A great restaurant with excellent food and attentive caring staff. Need to book as it gets really busy. On arrival you are treated to a Madeira wine and when you leave there is a guess the flavour liqueur. The main man really does a grand job making every person feel special.

Disappointed to read lwood111 review as this is not a reflection on Bruno who is the owner. Bruno is an excellent host and looks after all his customers extremely well. Many go there many times as I have who are regular visitors to this wonderful island and experience the courteous people who live on the island. I have certainly never... More

The food was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Also live entertainment, a classical guitarist, was excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Real Canoa

We are in Madeira twice each Year. Each and every time we are here we visit Bruno and his team 2 or 3 times for each stay. There is a wide choice of interesting and tasty dishes on the menu. The meals are very good and attractively presented but as much as anything we really enjoy the warm welcome we... More

Have been visiting Madeira for 10 years, have used this restaurant many times in recent years and have never had a bad meal.

We spent 24 days in Madeira, having dinner in a lot of different restaurants. This is the only place that completely missed out and served me a meal with gluten in. I explained to the waiter that I can not have anything with gluten in, it makes me sick for days. And still they managed to bring my fish dish... More

Enjoyed our meal, never have been disappointed. Bruno and his staff make for an enjoyable evening. We did have to wait awhile for our food but not complaining. This was the first time we used the free lift there and back but our hotel this visit was further away.

Good food and wine. We had main course and dessert. The service is excellent. We had a really great evening there. We'll visit this restaurant again. Do not be surprised if there's no free table. All six of us agreed this was a good choice.
