This is a family restaurant therefore the ambience is relaxed and cozy. The food is excellent that is why I chose it as one of my favourite restaurants in Graciosa Island. From the fish dishes I advise the fried octopus. It to die for! On the other hand, the “cozido à Portuguesa” (Portuguese cozido) is my favourite meat dish. To end your meal nothing like a Queijada da Graciosa, the Island’s traditional pastry.
