We stayed At the Pestana Grand and the restaurant is round the corner. We visited the restaurant for dinner and were warmly welcomed. The staff were pleasant and the place was bubbling with activity. The onion and tomato soup with poached egg is traditional of Madeira and was very enjoyable. Our main course was fish and prawns. This was well... More

Very handy for our hotel, the Pestana Grand, but having been here we would travel to get a table as the service and food were spot on and not to be missed. Bruno is the manager and runs a great place where the staff are as impressive as the excellent food, and none more so than Bruno himself. On our... More

Superb restaurant--pretty full most nights of the week. Close to Pestana Grand Hotel. The owner provides an excellent front of house service and all the staff are friendly and attentive. Wonderful steak and prawn dishes well priced especially now that the £ is strong verses the Euro Hot Rocks available outside where you can cook your own food at the... More

A friendly restaurant with a large menu to suit most tastes. Bruno and his staff aim to please. The food, wine, service and ambience are all very good. We will certainly return in the future.

For anyone who used this restaurant on the evening of Sunday 24 May, the slow service was not at all typical. The restaurant was host to a party of Russian tourists who were unbelievably rude and demanding to the detriment of all the other diners that evening, many of whom, like us, came from the Pestana Grand across the road....

We went on Friday and again on a Sunday. Both times Julio was playing guitar, and singing. Having been before, we knew the routine. Food is to die for, the entertainment is excellent, he knows how to play to an audience. Sing along to all the old songs, and a it of a novelty dance session. Bruno and his team... More
