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!).

First tried steak on the stone here about eight years ago and always visit when in Madeira. It never fails to please the fillet steak is so juicy and thick. The service is very good and you are greeted as if you're an old friend returning.

Still the best restuarant on the outskirst of Funchal. Excellent quality meat and fish, good choice of food, attentive and friendly staff - and for us, best of all, they can serve gluten free food. If you have a huge appetite try the ribeye steak, though for us the steak on a stone never fails to satisy.
