“Sunset”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is recommended as the place to see the sunset, unfortunately it was very overcast so we didn't see it, but check timings for bookings if you want to see that. There were 13 of us so it might have been a bit too much to handle as its a small intimate restaurant so service was understandably a little slow. Food was average and by that I mean it seemed nothing special. The kids all had chicken breast and most of the adults had steaks. served with green beans, carrots and fries.

“good views and meal. courtesy minibus there and back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Like most other restaurants, a courtesy minibus pick up and return was provided to diners. The views across the island from this place were truly great. We arrived in time to see the sun setting. Watched aircraft landing at the airport, the ferry leaving for Maderia, and the general hustle and bustle around the area. Truly worth a visit. Food was vgood. They offered couvert starter of olives, toasts, tuna spread and bread for a few euros, which was great as a full starter was usually too much with a main meal. Steak was rather lightly cooked for medium but tasty all the same. House wine, white, was really good and inexpensive. Service, excellent, not intrusive but always ready.

“Great food with outstanding view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Panorama enjoys probably one of the most oustanding restaurant views in Porto Santo. We dined there once and, whilst noticing that the menu is not overwhelmingly rich in typical dishes and appetisers, decided to try two specific dishes proposed by the restaurant: Lamb chops on a pepperoni bed with sweet potatoes and a "home-style" cod with chickpeas inside a home-made special crusty bread. Both were absolutely excellent.
Service was correct and price within expectation.
The restaurant may provide treansfer service on request, we didn't use it because we had a rented car.
One never tires of absorbing the stunning landscape of Porto Santo and its bay, doing it while enjoying a very good dinner, with well imagined dishes, by sunset, was for sure a very pleasant experience.
