Spent the month of December on the island, went to this restaurant four times, disappointed on two occasions, the meat tender, but tasteless, possibly frozen meat, did not enjoy at all. Recommend o Lagar restaurant, just down the street, first class.

We arrived early at 7:00pm and only a few tables were occupied. The place had a warm ambience with many smiling waiters. We ordered and rapidly had some delicious espetada done to perfection! Rare means rare! Excellent.

Off the tourist trail but by far the best espetada near Funchal. Despite another review it is far from expensive and excellent value for money. Took our family of 11 and our pre teens thought the food and experience fabulous. Will be back next year.
