Very good food, service and outside view Feb 07, 2017
N38°31,587' W28°37,637' Genuíno restaurant is well known on Faial for its excellent seafood. During the summer season, reservations days ahead are mandatory, although the large restaurant has two floors to accommodate many guests. If available seating is available, the restaurant upstairs has a beautiful view over Porto Pim and the partly collapsed volcano of Monte da Guia. From our table next to the open windows we enjoyed the sunset over Porto Pim and the sudden cloudburst, washing away guests on the terrace of Taberna de Pim. The interior of the restaurant is themed around Genuíno's circumnavigate around the world sailing solo's. We had a little chat with him later.

In August 2016, we ordered as main dishes the grilled yellow mouth barracuda (bicuda grelhada) for €15. A special edition of the Frei Gigante CVIP 2015 for €16 accompanied our dinner. The barracuda was lovely prepared and tasted nice. Excellent job. The wine was good.

The service was good and personal, although this is a busy restaurant with large groups and families. Enjoying the food, wine and view, we overshot the expected moment of departure from the restaurant. Staff members improvised with tables and chairs to accommodate a large family with kids. Genuíno himself oversaw the whole operation.

Genuíno offers on the second floor a beautiful view outside in combination with excellent food and personal service. Very recommended.
