My wife and I found Porto Santo a little hit and miss when it came to eating out. Gelburger though was the best lunch we had on our stay. Really friendly staff and the Bolo do Caco Pergo Sandwich was delicious. Definitely worth a try...More

This is a cheap and cheerful cafe where you have great views of the square and can enjoy a cool drink or a nice snack. Food and service good, especially good view if there is something happening in the square - like a fiesta.

This is our must stop place when we visit the capital. Very friendly staff, excellent cakes, a wide range of good food and fantastic iced coffee's. Gel berger is almost a daily visit for us and always will be. Service always comes with a smile.
