Traditional style food with great service in a nice location. The restaurant isn’t fancy, but the staff are very friendly and the prices are good. Easy to park, and close enough to walk to/from Ponta Do Pargo village. The poncha is potent and the menu...More

We drove to this place not expecting to find anywhere special to have a cup of tea, how wrong we were. Delicious lemon cake, and what a location! Delighted to see the herb garden on the way in with all the herbs clearly marked.

Great little cafe/restaurant with stunning views. Parked here in the morning and did a loop walk ( circa 3 km) to the light house then through the village. The lunch was simple but really good and the staff very welcoming. Enjoy the view😀

One of our favourites, we headed down winding narrow roads from Porto Moniz to find it closed. No hours on Tripadvisor (I've asked to correct this from information off Google). Hopefully this will help others avoid a wasted journey - the return to Funchal is...More

We came last minute after sunset and were still served by a friendly and welcoming staff. They speak at least four languages. The food was excellent, and the chocolate cake was amazing! Fantastic view onto the ocean and sunset. Don’t go too late as they...More
