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

Although the food was tasty I don't think this place deserves it's No. 1 position. I have never sat in such an ugly room and the music playing was awful. The waitress was very attentive to a couple near us but completely ignored us. Even though we had booked a table it took 40 mins for any food to come... More

...that said, the food was really good and that coming from a carnivore! The 4-cheese entree, puffy pastry stuffed with zucchini, risotto with black beer... all was even outdone by the very warm and charming service...well worth the visit if you survive the road leading there!

This is a small vegetarian restaurant. It is about 10 min walk up from the main road by the marina, on the north side of town. A reservation is strongly recommended. We had to wait 40 min from ordering to get our main course, we had no starter. The food was unusual and very tasty, especially the 3 chocolate mousse,... More
