A very big restaurant! We went with our little boy. Very nice service. The food was delivered quick. The meat (spike without fat) was very tender!

This place is loved by locals and visitors alike. It has a small museum which depicts an old Madeira home, evenings with folk dancing and one of the best espetadas on the island.
