“Top notch food and service”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We ate here twice. The first night we both had a fish dish that was second to none in Ponta Delgada.

The second time we had the Shellfish Rice - the dish of course included rice but also had lobster, mussels, shrimp, calamari and scallops in a tomato sauce. There was so much in the dish that we couldn't finish much more than half of it and the food was delicious.

“Good food, quick service”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Nicely laid out. Good menu. Good, simple food, like most of the restaurants we ate at. Attentive, English-speaking staff. More vegetables with our plates than other restaurants.

“Tryin tuna”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Well, everyone keeps telling to me that tuna is the thing to eat at azores, so i tried, regardless that i haven't eat any fish in almost 10 years.

Tuna was extremely overcooked, it feels like eating badly made pork.

“Great value”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Waiter from NYC who was very helpful and the food! Yes portugal food can be plain and straightforward but so what! The fish was great and fresh, veg great and wine.. best value in southern europe! After days long walk up and down this scenic island, bring on the grub!
We visited a number of other restaurants, but always came back to here... was it just safe? no but just good value.
