First visit to this beautiful Resturant, but won’t be the last. We were picked up from our hotel at the appointed time by the complimentary transfer. I had the huge shrimp for starters and my wife had the cheese with honey and nuts. Both of...which were amazing. The staff especially the owner were very friendly and engaging. For mains, I nearly had their famous octopus, but went for the T bone steak and my wife had their BBQ’ed half chicken. Both of which were superb. So much so, I’d started my steak with the butter knife and I couldn’t tell. We had a salad and fries as an accompaniment both of which were also very tasty. For dessert I had a brownie pie and my wife had the crème caramel neither of which disappointed. We had a large jug of sangria and a couple of draft beers and I think the bill was around €95. Which wasn’t bad at all. The place had a lovely un-rushed atmosphere and truly made our anniversary a special one. Thank you for an amazing evening, we will be returning soonMore

We visited with a Portuguese dear friend for our final dinner, celebrating a lovely holiday and our guest's birthday in recent days. Collected and returned in complimentary minibus. On arrival greeted and shown to a lovely terrace table and pre-dinner drinks order taken whilst perusing...the menu. Lovely selection of PXO island/Portuguese on the menu. We ordered Bolo do Caco with amejios bulhao pato starters. Short wait and soon served. Absolutely fantastic first course. Wine list provided and Esporao Reservas Tinto selected. Main courses followed. Tuna steak, Grilled Gambas and the legendary Polvo in secret sauce with side extras of mixed vegetables and sauteed carrots. Terrific cooking, beautifully presented and so tasty. That with a quality red wine wow!!! A single 'novelty' Fried ice cream shared dessert for the girls. (PXO take on Baked Alaska) A tea and Coffees to finish. One word to describe - Awesome! Very reasonable final bill settled followed by journey to the south side of the island back to hotel. Conclusion:- Fabulous meal and highly recommended with great family service throughout. Obrigado Torres Ate Logo for sure.More

What an absolutely fantastic family restaurant. Family run, the attention to service is second to none and the food is spectacular. We have been lucky enough to enjoy fine dining all over the world and the experience here is up there with the best. The...presentation is executed well and the quality is divine - I highly recommend the octopus - flavourful, tender - melt in the mouth. If you are here as a tourist or even a resident, you MUST experience this restaurant. High praise is deserved - you made our trip! Thank you so much!More

WOW! This place is a hidden gem that deserves so much recognition. Family run through generations- the food and service reflects this. So much care goes into the customer care and the quality of the food. We had a few starters- the Red pepper tapas,...tomato mozzarella and basil & garlic bread- all so fresh and amazing For mains we had the famous Octopus with rice and carrots and the Salmon salad Both were absolutely stunning with such a variety of beautiful flavours and real care was taken into the presentation. NOW DESERTS- neither of us are desert people but wow they were absolutely amazing- fried ice cream and an assortment of cakes. The staff were so lovely and picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel. This visit made our holiday and I would strongly urge anyone coming to Porto Santo to visit this place- you will not regret it. Completely made our holiday. Thank you!!More

Best restaurant in Porto Santo Island. They truly take care of the details, the perfect balance between a world-class restaurant experience and the traditional Portuguese cozy hospitality and simplicity. We knew we had arrived at a special place when we looked at the menu, the...tableware and the service. The prices are fair (not expensive), The service was superb, and the flavors were amazing. The people running the place definitely have an excellent taste and clearly understand that food is more than just throwing lettuce in a dish. One thing that actually delighted us was the thoughtfulness of the family behind this place: After enjoying so much our food, we decided we should order dessert too (not something we usually do) so we were undecided between many options, but when we asked the lady serving us "which was her favourite?" she immediately told us she could cut us pieces of her favorites and put it all into one dish, AMAZING. Great to see this kind of very rare hospitality still exists somewhere!! Props to the family running this place and definitely GO HERE!More

We always go here at least once in Porto Santo. Friendly family run restaurant, great outside seating. Food is good, I had tuna salad, but normally eat the chicken.

Il ristorante è situato non lontano dall’aeroporto. Due parole. Cibo eccellente. Crostino con prosciutto,pomodoro, peperoni formaggio e basilico magnifico. Carne buonissima cotta meravigliosamente dal proprietario alla griglia. Pollo o maiale andate comunque a colpo sicuro. Patate fritte home made super. E domani secondo round per...provare il pesce. Non potete non andare a porto santo e non mangiare qui. The restaurant it’s located not far from P.Santo’s airport. Nothing else to add, just excellent. Bruschetta with ham,basil,cheese and red pepper was amazing, I highly recommend it as a starter. The meat was marvellously cooked by the owner at the grill. Doesn’t matter if you choose pork or chicken, they are just amazing. Home made fries that you should absolutely try. Tomorrow I’ll definitely go for the second round, this time will be fish. Good price. If you are in Porto Santo you can’t absolutely miss this restaurant.More

Don’t get me wrong it’s good but no card machine (it’s 2019?!) chicken is basically bbq chicken which is just under €10 and comes with nothing so in short by the time your order chips, which are amazing, salad etc it’s a very expensive bit...of chicken! The gin and tonic is charged separately which meant that my gin was just under €10 and the puddings, of which we had 4, came to €25?! I have eaten all over the world and had the bill for 6 not had been €155 I would not have been so shocked but you are on a small island with no cash point in site, miles from most places and frankly it’s vastly overpriced for very average food... may be worth telling bookings that you only take cash?!! Won’t be rushing back....More
