Restaurants in Terceira Island
Restaurants in Terceira Island serve the best ingredients of the Azores archipelago, giving them a unique touch. Here are some of my favourite restaurants.
Restaurants in Terceira Island serve wonderful food.
Usually they offer the tasty regional gastronomy and have a first class service.
Fresh fish and seafood, along with delicious rump beefs are some of the menu stars presented at the Island’s restaurants.
In fact, they are as magnificent as the island.
My top 5 restaurants in Terceira Island
There are great restaurants in Terceira Island and it wasn´t easy to choose the ones listed on this top and I have the feeling that a few others could also rank it.
I made my choice not based not only on the quality of the food served but also on the ambience of the restaurant; the friendliness of the staff was another important criteria for my choice.
Bottom line is that the ones suggested are wonderful restaurants and I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I did.

The location of the restaurant is one of the plus of Os Moinhos. Located on an old watermill, the decoration is enhanced by the stone walls and the wooden beams. Besides it has one of the best views of all restaurants in Terceira Island. The cozy ambience is only surpassed by the food. I advise the rump beef or the seafood served on a clay tile.

The rump beef is absolutely heavenly. For those who prefer fish, I advise the limpets’ rice, but the grilled octopus is also a good choice. Besides, Caneta has one of the calm and cozy ambiences of all restaurants in Terceira Island.

Ambientes com Sabores
Address: Rua Direita 80
9700-066 Angra do Heroísmo
Phone: +351 295 216 517
Ambientes com Sabores is one of the best restaurants in Terceira Island. It serves the traditional Azorean ingredients with a contemporary touch. The forkbeard dishes are highly recomended.
Restaurante Mar a Mesa
Address: Avenida Álvaro Martins Homem – Edificio Beira-Mar
9760-412 Praia da Vitória
Phone: +351 295 513 781
Located on the main avenue by the sea this restaurant combines regional products with fusion cuisine. Besides the great service I just love the view over the Praia da Vitória bay and marina. But what really conquered me were the tasting experiences with typical dishes like limpets with morcela sausage or cheese with yams. This is main reason why Mar a Mesa is on my top 5 restaurants in Terceira Island.
Restaurante O Pescador
Address: Rua Constantino José Cardoso 11
9760-441 Praia da Vitoria
Phone: +351 295 513 495
O Pescador has one of the best wines lists of all restaurants in Terceira Island. Of course, the emphasis goes to the Portuguese wines. To go with one of the amazing wines try the fillet mignon with São Jorge cheese sauce.
