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 started out by sitting outside... More

Extremely bad service, very long waiting time, rude staff... And a waiter asked me: "what do you expect for such a small price?" There are much better restaurants on Madeira.

lovely food at reasonable prices- The starters are huge. Mushrooms with large prawns were yummy! Also the soups were very tasty. Mains were good- too full for desert! Wines very reasoable too.

Nice choice of local dishes and pastas. Price really good and wine also very reasonably priced. Friendly staff who don't push you to finish or order another course.
