My husband and I are not usual vegetarians but nevertheless we had a great evening at Rotas. Since we were in off-season, it was easy for us to reserve a table, everyone speaks very well English, and is courteous and kind. The menu has different appealing dishes, it was difficult to make a choice! I had the soup of the... More

Our tour guide recommended, more accurately insisted, that we should eat at Rotas when he found out my husband is vegetarian. We are very thankful to him for the recommendation! The food at Rotas is delicious! We had the beet soup, which was creamy and flavorful. For entree, we had yam puree and zucchini noodle, both of which were creative... More

We enjoyed our meal so much on the first night that we had to go back a second night for our favourite dish and dessert. We tried 2 different entrees and 2 different desserts. Both were excellent. They offer vegetarian and vegan options.

The service was good, they are genuinely friendly. The place is very quaint. I thought the food was good, however, salty (or maybe the verge steak was marinated in soy sauce which made it appear very salty). I would recommend it to anyone - regardless of whether they are vegetarian. Although it was difficult to find, everyone knows where it... More

We stopped here for lunch on a Monday afternoon. For lunch they do not serve the full menu, but two choices of main dishes. Once the food is gone, the restaurant closes. The table turns quick, but there was almost always a wait. The Lentil soup to start was full of flavor (1 Euro a cup, amazing deal!) Being a... More

We were fortunate to get a table during our visit to Ponta Delgada. This meal was definitely a highlight of our trip! The restaurant is charming, and full of character. The menu is great, the food is exceptional, and is a highly rated restaurant for a reason - it deserves it. A very good dining experience from beginning to end,... More

Yes, it's vegetarian... And it's really good!!! We came to this wonderful restaurant on an advice of another tourist. She said we should call first for reservation!! (in the evening) This tiny place works very well, even for lunch. They do just one "meal of the day" (prato do dia) for lunch. From the vegetarian entries to the best dessert... More

We were craving vegetables and very happy with our meal and service here. Best to call ahead for reservation as seating is very limited and we would have eaten here again but had not reserved far enough in advance. Unusual in Portugal as it appears to be owned by women and have an all-female kitchen staff. Satisfying meal and service... More

We stopped in to this small downtown restaurant and made a reservation for the following night. Everything about this place is very quaint and has a unique style. Cloth menus, lace tablecloths, even clever check delivery. We aren't vegetarians but, we loved the whole meal and didn't miss the meats. I had tofu with a black rice and pineapple salsa.... More
