We were attracted by the menu but the chicken breast was way too salty and dead dry. The other dishes were flat with overcooked vegetables. No place to eat. The service varied from experienced but not very interested to inexperienced but friendly.

The refurbishing of this historical fort is spectacular. The room was spacious, with modern amenities, but still retained character. The hotel itself is centrally located, super easy to get around from Horta. And, finally, it has an amazing view!

We had a nice lunch on a rainy day by the pool. The view is great. The food and service are just okay. Still worth a visit to sit out and see all of the historic touches from the fort.

In our first day in Horta, we have discovered the restaurant. We have settled down the table by pool and old castle walls and sea beyond. Our wonderful, attentive waitress helped us with the menu and wine to choose. I have had the perfectly cooked...More

The building and ambiance is very lovely. The menu is good, varied but pricey. The service looks very special and high class and done properly but so slow. The food when it came was excellent and v tasty, try the azorean stew.

I reviewed the restaurant in the Hotel section of Trip Advisor, but basically this was the best meal we had in Horta and I expect its ranking in TripAdvisor to steadily rise.
