“Another Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

fine dining experience, excellent waiter attention and superb table. Can be a little cramped when busy but well worth any discomfort.

“Great food and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We have been eating in this restaurant for 19 years and we have never had a disappointing meal!
The girls are all charming, polite and speak good english. The food is excellent quality and well cooked and the portion sizes are generous. The wine list is all one could ask for but we usually settle for the very reasonably priced house wine. Others have mentioned the beef and we agree that the meat is always excellent. We have never had any cause to complain and make a point of always eating here when we visit Madeira each February. I am amazed to read the review by the disappointed couple.

“Fantastic beef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

If you like beef, order their Espedata Madeira style. This is huge chunks of fillet beef on a skewer and will not disappoint. Comes with a good fresh salad, delicious roast potatoes and maize cubes plus carrots and beans. Very good value at EUR15.95 – you won’t have room for anything else. Good house wine and coffee. Try to get a table outside. Inside is too brightly lit and noisy when busy. Welcoming and efficient service.
