This restaurant is a bit outside of the harbor area that most visitors of Horta explore, but it is within walking distance and truly a hidden gem. The buffet offers a selection of 8-10 typical dishes and is exceptionally good value for money (7 euros without, 9.50 euros with desserts). We loved everything, from homemade cabbage with sausages to beef... More

7 euros buffer per person = best deal in Horta! We appreciate the colourful decor and cozy/ comfortable atmosphere. Owner is a friendly gentleman, and the place is frequented by both locals and tourists. There are many choices of delicious home-cooked Azorean dishes. Mainly meats (beef, pork, different types of sausages), veggies, potatoes and rice. I loved the cabbage and... More

If you want experience a true "cozido" after a all day trecking on nature, try this cosy restaurant and you will be marveled with the family ambiance and the good food...it's boufet style and it's a very good price.

Home made dishes made with love. All you can eat buffet for 7 Euros. Meet dishes dominate but finally no french fries but vegetable (boiled cabbage, sweet potatoes, potatoes, simple green salad, chickpeas salad,...). Very nice 4 types of sausages (vegetarian, basic, typical Azorean blood sausage and a sausage with red wine), boiled beef with potatoes, pork meat, meet pudding,... More

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!
