Went here twice on our recent trip and cant speak highly enough. Great food, seafood was stunning, steaks excellent ( my 5 year old daughter also agreed) and excellent service. Highly recommend.

One the best casual seafood meals I have had, accompanied by good wine. Fresh, excellent preparation and reasonable pricing. Service was friendly. Look forward to going back.

A fairly standard restaurant in the old town with tables very close together The fish was fantastic though - we had the grilled platter for two and enjoyed every mouthful. Definitely worth a visit - good value too.

So much choice in the Old Town but stopped off here due to friendly staff, not too pushy. We had the steak with blue cheese and the grilled prawns. Both meals were lovely as was the wine. Fries in Madeira can be a bit hit...More

We went for the two person fish platter with chips and a salad. Nice dinner, nothing special. My husband then had the apple pie which would have been nicer hot but was also fine. Not sure about the amazing reviews here. It’s in a very...More
