Wonderful place, excellent dining, marvelous service. If you come to Porto Santo and you don’t come here, you don’t deserve to go back home.

The warmest hospitality I have experienced in a very long time, I had the tuna fish fresh from the sea and cooked to perfection by the chef. The service to every detail was outstanding. I thoroughly recommend a place to dine and the view overlooking...the sea was spectacular.More

What a lovely spot this restaurant holds above the town of Vila Baleira. We sat outside on a really pretty veranda enjoying the evening view. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We ate tasty fish dishes of sea bass in banana leaf...and tuna steak. The desserts were wonderful too. Totally recommend seeking this place out if you’re are passing.More

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
