The best place we found in the whole Madeira. Excellent food, lovely staff.

I wish I had a few more meals there.

This is the best place we could find on the entire island. Food is cooked with love and knowledge and tastes amazing. We would say it is a 5+ star experience - we have not tried anything better even in four/five star rated restaurants in other European countries for much higher prices. Everything is well fried (not too much, not too little), nicely decorated and often served with great sauces. The menu is extensive enough and everything, you name it - seafood dishes, steaks, side salads/rice/fries or desserts, tastes like in heaven. There is also a great selection of drinks to accompany the food. The owners are very attentive and very welcoming, but at the same time leave you in your private space. We ate out there 7 or 8 times and it has always been a great experience. The prices are like in other places on the island (if not lower), but service and deliciousness of the food is far beyond what you can get in other restaurants around. The setting is very intimate and you can enjoy both cozy inside rooms or outside terrace with a mountain/ocean view. We miss this place already and we definitely will have to return!

We went to the resturant based on ratings of Trip advisor. Parents had fish and we had the meat dish. Overall not as tasty as one expected from the reviews, price same as most restaurants in Madeira I would say, service good, the chips were excellent, toilets very clean.

We visited this restaurant on the 24th June 2015 and loved it so much we went back the next night despite looking for somewhere new to try! The lady owner (who I regretfully forgot to ask her name - the food distracted me too much!) has a perfect balance between being attentative and interested whilst still leaving you alone sufficiently to enjoy a quiet romantic meal. The prices are excellent value considering the quality of the food and the portions are certainly ample - in fact the rich prawn tagliatelli portion was a little too much for both me and my wife but superbly delicious.
If you are looking for well cooked food in a quiet, intimate setting this restaurant is a must. Whilst the service at the nearby seafront restaurants was also good it was not a patch on this place and the food at Taberna S. Vicente is leaps and bounds above the rest.
Best place we ate all week in madeira and rates in my Top 10 restaurant experiences.
