I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. After reading the reviews we ate there on our first night and then went back again a further 4 times. On each occasion the food was outstanding and the portions were generous, particularly the fish dishes, steaks and espetada. It's a family run restaurant and they speak excellent English and are very friendly... More

This restaurant was recommended in the guest book at our accommodation and I can see why. Easily reached using the fast coast road we were warmly greeted and the menu explained in excellent English. We had the goat stew on our first visit then returned for espetada and the special cut of tuna. The passion fruit cheesecake is recommended. Service... More

We ate here a number of times whilst staying in the area. We stopped off the first time just to look at the menu and were warmly welcomed and told about the food that they served. When we returned later we were not disappointed and over a number of visits enjoyed espetada and cataplana and on our last night one... More

We have vistied this location 2 times, each of them left us with the taste of stunningly fresh fish and vegetables and good ingredients, cooked perfectyl to the minute with freshest herbes and spices. I loved this "down-to-earth" cuisine without all the fancy stuff you normally get in "fine" restaurants. I almost cried once the plate was empty. But then... More

A great place for Madeiran food for good prices! Family run, excellent English spoken. We were even recommended to have only ONE espetada because two would have been too much food! They were right!

We spied the Rurais restaurant whilst driving around Prazeres and looking in vain for an establishment which served honest, traditional food. The menu board outside promised much and we were met by Mrs Bettencour who assured us that all the specials of the day were available. We returned in the evening and were not disappointed. the catalplana, a dish of... More

Both of these wonderful persons are very well assisted by their two sons. We... More

We visited this family-run restaurant many times during a stay in Prazeres and thoroughly enjoyed it - once we had found it we didn't go anywhere else! The waiter Louis(who speaks excellent English) was extremely helpful and happy to advise and accommodate whatever we wanted. The food off the grill is fantastic, large portions excellently cooked. The traditional stews (ordered... More

We were hungry and had a late lunch at Prazeres Rurais/Casa Grelhados Prazeres Rurais with wine. We were confused because the restaurant has moved from opposite the Church in Prazeres to the main entrance/exit junction to the fast road in Prazeres. The waitress recommended Feijoada a Portuguese dish which is a stew of beans with beef and pork. It was... More
