This was our best meal in our time in Madeira. Service was friendly and attentive and the food was brilliant. Nice salads, lovely home made chips and the best steak and chicken. Deserts were a bit of a let down being the prepackaged stuff I associate with some Chinese restaurants in UK, but it did not overly detract from the... More

My husband had steak on a skewer (which is more the size of a poker for a fire than a skewer). It was delicious. As a non-meat eater I had the fish which was very good though I wasn't too keen on the meat juices dripping right in front of me. However I accept it is mainly for meat eaters.... More

Visited after reading trip advisor. Rang to book transport and not available so arranged a taxi from funchal at ten euros. Which was fine. Garlic bread great as a starter and ordered skewered chicken and steak on stone with chips, maize and veg. Chicken was all bone but steak lovely. Chips only enough for one and we eat very little,...

Prices are decent, set is OK, portions generous and everything tastes good. Desserts excepted, as often in Portugal. But the music, OMFG !!!!! A flute playing all the standarts of the world for 2 hours, almost lost the will to live

Searched this one out on trip advisor. Got the bus from Funchal the restaurant was just opening. Got a table at the window, overlooking the bay, lovely view. We both ordered the beef skewers on laurel, with veg and garlic and oregano fries. Everything tasted lovely and the service was really good, the only issue we had was the food... More

Found this via tripadvisor it's set above the Main Street accessed via a public stairwell. Once you've found the place you won't be disappointed. We had skewered fillet and thin strips of sirloin. To say they were the best meat dishes we've eaten in many years is an understatement. The meals were fabulous. Go with an empty tummy and enjoy.

Amazing restaurant with great views and very friendly service. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a mixture of beef on skewers, fillet on the stone which meant I could cook it just to my liking and grilled lamb. All lovely meat. We had house vegetables to go with it. It was Wednesday so dancers came in and sang and... More

BBQ meat - garlic - great wine - superb service - value! "Simple" food done to a high end quality. The garlic bread was just the best anywhere in the world ever - or tell me where it's better??!!?? The bean salad - a triumph. I love Portuguese food (so under rated) and this was possibly the best I've had.... More
