Nothing prepared me for this quaint seafood restaurant by the coast. Their buffet had an incredible selection of great tasting seafood dishes. If you care to leave a note they will tape it on the roof or walls. Great views of the beach!

"Bar and Restaurante do Arante" has history, authenticity and character. The food of the island, (Acores Island immigrants heritage) is not the most sophisticated cuisine on... More

We went here two times during our stay. The first time we had the shrimp risotto which was really good. The second time we tried the Sequenca do mare (mix of different seafood and fish) and both of us got really sick from the seafood.

Very interesting place. Where people around the world write notes and stick it to the walls. We had a big platter of seafood and was really good.

Great seafood experience at the beach of Pantano do Sul. Unique atmosphere with all the messages left by former guests, attentive staff. Great portions - a platter of two easily serves three. Good taste and quality!

Loved, loved, loved this place. Five of us sampled cachaça and caipirinha. We wrote notes and had some of the best seafood ever!! Quaint and charming. Picturesque view. Laid back. Comfortable, with in rushed time to socialize and visit. The ideal lunch.

Thank Dot478
