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.

Maybe one of the best place in Azzorre where to eat fish. Really fresh and not so small portion. Moreover, a really great location with an incredible view on the ocean, better during the sunset.
