Family and I vacationed on the island for 10 days and ate at O Farol 5 times - each time, the food was equal of better than the previous dinner. Great local (fried or grilled) fish dishes. If you like fish - I recommend you stop in for dinner.

We visited O Farol when we were in Ponta Delgada last year and had a delicious meal. The Carne de Espito (skewered beef) was succulent and done to perfection and my husband's grilled octopus was wonderful. What now has become one of my favorite desserts is served.

It does get quite busy around lunch time as locals enjoy a great lunch at reasonable prices. If you are looking for some great food at great prices,... More

Food at this location was great and the price was reasonable. The menu has many plates and choices to choose from. Most of all the dishes are Portuguese/Azorean.
