Great place with great and tasty food, but let's go back to the beginning. Me and me girlfriend were looking to eat in the place on a Monday and while we were looking around for a parking for our scooter the waiter came out to help us and told us that there was no room for us that night and...

This place is so popular that one must book to eat here. We're vegetarians yet very particular about veggie restaurants and appreciate a high standard for fine food. Rotas is beyond amazing: appetisers, entrees, desserts all blew our minds. The inventive pairings of ingredients, the subtle textures and flavours, the obvious love of cooking is on another level! Both Carolina... More

We really loved this one! Good staff and the greatest food. Worth a visit guys! :) for sure. We would go here again. They serve vegetarian and also vegan food. Also the interior decorations are the best.

Vegetarian and vegan cuisine in central Ponta Delgada. They have a small lunch menu and a larger dinner menu. We had a fantastic lunch with a creamy vegetable soup, vegan cream of mushroom pasta and a chocolate raspberry mousse for dessert. Great service and lovely quaint atmosphere. Highly recommended!

The food was ok but it definitely didn't live up to the expectations based on previous reviews. Some dishes like the cannelloni were very salty. Service was a touch slow but overall very attentive and friendly. Had much better meals in Ponta Delgada and in Sao Miguel, go out and explore!

First off, fair warning: the food in the Azores overall is pretty bad. I had very low expectations for food and wine in the Azores as we primarily went for the terrain and outdoors experiences, not the food. However, the food was especially bad across the island of Sao Miguel. Out of multiple lunches and dinners, we only had 2-3... More

It's hard to find vegetarian food in the Azores! In most places, you're pretty much down to eating the vegetables off a meat or fish dish, or sticking to cheese. But this place is fantastic, at least for dinner (reservations a must!). We tried to go for lunch but too long a line and too little choice. So we reserved... More

Must book in advance. The place is small and has a home like feeling. The food was good, and so was the staff. Would recommend, if you want to save the world, one bite at a time.
