It's an average restaurant the meat with bone has lots of fat I do not recommend it. Despite of the staff suggestion that was the most tasty and with more flavor. Service is good and with a great view though.

The quality of the meat served at Restaurante Santo António is very good. I have asked for “espetada em pau de louro” and it was wonderful. The waiters were very friendly and efficient. The wine list was good.

Although a bit far from Funchal, it's totally worth a visit. The view is amazing and the food really delicious. We went for one espetada for two persons, together with side dishes and it's sufficient. Expect garlic and medium cooked meat. Traditional place with a...More
