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...

The quality of the food is absolutely superb & impeccable. The service is just as great & the ambience makes it the total package. My favorite RGV restaurant for fine dining. Great for a romantic dinner. Love it!

Very nice place, great service but very expensive and hard to find, the appetizers we ordered weren't that great and were over priced as well as the drinks we had. Nice place but prices are too high for the quality they're serving.

We were in Brownsville on business for a few days and on the last day wanted a different cuisine from traditional Mexican food. We located Madeira on Tripadvisor. It was Monday evening and they were busy, but fit 6 of us in. When we arrived, we were greeted enthusiastically. The atmosphere was warm, very sophisticated, and welcoming. If you have... More

We found this place through TripAdvisor and confirm good reviews about Madeira. The restaurant is somewhat difficult to find, but with help of my GPS we located it ok. Food was great. We loved the salmon tartar and a steak. Portions are moderate, service very nice. We had a table outside, which was very nice. Over all a nice place... More

Madeira has a stunning view of elegant decorations and delightful first class meals. It was my pleasure to be able to enjoy the fine dining that is served. Upon arriving to Madeira, one will obtain a unique feeling that they left Brownsville and are indulging in an exquisite evening. Even though one can see it from across the Resaca of... More

Just perfect. Everything from start to finish was just wonderful!! The service was great. Had the foie gras and it was decadent. Grilled duck was delicious. Will surely come back again.

Waterside restaurant with great ambiance and excellent service. Serving a creative and original, ever changing, menu which is eclectic in influence and surprising in presentation and on the palate. Mushroom cheviche, tuna tartare, shrimp tacos are delightful. The seafood is handled beautifully, vegetables are ideal accompaniments, and the sauces are grand. But be careful not to have too much, as... More
