“As good as ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us in 2012 by our friendly local taxi driver. We have eaten here several times since then. We were advised that it is the place that the Portuguese use for family celebrations etc. We were certainly not disappointed and a table on the terrace is a MUST, The waves crashing against the rocks, a beautiful sunset, excellent service, food and wine make for a perfectly relaxed Madeira evening. The entrance to the restaurant is certainly not the most stylish in the world.

Gomes is a real treasure with a great sense of humour. We can recommend the steak and any fish dish is perfectly cooked. The Chef should be complimented on the consistency of the food served from the kitchen.

“A very good meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

The staff provide excellent, friendly service.
The cover is a meal in itself - both cold and hot tasters.
The meal is excellent, with excellent vegetables.

“Come for the Food the atmosphere is non existent.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We sat in this bland hotel cafeteria (with tablecloths however) waiting for our food for what seemed an eternity. We had decided by this point the review would be poor to average. The food arrived and immediately the review had to go up to Very Good. Had the staff and the actual place been any good then we may have managed a higher rating. However the austere staff and sitting in a hotel breakfast room meant that was never going to be. I had the skewered beef which was cooked to perfection and the vegetables were outstanding, well seasoned and plentiful with potato cooked three ways !!

In summary come for the food and nothing else as realistically there isnt anything else to come for !!!

“Oh dear, what a disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We had been recommended to this restaurant and were looking forward to the visit but oh dear...it turned out to be the dining room extension to the local hotel...nothing wrong with that normally but I ordered the spaghetti bolognese...what a disaster...it was merely minced beef on overcooked spaghetti?/noodles. My husband ordered the tournedos which he said was excellent. The wine list needs a translator, on the whole disappointing for its reputation. Am really sorry we do like to support local enterprise but....
