Enchanting location, breathtaking Sunsets. Nicely furnished, all waiters are kind in spite of being very very busy. Good wines but especially very good dishes (especially fish). I went everynight during my staying in Pico and enjoyed each time more!!!

This a great spot for local Azorean Food. Very well cooked. I had the stewed octopus and was divinal. Pico islands wine are great, specially the whites, the restaurant has room to improve in their local wines list. The service is friendly.
