Reviewed October 16, 2013

Went to this restaurant even though our tour guide had said she would not recommend it. Service excellent, staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Had fresh grilled sardines that were to die for!

“Great Service and Food”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The restaurant is located right on the "front" Street Central below street grade. Food and service was excellent. We had an octopus salad for starters and a plate of Sardines and skewer of squid and shrimp. Both meals were great.

The restaurant doesn't overlook the water and that is too bad but the great food and cozy atmosphere made up for it.

“Though to be better than expected.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Not bad, but nothing to talk about. I am not coming back. My daughter liked the grillet shark. It was good but all the rest was nothing to scream about.

“Delicious and Unique”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Food served here is typical not only to the Azores but to this island itself. The views are lacking, but the service and food are terrific.

“Excellent local seafood”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We ended up eating here on three consecutive days. The fish is fresh, well prepared and delicious. The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgable. Although the dessert menu lacks imagination, the local pineapple is a perfect finale . We really recommend the tuna, the swordfish and the rock fish - all freshly caught from the Atlantic. My daughter also indulged in a superb fish soup starter. Easy to find, right across from the harbour- thoroughly recommend!
