Tucked away in the original laurel forest high above Seixal with a steep zig-zag path to a “miradouro” looking over the trees to the ocean (I imagine – I’ve never made it to the top!). Even for a strong walker, it is a pre-lunch endeavour....More

This is a very special place, that can look misty and dark when the sun isn't shining, but the trout from the river next to it is absolutly delicious, the portions are very generous, and it's a great place for families.

Located in laurel forest high above Seixal, this basic restaurant deserves more customers. The Espetada (Portuguese beef kebabs) are probably the best in the island as they are cooked on laurel stalks that impart their flavour into the meat. We've eaten here twice, both times...More

Not easy to find and over dirt roads at times, but worth it. The beef skewers are fantastic, paired with a beer or glass of wine, salad, bread, yum. Use the bread under the juice dripping skewers as the local do. Look for bus loads...More

This is one of Madeira's best-kept secrets, and not one for the average tourist. But if you like to venture off the beaten track, there is a culinary feast awaiting you. Just head for SEIXAL on the North coast, and take the turning to Chao...More

The snack bar and restaurant are set in a valley above Seixal in a wooded area. The area is understandably popular with locals, there is a play area and parking just outside but the area is not paved and the last section of the road...More
