Restaurante Caneta

Reviewed By DandLtravel - Burbank, California

Don't be fooled, this place is NOT in Angra. Rather, it is in Altares on the northwestern side of Terceira. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience. Odd, only place we've eaten whilst on the island where we had to pay for bread (.50 €) and butter (.50 €) ~ and per person to boot. Not a deal breaker, just odd.
Tried the local delicacy "cracas" or barnacles. They can be ordered by the piece, which is nice (.60 € each). Two were enough for us. Served cold, they are very salty. Traditional island dish of Alcatra (11.50 €) was divine. Meant to be ladled over a bread on the sweet side, found it better when accompanied by the rustic bread. The Picanha (15.50 €) prepared rare was quite a treat. Meal rounded off with Doce de Vinegre (3.00 €) espresso (.80 €). Good bottle of red wine (Convento da Tomina) was 14.90 €.
Definitely on the expensive side, but mostly worth it.

Restaurant Adega Lusitania

Reviewed By mkkk64 - Ochiltree, United Kingdom

Unfortunately when we visited they had a large party at one table approx 26 and their other tables filled up and the restaurant was full....ONE waiter and two people cooking. Service was very slow! My house steak was very tender and tasty but my husbands fish was not cooked properly. We didn't complain we could see they had bitten of more than they could chew!

Beira Mar Sao Mateus

Reviewed By Regina C - Irvine, California

Hubby had the fish soup and grilled swordfish which he rates a 4; I had the grilled octopus which I rate an outstanding 5. The octopus was very fresh and grilled just right. We both tried the barnacles, which was interesting - the "soup" tasted good but the meat seemed hardly worth the work they obviously put into it to clean it.
The restaurant is in the town adjacent to Angra - too long to walk so we took the Number 1 bus from Terceira Mar Hotel for 92 cents each way. Worth the quick excursion for the experience!

O Chico

Reviewed By rollite - Toronto

only went here because #1 tripadvisor pick was closed. What a great little gem, food and service were fantastic. Everything is made to order, so order cheap beer and enjoy conversation with friends. You can get a meal for under €15. We ordered shrimp appetizers and they were yummy, got both grilled squid and calamari and those were also good. My coworker ordered squid stew, it didn’t look appetizing but actually tasted delicious. Overall wood recommended this restaurant and gladly return for another meal

Marcelinos Bar e Steak House

Reviewed By Erin F - Cleveland, Ohio

I have been putting off this review because I don't know the words to explain how phenomenal my experience was here. We passed it on the first night because it looked empty, but learned the downstairs is the bar and upstairs is the restaurant. I ordered the flamed Marcelino steak and I will forever be craving more. It was flamed in orange juice, garlic, butter, and red wine. When the dish was being cooked at the table, other people in the restaurant changed their orders to the Marcelino it smelled so good. Cozy atmosphere, great owner/chef, and generous portions. Wish we wouldn't have passed it up the first night so I could have had time to visit this place twice.

Casa de Pasto A Canadinha

Reviewed By Sarment0 - Brasília, Brazil

A small restaurant where you can try the delicious delicacies of the Azores. Ask for the Alcatra, a dish made with cubes of beef slowly cooked for 4 hours in wine and special spices in a crock which is sealed and baked in a wood stove. Served with boiled potatoes and the good bread of the island. As an appetizer, the Lapas also deserve being tasted. They are a kind of oyster which are grilledbin the half shell and come steaming to the table in their delicious juice. Fish is also a good choice. Very fresh and cooked to perfection.

Cais D'Angra

Reviewed By nc-hoosier - Charlotte

Ate dinner with my husband and daughter before attending a New Years Concert. Server did not speak English so we had a little difficulty communicating. The bread appetizer was good. My husbands tuna steak was cold and had to be sent back. I had a soup and salad which was fine just not anything special. We did not have dessert. There are better places to visit.

Quinta dos Acores

Reviewed By nelis_one

This is a place where you can buy yummy souvenirs and eat and drink at the same time.
The food comes from the owner’s farm (beef, veggies and dairy) and you can definitely taste it.
We went to get the ice cream and it’s good value for money.

Nice little café in central Angra. Tried the coffee and fresh pineapple juice that tasted resfreshing in the heat. The outside bar is built around a huge tree. Don't miss the tranquillity of the botanical garden, it's just on the opposite side of the street.

Reviewed By O6486AJcraigb - El Dorado Hills, California

We are upstairs in the restaurant, they have a downstairs with sandwiches and pizza. Upstairs is elegant! The food was delicious, the presentation was amazing.the only complaint I had is why would they put pink salt and olive oil on a chocolate moose?
The hake Fish was amazing!
The beef was delicious, but very tough. This is not a cheap restaurant, but it was worth every Euro!
