Eating

The best eats are in concentrated in Centro and Lagoa da Conceicão, with worthwhile drive-worthy seafood located in the Azorean-founded enclaves of Pântano do Sul on the island's south end and Santo Antônio de Lisboa in the north. For catches straight from the fishermen, inland's Costa da Lagoa is perfection for food and atmosphere. Order tainha (mullet) in season (May to July) and fresh oysters in Ribeirão da Ilha.
