Really a nice place with a great view on the ocean and Faial. We recommend to go for the basic but excellent fish of the day or squids. The service is really nice.

Best part of the restaurant is the sunset over the island of Faial. Unfortunately, the food isn't much to write home about and way too expensive. A big disappointment.

Ancoradouro is the best place to eat in Pico. It was out third time at Pico, clearly the restaurant offer has improved in the last years but ancoradouro remains the best place - great Portuguese dishes , great Pico wine and friendly service

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!!!
