Cozy and friendly

Food was perfect and the lady that works there is very sweet and gentle. By the ocean there are many restaurants but we loved this charming place and returned also the second and last night we spent in Sao Vincente

The first thing is not to be mislead by the high Tripadvisor rating, currently only 0.5 off full marks. In my opinion it's an OK place to eat if you're already in Sao Vincente but certainly not worth making a detour for. The food is standard Madeiran fare, well cooked, decent sized portions, relatively low prices and friendly service.

This place is not fancy, but the food is tasty and the atmosphere is warm thanks to the host. A few lovely orchids were next to the table we had dinner.

We ate twice in this lovely small place by the ocean. The lady the took care of us can speak English and French and made us feel at home. Everything is fresh, tasty and home made. We spent only 2 nights in Sao Vincente but decided to go there for dinner twice. Espada fish with banana was delicious, lapas and... More

You should visit Taberna de S. Vicente and try their sea food rise. A fair price for an excellent meal. Octopus is great as well.

We stopped here for a rest when driving from Funchal to Porto Moniz. Friendly service, clean facilities and a lovely time to relax and take in the grandeur of the mountain. There is easy parking just opposite and the sea is just a 2 minute walk away.

After looking into a few of the restaurants in the sea side, we've checked TripAdvisor and this one was clearly a winner, judging by the reviews. It's a bit further away from the sea side, but it has free parking and the looks of a typical portuguese Tavern. We had a warm welcome by the host. There is no daily... More

Very nice place. It's cosy, helpful and friendly staff, and mainly the food was spectacular. Everything freshly made and cooked to perfection. Cherry on the top: very reasonable price.

Good place to have lunch. It is the type of place you might from the looks pass, but you will not be disappointed with the food and fair prices.
