This place is really what you are looking for if you have kids bored of the seafood. Their pizza was excellent, 9 eur for the small one (25cm I beleive) and 15 for a large. They speak English. 4 star because I got squids, but they didn't say it's fried. Otherwise recommended.

A super friendly family restaurant! The pizza tasted amazing. We went there twice during our 1 week visit because it was so good. We had their special pizza (with onions, peppers, chorizo etc) and their margarita (for the children!!). Their calamari was also very tasty.
The pizza base is very thin and the children found it a little bit crunchy. On our second visit we asked if we could have a thicker base, which they very kindly provided, and they loved it!
It was also very economical; 2 quite large pizzas (we couldn't finish them), 1 portion of calamari with home made chips, a few drinks (beers, the lovely Compal apple juice and bottled water) came to 47 euros! They also do take away but it really is a lovely little place so do stay there for your meal if you can.
P.S. it's closed on Tuesdays!

We wanted to just grab a light cheap supper so we headed up the road to Porta dad Baleias for a quick pizza and found a delightful family run pizza shop. The family was very friendly and the pizza was very tasty. It was so good we went back a few days later again for a quick bit after having a larger longer sit down lunch. There are 4 tables to sit at, the atmosphere is light the family is friendly and the food was full of flavour. What else could you want. If you want to eat outside walk 50 yards towards the ocean and sit on a large waist high wall and eat while watching the waves come in. Two thumbs ups. Just follow google maps it actually works for this restaurant, easy to find.

Nice and cosy place. You'll think it's a takeaway pizza place, But they have several tables (also outside in the back!).

The food is average. Pizza was good enough.

The service is great! Nice, kind, friendly (and all other positive words) young men who made the difference.

Don't forget to give the dog (Skipper) a little piece of your pizza. He is behind the gate; So No worries.

Toilet was clean.

We'll be back!

We had a fantastic meal tonight at Porto das Baleias. This family run business serves excellent pizza and was extremely friendly and nice. They showed us a map of the island and suggested many places to visit during our stay. We will be going back here for dinner for sure.
