Upon the recommendation of the travel guide, we had made reservations at what was purported to be the finest dining in the Azores. We were the only customers for the first hour. Two of us had the seafood tile-cooked on a hot plate basically, which was amazing, no question, with a rich sauce. But the other two entrees came with... More

This was our lunch stop on our Azores Getaway bus tour. What a great local gem. The old farmhouse in and of itself is amazing. But the food was melt in your mouth. I grew up in Kansas on a Beef farm and I've never tasted roast so good. It was well seasoned...it was great. The stews and bread were... More

Wonderful traditional dishes, including cabbage soup and traditional Azorean beef stew. Everything was so tasty, hot and perfect. Servers were friendly as well as the cook. Wine good. A must stop!

Stopped here for lunch whilst on a coach tour of this part of the island. We were told to look out for the local special dish of meat,cooked in a pot for several hours. We were given some bread to start with the local "wobbly" cheese that had been tried before. This is rather tasteless but is not that bad... More

By common consent our group did not like this place, the cabbage soup was all leaves and stalks and little actual soup liquid and as for the beef stew! It was recooked bones and gristle from previous servings. Served with potatoes. No vegetables. We did like the cauldron the stuff was served in though. It was noted that our guide... More

We had lunch here as part of an all day Island tour. It is located in an old mill. The place is very charming and cozy. We were served a traditional meal of bread, olives and cheese with a delicious kale & cabbage soup. Then we had the famous alcatra which was absolutely delicious. It was served with boiled potatoes.... More

This place has THE best veggie soup EVER. I had 3 servings of it. The meal and dessert and wines are plentiful. I would go back to this place at any given time. The best experience in Terceira . I give this place a 4 stars

As others have written, we stopped here as part of an all day bus tour with Azores Getaways. The meal was complete from bread/cheese/olives, soup, alcatra or fish filet, desserts, coffee, and plenty of wine. The servers were efficient. Over the course of our stay we ate at 75% of the Trip Advisor top-rated restaurants and cafes and this was... More
