“Afternoon snack turned into a full meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

We planned to go to another place nearby after a nice long walk along one of the levadas. The other place was closed so we looked on trip advisor and found this place instead. And we were very happily surprised. Nice bright clean and modern building overlooking the sea. Great views and with ample sun shades to keep us from burning.

We only planned to have a little bite to eat but after a long walk we decided to make it our main meal for the day. We ordered the grilled Octopus (Polvo) for 2 people. We also ordered side orders of vegetables and salad to go with it. The Octopus was perfectly cooked, simple, good quality, fresh food. Served with potatoes and I cant remember what else.

It wasnt cheap at 32 euros for the 2 of us. plus extra for the salad, vegetables and drinks it came to 50 euros.. But it was good quality, tasty, nicely cooked and the service was great. plus they had nice high speed wifi that we could use for free..

The next time we're in Madeira we'll take a trip to this place.

Very good :)

“Fabulous meal in nice location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

We had the baked cod with prawns and mussels for 2, which took a fair time to arrive but was well worth the wait. Beautiful large pieces of cod surrounded by potatoes, all smothered by a combination of onions, mussels and olives and topped with prawns and langoustines. No wonder the waiter said it was their best dish.

“Best picanha this side of the Atlantic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013 via mobile

As a Brazilian living away from home for over 10 years, I'm always in search of a good picanha. I must say, the Espetada de picanha (picanha skewers) was perfectly rare, and amazingly succulent, bloody and full of flavour. Will definitely come again!

“Good food, perfect sunsets!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

We ate here twice (plus once in the Restaurant below - Borda d'Agua - which was good, too) while staying in nearby Ponta do Sol. The first night we resisted the beautiful fish and seafood selection offered by our waiter and went for the Espetadas. My husband tried the original and I went for the more tender Brazilian beef. Both were tasty and very reasonably priced. The second night we went for the Seafood Risotto which was truly out of this world! It took a little while to prepare but the wait was worth it - huge prawns, mussles, octopus and all sorts of fish in a gorgeous broth-soaked rice, really to die for!
Service was friendly and helpful. The other big draw at A Muralha is the large terrace with amazing sunset views (we must have taken at least 20 pictures on the two nights we were there!)

“Best fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

Great restaurant. Great, fresh fish. A lot of space and toys for children. Scenic view and perfect sunsets. Next to the parking. Best fish and seafood we've tried.
