Enjoyed the seafood stew (four types of fish) it was 40euros and good for two or three people. Lots of veggies in it. Had the garlic bread which was awesome. Cinnamon ice cream is a must. I had a glass of wine which was a crazy large pour. Overly lit restaurant so if you are expecting romance it's not here.... More

Hotel recommended and we were pleased with food and most of service. They sent van to pick us up. Fish was good; veggies in foil good; friends liked muscles and fish chunks; however, veggies I pointed to on menu were 3 euro and charged 5; same for friends; ordered tap water and we were charged for bottled water. Didn't argue... More

We enjoyed our visit to Cais 20. It was a 2.5 km walk from the Lince Hotel. I'm glad we walked because parking in the area of the restaurant is hard to find. This is a very busy restaurant and we were lucky to find a table. We arrived around 7:30 pm prior to the dinner rush. Our meal was... More

On vacation in Ponta Delgada, more than one person recommended Cais 20 for seafood. Our hotel made a reservation for us and arranged for the restaurant's car service. When we arrived, we were seated a small table near the servers' entrance to the bar - a chaotic spot. When we asked for a better/quieter table they moved us over one.... More

The guy at the front desk of our hotel recommended this restaurant to us. A server from the restaurant picked us up at our hotel and took us there for dinner. My parents ordered the lemon chicken, which was excellent. My daughtered ordered the pork chops. She didnt like the Sauce that was covering her chops. I ordered a hamburger... More

My second visit. The place is under refurbishment these days. Food is good but not nothing special. Good variety of snacks, shellfish and main courses offered are okay. The "prego" is the best to try. Expensive regional wines. Service is courteous but there is a lack of attention. Parking would be a problem. It seems that all island is trying... More

We went there for dinner and some days later for lunch (it´s that good). The shelfish is very good, very fresh and well made. The meat is very good too (tender as butter, it melts on the mouth). I tryed dessert and it was ok, nothing remarkable. The service is ok. The price is not for a daily basis.

Recommended by my Hotel. Filled with locals. Nice walk along the coast to the restaurant or they will pick you up! Looked like loads of fresh seafood. The garlic bread was amazing. The limpets came out sizzling and the cinnamon ice cream is a little piece of heaven. My waiter was quick and very entertaining. My only reservation is that... More

I have been twice to this restaurant but i need to say that we had a good meal both times. However for the price paid we should get better quality...... diversity is quality... For the same money in the mainland we could get much better food. I guess that it's due to lack of competition.....
