We enjoyed a nice meal here. My partner is vegetarian and she was happy with the veggie option. I had delicious lapas and a very tasty chicken dish. Service was a little slow but the waiter was great, very friendly and pleasant and it was obvious he enjoyed his work which is almost a rarity these days :)

Modern, good food, nice environment, efficient service. Not too many options in town to go for dinner so this place outstands among the others for a nice food. The octopus was just fantastic!. This a place to try local food. They also have azorean wine which should be tried, it is worth. Prices are also good. You will not be... More

We had an amazing meal here! We ate the albacore after being in Lisbon for a week and it was the best meal we had! Go around 8pm in August so you don't miss the sun set! Outstanding!!!

This is a place that you should visit and book in advance if you want to experience the balcony. The food was good and there was a kids menu (with burger or bolognese). My dish had a gourmet look. The staff was helpful but seemed a bit too formal and gray. I wish they were a bit more lively like... More

Without a doubt, the best lunch we had in Azores. Everything was marvelous, the food, presentation, service and view, everything was perfect. I'll save this one for my next trip to Azores. By the way, I had the tuna and it was 👌

First restaurant we visited during our trip and we were all enchanted! I had the fish special which was fabulous served with a dry white wine recommended by our waitress, Carolina. The desserts were out of this world, ordered the ice cream, mouse and a cream and cookie pudding-- absolutely to die for.

It is a place where you feel really welcome. We had lunch outside, sitting in the shade overlooking the ocean and were surrounded by very friendly and attentive staff. We choose some local Azores dishes followed by local dessert and were (having looked at previous reviews) very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. There is plenty of choice... More
