This is a good place with lots of tradition in Horta. The food is overall very fine as long as you go with the local food. The shellfish stew ist one of the best I've had and the starters are also very fine. Most of the starters are very good as well like the shrimps in garlic, cheese with nuts, or the garlic bread.

Avoid the crepes. My daughter had one and it had obviously been frozen before and tasted really awful. Like in so many restaurants in the Azores vegetarian options are very limited.

Went here for lunch. The decor inside is great. Every inch is covered with nautical stuff.
Lunch was also pretty good. Portions were bigger than expected. Several vegetarian choices. My friend's fish may have been undercooked in the middle, but since neither of us are big fish eaters, we weren't sure (and for some reason she didn't want to check with the waitress).
They do have menus in English, so ask for one if needed.

I ate here two times during my 3 days in Horta.

The brunch menu is extremely cheap and very good.

Have a gin and tonic!

Even at 5pm on a rainy afternoon the bar was buzzing. We had to wait a few minutes for a table, having heard that service could be slow we took charge and got our meal ordered quickly.
A starter of melted cheese with walnuts served with fresh bread to scoop up the 'poor mans' fondue went down well and we mioved seamlessly into our steaks.

We chose the fillet of 'cow' in a creamy mushroom sauce. Well I can't say it's the finest steak I have ever eaten (by a long way) but it was perfectly acceptable. French fries were soggy but the carrots and broccoli full of flavour.

Apple pie and ice cream to follow and everything washed down with a bottle of local red wine.

The bill, 50 euros for two including a pre meal gin and tonic was okay. After all this place is a destination experience. And yes we did sail here so any food looks great after 20 days at sea!

Service was prompt and we even got a smile out of the waitress in the end!
