In fairness to Madeira I am from New Bedford where there are an infinite amount of Portuguese restaurants. The food is definitely good but being where I'm from it's not worth the 30 minute drive. However, if I was in the area I would definitely eat there again. You can never go wrong with Portuguese steak!

In their defense, I am not sure the person planning our party communicated well, but for a party of 20 we should have had more than one waitress. When we received our meal none of our appetizer or extra drink glasses had been removed so the table was extremely tight. Because we only had one waitress beverage service was really... More

After spending the day in New Bedford, we followed a recommendation to try this Portuguese orientated restaurant located in East Providence. We were promptly greeted and seated inside at our choice versus being seated outside. Our assigned waiter promptly welcomed us and took our drink orders. Apparently, the selection of beers is limited as I was unable to obtain a... More

They have a nice outside area for summertime dining. The waitress sat us at a table that needed to be wiped down. There were plenty of open tables. Why this one and why not just wipe down the table before seating us. The Portuguese stew was tasty, it is a Portuguese restaurant, so that was expected. We also ordered pasta... More

WE overall enjoyed our experience at Madeira, but have had better Portuguese food elsewhere in the area. The food was quite heavy, and although we ordered 3 dishes that sounded quite different, they seemed quite similar--various different proteins with potatoes mixed together, and almost identical seasonings. We were a large party of 11 and received excellent service.
