Visited this restaurant for the 1st time tonight. Very nice and a bit different to all the others. Slightly more upmarket and fancier food. They do a special 3 course menu or one that includes wine with each course. Well worth trying but you will need to book a table I think. Staff very friendly added some photos of the... More

Beautiful place; great staff and food to die for. Found this place by accident and only had time for main course but well worth just experiencing that. Wish we could have stayed longer but had to leave to meet friends.

The food is great here and I can see what they are trying to do with the music. To the restaurant management - be careful - the night we went in July 2014 an accordion player was playing. He started off quite gently but then gathered momentum and towards the latter half of his time I felt like I had... More

Having read the superb reviews of this restaurant we were eager to try it and having booked last night went to try it out. We'll all I can say is it is simply superb, excellent service, wonderful food and brilliant service. We went for the 39 Euro option which includes selected wines with each course. On arrival we were shown... More

If you are looking to escape the monotony of meat with bland vegetables and a side salad this is the place to go. Food is excellently presented and tastes wonderful. Their "value offer" which is essentially a discount for having a 3 course meal (as all food is included) offers great value for money. We got this with the wine... More

Have been here several times for an evening meal. This time ran out of time on our visit so decided on a lunch instead. Fantastic value, interesting and well prepared food. There was no compromise on quality, and considering 7.50 euros for a main course, we were well pleased! No music at lunchtime, but plenty of atmosphere nevertheless, well worth... More

We booked this restaurant in the UK on the basis that the TA reviews were so strong. We were not disappointed. This place is amazing in terms of service, the food and the way they take care of the little details. The wine pairing is fantastic and there's plenty of it too! It was our 30th wedding anniversary and I... More

Agree with the majority of TA users about the quality of this restaurant. We ate outside in a lovely rustic cobbled area. The staff are very friendly, the live musician was of a high standard, and performed a lot of contemporary songs. The food and was of a very high standard and to our surprise our bill was less than... More

First visit to this place. Regret that vi have missed this one after being to Madeira 4 times before. They had a very good choice for making our own 3-dish course along with wine for all dishes. We picked what we wanted most from the menu wrt Starter, Main and Desert. The Scallops were superb. My wife never tasted Espada... More
