Probably one of the best places to eat grilled fish on the island. Many types of extra fresh fish to be chosen from as well as meat dishes. Large dinning room, kitchen can be seen, good service and very, very tasty food. Good wine selection plus of sorts of light drinks are available.

Very close to the sea but not "on" the sea, in the small port of the city of Lagoa. Simple, familiar, with excellent fresh fish; a nice place to spend a dinner and appreciate at ease the wonderful Azorean sealife, varied and abundant in all seasons. Servings are truly generous, each enough for two (normal) eaters, so don't go there... More

The food is really good and the English speaking staff is very helpful as well as the menu in English. You get a lot of food and you can choose between a smaller or a normal meal. Service is a little bit poor as we had to order our dessert twice, and it took quite a long time until we... More

It's noisy, with the TV always on, but it's a real family place, the waiters are vey nice and the fish perfectly grilled, maybe the best in the Azores. It's not expensive at all and you feel like in a "tasca" in Lisboa but in the middle of the ocean. The ananas mousse was delicious, unfortunately the other desserts were... More

Apetizers were very good. We took mixed grilled fish they did not ask what kind of fish we wanted. It was good but too many bones, we should have asked for boneless. I understand the comments about service. They are more friendly with portuguees people I think because most of the waitresses do not speak English. Service is not like... More

A real seafood specialty restaurant. Our friends had been here before and so we wnt. The food did not disappoint. The decor is plain like many good seafood restaurants I have been to. The ocean was serving up a storm with breakers at the small harbor entrance which added some drama to the visit.

Having travelled to the Far East of the island and found no where appealing to eat, we hit the main road back to Lagoa. Ended up by the port and found a couple of restaurants. Do not be put off by the plastic chairs outside and make a bee line for the raised restaurant closer to the harbour wall, we... More
