“Best fresh fish”

If you looking for fresh local fish or shellfish this is the place to go. Prices are ok and for the same price you'll eat there twice as much as in other places.

Great food. A good selection of fresh fish very well cooked. A tasty salad salad. The place is nice and the service is very good.

I think the story is better than the food. Fisherman fishes and his wife cooks. That may very well be, but then she better learn how to bake Tuna steak 'rare'. Now the steak looked same as veal chops, very well done. Salad is some raw carrot and cabbage and is very very small. Would not be our choice again.

The locals call this "the fisherman's place" because he does the catching, preparing and serving of some of the freshest fish in the area. While in the Azores every fish is fresh, here it felt like the fish jumped from the sea and onto the grill and then to your plate.
Family run, inexpensive, with a local community and family atmosphere, this was a very good spot to end a long day of exploring Flores. We started with the limpets cooked in the holy trinity of fish accompaniments-white wine, garlic and butter. Limpets are a grazing sea snail and you can choose to eat the whole thing or cut the lean sucker foot from rest of the body. Most people eat only the foot but the adventurous should try it both ways. From that buttery goodness we decided to try the conger and moreia eel and the white fish of the day, a dorado. The white fish was excellent, of course, but the surprise was the eel! Lighter, fluffier and tastier than the fish with larger and much less bones to pick out, I have to recommend anyone try it. Either kind was good but I prefered the Conger because it was thicker but lighter in consistency. We went a little overboard ordering a bottle of local wine and chocolate mousse but couldn't help it as everything was so good! The owner and his daughter were very nice though only the daughter spoke english so he would send her when we had questions. All told the meal came to $50, considering the quality of the food and all we had, I call that an amazing deal and fully recommend you stop in if you are lucky enough to find yourself in the area!

I ate the very best grilled lapas, very soft and fresh. Next the fish was also delicious.
The guy is friendly and I payed a mid-range price.
