We had the beef espetadas and 'milho frito' and can recommend both!Very few tourists the night we were there which made... read more

Familiar service and, abobe all, excellent food: the meat and the traditional "milho frito" (more healthy than French fries/chips). To repeat again and again.

I recommend this restaurant for the 'espetada', specially the one with bones. The bread is good but not as good as in others restaurants in Madeira. A little pricy but recommended.

The "espetadas" (grilled beef in a spit with french fries) are oustanding, very good price quality ratio (12€,00 / person). The only set back is the road to get to the restaurant, not for the fainted hearts.

We were two families, one with 2 adults, a teenager and 2 kids; the other one with 3 adults, a senior and 2 kids. We asked for the typical "espetada" (skewer with sirloin meat), "bolos do caco" (typical regional bread cooked on the stone ), "milho frito" (fried polenta), fresh french fries and mixed salad (tomatoes, onions and lettuce).
