After a long walk by the levada near Ponta do Pardo, we drove to this beautiful tea shop near the sea. Great homemade teas and cakes, but they also serve drinks and meals! Very welcoming service as well!

Sunset from this Casa da Chá is a must-do! Crisp cold local Coral beer, homemade Poncha and delightful warming soup made this place a special treat for us, and the most amazing sunset we’ve seen in a long time. The excellent service was a bonus, and we were treated with tremendous care and kindness.

Very good service, pleasant staff. It took 5 minutes to bring meat and fish, the food itself was not very good. I would not advice to eat there, but the view is really nice

We were on our way to the west coast, leisurely driving on the highway. Something "compelled" me to follow a sign to a lighthouse in the village of Ponta Do Pargo and I'm so glad we did. This tiny but beautiful restaurant sits smack on the westernmost point (or a km away from the actual lighthouse) overlooking the cliffs of western Madeira. Not to come here is missing out. When we got here, we were almost alone, but later more people found their way. The owners are super friendly and grateful for some business. We first only stopped for some "support the local business coffee" before we went for a walk down to the lighthouse and back. We decided to stay for lunch to enjoy the sunshine and the fresh air, not to mention those views...

The food is simple but delicious. We weren't super hungry so opted mostly for sandwiches and salads. Sadly the place is for sale and has been for a while. So who knows what the future holds...

A wonderful little restaurant on one of the best views (miradouro) of Madeira. Their sandwiches are the best as is their service. I didn't like the soup though. But other than that very recommendable
