“Support the good reviews already given”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

In short I give support to the good reviews already given. It is not a gourmet restaurant, but you get great tasting and plentyful food from the grill. Located in a small town outside Funchal you need a car to go there, alternatively use their free pick-up and return service. We were picked up from Palheiro village by two cars (6 people) and the driver did not even want to accept a tip upon returning us. Great service!

“I love food and people at Central”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

I went back to Madeira last July and stayed again in Caniço. And, of course, I went to Central for dinner. The restaurant is even better than last year. What I like the most is the Rozido "brasilian grilled meat feast", in which they bring you the spit and carve the grilled meat at the table. And come back again and again with differerent kind of meat, until you are satisfied. The meat quality is excellent and the preparation and cooking are perfect. To conclude the meal you will get grilled pineapple, sliced from the spit at you table: It is so good you cannot stop eating it!!!!! All this food for a very small price. As a bonus, the staff is very friendly, and when you go back they welcome you as if you were going back home. Highly recommended.

“Meat feast!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Wow what a meal! I suggest eating here after a full day levada walk or other exercise filled day. The small 'mixed grill' just kept meat coming & coming & coming! We eat here twice and were given a very warm welcome.
