We have eaten here at least twice on every visit to Madeira for the last seven years and munched our way through the menu with great relish. One one occasion my husband inadvertently handed over an extra 50 euro note (they were new notes, stuck together and fresh out of the ATM). As we were almost out of the door,... More

Real local food, great kebab and good fish. Waiting staff friendly and polite. Worth a visit for lunch or an inexpensive supper. Nothing fancy, but fresh and tasty food.

Title says it all. We were looking for a simple light dinner and this place hit the mark. The salads were really good value and very tasty. Homemade desserts are great. Lovely people with great service.

After a rather tiring walk, we dropped in for lunch, rather hot and not in the best mood. We were a bit cautious about its appearance and we wondered whether we made the right choice. We were quite wrong. The welcome was immediate and friendly and the food was absolutely fine. It’s fairly basic and unpretentious, but has a great... More

This is a family run business and the staff are extremely friendly. If apple pie is available you must try it

As others have said, a fairly basic set up but a very well run family business delivering good value and tasty meals in a pleasant way. Not so much for a special occasion but provides good way of stretching the holiday budget. Our family have been using it for years and never been disappointed.

Not the most luxurious or up market establishments to dine at, but boy the simple, well produced menu ticked every box for Taste, Value, Service and location. With a fairly 'tight' menu - to help decision making easier, the food, service and atmosphere here is great, no messing honest well cooked and presented tasty food. Prompt service with a friendly...

We have visited this restaurant several times for a snack after walking along the Piornais levada and have never been disappointed. It is clean and friendly and the owners go out of their way to be helpful. Nice little added extras like a few crisps whilst they cooked our meal were not added to the bill. As others have said...

We had a fabulous dinner here - perfectly cooked espada with crunchy vegetables (yes, crunchy - which I have not managed to get at any other restaurant in Madeira!), delicious steak and a lovely bachalau dish, followed by the most sublime passion fruit dessert and to-die-for chocolate mousse, and finished off with a perfect bica. The staff were attentive, friendly... More
