Time Out Says

4 out of 5 stars

The name refers to a town in the Azorean island of São Miguel. There is a reason for it: 80% of the restaurant's beef and fish come from the Azores. The dishes are mostly Portuguese-Japanese confections, devised by talented sushiman Paulo Morais. If you don't fancy the adventurous stuff, there is traditional sushi and grilled fish; if you like to mix shellfish and red meat, there's a whole section of the menu dedicated to surf and turf.

Time Out tips:

– For €30 you are entitled to 30 slices of raw, marinated, smoked, cured or braised fish.

– If you're considering an Azorean vacation, start here to get familiar with the fishes.

– The sushi is a demonstration of Paulo Morais's craft.
