Tradional food from Madeira

Very good! Food, service and music. We had a chicken Picata with Tracy Chapman in the background. Really friendly with all the locals popping in for a chat and a drink. Definitely a "I'll be back" place.

I came across this restaurant when walking down the steep hill from Monte to Funchal. I stopped here for a beer and then decided to order the dish of the day which was "Feijoada a Transmontana". A Portuguese dish made with beans, rice, pork, beef and cabbage. This came in a dish large enough to feed 4 people; It was... More

This restaurant/pub is a great place to spend your evenings if you're not in the mood for a downtown restaurant. The main dishes and the bread are very delicious -especially the house special and the traditional espetada. The service is good and makes you feel welcome. There are many locals who make this place different from all the restaurants in... More

This is a great traditional place to eat if you visit Monte. The owner and his wife are very polite and will make sure everything is okay throughout your visit. We got lapas to start as it is their traditional dish and weren't disappointed! Then got a medium picado with chips Minho and salad to share which was more than... More

This restaurant is halfway down the toboggan run and therefore not directly in the touristic centre as most tourists will only zoom past on the wicker sledge. We were the only non-Portugese guests and the food was lovely! A huge portion of the typical espetada (beef kebab) was delicious. Very friendly and attentive service.

The two brothers that are managing this restaurant are legendary. Their whole family is working there - so you can get the best traditional food of Madeira in this restaurant. As the name already indicates, the atmosphere and the interior furnishing are rustic. But if you want to have a great evening with good drinks and food I can highly... More

He mixed a marvellous Poncha, she created a very good meal and there vere also extra good dishes while waiting. Take a walk down from Monte and stay at the restaurant. Once, told the me the manager, the restaurant was fully reserved... More
