“Forget the simple appearance, the food is delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012 via mobile

Another great tip from tripadvisor. Staying at estalagem ponta do sol and looking for somewhere local we found magnalena. The terrace is divine at sunset eventhough the chairs are uncomfortable and the umbrellas torn. Have the lapas, a local shellfish and the red snapper. All lovely and fresh and delicious at around 79 euro for two with 3 glasses of vino verde. If you are sporty the walk from estelagem ponta do sol is 45 m along breathtaking views and through 3 tunnels. Will save you the 8 euro taxi ride.

“ok ,but not as good as the other place in lugar debaixo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

after visiting the other place last week in lugar de baixo which was amazing !! we felt that the prices on the Cantinho da Madalena are a little on the high side !! it just doesnt have that family run feal to it as you expect in a small island such as Madeira !! so next time i know where to go !!

“Speak only English and be well treated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011 via mobile

The fish is fresh, it's true, and the price is fair in European general terms - almost expensive for Madeira, though. To sum up: the basic traditional Portuguese food, grilled fresh fish (including cheap sardinens), cooked potato and boiled vegetables. As far as service is concerned, the staff seemed much more comfortable and patient while speaking English with the two Swedish girls next to us.

“Good Food: Great Sunset.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2010

We did not stay at the hotel but ate there a few times. Food was ecellent. Two large, well cooked, fresh tuna steaks each portion were delicious as were the steaks. The food was well presented and served. It was all fresh and the veg was ample and properly cooked. Unusually the veg was included in the price. The only quibble was the couvert was tuna, brad and oil, even if fresh tuna was ordered as a main. We did not have many deserts, as we were full first, but the creme caramel was good. Wine list was good and reasonably well priced. The view of the sunset, from the balcony, is superb. Well worth a visit.
