“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Great fresh fish, and absolutely love the Limpets! Other stuff was good too, as we went a couple of nights. Very nice and helpful staff. Clientele is 50/50 local/tourist, but it feels pretty authentic.

“Proper Portuguese fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Another traditional Portuguese restaurant, rammed full with locals, serves local fresh fish. I had grey triggerfish fillets which were delicious and highly recommended. My husband a type of seabream which he equally enjoyed. Both were freshly cooked and served by friendly waiters. Can't go wrong.

“Probably the best place to eat in Horta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

The kitchen is really good with excellent flavored food. The service is good where they take the time to explain the menu and even bring out a book with fish to allow you to translate the fresh catch to your own language.
