After a very disappointing first night's dinner in Gloucester the night before, we found the Azorean Restaurant tonight through Trip Advisor and were very happy with our experience. The Atmosphere inside was great and very inviting. We had our daughter with us, and although she didn't find anything to her liking on the kids menu, the staff was more than accommodating and made some shrimp custom tailored to her taste. My Wife and I had the Owners Mix of Shrimp and Calamari, which had an excellent blend of spices, topped with some jalapeños. The bread was nice and warm, and came with a plate of dipping oil and some nice pitted olives. My wife had the Gloucester Fishermen Seafood Plate, which was very tasty and was piled so high she could not finish it. The fish melted in your mouth. She also had a Chocolate Martini. Good News: The Bar staff is a little heavy on their pours, so the drink was a bit strong. Bad news, same thing - if it sneaks up on you after a couple. I had the Surf and Turf with Baked Stuffed Shrimp and Azorean Steak Tips. I loved the mix of flavors in the steak. There were several beer selections, I liked the Fisherman's Brew (a nice local dark Lager), and had been looking forward to trying it. Finally, we ate on the patio where we were unable to make reservations, but were seated immediately. We finished the whole dining experience off with a beautiful Flan dessert. An excellent ethnic twist on the New England norm.
