Came here for dinner on a trip to Gloucester. Lisbon octopus was tasty but a bit fatty. The Gloucester fisherman's seafood was well fried but lacked stone taste, and the potatoes were too soft. Would give 3 stars for the food alone, but Service was goodand the atmosphere excellent.

This Greek restaurant and bar has unusual Greek dishes and classic seafood, also. The decor is modern Greek, impeccably clean, spacious and accomodating for small and large parties. The bar is happy without being raucus, great spot for a couple, a bunch of friends or a solo visit. Food at the bar is same as restaurant and is excellent.

What a great assortment of choices there really is a little something for everyone. Portuguese cuisine. Welcoming atmosphere it's not a large place so small groups. Good wine and dried ks options

I will drive as far as necessary for good lemon chicken, which is why I tried the Azorean, after finding the menu on the internet. It was WONDERFUL. Loved the atmosphere, our server (Sebastian) was fantastic and so friendly, and the food - well - I can't wait to go back! My husband had the Fish Cataplana and was amazed... More

My husband found this place while we were on a long weekend away. He had visited the Azores years ago while in the military. He has always raved about the food and wine. We were not disappointed. This restaurant is great if you want to be adventurous and try new things. The tower of tapas is what we settled on... More

The food is excellently prepared by Chef Manny who is from the Azores. The seafood is delicious and always fresh. The Wednesday night wine dinners are a special treat.

We've dined here several times, probably 50% of the time that we have dinner in Gloucester. I love the Azorean specialties in the daily specials - last time I had blowfish! Another time it was cheeses of the Azores, and another time octopus. The fish is always excellent, especially the cataplana dishes. The wines include some Azorean wines by the... More

I am a resident of Gloucester and have been to all of the resteraunts in town. This is one of my favorites which I go to once a week. During the winter months there are great nightly specials. For a reasonable price you can get a good portion of good food. I always sit at the bar, and the staff... More

This was our third visit to the Azorean. The first two times were excellent, last night was barely average. Started off with us having to ask twice for water, which never came with the lemon I requested. Ravioli app was overcooked to the point that the pasta was too chewy to eat (it was pan fried). I ate the filling... More

From tapas to apps to main courses - have never been disappointed. On the last visit we started with a couple of tapas plates - roasted potatoes with hot finger peppers and the fava beans with chourico. Both were fantastic. Mains included pork aletejana and a Cataplan fish plate. Both outstanding. The bonus is an excellent wine list (mostly Portuguese... More
