Having visited this restaurant a few times, over a couple of visits I can say I've never had a bad meal. The food is always well presented and tasty. You sometimes have to wait due to how busy it gets which is only a good thing in my opinion

Have been to Real Canoa many times over the years and on this occasion the food was more than disappointing. We were a party of four and we all felt the same. The entertainment was good and Bruno and his staff were, as always, very welcoming and attentive. But we did wonder if Bruno is now relying more & more... More

Really excellent food both lunchtime and evening. Beautifully presented and really good value. Sangria is excellent. Bruno the owner and his staff are very welcoming and can't do enough for you. The final test at the end of the meal is good fun too. Well worth a visit

Once my wife and I tried out this restaurant on the 3rd day of our holiday we returned every day. The owners Bruno and his wife are excellent hosts with 5 star levels of service. We would recommend the espetada (grilled meat skewers) and meat on the hot stone + madeira's best wines. Excellent choice for a light lunch or... More

Obvious from your first sight that a restaurant with this many reserved tables must be something special, is correct. Bruno and his team make you very welcome, his chef is first rate, and the quality of his meat and fish very high. Book a table to be sure of a seat. Talking to people eating there, the restaurant is popular... More

We would like to think that our title best describes the philosophy that Bruno and his team apply to this very special restuarant. Each customer is greeted either by Bruno or one of his senior staff on entering, shown to their table and immediately offered a glass of Madeira wine from the house. This to us then set the tone...

Have eaten at this restaurant many times Bruno is always very welcoming and the staff very confident and friendly. There have been complaints regarding the amount of covers Bruno takes and we did suffer on this occasion with very slow service and a forgotten drink however the food was delicious and the first let down after many meals. We took... More

Food was good and the wait staff and host were very nice and made all guests feel like regular customers. Live music. Reasonably priced.

Staying locally we had avoided this restaurant because it is very noisy and crowded in the evening with the British guests from the local hotel so we tried it on our last day. Not too busy so we were able to pick a table. My husband had the Monk Fish curry but it was too mild for him and required... More
