To see Visiting Angra

Bullring roundabout

Visiting Angra do Heroísmo
Bullring roundabout

One of the most exuberant statues was placed in the appropriate place – a bullfight scene occupies the roundabout next to the bullring.

It makes sense!

I recommend O Chico

Our first dinner in Angra was a very good experience. I had a great pepper steak, with a so good sauce that I had to order a second dish of chips to let Fernanda help me finishing it.

The meat was tender, Fernanda’s shrimps were tasty, but that sauce….

Positive impression A Barrica

Eating in Angra – Barrica

I couldn’t come to Azores without tasting tuna fish in a local recipe.

It happened in this restaurant. Grilled and presented upon a sweet potato and vegetables, it was something new as expected.

Not an outstanding meal, but a good one.

I recommend A Tasca das Tias

We almost entered for the first dinner, attracted by the good look, but as Fernanda only wanted a soup, we postponed to the next lunch. It was very good – I had spaghetti with shrimps, and Fernanda fish fillet with rice. Both of us tasted both dishes, no one could decide which one was the best. Good choice!

Positive impression Beira Mar restaurant

Before leaving the continent, a friend born in Terceira recommended us to eat… something in Beira Mar.

I forgot that “something”, but couldn’t forget the place, because it was our hotel.

We had a good dinner, a shrimp salad and a steak with mushrooms sauce, calmly served in an almost empty restaurant, at a fair price.

I recommend Beira Mar hotel

Sleeping in Angra
Beira mar 2

Located just in front of the best beach in Angra, this hotel was a very good option in winter, with the price reflecting the low season. In a classical building, the interior suggests that it has been recently refurbished. A look of simple modernity and cleanliness, with a comfortable room. A simple and good buffet for breakfast, where only the bread, was arguable, needing to be toasted.
