“Lava stone restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

One has to prepare your own food on a hot lava stone. Very nice peaces of meat, fish and limpets. Friendly service but very noisy interior. Also rather expensive for what you get.

“Very good meat and fish food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Meats and fishes are fresh and cooked on a hot stone. Very original - You are the cooker and children love it - Waiters are very kind

“New Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

A magical experience. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Full menu offering a good choice. We did not know it was a hot lava stone restaurant but thoroughly enjoyed the experience of cooking our fish and meat which proved to be excellent entertainment. Highly recommend!

“A change of pace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

We enjoyed our dinner at this unusual restaurant that affords diners an opportunity to cook their own food on hot stones. Our number one tip is to NOT overcook your food. It was a nice change of pace, even if a little bit on the expensive side. We would highly recommend advance reservations as this place is extremely busy. We found the service to be very good with fresh tasting meats and seafood. We decided that the decor could be best characterized as "industrial maritime."

“Different style! Great for a group”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

This isnt the first time I've been to Canto De Doca and if I ever come back to Horta - I will go again! The staff are friendly, the restaurant has a great atmosphere when they're busy (very often!!) and the food is simple but tasty. Cooking on your own stone is fun and different! Our group went twice in 4 days and had a great time. Good price :) Make a reservation!
