No body does espatada like Santo António. A must visit for anyone. Family, solo or couples, they will rearrange the furniture to accommodate your party. Great quality meat, fast service and super friendly staff. All for a very reasonable price!

If you like bbq in Portuguese style, this is probably the best place in the Madeira island. The staff is quick, polite and effective. In Santo Antonio you can find the famous espetadas of cow and chicken, very tasty due the quality of the meat...More
