A five star ... best in the Valley

After hearing from friends for years how great Madeira was and reading the TA reviews, we finally dined there last evening with special friends. It was marvelous! The contemporary décor is spectacular and unlike anything else in the Valley. The food was out of this world. And the service was... read more

Madeira is one of those restaurants that performs much better than expected. The food was very good, service was excellent, and being there on a Monday evening, the crowd was light and the atmosphere was nice. Our group sat out on the deck overlooking the Resaca(channel) and enjoyed the early May evening. One note about the service, they are there... More

Used TripAdvisor to find a place for my first time in the area. Was very impressed with the food and service. Four different dishes brought to our party; steak,sea bass, snapper, and some other fresh fish. Every dish was wonderful. Cerviche was excellent... A definite must stop

Food and service was good, but my sea bass was initially significantly under-cooked. Nice atmosphere

Great food for a Monday night. Has the duck with deep fried spinach. The spinach was really good, even though I don't like spinach. Will go back next time in town.

Excellent service, very good food. Great for special occasions. The only real problem I have, is I like eating out with my children and they lack a children's menu.

The ambiance, the food, the drinks and the service were excellent! Although pricey for our range it is definitely an option for when we are need of a special occasion. We always recommend it to those who are in search of something different, special and delicious. We have not been able to sit outside due to the weather on the... More

This is the first time I have ever clicked on "one of the best meals ever in a restaurant. We came here with a sister in law who lives in Brownsville. We were a family group of ten and only one person had any complaint. That was with the duck. Most of us had seafood and felt our meal was... More

As good a meal and dining experience as you'll have in major U.S. cities. Excellent service too. My halibut was cooked to perfection and so was my friend's New York Strip. Very nice wine selection and beautiful decor, too. Easily the best restaurant in Brownsville and one of the finest in the Rio Grande Valley and South Padre Island.
