Surprising little gem

This AMAZING place is in the middle of a shopping centre. When my husband suggested we go to a shopping centre, I wasn't amused. Grumpy face all the way... until our food arrived. Great golden goose, hungry holy horse - food is astonishingly good. Recommend very very very very very very highly.

We have now returned from two weeks in Funchal and dined at the Barracuda on twelve of the fourteen evenings we were there (they were closed on the two Sundays). We also ate the odd breakfast or lunch at this welcoming establishment. It is always a treat to visit Dino and Luisa. Their children, Jo and Pedro are always a... More

My husband and I have been here on a number of occasions over the years and have always had really nice, good value, freshly cooked food. Dino, the owner always seems to have a smile on his face and makes you feel very welcome. Only eaten lunch but have been told by lots of people that the steak is one... More

I have been using this restaurant for a couple of years and it is now on the must visit list when in Madeira. There are many eating places in Madeira that are either very good and pricey or reasonable and cheap this place bucks the trend and is very good and very well priced, however the best thing about it...

Visited restaurant yesterday and it was very busy. Dino, the owner was very helpful and apologised for the delay as it was so busy. The food here is always freshly cooked by his wife and is always very good. Yesterday was no exception and the food was just as good as always. Price also very reasonable. Their fish and chips...

Have used this snack bar/restaurant for 6years or more and first time I've thought to review it. Dino ever smiling and ever prepared to provide for whatever you fancy to eat. I've even texted from the UK to have Luisa's chicken piri piri available on our day of arrival - and it's there. There is the option to sit out... More

Liked everything, the owner is lovely and his wife is also a brilliant cook. Try the beef wellington and fish and chips. Always a welcome, a family business, and very popular.
