Was not bad, but no fancy cooking. Calamares were so hard that I had to give them back. They proposed me for the same price something else. I took fish.

During our stay in Canico we tried all the restaurants in Estrada da Ponta da Oliveira and this was our favourite one, with the best menu, reasonable prices and the most charming and hospitable waiter. He seemed to be able to switch at different tables between very good english, german and french, as well as being portuguese himself, which was... More

We ended up eating here several times on our recent trip. Tried several things on the menu and it was all excellent, and served in a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. I particularly liked their take on the Madeira local specialty of scabbard with banana and passion fruit sauce. The homemade caramel pudding was a dream! The seafood spaghetti was the best... More

We visited this restaurant for dinner while on holiday and enjoyed the meal and the service so much that we returned on two other evenings. The restaurant had a good atmosphere and the waiter was very helpful in describing the various dishes and helping us choose some good Portuguese wine to have with our meals. We all had the steak...

We were visiting Canico from Funchal just for a day out and decided to have a good lunch here. We were not disappointed. The waiter was charming, spoke very good English and nothing was too much trouble. We all had bolo de caco, then espetadas for three and a pasta dish with accompanying drinks, followed by desserts and coffee. The... More

Excellent staff and beautiful food. I would highly recommend you try the "steak on the stone" and the homemade cassata!

We ate here 4 times and every time the food was very good and the waiters were very professional and friendly. The steak on a stone is a must, it's a nice experience and also very tasty. I absolutely recommend this place.

This is situated in the church square Canico Madeira, and has not long changed management. So decided to re patronise and found it of excellent value, service was prompt and food of the highest standard.

We recently returned from Canico and visited Lareira Restaurant twice. Our last visit was four years ago so we were hoping that the food would still be top notch! Although the restaurant has changed hands we were not disappointed....the espada and espetada on our first visit were excellent choices just as we remembered them. We started out by sitting outside... More

We liked this place. The staff were very friendly and the food good and reasonably priced. It was as another (less favourable) reviewer noted a bit chilly in the evening, but it was February when we went so really no complaints. We visited twice, sitting outside for lunch and inside in the evening.
