Our best meal in Madeira

We ate here last night and had to write a review as the food and service were amazing. We tried limpets for the first time which were delicious as was the Espetada. This is a little restaurant above a supermarket but with sea views, very attentive staff who seem proud of the food and menu. We will... read more

In an unlikely place above Pingo Doce supermarket. Get an outside table for views over the sea. Tony and his small team do a great job. Friendly, attentive and good timings. The Steak is terrific...and I love cooking it on the hot stones.....My wife had the Espada, which was also very good. Good price...great night

Espada was good. The wine I have ordered also was decent. Service ok. Nothing wrong, but also nothing special.

We ate here on three occasions and the food and service were always terrific. The owner was very friendly and spent time talking with us - we felt very welcome. The restaurant is accessed by either a steep road or several flights of stairs but is well worth the effort.

Had a great " steak on the stone" here. Lovely food. Nice relaxed environment. Don't let the location above the car park put you off. Lovely views of the sea once you climb the stairs to the restaurant. Very relaxing evening, except for my two year old who was a monkey!

The service could have been better but the lovely tasting food made up for it. One of the waiters was a bit snappy and the manager never smiled. Wouldn't put us off returning though.

This place is hidden above Pingo Doce supermarket and is one of the best kept secret restaurants in Funchal. The staff here are very friendly and helpful; they were lovely towards my younger sister and when we visited again came out from the kitchen to say hello and to wish us a safe flight. The food was delicious. I shared... More

If you are looking for a "Local" lunch or evening dinner, the location , quality & quantity of the food supplied for the cost is quite acceptable. Wine prices are within reason.

Pretty restaurant up a short flight of steps from the car park behind the lido promenade . Nice views from its elevated position and a lovely breeze. Great choices of both meat and fish dishes and all competitively priced. We chose the mixed fish grill for two. The meal was served on a large platter and in all there were... More
