Sunday lunch

A brilliant Sunday lunch experience. Traditional roast meats with Yorkshire puddings and a varied selection of vegetables. There is a Madeiran flavour to this and the house wines are recommended. It's a small establishment; very friendly and well worth a visit.

A little café which doubles as a restaurant at night. Small, a bit cramped, too brightly lit for being described as "romantic" but excellent food and brilliant service at a reasonable price. Go there!

I found this restaurant by accident. It is opposite Reid's Hotel. This is quite a small establishment and I believe it to be fairly new. You will need to book as it appears to be very busy. It serves Portuguese and "International Cuisine". This leans heavily towards British cuisine and was very popular with mature British holiday makers. The menu... More

We were fortunate in getting the last available table as we hadn't pre-booked. My husband specially enjoyed the Shepherd's Pie and I had a seafood crepe which was delicious - both served with a selection of beautiful fresh vegetables. The lemon meringue pie was sheer indulgence and my husband enjoyed his rice pudding. An impressive menu with traditional roasts served... More

First time we have visited x-Tonel and we weren't disappointed. Called as we we were passing and got the last table, unfortunately near the door and as a consequence was pretty draughty. Suggest you book and get a better table. Food was very good. I had the cottage pie which after 5 weeks of rich food was a welcome change.... More

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