Also the hanging meat( espetadas) a bit of a gimmick? but fantastic to try had the beef cooked well.. Everything served as we asked staff listening. Service was quite slow at times but it was a packed restaurant... More

Ate here with my partner. We arrived at 6pm and by 6.20pm the restaurant was rammed, every table full, lovely atmosphere buzzing with chatter and the smell of the amazing food cooking. I ordered garlic mushrooms to start, they were fantastic and my boyfriends scampi looked delicious too. We both went for beef hanging kebabs and these were superb, perfectly... More

We went to the Madeira on recommendation and boy did it deliver. . The starters were delicious and were only surpassed by the main course which turned out to be one of the best steaks ive had. I was too stuffed for dessert but looking at my colleagues faces I think they were just as delicious. A warm welcome and... More

We've been here a few times and come back for the amazing Portuguese kebabs. Skewered and hung with garlic butter, just a taste sensation. For starters we had the white wine and garlic mussels and the ribs, lovely! Will be back!

Thank Lauren C
