Nice little authentic restaurant.

Ate here 3 times due to the amazing reviews. Praise is well deserved. Staff were very nice and helpful. Food was very good and plentiful. Poncha was excellent, I tried a lot all over the island and this was the best. Would love to come here again. Never had a problem getting a table for 2 and even... read more

We went 3 nights in row, ate different things off the menu each night. It's not Michelin starred food, but it doesn't pretend to be. It's tasty, generous portions, excellent value for money. Service was friendly, nice atmosphere, parking easy. Healthy mix of locals and tourists like us. P.S. Try the Poncha. It's fantastic, not at all like the mediocre... More

Very enjoyable and tradicional food, with a good value for money. The ambience is very soothing and has a distinct style. I loved the selection of good portuguese wines and an enjoyable relaxed service. To my foreign friends enjoying a vacation here in "madeira island" I recommendo this place to you

We were looking for a nice typical madeira restaurant and we found it in Taberna Sao Vicente - this small, cosy place is definitely worth of visiting while staying in Madeira! The food was delicious, all the ingredients were fresh and tasty, staff was very friendly. The best octopus salad I have ever had I tasted in this restaurant!

We came here more or less by accident on the search for something to eat, and this was good: I had a very delicious chicken and a very nice evening. During our round-trip on Madeira we ate in different restaurants, and this was one of the best. So what is different from the other places? - first, the food is... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by our host in Casa de Piedade, and we visited the place twice. First we had fish, which was excellent. Second time we chose to share the seafood rice, which is one of the best meals we had in our lives, definitely the best seafood! If we visit Madeira again, will definitely make the... More

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.

After spending our afternoon looking at amazing scenery on he Northern cost of Madeira, we arrived by 7pm as the first customers for this Thursday evening. 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
