Lovely restaurant with delicious food and particularly friendly and supportive staff. We felt welcome from the first encounter in the street and returned with pleasure. You should try traditional Madeiran fish (espada) with fried banana. Very reasonable prices. Special regards to Patrick

Ca te Espero is a typical restaurant with a long tradition. It has been known for its quality and for its cosy and homy atmosphere, since 1976.Our food quality is the result of the use of fresh ingredients in the preparation and cooking of our traditional recipes. We point out Bife de Atum com Milho Frito (Tuna fish Steak with fried Maize), Filete de Espada com Banana (Fried Scabbard fish with Banana), Pepper Steak and Pork Fillet Ca te Espero Style.We will be very pleased to welcome you!
