Visited this restaurant on our recent trip to Horta. It is a buffet style restaurant with selections of meat, fish, sausages, potatoes, vegetables and deserts. The atmosphere made you think that you were a guest in the owners home. We included wine with our meal and the total cost per person was around 10 euros. Very reasonable. We would definitely...

BEST FOOD in all Azores. Buffet style- every dish a winner. Owner shares his love, pride, stories of local and natural food. Reads poetry. Recounts the all day process for making rice pudding - simply delicious!

The buffet offers a selection of 8-10 typical dishes and is exceptionally good value for money (7 euros without, 9.50 euros with desserts). We loved everything, from homemade cabbage with sausages to beef... More

7 euros buffer per person = best deal in Horta! We appreciate the colourful decor and cozy/ comfortable atmosphere. Owner is a friendly gentleman, and the place is frequented by both locals and tourists. There are many choices of delicious home-cooked Azorean dishes. Mainly meats (beef, pork, different types of sausages), veggies, potatoes and rice. I loved the cabbage and... More
