We spent a week in Madeira on a week long holiday and had our Evening Meal at this restaurant on four occasions. They have a fixed price tourist menu providing three courses a large beer
or carafe of wine plus coffee and Madeiran Wine for just under 15 Euros. There is also an extensive menu to choose from. The staff were so friendly and a provided excellent service and
nothing was too much trouble. The local fish is called Espada (black scabbard fish) which was
delicious. Several guests staying at the same hotel as highly recommended this restaurant to
us. The ambience inside the restaurant is superb and we found that the restaurant was full on
most evenings so if you arrive after 7.30pm we recommend that you reserve a table. A must restaurant to visit during your stay in Madeira.

We had dinner here on the day of arrival and went back again another night! The weather was good so we were able to eat outside. The food is very good but be prepared to wait a while for it. Prices are very reasonable and the staff are very pleasant and attentive.

We ordered the tourist menu for a fixed price that was pretty reasonable.
My wife had asparagus soup, I had tomato. Both were very good.
My wife had scabbard fish with banana and I had white fish with garlic sauce. The scabbard was quite good; the white fish was bland and tasteless.

The waiter was pretty friendly and spoke pretty good English which was helpful.

Overall, it was a good meal and a good value for the price.

We enjoyed Sebastiao's better but this is a good second choice.

We stayed just over the road from this restaurant and dined 4 nights during our 6 night stay- the food, service, staff, atmosphere are all superb-you are made to feel so welcome -part of one big family ! The food is unbelivable for the price - wonderful fresh fish/ marvellous meets (the mixed meat skewer is the best I have had anywhere). I cannot recommend this place highly enough - will certainly be spending the majority of my evenings dining here upon our next visit -PLEASE TRY IT !!!
