  • We arrive at Peter Cafe, so renowned. Ask if you can have a table to dine, we are told that it is not because they have a lot of reservations. We are then asked to hear in the outdoors if they place: from outside they sent back into. So we decide to book for the next day, h. 19:30; the gang leader advises us to show up 15 minutes earlier, or if at 19:30 we, obviously the table we give away; (this is to be expected from a restaurant-winning like that ... Oh sorry!) Here comes the long awaited day, try this popular place so the food finally. We arrive at 19:15, following the advice of the boss. Don't make us sit, missing 15 minutes to our reservation, make us wait outside. At 19:30 we are there. Our table waiting for us. (A little like pie making cool out the window in American movies). We sit, we order. After an hour and a half there comes a "SOP" of garlic bread that we hadn't ordered, so much so that arrival at laida conclusion that there will still be a while to wait. Here come the dishes, obviously if you forget one. (But why bother? were untouchable these sir ... I'm just 24 hours that I care to eat a heck of roasted Octopus). Regular food, even if you want to eat fish at this point pescatevelo alone that saved in time and especially money. A place renowned that uses the name. In the bathroom there are currents of gnats from who knows what rainforests. Bring patience, optimism, cards, spirit of adventure and a little healthy sarcasm ... a bit much.

  • The atmosphere in the cafe is nice. It is there dirt cheap though, but unfortunately not really clean. Eating in the display case didn't look really inviting; OA fly on it. We have it but at a drink.

  • You can not leave Horta before visiting this place. It is always crowded and atmosphere is very nice. I took a drink but my glass smelt badly and after having a look at the kitchen is not a good idea.  more »
