We came across this restaurant since we were staying in Carlton Pestana hotel. This is 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The restaurant is a great choice for sea food lovers with variety to choose from. Some local recipes available here, friendly staff and buzzing environment. Booking is highly recommended. Mid range cuisine with Avery of 30 to 50 € per person including drinks. Definitely recommend

The best restaurant we went to, during our vacation.

The waiter was super friendly and obliging. Of course he knew the menu by memory. To adjust a menu (for my vegetarian wife) wasn't a problem neither.

The food itself was superb!

Among others, I ordered the classic "espada with banana". The fish wasn't only fresh, but also prepared on point. Nicely juicy an yummy. My wife had "artichoke base au gratin" and was very happy with her choice, as well.

The ambience was absolutely cosy and relaxing, thanks to the green interior consisting of flowers and plants.

One last thing, though. My wife didn't like her desert, caramel pudding. It was the first time she had one and simply came to the conclusion that caramel pudding isn't her favorite thing.
As the waitress (new shift / new staff) saw, that she just had two or three spoons and then stopped eating, approached us and asked if everything is ok.
My wife told her what's going on. The waitress promptly replied that she is very sorry and won't charge for it... I was pleasantly surprised.

All in all we had...

1x garlic bread
1x shrimp cocktail
1x tomato soup
1x espada with banana
1x artichoke base au gratin
1x tiramisu
1x caramel pudding
1/2x bottle of green wine
1x Bottle of water
1x coffee
1x espresso

...for approximately 60€

An unexpected low price, considering the great service (from both, waitress and waiter), the quality of the food and ambience.

First thing we're gonna do, next time we come to Madeira, is to eat there again!

Went based on all the good reviews and wasn't disappointed!

Food was excellent and the service was attentive too. Roof top terrace gave a good view despite the Savoy being built nearby.

This is certainly a restaurant to try if you're in the area!

Excellent food...fantastic size portions. Lovely ambience on the roof top terrace. Only disappointment was that every other table received a complimentary Madeira wine at the end of the meal and we didn't....left us feeling a little unloved!
