It’s tucked away and the view isn’t great but the restaurant has a great heart and English speaking waiters who take time to explain the varied local food on the menu. There is always locally caught fish and local drinks. It’s definitely worth a try...More

The small town of Velas does not have a huge number of restaurants in the sense that most of the eateries are cafés/bars/snack bars. The Naval Club is an exception. It has a menu with plenty of choice for meat, fish, as well as simpler...More

We were here for a number of hours drinking a few bottles of wine. The server we had here was the best server we had on our entire trip to the Azores. The food was good also but we would be back for the service!
