Super friendly staff, huge portions of great food, low prices and the best poncha in Madeira. What else can you really ask for?

Visited Paul do Mar and found this nice place close to the harbor. A local bar with Portuguese food. Very nicely located away from the wind and with a nice view over the ocean. A very nice and helpful owner. The Prego Especial is a large bread filled with a steak, an egg, ham and some sallad. Bier is included in the price €5! More than you can eat. A highly recommended place to visit!

We were staying near this bar and stopped many times during our visit in December for evening snacks and drinks. The owners are lovely, the food brilliant and the costs are excellent. The local ‘Poncha’ is made by hand and the gentleman has the muscles to prove it!

What a superb little restaurant! Doesn't look like much but the food is excellent!! Good selection and the owners are very pleasant. Had prawns, garlic bread, chips and a Prego roll. Portions were huge and more than enough for the 4 of us. Will definitely go again! Great spot down near the harbour area. Well worth a visit!!

What would you wish beyond a sunny terrace with seaview, the best home made french fries, fresh drinks and “lapas” in a butter sauce, great seafood & traditional meat dishes.
Constant attention to quality in what comes to the table makes it very close to perfect ...
