doggy bag so that we could take home what we couldn't manage! The salad was the best I had in the Azores across two weeks, with an amazing array of oils and vinegars to create own dresssing. There was nothing at all that we din't like. Service was very attentive and whole experience was very enjoyable. If we ever go back to Horta, this will certainly be on our list of favourite eateries to be visited again - off the beaten track and our best kept secret!More

We were here as we wanted to try the local cuisine. It’s as small restaurant a little off the Main Street. The food was offered as a buffet, and it was excellent absolutely delicious. There were different kind of dishes with pork, beef, chicken, noodles...potatoes, peas, beans, rice, salad. Price unbeatable! 7 Euros per Person , Kids half price. Dessert another 2,5 but worth every cent. If you want to try real authentic dishes this is the right place to go. We were there when it opened at 6:30 pm when we left it became a little crowded, so if u wanna go a little later I think reservation could be helpful. Bottomline: 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️More

It was very quiet when we came in to this restaurant (it was middle of the week), however we have had a pleasure to try Azores best homemade food. It was very good value for money.
