If you want to eat where the locals eat….this is the place. A menu of utter simplicity, skewered meats, salad, fries, garlic bread, maize cubes. That's pretty much it. But the steak is wonderful, the salad (lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion) the freshest I have tasted. Bread, fries and maize... excellent accompaniments. No starters and you'll probably be too full for... More

Great local place of the beaten track but just wonderful food simply cooked and served well. We had both the beef and chicken and they were really very good they also have a place at Camara De Lobos if you are nearer that area.

Located outside Funchal, in Estreito de Câmara de Lobos, you will find a very cozy, although always crowded, restaurant serving traditional Madeira cuisine. A "must visit" place.

Thee food is very good, but it's a little bit expensive if you choose a bottle of wine and desert. "Sangria" is not very good there...

First time we came to this restaurant and was told this was the starter of the famous espetada in Madeira. Simple restaurant, really nice meat and food and friendly priced especially compared to the neighbors a few hundred meters away. Staff was friendly and service was fast. Worth coming back.

It's a bit to difficult to find but is worth the visit. The food was very good and the staff is friendly. We choose the meat "kebab" and it was excellent, as it was the fried corn.
