We were lucky enough to enjoy one of the picnics while on an outing . I have to say it was delicious and packed in such a pretty way. We enjoyed watermelon, salad and a hummus sandwich along with a very special local desert.

Maria Pic-nic its a family-friendl restaurant that creates unique and traditional Azorean picnics for you to take-away and enjoy at your own leisure. Picnics are a popular practice in the Azores. Our nature has unforgettable places for picnics, such as the banks of the lagoons, the deserted beaches, our belvederes. You can choose to perform a picnic at sunset in the mosteiros or enjoy the interior of the island and make a picnic at the pico da vara. The different menus were selected for you to experience the Azorean culture along fresh, local food. Maria Pic-nic is a company dedicated to providing moments of sharing in nature and in the family, for that reason we also have a menu dedicated to the babies, adapting us to any type of request. We prepare wedding parties, birthday parties, corporate events, groups that are looking for nature to perform physical activities, as well as yoga retreats (We have special conditions for large groups). The picnic baskets are delivered with plates, cutlery, serving dishes, cups, bottle opener, napkins, tea towels and any other utensils necessary for each specific menu.
