You need to book as it gets full. Nothing gourmet, just good food at good prices. Also good price for wine.

This small restaurant was a treat on our vacation. We were passing when we saw the menu and called the attention. We could not get a table for tonight it is a very busy restaurant, we booked for the next day and really was worth the wait for both the food and the service was wonderful. We went back there...

We loved O Tonel but the new site has none of the atmosphere of O Tonel and their Welsh chef has gone back to the UK. We went at the end of our break, for a roast Sunday Lunch. Think of catering packs and school meals. We were so disappointed. If you go stick to their Madeiran food. The staff... More

Very reliable, small restaurant. Has been going a few years now and never disappoints. Menu caters for English tastes as well as having Portuguese dishes. Eg they do a Sunday roast! I usually opt for the Portuguese pork dish that is served in a pig shaped dish. It's quirky and delicious. The staff are super friendly and nothing is too... More

This small and rather plain restaurant is on the main road between the Pestana Village and the Miramar hotels. Don't be put off as t makes up for it's lack of atmosphere with amazing food. This was our second time there, and if anything the food was even better.. The highlights were the green lipped mussels in Spanish sauce (... More

This hotel was just 5 mins walk from our hotel Pestana Carlton. Its a very nice restaurant with smiling and kind people serving food. The food was traditional and served with much love. The price was also reasonable!
