5 stars in a little town, great surprise!

The restaurant looks at the Sabal Palm resaca, very modern building, and good taste decoration. The food is thought for taste and beauty. A great place for a special celebration. The cost is a little high but the service and food deserves it!

We recently visited Madeira Restaurant for a special birthday party with out of town guests. We had a large table and spent several hundreds of dollars. One of the guests brought in an expensive cake and was told by the hostess that we cannot eat the cake at their restaurant. We asked to talk to the manager, but he and... More

You will not believe your eyes when you arrive. It is set on a Resaca in a housing project but the restaurant is elegant with the best service and food in the area. If you are looking for an elegant dining experience, this is the place to go.

Excellent menu, Not cheap by any means, but worth the price. Brownsville is a late-dinner town, and we were relatively early (6:30) and the only ones in the restaurant. Strong focus on Spanish-themed (not Mexican) seafood. The Ceviche Madeira was a knockout as was the snapper filet in a spicy sauce. Desserts extraordinary. Bring your wallet, but you will leave...

My husband googled " best restaurants in Brownsville" and Madeira come on top of the list so he made a dinner reservation for our anniversary. The Google results were correct. The service was right on point, the food was fantastic and the drinks were very smooth.

Jose Miguel made the evening absolutely perfect with his professional, yet personal attention. The sea bass, lamb chops and ceviches were incredibly delicious. What an outstanding place to spend an evening in elegance as well as first class cuisine.

Lovely location and fine dinning with excellent wine selection and menu choices. I had dinner here with friends and the food and cuba libres were great. It's not cheap though, even though a friend was paying. This is a place to splurge and enjoy a night like no other in town.

I have higher expectations of this restaurant. Fine dining is both about the food and the experience. I found my dining experience here lacking. My waiter is a manager (yes I was surprised when I found out). Did not offer any kind of garnish for my glass of water (other tables were offered slices of grapefruit or cucumber.) I was... More
