We love Azorean any time, but we always love meeting friends for their $5 small plates of Tapas every Tuesday. Its a nice weekly tradition.

We sat at the bar, the restaurant had a nice vibe. The service was excellent, we chose an appetizer(Azorean flatbread) and Sauteed Pork fillets(the moulay was delicious). I agree with another patron regarding the bread with oil dip.

Fine Portuguese & Azorean meals with friendly service at moderate prices. Not near the touristy area - you need to seek it out, but it's well worth it.
