We decided to eat here based on trip advisor reviews and also because we enjoy vegetarian food.
We were lucky to get the last table on a Monday night, as the restaurant was almost full. Therefore we would strongly recommend booking in advance, as people had to be turned away after us. It is tucked away down a little back street in the town centre.
The restaurant is small and just like somebody's house. It is rustic, with various old and retro items dotted around. The atmosphere was very cosy and there was a mixture of couples and groups of friends (mainly locals) eating there. It had a buzzing and vibrant atmosphere. The staff were extremely friendly and spoke English - there was also an English menu.
We highly recommend the cheese fondu as a starter - it comes served in a toasted bread loaf with the middle cut out., Ideal for sharing - the flavour was absolutely delicious.
All of the dishes are homemade and have fresh salad/vegetables and fresh ingredients with lovely flavours. The portion sizes seemed generous too. I recommend the mushroom and fresh mint risotto which had a fantastic flavour. The desserts were equally to die for, especially the chocolate cake!
We loved it so much we booked that night to return on our last night. Our return experience was equally as good as the first. Once again the restaurant was fully booked out.
We found most of the other restaurants in Ponta Delgada very touristy and the food either bland or over salted, with the same limited range of dishes on offer. This was perfect - an absolute gem of a place whether you are vegetarian or not.
