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
