We went for lunch and asked for a espetada. Very good meat, very tasty. Bolo do caco and milho frito were also very good. Service was good as well. Nice meal for a nice price.

Friendly service in this cafe bar / restaurant on the main road of Porto Santo. Wine was pricy for this type of establishment, and the food was plentiful, but the chicken didn't taste great, and as another reviewer suggested, tasted somehow 'dry'. I am not sure how they cook it, but it was one of the worst roast chickens we have had!

We saw this place on passing on a few nights and it wasn't doing any business and because we like a quiet place thought we would give it a try. Seemed clean apart from the ants crawling over your feet! Ordered a whole BBQ chicken, salad and fries and two local beers. Chicken was plentiful but dry, chips, oil needed changing and salad was lots of lettuce, little tomato and loads of onion. The owner came across and told us he was going on a cruise of the eastern seaboard USA, lovely until we received the bill and noticed we had been charged the astronomical price of €2.50 for each beer. Which is more than the hotel rate of €1.80 and also we had been charged as little as €1 elsewhere. Now we know why he was going on an expensive cruise. Give it a miss unless you want to finance his next cruise!

Good place to bring some chicken churrasquo and some rice and fries. Good service and pleasant people. Take away service bit you can eat in place. Good quality/price.

My husband and I first visited here for a refreshing pit stop after walking into town from our resort. The staff were really friendly. On our last full day (Sunday) this was one of the only places left open. We arrived late (just after 9pm) but they were more than welcome to accommodate us considering they were due to close in 20mins and I'm so glad they did because it was amazing! The BBQ chicken is like nothing I've ever tasted before, it is so well cooked and tasty all the way through. The very kind gentlement who served us (pictured in other photos) was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend for anyone staying in Porto Santo!
