Seaworthy

Pete's Cafe is a bar that has stood the test of time along a busy harbour front, welcoming sailors from around the world. Pasted with pennants, the ancient walls tell stories of it's seafaring history. The staff are very friendly and we enjoyed the fish cakes and beer.

This was the first place we ate at when we arrived in Faial. They had a decent menu and great specials which were a nice combo of western and local fare. We ate here three times as we enjoyed the service, ambiance and mostly the food. The place is renowned for it's hospitality to sailors and other sea farers, and... More

We visited Pete's while sailing Christian Raddich, a Norweigan full rigged sail ship. Pete's Cafe hosted some wet night out where some of the crew actually ended up singing old seamen songs and danced at the table =) The food wasn't all that great so eat before joining the party! PS. Pete's is also a whale bone museum and they... More

During our almost one-week mooring in Horta, we went to Peter's every night...It's just such a wonderful place. Super friendly staff, excellent food, great choice of drinks and always, always somebody new to talk to. Also nice just to go there during the day for an outstanding hot chocolate, free wifi and relaxed atmosphere. I guess more than half of... More

A really nice pub and grub atmosphere. Try the BBQ chicken, definitely done the Portuguese way. The service was good and there always seemed to be a family member present to make sure that everything went smoothly.

A special place to visit if you're in Horta. Must try the Gin Mare and eat limpets . It is a historical place that appears even in some books , a reference on the islands, but taking advantage of it, the prices are not cheap.

I admit, when I first red the menu, I thought, here we go, stuck on eating salad again. Yes I am one of those annoying vegans. But as I talked to the fabulous staff, I realized I could be in for a treat. They made me a wonderful vegetarian pasta that was so delicious I had it at least 4... More

Busy cafe with efficient staff and a great atmosphere. All the flags, money and other foreign donations give an interesting slant to the history of the place.

Heck we had to try this place since we love Anthony Bourdain and he featured it on one of his No Reservations shows. It is well placed near the sailing harbor and has a nice outdoor patio overlooking the harbor and all the boats. Of course, just like our hero, we ordered the gin and tonic to start and it... More
