Affectionately called 'steak on a stick,' we loved the Steak Kabobs- can't think of a better cooked filet I've had. My husband swears by the Sweet Vinegar Pudding (not much to look at, but tastes delicious).

On a local tour of the island, our group stopped at Caneta for a late lunch. I am not sure of what their regular hours are, but this was a Saturday afternoon (around 2) and the place was packed. The food was great and the wine selection was top notch. My husband and I both had the house steak, which was prepared perfectly to our requests. Our friends got the steak kebab, which is about a 2.5 metal skewer filled with three cuts of beef. Everyone who got the kebab raved about it. The service was very good and the prices were average for restaurants around the island. The fact that it is considered to be in Angra is slightly misleading. The restaurant is located in Altares, which is near the village of Biscoitos, so if you are staying in the center of Angra, Caneta will be a little bit of a drive for you.

Following a visit at Beira Mar, the popular place in S. Mateus who trying to hide their overpriced cuvert prices I was very positivly surprised about this elegant property, their service attitude and excellent meals (ca. 8-14€). Standard portugese wine menu incl. some Acorean wines (from 7€/bottle)
They quote every single starter like bread, butter, olives, cheese etc and clearly mention that if you don't want, you can deny.

Try their vegetable soup, a "kebap" steak (forget about a kebap it's a stick as in Brazilian Rodizio) or grilled fish - you wont' be disappointed- at the end you won't need to break the bank..... The only thing which didn't work properly was to bringt for all of us dishes same time...

I ate absolutely the best steak I have ever had. The steak kabob was outstanding and the service was prompt and friendly. We had a party of over 15 people and the food was served fresh and fast. Also, the price was the main course, drink, and dessert was on 21 euro...unbelievable...will definitely need a return visit.

I went here 2 times while i was on Terceira. The food is good, the dining is good, and the wait staff is very good. I highly suggest if you're visiting the island, please go here. Although they are open from 5pm-Unknown
So don't go there for lunch
