Our history

20 years of history always thinking of you

It all started in 1998 with a small snack bar;
In 1999 it is the turn to make available to the public the terrace, a large and pleasant space; Following this dynamic of expansion, in 2000 the first room of the restaurant in the 1st.

More recently, in recognition of our very own way of serving, we were encouraged to once again expand our service areas. Thus, in 2002, they were enlarged and refurbished: the kitchen, the snack bar and the restaurant, now with two rooms with capacity for 130 people.

It is in this family-friendly, large and pleasant family-run restaurant located on the west side of Terceira Island, where livestock are queen, we offer our customers a variety of dishes of recognized quality, some of them from regional cuisine where we are installed, served in dignified spaces, with a regional touch and made in a large and highly equipped kitchen, where all the beef and pork meats come from own production.
