Por do Sol

Reviewed By SusanVMPope - Bandon, Ireland

This is a super little restaurant in a sweet little village, serving lunch and dinner. Friendly staff, beautiful situation, sunsets are stunning in the evening. Great local foods, beautifully cooked. A good selection, not many vegetarian options, (ongoing problem throughout the Azores, generally speaking). lots of locals eating here, which is a good sign. we struggled with restaurants on Flores island but this was a real treat. Get yourselves there!

Restaurante Casa do Rei

Reviewed By AnoniemJ1 - IJsselstein, The Netherlands

We ate here after coming back from South Lages walking tour. The restaurant has outside and indoor dining. We chose to sit outside. Very friendly owner and staff. Many choices in starters, main course (both fish and meat) and desserts. We got little 'amuse' to start with: home baked bread and different mousse.
We chose goat cheese salad, which was nice but a bit dry, and tzaziki, which was delicious with the home baked bread. Then fish in sesame crust and veal steak. Both delicious. You can choose different side plates, e.g. Rice, potatoes or even couscous. We finished with ice cream and fruits.
All in all enjoyed the restaurant atmosphere and good food. Just be aware that you can only pay cash!!

Really good food! We had the chicken curry and bread. The curry wasn't spicy and the chicken was very easy to eat. The bread was delicious! The atmosphere is calm and relaxing. If eating there in the evenings make sure you make a reservation otherwise...MoreThank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure to have you at Jonah's, come back anytime, you are very welcome.

O Forno Transmontano

Reviewed By Guenter H - Neu-Ulm, Germany

This restaurant was a recommendation from other Germans, we met. You might be surprised if you make reservation and they ask you whether you want to have fish or meat. My wife took the fish, me the meat. They do not have a menu card. This should not keep you away from this choise. The mother is the master of the kitchen and she truly deserves this title. We had the white wine, very cool presented. First I was not sure but after some minutes it developed its flavour. They
offered us a Grappa for free. We met this family first time but felt at home at once. If you go to Flores I urge not to miss this charming place. But you have to make reservation.

Das Flores Cafe & Wine

Das Flores Café & Wine is the perfect place to enjoy a light meal such as salads, sandwiches and soups with a glass of wine or a delicious pastry with a cup of coffee while you wait at the airport!

Reviewed By seafare74 - SF, California

Located upstairs in the Santa Cruz Airport just next to the security screening area. They mainly serve sandwiches, soups and Deserts. The service is very good as are their prices, especially for airport fare. They design is modern and clean with a Reading corner stocked with travel guides.
