Madeiran food

Had garlic butter flatbread, chicken piri piri, Madeiran fish stew and biscuit cake (I was pretty hungry...). All delicious. I highly recommend trying this restaurant out.

I took my mum to here and can truly say the whole experience was a delight. As you enter, there are about 8 tables in the main restaurant and then through a door, many, many more tables in what they call the 'garden'. This is enclosed though (heated in the winter) and full of character. The menu is vast and... More

It was about 6-7 years ago when I landed in O'Picado for the very forst time. That was my mate's engagement party and the service we got was awesome! So family, so friendly and looking after you! Then, there was a long gap, but finally started visiting O'Picado again few weeks ago with my wife and all I can say... More

We decided to try this restaurant as a pre theatre meal - The Palace Theatre is handily placed just across the road. Also, we had read very good reviews. One reviewer said the garlic bread was the best in the world but I am afraid on the evening we went it wasn't up to standard. Not having eaten here before... More

This place is unique and I love it for that. Super service, inventive food well cooked and the best garlic bread I've ever had (I kid you not) Try the fish with banana it's certainly tasty!

Unfortunately our evening here was ruined by one of the waitresses. Due to a simple misunderstanding about drinks orders when we arrived, our table was made to suffer the entire evening. Her poor colleagues were left apologising for her and picking up the slack for her slow service and refusal to offer us drinks throughout the night. She was so... More

Used to love eating at this place. Unfortunately, we went as a party of 11 and had the worst possible experience. Our waitress was the most miserable person on the planet. She got flustered and annoyed as soon as we ordered. She ended up going off in a huff and that was the last we saw of her. So not... More

Been wanting to come here for a while so came on the "hottest day of the year". Upon arrival we were left standing in the doorway with no acknowledgement until a rather blunt, if a little rude waitress wearing ill fitting clothing of her own said here or garden. As it was a nice day we eagerly said garden. Well... More
