We came across this place by chance and we were very impressed. The food was the best we had in Sao Miguel; blood sausage, cheese, bread, shrimp, salmon, steak and lots of fresh vegetables. The service was great and the views from the top floor were outstanding. Highly recommend.

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident when driving along the northern half of the island. Thankfully we stopped and enjoyed a very good meal. The food was fresh and tasty. My husband especially enjoyed the shrimp he had for lunch. The restaurant overlooks a farmer's field and then to the ocean, and we spent a very pleasant hour watching... More

Nice restaurant with a great view! Outside looks like a modern office but is a good restaurant. Sit outside and enjoy the view! Food is OK, not the best but good / decent.

While here, I had the lapas (limpets) and codfish. Both were tasty. As for the atmosphere, you can tell that most customers are regulars. Walking in I received no direction if I was to pre-order at the counter, wait to be seated, or seat myself.

We had the beef chop and chicken stroganoff. Price was reasonable, wait staff was very friendly and they had the best desserts of the islands.

Food is nothing special but ok. It is a bit between cafetaria and restaurant. It is alongside the road so pay attention when going there not to miss it.

We arrived at this restaurant expecting it to be the usual portuguese fair, meat and chips, fish etc. but turned out better than expected. We had some nice starters, blood sausage with pineapple and some kind of pork rilette with olive. Both were really good, the sausage had a nice smokey flavour and the rilette was very nice as well.... More
