A very busy restaurant but open all day everyday. Mixed of locals and tourists. Not the place if your looking for a leisurely meal as service is quick due to how busy it is.
I had steak and my fiance had shark steak both meals were really good with a large portion and really good value.

This is the 2nd time we have dined at Mercado do Peixe in Ponte Delgado, and the food is
delightful, fresh and beautifully served. Expect a leisurely meal, it is cooked to order, nice menu.
Be sure to order the crisp, light Portuguese wine 'Vino Verde'. It will enhance your meal, providing it is fish, of course.

Excellent service combined with fresh, juicy food. Small portions, high prices and only 2 beers on offer would be the downside.
Also, they don't clean the sardines.

We nearly passed this one up, due to its location being down the steps on the lower level of the building. Very glad we didn't. After our first dinner, went back a couple of nights later, and again, were not disappointed with our meals. The three of us each ordered a different item, and all were very pleased with the results. The waitress helped us select an excellant wine to go with our meal as well. Yes, the tables were close together, but fortunately for us, the restaurant was not busy when we were there. Then, again, we were eating later in the evening. Premises clean, decor interesting, varied menu.

Perhaps we hit it on a good evening, but unlike some other reviewers, we found this one of the better fish restaurants in Ponta Delgada. The prices were very good and the service attentive. The tables are a bit close together and it seems more at the very good café style than the upmarket restaurant. Having said that, if it's good fresh fish you're after, give it a try.
