Ate here several times. The food is amazing. The Alcatra is my personal favorite. But the plate of the day is always amazing. Never had a bad meal

We had been told many times to try Caneta when on the northern side of Terceira. We are at the "snack bar" area which offered plenty of options and is more similar to an American type of lunch. It's a quicker option as well if you want to get in and out. We had burgers and they were terrific!!! It's... More

This restaurant has a newly-renovated cafe on the lower level that serves island cuisine - great value, large portions, good wine. We only visited the upstairs dining room and read the menu, but it was very elegant and offered a wide range of upscale choices. The cafe staff were just super - friendly and attentive without being obsequious, proud of... More

Caneta serves well prepared fresh seafood as well as meat dishes. The atmosphere is charming and captures some of the island's flavor. Food is prepared below and sent to the serving floor via dumbwaiter. One note of caution: parking is behind the restaurant and the entrance is narrow.

We had rented a car and was driving around this beautiful island as lunch time hunger hit us. We happened to drive by Caneta and thought we would stop. What good fortune!! We had no idea it was ranked as one of the top 5 restaurants in Terceira. The reviews were correct. What a fabulous find! We enjoyed skewered steak... More

What a gem! I had the conger fish stew, which was amazing! The fish was cooked just right, and I received a plentiful serving. We also tried barnacles, which Terceira is known for. They were really tasty and definitely fresh! We enjoyed this restaurant so much, my family ate here twice on our trip! Definitely worth checking out! I would... More

Caneta was recommended by several people, so we definitely wanted to try it while on Terceira. Cabs and buses are available to this area from Angra do Heroismo, but we stopped while driving. The parking area is down a side street, kind of behind the restaurant. The dining area is on the second floor and is a fairly big restaurant... More

We stopped here for lunch as part of a tour. The Alcatra with sweet bread was delicious! The sweet vinegar pudding is intense in flavor and unlike anything I've ever tasted. I highly recommend Caneta!
