I have been here for dinner as it was recommended by local people as the only one restaurant in Horta cooking codfish based on the Portuguese tradition. Restaurant is often full so I had to reserve a table. The table reserved had only two stools...More

This is a typical restaurant where local families go. The food is very good and the service is nice. It is cheaper than other restaurants at the same range, but the food is equally good.

Quality/price is very low compared to any other restaurant we have been to in Azores. The service was not good.Better find another place.

Not the best for kids. Maybe good for typical starters. We had steaks, Chicken and "Medalhas".. both served with pre frozen fries. Steaks nothing special. Soup for kids was very good. Honest place.

A very honest local restaurant with good local products. Both meat and fish can be recommended. Food is typical. Staff is friendly. Prices also very honest. I would say a good value for money.

Do not expect fine dining here but do expect typical Portuguese food. If you like squid, order it here, I recommend lulas grelhadas sem natas. Also the prawns (gambas) are a must.

This restaurant was a place of a lot of turists and sailors. Still good food and good service. But there are always a lot of people, so come early or call in advance.

N38°32,317' W28°37,525' This was the favourite hangout of Horta locals, until Medalhas featured in every tour guide. Locals in Medalhas are now on the threaten species list. They know one trick to keep tourist out: make a reservation. We had to wait until 18:30 hour...More

A simple Casa de Pasto in Horta offering Portuguese meals and nice ambiance. Medalhas menu is diversified, service is efficient and the owner is there for you.
