We had lunch here and sampled some of the local fare .... black pudding and sausage to start, Alcatra for the main and a pleasant sweet to round it off. Everything excellent and well justifies it high rating on trip advisor. Watch though - listed as an Angra restaurant but well out of town and needs transport.

We went to this restaurant for the steak. We had the steak hanging on a skewer the had garlic butter dripping down the meat. Oh so good! The meat was so tender you use your butter knife to cut through it. They have plenty of wines to choose from. They also have beer and liquor. It was an excellent choice... More

We didn't make a reservation and the restaurant was busy. After a short wait, we were seated downstairs. The service was great. The Alcatra is outstanding. The desserts are not as sweet as they are in other restaurants.

Ate here several times. The food is amazing. The Alcatra is my personal favorite. But the plate of the day is always amazing. Never had a bad meal

We had been told many times to try Caneta when on the northern side of Terceira. We are at the "snack bar" area which offered plenty of options and is more similar to an American type of lunch. It's a quicker option as well if you want to get in and out. We had burgers and they were terrific!!! It's... More

This restaurant has a newly-renovated cafe on the lower level that serves island cuisine - great value, large portions, good wine. We only visited the upstairs dining room and read the menu, but it was very elegant and offered a wide range of upscale choices. The cafe staff were just super - friendly and attentive without being obsequious, proud of... More

Caneta serves well prepared fresh seafood as well as meat dishes. The atmosphere is charming and captures some of the island's flavor. Food is prepared below and sent to the serving floor via dumbwaiter. One note of caution: parking is behind the restaurant and the entrance is narrow.
