Reviewed 25 September 2018

We stopped by during the day and made a reservation with Jonah. Some dishes need to be ordered in advance and we were glad we did because the octopus was some of the best we have ever tasted (so tender and flavorful). My husband asked for the recipe and Jonah was kind enough to email it to him. The fresh fish dish was also cooked perfectly with delicious potatoes. We had some really nice wine from Pico and all around it was an excellent dining experience. We recommend Jonah's if you are on Flores as it would be worth the drive even if not staying in Faja Grande.

Lovely food and people. Must book. Traditional food well cooked. Cash only. Limited menu but daily specials to be reserved in advance , like octopus!

Jonah and his wife are very friendly. We booked beforehand on our first night on Flores by Facebook because we wanted to have the octopus (necessary to book beforehand). And it was really great. Not too many tables, so the place was also very quiet. The food was really excellent. We had the octopus, which was superb! The kids had the Stroganoff, and the veal. They were also very happy. The desert (Tiramisu) was heavenly.
Wanted to come back a second evening, but too bad they had no availability anymore.

No reservation = 1/3 of the menu not available = no fish.
I noticed to the owner that it was wired.
The answer was : "you are not welcome here"...
Bad experience

E volto a dizer-lhe que não é bem-vindo aqui!
Não tolero faltas de respeito. A forma arrogante e sarcástica que usou quando o informei de que os pratos que pretendia são confeccionados apenas sob reserva (e está escrito em negrito no próprio menu) não é admissível. Para sua informação, praticamente todos os outros clientes que estavam na sala e presenciaram o sucedido
apoiaram a minha atitude.

Aprenda!

The homemade food (excelent "papagayo" fish), the good and family enviroment and the tasty sobremesas (deserts) make our dinner in Ponta Faja a great experience! We have felt like home.
Thank you!
