Apetizers were very good. We took mixed grilled fish they did not ask what kind of fish we wanted. It was good but too many bones, we should have asked for boneless. I understand the comments about service. They are more friendly with portuguees people I think because most of the waitresses do not speak English. Service is not like... More

A real seafood specialty restaurant. Our friends had been here before and so we wnt. The food did not disappoint. The decor is plain like many good seafood restaurants I have been to. The ocean was serving up a storm with breakers at the small harbor entrance which added some drama to the visit.

Having travelled to the Far East of the island and found no where appealing to eat, we hit the main road back to Lagoa. Ended up by the port and found a couple of restaurants.

The fish selection was good, some menu items were not available but that is often the case when fish is fresh. Food was excellent, good portions. Staff was uninterested, they had a tour group that took most of their attention and Portuguese speakers had a better chance to get their attention.

Here you will get cheap but extraordinary good and fresh fish. You can make your own choice at the show cage. The fish is then prepared for your meal.

The food was very typical from Azores. The fish was really fresh and very well cooked! The staff was very friendly, always ready to explain something. The food was really great and the atmosphere in the restaurant was nice.

Fresh, good TASTY portions, polite and helpfull waiters. It's one or maybe the best place in São Miguel island for you to cook for fish. Won't regret the decision and please, also try the fish soup.
