If you want real traditional Azorian food, food that people make in their homes, this is the place. If you want a fine dining experience stay away. The host is gracious and personable, we had a great time chatting with him as we ate. The food was great, very tasty basic dishes that were well prepared. Price are low and... More

Went for dinner this evening - was very shut, despite the fact that it should be open today! Will it open soon? Would love to say more, but can't write without visiting!

This restaurant is worth every penny. The "all you can eat buffet" is good and very cheap compared to other restaurants. If you are hungry and want to eat for a budget, go there. The food is good, not excellent, but me and my wife both enjoyed it. The location is not very central but easy to find. I can... More

Wonderful find on an evening when we were tired and cold and wanted an easy walk from our hotel for comfort food. Very small, but expansive and delicious buffet for unbelievably low price. Just delightful!

Went here for the buffet lunch...everything was fresh and hot, and while we got there late and were the only ones, we were not rushed. The dishes were all delicious and different and definitely hearty! For $17 euro for two, coffee and water it was a great meal!

With a smile the owner always welcomes us with some story to tell. It's a self service meal with lots of tasty dishes looking back at you... and you just can not decide what to have, so you decide to have it all, or at least try :) everything smells and tastes so good that is difficult to have a...

We went to the restaurant after checking some reviews on the TripAdvisor and we wasn't disappointed. The food is actually very good, you will quickly notice that is home made, it was delicious, and it's a buffet. The owner is a very nice guy and very helpful, no doubt it offers a very good service. And the final surprise is... More

Great buffet of meats .fish and veggies. As many helpings as you like and deserts. Wine consumption is estimated from the bottles on the table but is we'll on the generous side. Friendly and helpful owner. Inexpensive! Would visit again.

This place usually offers buffet lunch and dinner, and thursday is the day if you wanna try the very local azorean "cozido", a typical azorean dish with lots of meat (sausage -linguiça, morcela-, pork ribs, beef, chicken), potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots and cabbage. All that in a very nice and cosy place with stone arches. It's small, though, so be... More

What a wonderful find! We were looking to experience a taste of the local cuisine while in Horta and we found this place on Trip Advisor. After making a few inquiries with locals and our hostess at the guesthouse we settled on this place and we are so happy we did. We walked over to Restaurante A Arvore through pleasant... More
