My wife and I visited this establishment yesterday. Great service and nicely cooked food at an inexpensive price. My wife had the good old English favourite of 'Fish and Chips' whilst I had the pork chops. Both dishes were nicely cooked and well presented. The two meals cost just 16€ which was a pleasure. Certainly recommend this restaurant.

We discovered this restaurant tucked between the houses in a residential area of Canico. Quite a steep climb to get there but well worth the effort.

Only looks like a small bar at first, you can sit outside but bigger inside and the food is fantastic.. Very friendly service. We had to walk up a steep hill to get there, but it was worth it, went twice.

After what seemed like climbing Everest we got to Fados. A couple of cold beers soon helped and the blue sea view was brilliant. We ordered a garlic bolo da caco to start which came with a plate of olives, local cheese and tomato. Very nice and unexpected. Next a large pan of lapas(limpets), hot buttery and more garlic. Followed... More

Our favourite restaurant in Canico. Tucked a little out of the way about a 5 minute work but really worth it! Steak on a stone was delicious! Staff were very friendly and prices were similar to most places around. Definitely worth a visit!

We usually passed by to during the lunch time and we choose the day offer wich is home made local style dish; always delicious! The last friday or saturday in every month is a Fado live show; we find pity that it is so rare... Sometimes they have a better show , sometime less. The stuff is very helpfull

The best home-made dishes we had in Madeira so far (grillem octopus & squid). The owner is a lovely lady who makes you feel really welcome. We are looking to more delicious food and fado music on Saturday.
