We've been returning to Maderia for years and always include at least one meal in this friendly restaurant. Their speciality is certainly the beef. Beef on the stone is terrific. The service is friendly and the decor, whilst not being out of the ordinary is fine. It is always full and buzzing with diners. Definitely recommend.

My wife and daughter found this restaurant on a previous visit to Funchal. They took me here on our latest visit and I was suitably impressed. It is fairly crushed inside and there is no fantastic sea view but the staff are excellent and friendly and the food is also excellent. Don't be put off by the outside appearance as... More

The restaurant needs a bit of an uplift as it is a bit outdated and the tables were very close together but overall we enjoyed our evening meal here. We had the steak on the Rock and the staff were only too happy to show us how best to attack this once asked. It has to be said this is... More

It's been 3 years since we were last in Madeira and this was my number one restaurant to revisit. It has maintained its excellent food (both range and quality) and service. The prices are very reasonable too. It's true that some may find the tables a little close but this is no issue in my opinion, rather it adds to... More

I was sad to read some negative reviews, we have to say this was the most amazing restaurant to serve the best steaks ever. It was so tender and tasty, we ate here most nights whilst on out honeymoon. The staff are very friendly and the food takes some beating. great value and will be going again when we return.

Nice small and cosy atmosphere, the beef on the rocks with a bottle of wine is the best for me! Great friendly service and food!

The food is good and the service is almost too fast, the tables are too close so the ambience is a bit stressful

We went to the restaurant since we saw how well rated it was on this website. The staff is very friendly and welcoming which is great. The restaurant's food though is quite disappointing. One thing is very clear that this is not a fine dining restaurant by any means. It has a menus that seems to be catering more to... More
