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!

We came across this restaurant by chance as it is directly across the road from Reids. We passed when it was closed but it appealed as it was small and the menu varied. We took a chance of visiting without a reservation and were lucky to get a table. We would recommend booking. Our choice from the menu was the... More

Small but excellent restaurant. Food was perfect. Good choice and delicious! Needs to be booked in advance as it is small and very popular. Location - opposite Reids Hotel.

A nice, quiet and small restaurant which is not that easy to spot from the main road. We booked a table and they came to our hotel to pick us up which was a really nice touch. We had a variety of starters and mains and were all very good. I would recommend booking as it is only a small... More

Absolutely excellent meal here tonight. We had to take a booking for 6.30pm as it was full otherwise. Small intimate restaurant for 30 diners . Superb atmosphere - excellent service - great food. Lots of regulars which is a good sign. You must book - several days in advance - so be warned. Great selection of a la carte dishes... More
