The atmosphere is somewhat mediocre, but hey, it's Portugal, that's the way they do it! The waiter was friendly and the fish we ate was just good, as well as the octopus salad we ordered. I would go there again.

Enjoyed some grilled Boca Negra. Got to choose the fish and we shared the dish. Came with potatoes and veggies and was perfect for my gluten free diet. The fish came out on a boat shaped platter, very nice presentation. Staff was also very nice....More

Situated on the island of s. Miguel, in the municipality/Concelho of Lagoa, next to the fish Auction, you will find the Restaurant the Drifter with a simple decor in a cosy atmosphere. Great big variety of Seafood entries and start your meal where the diversity of choice is extensive. It is a place of reference on the gastronomic area because they have daily service for lunch as well as à la carte service. Is a mandatory stopover for tasting the specialties with the Azorean sea fish varied dishes of cod, Octopus, among others. For meat lovers nothing better that created in the Azores this being made with great seasonings so you can appreciate its true flavor. Have a terrace as well as service can count on Sportv in football days. A friendly and professional staff, this informal atmosphere will no doubt provide a good meal accompanied by fine wines and delicious desserts and finished with homemade.
