We love this place and go here regularly. Try the pork and little necks, bachalau, or the bitoque. None of those will disappoint. Bol Feijao for dessert.

This is not your average dining experience. This is traditional island cooking served up in a family friendly environment by the owner and her wonderful staff. The food is made fresh to order. There is a small but varied menu with a number of specials....More
