“just a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

I am not a vegetarian, but after I visited this place I fell in love. It is a very natural like place, the restaurant is literally in a living room of a residential home. The food is amazing and the atmosphere just right. When I visit Ponta Delgada again in the future this will definitely be one of the places I visit first. Just make sure you get here early enough as they are only open for dinner and fill out pretty fast.

“I love meat but I love Rotas more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Rotas has it all - charming laid-back staff, good music and decor, a great varied menu of creative vegetarian food, a good enough wine list and reasonable prices. After 2 weeks of fish and meat around the Azores my wife and I came here one night, were warmly welcomed and had awesome food, then came back for 3 nights in a row. Good idea to book.

“Mussaka”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

We stopped here for lunch one day in Sao Miguel. We had read the TA reviews and wanted to check it out. We arrived a bit late for luch but the friendly staff had no trouble seating us. Ordered mussaka and pea soup. They were both very good. The place has nice charm and is creatively decorated. The bathroom is unique. We would go back again if we were craving a vegetarian meal.

“Excellent vegetarian restaurant, lovely place and great hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

The restaurant is located in a side street of the main shopping area in Ponta Delgada. Rotas offers very good vegetarian dishes which are very tasteful and delicious. Especially the deserts are greats. Service is very good, friendly, helpful and welcoming. It is a lovely and cute small place. Therefore it is recommended to make a reservation in advance as the place is highly required. We have visitied Rotas several times and tried different meals which were all on a high standard and absolutely enjoyable even is one is not a vegetarian. Prices are moderate if one is used to the prices in comparable European mainland restaurants.
