We spent our first evening in Ponta Delgada in O Marinero, and enjoyed a very good paella, and had our first taste of Azorean pineapple. The local beer also went down very well!
Friendly and good value.

We ate here for our first meal not in the hotel. The food was quite good but not up to the standard of later places we ate. Location was good, with a view back into Ponta Delgada. Weather was ok that night so ate outside. Starters, fish and puddings were all comptent if not too exciting. Staff reasonably friendly.

This was a somewhat disappointing meal on the waterfront.

We split an
order of pineapple/shrimp cocktail that would've been great if those
were the primary ingredients and not some creamy-mayonnaise-y sauce
that we had to fish the pineapple and shrimp out of.

We ordered
paelha, which had neither the nice crusty rice of a real Spanish
paella nor the saffron flavour. The shrimp did have heads (which I
appreciated), but all told, it was a meh meal, as the rice is (for
me!) the most exciting part of a good paella.

We didn't have dessert.

We liked the place and went there twice. Had grilled mixed seafood both times. Portions are generous and fish was perfectly prepared (which I can't say about a place next to it that served cold tuna steak). Prices are reasonable and service good.

Nicely located in the harbour pavillion of Ponta Delgada, this was one of the more expensive restaurants we tried. Staff, in sailmen's outfits, was friendly but a bit stiff and reserved, and just a bit too fast to feel comfy. Food quality was good and the main courses (mixed grilled fish dish for two) were really great sized. Overall the impression was just above average though, mainly because of the attitude, price level and the speedy service.
