We came here after the wonderful trip adviser reviews and so glad we did. The owner Lena is such a lovely person and the food is delicious - we had the clams and the tuna. Would recommend both!

One of the best dining experiences on the island, staff were super nice and accommodating, let us sit outside and watch the view, dishes were tasty and fresh and well cooked. The fish of the day was probably the best fish I had in Madeira...and Porto Santo. Great seafood well cooked, and our waiter was super nice and friendly, a great front of house. The only short coming was the desert, the meringue was so soft it was almost glue like, would recommend removing that option in future from the menu.More

Arrogantly overrated . Spiders on the walls and ceiling . Red wine served HOT . Salad from the supermarket plastic wrapping dropped on the plate and upgraded with a few pineapple cubes was served as Exotic Salad ????? . Same supermarket Bread was spread with...a fat layer of butter and some green sprinkles . To make it “ chique” . While the room temperature was unbearable.Clients waving menu cards to get some air . NO AIRCO! And to finish a hot banana swimming in sugar syrup and same supermarket vanilla ice with frozen crystals . ( arrogantly called banana flambé- without any flames !) Bad . Bad . Bad .More
