One of my favorite family restaurants in São Miguel, Azores to eat super fresh fish. In this case I ordered the fish casserole (original name is “molho de peixe”) which comes with 3 types of fish. Tou can fill all the flavors of the dish, from the tomato, parsley, peppers, onions to the olive oil. It’s a light meal but full of fresh flavors that is good for you. I can’t get enough of it! All the dishes in the restaurant are carefully prepared and very delicious 😋 the dish on the other side is “chicharros” (horse-mackerel) that are typical in the island too, easy to bite because are tiny and yami. I recommend starting with the fish soup and some other starters like octopus and fava beans, or you can pick some starters and share with your beloved ones so you all can enjoy this amazing food. Don’t forget to end with the in-house made pastries made of milk 🤤

Pleasant waiter, good food. I normally don’t eat fish, but this was very good.

Molho de pixie (fish stew - house specialty) is the most traditional and delicious food experience we’ve had so far. Cozy family restaurant tucked away location is a true gem. Quick service and the food came out quickly as well, was nervous reading reviews after we sat as we’re eager to continue exploring. Absolutely worth a stop.

It's all about the fish

Cantinho do Cais is a simple family run restaurant where the menu is specialized in fish, and fish here is prime.

Everyday we refill our stocks with fresh fish from our azorean sea. You can tell it by your taste.

The main protagonists in our menu are the fish soup as a starter, the Fish Stew as the main course and the exclusively homemade white-cheese cupcakes for the finish. Also feel free to ask a grilled/fried catch of the day, as you wish.

Our restaurant has three dinning areas: a terrace with view for the mountains, a main dinning room with AC and another room with TV. The decoration and atmosphere are simple.
