Went to Porto Santo island on a day trip from Funchal and found ourselves at this restaurant just in time for a late lunch. After a bottle of wine, a chicken salad and a plateful of the biggest prawns in a superb tomato-based sauce that I have seen anywhere followed by a couple of cups of coffee, we staggered away from O Rochedo to do a bit of sight-seeing before catching the ferry back to Funchal. If you find yourself on Porto Santo island and need a good lunch in simple surroundings, look no further than O Rochedo.

We had one of our best meals of our trip here. I had the limpids & my husband had the octopus, both were tasty, the portions generous, & very reasonably priced. We plan on going again tomorrow before leaving the island to enjoy more seafood.

Ate lunch here twice during our weeks stay. Salads very fresh and tasty. The second time I had cubes of beef in a mushroom sauce with chips, which was extremely tasty and lots of it!!! My wife's carbonara was just the same. Highly recommend

Friday Lunchtime; a cool beer and a bowl of the local speciality - Trigo (Wheat Soup). Probably the best soup on the island. Plenty of other choices too and the staff are so friendly.

After a magnificent stroll soaking up the sun in April, I wanted to relax and pen my postcard memories. I began to look for somewhere to enjoy a light-meal. I stopped at the popular O Rochedo Bar-Restaurant by locals working close to the city. I ordered a vegetable soup with bread and a glass of local red wine. Christopher Columbus Museum was just a stone-through away and to be my next port of call. The bar has a nice light atmosphere with TV and a stage for a weekend appearances. Best of all they make wonderful soup and a meal of the day.
