Ti Choa

May 21, 2011

Name: Ti’Choa

Location: Serreta

Directions: Follow the coastal road north, through Biscoitos and Altares, all the way around to the far side of the island to Serreta.  Once in Serreta, pass through the forrest area and the two look out spots.  The restaurant will be just past this on the right hand side.  There is a sign on the building (pictured above) but it is small.  On the left side of the road, just across from the restaurant is a rock with a sign “Ao Pico”, which may also work as a marker of location.  There is parking just before the restaurant on the right side of the road.  On a clear day make sure to look across the ocean for a view of Graciosa, Sao Jorge and Pico.

Hours: Noon-2:30 pm and 6:30-10 pm (although people are likely to stay longer), closed Sundays; reservation encouraged

Phone Number: 295 906 673

Cuisine: Home cooked Portuguese

English Speaking Staff: No, although some speak a little

English Menu: No

Brought to the table: Bread, Cheese, Butter, Jam and a variety of appetizers if wanted (like sausages)

Family run restaurant with a fun atmosphere and a great view off the west coast of the island.  Perfect for dinner and a glimpse of the sunset.  The food is all homemade, including the bread.  Serving traditional Portuguese food, this place is great for large parties and small.  In a group setting your best option is to all order the alcatra (traditional dish of the island).  This will come with many starters, including cheese and sausage.  The party setting will offer many meat dishes, and not just the alcatra.  It is a lot of food for a great price.  In smaller groups, there is a menu to select items from, including fish.  Towards the end of the evening, there may be some live music, which makes for a fun way to end the evening.  Speaking of fun ways to end the evening, this family makes a homemade blackberry liquor is that is not only delicious, but worth the drive around the island.  It is a good idea to call in advance, and if for a Friday night, with a larger group, you should try calling a few weeks in advance so they can prepare for you.  For anyone in a group not eating meat, you can request fish in advance.  Don’t pass up this fun opportunity for traditional island food.
