“Good selection of fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Phillipe at Tokos always has a very good selection of fresh fish, some of which you dont see at
other restaurants. I had 2 very nice turbot filets, accompanied by a selection of vegetables & choice of sauces. Reasonable selection of wines too.
Best to book in advance. Phillipe still a little crazy in a friendly way !

“Quality food, Quality wine, Quality presentation, Quality staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

My wife and I have. just spent 2 hours enjoying a meal of quite exceptional quality. Felipe and his staff delivered a dining experience that was memorable, truly exquisite and food that was devine in presentation and tastes. Felipe is rightly proud of his chef's and staff who work tirelessly to please and we would highly recommend this exquisite small restaurant that only casters for around 20 to 30 diners at a time ensuring every guest is special and every course exceptional. If you are after a cheap meal this is not the place for you; if you are seeking something special and don't mind paying the extra this is a restaurant worthy of your custom.

“Norhing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

All in an uninspiring dinner with my wife and son. The cooking is without much creativity and taste despite the fresh fish, meat and vegetables available. The starter was grilled calamari but they were soft and spongy. For maincourse we had grilled sole and tenderloin both were ok but the vegetables served were overcooked and tasteless and my sauce hollandaise was served cold and tasted of flour!

On the positive side was the tasteful decor of the restaurant, the kind staff and a very charismatic owner.

“A treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We dined at Tokos last night & what a wonderful experience it was. The chef/proprietor is a real character who certainly has his finger on the pulse. The ambience of the restaurant (which is cosy) is that of a well run family business where in my opinion the chef & his team pride themselves on customer service & the superb quality of the food. Felipe the chef ensures his staff are aware at all times of the customers needs & it has to be said that the two young waitresses were excellent. Felipe's small team of chefs produced dish after dish of excellent Madeiran cuisine and if you are a light eater then beware the servings are on the large side but believe me everything was absolutely delicious. The chefs special scabbard fish was a rich combination of flavours that blended together perfectly. Felipe works with his team teaching his skills not only to the chefs but also to his waiting staff even accompanying them in polishing silver & glasswear for table preparation. His banter with the customers is amusing & gracious. He really has made this into a total dining experience & it is a restaurant that I would certainly visit again not only was the food superb but the quality of service & atmosphere was delightful.
