“The most helpful staff ever and a good dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

We came in Boca de Cena very late and we've been welcomed with a smile. the staff has been amazingly supportive to allow us not to order huge quantities of food. crispy octopus and chef steak definitely very tasty and good. Nice place to hang out after dinner thanks to the soft music.

This place wasn't easy to find as the sign is tiny but the restaura.t deserves a big one! The menu choices are excellent and service couldn't have been better!

“A wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2010

Ricardo was the perfect host, welcoming, lively & colourful. We were wandering around the hinterland of back streets of Ponta Delgada looking for a place to have dinner. We happened on this restaurant tucked into a corner opposite the Theatro. Bleak looking area, nobody around so we inquisitively checked out this place. Ricardo came out to greet us. We went inside to find a dark interior with soft lighting. Nobody else in the place (it was about 7.30pm). Ricardo's quirky manner and a quick look at the menu and we were hooked. Ricardo fixed us a couple of apperitifs (a surprise) made suggestions about what to choose from the menu & then left us to make our own choices. Other customers began to arrive.
The food was delicious, the service was just the right balance and what made it such a memorable experience was Ricardo's enthusiasm, fun & pleasure in bringing pleasure to his customers.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
