My family and I had a stop over at this restaurant during a boat ride. I love the view of the sea from the restaurant and the mean is quite nice but a bit pricy.

We visited this place whilst On holiday on a boat that we had chartered. We arrived and hooked on to a mooring and shortly after, a little boat came out and offered to take us to the restaurant. What service! The little bay is so picturesque - we couldn't believe our luck. We had the lobster with a green salad... More

On the Island... Small restaurant with full infrastructure and even the pool for customers... Great selection of traditional fish stew Moqueca and other sea food.

We were out for a day on the boat and stopped hear for lunch. The staff are friendly and helpful. The kitchen is open and looked very clean and well equipped. The bathrooms were good but I was unsure why they have listerine, perhaps it is for when the parties start. The food was excellent and we tried the local... More

Known for its annual 1000-guests celebrity party, an exclusive restaurant located on the Vitorino Beach. Excellent food for a higher price, compared to the average restaurant on the islands.

Looks like paradise, and has taste of it too. Impressive new modern big cuisine was first thing I´ve noticed as soon as entered. Hard to find a beautiful industrial kitchen like that on an island. The fishfood is very fresh and tasteful, service a little lazy, but ok. Nobody uses to be in a hurry at a place like this.... More
