We were introduced to this restaurant by a local last year. Had to go again, while visiting Funchal this year. It is renowned for the espetadas - well known Madeiran dish.The meat is simply amazing. Also loved the chips and the corn cubes. Fully recommend this restaurant. It's a hidden local gem that deserves the limelight on the international stage...It's not easy to find for the non-local but well worth the effort of the search.

It's not a fancy restaurant, and maybe because it is so popular, whenever there are large groups it becomes a little noisy, but everything else is worth, very much worth, the drive uphill. Besides the quality meat, which is great (especially the one on the bone) and the embers on which it is cooked that give it it's flavour, the friendly staff make up for the rest of the experience, especially if you 'return''. They will know you and will cater for your needs swiftly and nicely. We went there twice, and wished we stayed for longer to go once more!

It is truly simple local place with simple menu. If you like good beef on laur tree skewers prepared on the charcoal - this is your place. Vegetarians - please stay away.

Good food - very reasonably priced - very near to hotel Quinta da Estreito. The restaurant is well established and the main dish is various types of bar b q meat on skewers.
