We thought we'd just stop for gelato, but we were so glad we ordered more! The locally flavored Mel de Cana pizza was out if this world! A white pizza with pine nuts, mushrooms, goat cheese and the perfect drizzle of mel de cana. Just amazing. On great dough and served by friendly staff. That and the great gelato made our day!

Having read your reviews regarding the ice creams, we tried them and they lived up to our expectations.
We went back for a meal one evening, had excellent fish, so much so that we went back again on our last night in Calheta for a light meal. We ended up having one of the best pizzas ever!
Excellent food and service.

Looking like nothing more exciting than an ice cream place this restaurant is pretty amazing. Lasagne as you’d enjoy it in Italy and ice cream made this a pleasant change on a landscape dominated by fish with banana.

Worth visiting more than once

This restaurant is so much more than it looks from the outside, which is like a slightly old fashioned ice cream parlour. That would not normally tempt me in but luckily I had read some of the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did because they serve some of the best food I have eaten on Madiera. The fish and prawns are fresh, local and prepared beautifully. The lamb was my favourite and was cooked to perfection. The ice cream is totally fabulous and the staff are friendly helpful and attentive. We do not normally go to the same restaurant more twice on a holiday but we found ourselves going back there time and again. Try it, you will not be disppointed!

We ate here almost every day. Their Mel de cana pizza is the best I've experienced. Also tuna salad has a really good dressing. Lasagna is also really good. Ice cream is better than anywhere else in Calheta. Staff enjoys working here, they are smiling and laughing. Do yourself a favor and eat here.
