This was a great meal. I drove by the restaurant several times, it's at a bit of a weird spot, but the food was excellent. Whoever misses sauce in Portuguese cuisine: they servered a light herbal sauce with the tuna, that was exquisite.

We chose to share the seafood bean stew for two. The mix of gambas, cockles, crab and musells along with casoulet sausage mixed with all sorts of beans was really delicious. A small bottle... More

Arrived at 2.30 but were warmly welcomed at this family run restaurant. We experienced our first taste of limpets followed by a traditional beef stew. It was reasonable, friendly and tasty food.

I visited again my favourite restaurant North of Madeira Island. It was again worth the whole trip by car to just enjoy a great dinner there. My wife and I received a warm welcome from the lady-owner Zita. We did not had the food yet, but we enjoyed the cosiness and the simple artistic surroundings that was combined with a... More

Me and my boyfriend discovered this hidden jewel while returning from the natural lava pools in porto moniz. This is hands down the best restaurant on the island. The food is absolutely amazing!! We had the shrimps in taberna sauce, garlic bread, picado, tavern sandwich and each plate was incredibly tasy . The staff is extremely friendly and polite and... More

We have recently returned from two weeks in Maderia. Being vegetarian mealtime proved difficult in a lot of places sometimes just chips and salad. Taberna de S.Vicente was really different the mushroom risotto was well cooked, the recommended wine was excellent and the mousse desserts were to die for. Staff were very friendly. The only downside was location not in... More

We were visiting the area on a cruise excursion visiting the nearby caves. We had a short break prior to heading back to the ship where we could take a wander on our own.
