It's our third review of this place after three different stays in Funchal (we have it 5* twice before). This place is one of the first we want to visit when returning to Madeira (we go at least once a year) and usually doesn't let...More

Good quality meat in a stick, called "espetada". The restaurant itself is a bit noisy and the employees don't speak very well... but they make an effort... and everything goes well. We went as a group of friends and enjoyed it!

Lovely atmosphere where the locals happily tolerate tourists (even if English is a bit of a challenge to the staff). Excellent espetada - succulent beef cooked either on a bay branch or a metal skewer - fried maize, salad, generous portion of local garlic bread...More

Ate here at lunch time - full of locals - always a good sign. Place was recommended to us by a member of our reception staff who lives in this village. Easy to find if you start at the church! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

Another trip to Madeira, and two (!) dinner sessions at As Vides. This is definitely the best place for espetadas. Side dishes of corn, salad and chips extremely yummy as well. Went on a Monday, and the place was quieter, and on a Sunday and...More

Steaks were so amazing, we had to return the following day, hours before our flight back. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Amazing value, similar quality steak would probably cost 5 times as much in London...Definitely worth the drive up to the mountains!
