Lovely New Year Dinner

After a lunchtime visit we were so impressed with the food and service we booked a table for New Year's Eve a few days later. We were not disappointed - an excellent 3 course meal with plenty of wine etc. for a very good price. With an outside terrace as well as pretty inside rooms this is a very... read more

Great corner spot on the edge of the old town perfect to people watch whilst eating traditional Madeiran food. We ate at a street side table, great food & service. There is also a first floor terrace that looks very nice.

Visited this restaurant for an early Sunday dinner and sat on the terrace watching the world go by. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The food was well presented and tasty. Overall an enjoyable experience.

We've been visiting Madeira since 2009 and this restaurant is always the first on our list to visit. The staff are very friendly and the food is always high quality. We normally stay for a week and visit the Tapassol at least 3 times.

We found this restaurant on our first trip to Madeira 14 years ago and have been returning ever since. Whilst quite far from our usual hotel it is worth the effort. There is a room downstairs, another upstairs and a covered balcony upstairs. The balcony tables are quite close together and it can feel a little cramped when busy (which... More

My husband has coeliac disease so when we visited Madeira recently we were a bit apprehensive about eating out. We need not have worried. The waiting staff were very understanding and confirmed that our choices would be safe for him to eat. The food was superb and service could not be faulted. We ate there several times during our stay... More
