“Fast service, beautiful food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Although the restaurant is crowded I don't believe it affected the atmosphere of the restaurant. The service was amazingly fast, I ordered a pudding and it was in front of me within the minute! It was really speedy! The food was really tasty and the menu offered a large range suiting many, and all age ranges. I truly recommend this restaurant, I will be going back very soon! You may want to book in advance, it can get busy and is very popular.

“FOOD OK BUT RESTAURANT NOISY AND OVERCROWDED”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

An evening meal of steak cooked on a stone seemed a good way of starting our holiday. Unfortunately, whilst my wife enjoyed her food I found my steak stringy. However, far more off-putting was the close proximity of other dinners being barely at elbow length from each other. It was a bit like dining in some overcrowded canteen! Not to my liking I am afraid even though I am sure the staff were being polite and hospitable when I could hear them above the noise!

“'Heaven on a Stone'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Thank you all staff for a superb first meal and last meal on our visit to Madeira. Courteous, friendly and efficient staff rounded off by a superlative fillet steak on the stone!! Who could ask for more and at a very reasonable price. Well done and highly recommended. Book your table or you may be disappointed.
