We stumbled across this little gem on our way to take a look at another restaurant we had been recommended. We'd been looking for somewhere to try one of the local specials, Steak on Stone, and not only was it on the menu but we could see a number of diners enjoying the dish through the windows. The following night... More

This restaurant was recommended to us in a Thomson guide so we decided to give it a go. Definitely book at this restaurant if you want to eat there as when we first tried we couldn't get a table and booked for another evening. The staff were all smiles and very attentive. My boyfriend has a nut allergy and they... More

Have visited this restaurant each time we've been to Madeira - this is our fifth year - and the standard remains as high as ever. Great steak-on-the-stone and espetada, staff very welcoming and reasonably priced food and wine.

Our rep recommended this place for our first night. We had the fixed price menu, 24 euros each including 3 courses, wine, coffee and a liqueur. The food was delicious, we both had steak on the stone. Thick cut, juicy sirloin, so tender it was more like a fillet. The only downside is the atmosphere and location, but it is... More

The steak on stone is a must! Very tender and tasty, and it is fun to prepare it the way you like it.

Really good fun cooking your own fillet or sirloin steak. Nice meat and good explanation of what to do provided by friendly staff.

House speciality is steak served on a red-hot stone which provides the heat to cook the meat offcuts.Fabulous steak but this is unsophisticated eating (and ranked too high!).
