Get reservations or you’ll eat at 1130 pm! Still worth it! Great Azores cuisine— esp. fish stew. Large menu and nice setting. And great selection of local beers.

This was probably our best meal of our 5-day trip. It's small, lively and offers an interesting variety of food. I'd love to go back to Ponta Delgada and would certainly return to A Tasca.
