The best restaurant in Brownsville and one of the top five in the Valley. The service is impeccable, the restaurant is managed very well, the food is top notch across the menu, and the location is perfect. It is one of the few waterside restaurants not on the island - making full and perfect use of its setting along beautiful... More

Had a great experience when I had dinner here. The food tasted great and the staff was very attentive. The restaurants ambiance was also great. Dim lights helped create an intimate setting and there is a great view of the resaca as well as a great looking patio. The prices are high in relation to other Brownsville restaurants however they...

Best meal in the RGV!!!! I've been there twice and each meal was wonderful. I had the Seared Sea Scallops, Caramelized Onions And White Wine Sauce and it was great! We also had a bottle of Prisoner which is a red wine. For dessert, we ordered the traditional Crème Brulee that was out of this world! There were 9 of... More

If you are looking for a romantic dinner place or to show off a good place in Brownsville, this is it. They have a simple menu but with great options.(I recommend the lamb) They have a great and relax atmosphere inside (dim lights) and outside (resaca view) the restaurant. I always say that the service is what makes the experience... More

Been here twice, excellent food and wines. Bit pricy for me but for a special occasion it is great. Intimate place didn't see children either time, but they are aloud, its more of a grown up place.

The restaurant is a lovely space with interesting art.the service is good. There is a decent wine list with some fairly priced tasty wines. The sea bass and abalone are always good. Any special is good. The foie gras is very good as is the abalone. Pear tart not yo be missed. Flaming table side dessert is a kitschy but... More

We returned to Madeira and found it as wonderful as we did the first time. The Ceviche Madeira is a delicious start and the Copa Helada with Madeira 5 is a great finish. Anything you order in between will be perfect but the Ahi Tuna and either Beef Tenderloin are excellent choices.

The dimmed lit atmosphere and superb quality of food and wait service make this a must dining experience for any special occasion. The reason I say special occasion is because the price is commensurate with the quality (perhaps a few might say a bit too pricey-but it is no more expensive than very fine dining in a big city such...
