Overall the food and service was excellent and was very good value for money. We had Grilled Squid and the Black Pig. Both dishes were plentiful and tasty. Service was efficient and staff were very friendly. The main reasons why we did not give it a 5 star was that the tables were too close together and the overall lighting... More

Visited on Valentine's Day with my wife. We booked the previous day and there was no issue with our chosen time. It's quite an intimate place so do book at busier times of the year. We were seated and greeted quickly. It has a lovely feel and atmosphere from the start. The staff were very professional and attentive at all... More

I am coming to Madeira regularly since many years and the quality of this Restaurant has always been excellent. It is really necessary to make a reservation, because it is allways full. Just very good Portugiese kitchen, excellent quality and nicely presented. A lot of Residents are daily customers, and that is the best recommandation !

This is justifiably a very busy and popular restaurant because the food is excellent and the service friendly and efficient. We especially enjoyed the fish and the great value for money.

Recommended by a friend and the food and service were good. Not very big inside so a bit squashed in. Fish sqewer was great and a choice of salad or veg good.

We ate here after being recommended by friends. The restaurant is easy to find on the corner of the square gardens. We had a table on the Mezzanine level which is good for people watching. Encouraged by the sight of locals eating at the adjacent table, we ordered the local speciality of the beef on skewers. I am not normally... More

The food and attentive service was beyond our expectations. We had the steaks which were very tasty indeed. We didn't book but got there early, just before 7 and we managed to get in. The portions are large and we couldn't manage a dessert which was a shame as they looked lovely, but big! Definitely our favourite restaurant so far.... More
