The food was superb, every bit of it. The service also was excellent. The waiter, whose name I don't know but who is in the pictures of other reviewers, gave us great recommendations from the wine to the dessert. He was extremely friendly. In fact, I have never seen a waiter love his/her job so much. To the managers/owners: make... More

We happened to stop in here on our drive around the island. How serendipitous! The octopus stew with boiled potatoes is incredible. The Mr. truly enjoyed his steak and fries in cream sauce. Europe has a difficult time doing steak well, surprising, considering the number of cows here...all in all, great food, great service. Excellent.

Nice environment and excellent food. Me, as a vegetarian, did not expect for a decent vegetarian meal, but as it happened I did enjoy a delicious dish! The Spanish paella was what I ordered, and to drink I had white wine sangria, which was also very nice. On top of that, the waiter was extremely nice! I suspect he is... More

I would recommend this restaurant to all my family and friends. Our soups were delicious and we both enjoyed our entrees. I particularly like how the grilled squid was prepared with garlic, peppers, and shrimp. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas too!

This restaurant was recommended as on of the best in Praia da Vitoria by our cab driver. He was absolutely right; the food, ambiance and service was perfect. I can't remember the name of what my husband and I ordered, but wow!. It was a hot clay pot with mussels, clams, shrimp, swordfish, grouper and potatoes in a cream sauce.... More

We asked our tour guide for a recommendation on a lace to eat. We had a rental car which is needed to get from one side of the island to the other. Parking was easy near the beach, the staff was friendly and understood english. I recommend the fresh local red fish (red snapper).
