in são roque do pico, we had a great gastronomic surprise. casa âncora, by the hand of the chef timur abuziarov, is a modern restaurant using fresh produce from local fishermen and farmers. amazing how the chef managed to seize the azorean flavor in a unique and creative way. a must to do on the island, with the restaurant and lounge just by the sea. perfect at sunset.
the best vegetarian restaurante we ever visit. its not easy to cook vegetarian or vegan food, but “rotas” really knows how to do it. simple and delicious food at a comfortable place. their version of tiramisu with “bolo levedo” (the traditional sweet bread) is to eat and ask for more. often fully booked so make sure to reserve a table.
