Fodor's Expert Review Canto da Doca

$$ Horta Dinner

When visiting a volcanic island, what’s better than cooking food on your very own hot lava stone? That’s the concept behind this bustling family-owned eatery, in a former fisherman’s storage building near the harbor, where you can choose from a wide selection of fish, seafood, and meat (limited vegetarian options are also available) that you grill to your liking at your table; save room for the cookie pudding, layers of cookie with buttercream frosting borrowed from the family’s grandmother’s recipe.
